I was out scouting some farm land for bowhunting next year. Started walking away from the house toward the wooded area. I got about 10 yards away from the barn and BAM! A freakin HUGE whitetail, probably 4-5 years old, and around 160-ish points gross jumped out of his little safe haven right next to the barn.
I called the farmer a couple days later just after a rain and he said he saw fresh tracks around the barn, so I know I haven't scared away the big guy. Hope to have him on my wall after next year's bow season.
