I have always enjoyed hunting the week of Thanksgiving with our family in the south. It has been a tradition ever since I was a kid that family hunts come first and if there isn't any family to take that day, my Dad or I get to hunt for ourselves. This year it turned out to be just one day that one of us would be able to hunt, but we made it count. Since my Dad already had a Georgia buck on the ground, I was going to be the shooter and we were headed to my Dad's favorite field that had some fresh cut corn in it. As we climbed up the box stand 2 hours before dark, deer were already feeding in the standing beans so we had to be extra careful and take our time. We made it in undetected and the deer started filtering out of the Georgia Pines. A wide 8 pointer with broken brows was the first buck to enter the field but I did not recognize the 4 yr. old and he needed another year or two so we passed him. It turned out that was the right call, because right behind him was another massive 10 pointer that was much older that we also didn't know. My Thompson Center roared and the buck folded up like a cheap knife, a southern bonus buck was on the dirt and Team Ozonics had another buck under their belt! -Jeff
