A Day To Remember
By Kristin Morris
My hunt took place on my family’s El Cazador Ranch in Jim Hogg County in Deep South Texas. My father and I had seen this deer two years earlier and knew this was the year to take him. Though he was old when we had first seen him, he had grown tremendously over the past couple of years.
Since I wasn’t going to have much time to hunt during the December rut, I had flown down from Auburn University, where I was attending college, to hunt during the bonus time granted my our Managed Lands Permit. The wide 10-pointer I eventually took was the primary buck we were looking for, but several other old bucks were also fair game. For a day and a half, we saw hardly any mature bucks. The bucks were fat and well fed and just weren’t moving. Then on the evening of October 20, our luck changed.
