Well after an AWESOME week at Panther Lake Hunting Lodge, Team Bama put another MS stud on the ground! What a week it was! Seen more bucks than we did in the Midwest. Steve shot a old brut, I missed a monster 10pt at 325 yards and closed the chapter on the last day with this Big Mississippi 8!
It's towards the tail end of the rut in this area of MS, we were down to the last hunt and Melvin Hinson owner of "Panther Lake Hunting Lodge" suggested us to try something different and pop a Big Game Blind in the middle of a road in one of his thickest areas on property. He felt confident we would kill in this spot. Man was he spot on! We weren't in blind more than 1hr 20 min. when we heard crashing from a buck chasing a doe in the thicket to our left. They came across the rd in front our our blind and didnt have enough time to get on him with the camera. We could still hear the buck grunting and chasing the doe in the woods when they finally made their way back towards the road and circling around a small food plot. The buck then finally presented himself at about 80 yards, as soon as Steve was on him I had to take a quick shot. The Winchester found its mark and put'em down! It feels good to have some redemption after missing that big 10. This may have been the most fun week of hunting I have ever had and we can't wait to get back next year! TOP NOTCH place with excellent food and lodging and they got the deer! Check them out for one of the best hunting experiences you will find in MS!
