Folks at Tara Wildlife have once again shown us what southern hunting & great hospitality is all about . You know the hunting is phenomenial when 10 out 15 hunters in camp harvest deer on a 3 day hunt with others passing numerous shooters with several misses.  With a cold front blowing thru we finally had the north east wind needed to hunt the legendary stand (trail of tears), due to all the giant bucks missed over the years. Bobby dropped us off well before daylight & we followed the bright eyes thru the dense fog. Not long after daylight a huge buck worked his way down the swamp privet in our direction. After a few tense moments the buck turned and offered no shot. Ten minutes later we saw a huge framed buck ripping up a small sapling. Thinking it was the same buck we had just seen earlier responding to the MAD Rip Growl grunt call. We were pleasantly surprised to see this buck was much bigger. In a matter of seconds he was headed to the nut all tree 20 yards to our left. Drawing my bow the buck sensed something was wrong & took 2 big leaps before stopping to try and pick us out. The Mossy Oak Treestand worked it's magic as he accepted us as part of the river bottom. This would be his fatal mistake. Quartering away at 30 yards the PSE Full Throttle gave him zero chance to duck the rage tipped carbon force arrow when I touched the trigger. At the shot we knew that we wouldn't be waiting long to recover my Mississippi Tara Wildlife buck. 
  
Bobby showed up & was glad to show up and see a six foot wide blood trail that painted his way to happiness. A few minutes later Bobby & team reconyx let the celebration begin!
A big thanks goes out to Bobby & the staff at Tara for all they do for us .the hunting ,food & fellowship is first class and an honor to be involved with . We can't wait to share this footAge with everyone on dream season the journey !
