Two days after I killed an IL giant, I was headed straight south to Tennessee to muzzle load hunt with one of my good friends, Mike Barker. I was coming off the all time high of my best bow kill to date and was ready to have some fun southern style! The first morning in Tennessee was action packed to say the least. We saw over 15 deer and passed a real pretty three year old 8 point. We also saw one mature buck but was a little out of range for the TC Omega. The evening was a little slower with only doe showing in the field.

The second morning of the hunt we were sitting over standing corn, CRP, and green food plots. After about the ninth doe that came by us, I decided to take one with the TC. I hadn’t shot the TC since January and it performed beautifully. The mature doe ran about 50 yards and piled over. An hour later we had three bucks come into the field. One of them looked like a three year old management deer. My buddy has an awesome place in Tennessee and he is trying to manage it right. He has done a lot of grunt work in planting CRP grasses, corn, beans, green food plots, ect. He isn’t a farmer so he plants all this only for the deer. One thing he is trying to do is get the bucks with lesser racks out of the deer herd. This three year old I was watching had an eight point side on one side and a spike on the other. We watched him for a while and I text my buddy Mike and asked him if he wanted me to take the deer. Instantly he responded with YES! So after a few more minutes of filming him, I let the TC Omega put its second deer in the dirt for the morning! All of the meat for both the doe and buck were put to great use and will help feed many families!  

What a great, FUN, southern hunt. It took me back to a lot of my childhood memories growing up hunting in north Alabama and southern Tennessee. Now were heading back to IL to see if big brother can get him one of those IL giants!
