Not sure what was going on at the farm this year. Had a couple older age class bucks earlier in the year showing up on a regular basis but about mid July most buck activity seemed to cease, they just weren’t showing up on the cams. This was for all but a handful of 1.5yr olds.
Work had me tied up tight for all of our early archery season but I was thankful to have the first week of our firearm season off.
Opening morning was a busy one, they were running everywhere in the dark. I could hear bucks grunting in several different directions. Once daylight broke activity slowed down but you’d still see young bucks pushing does around. Had deer around me all morning and that continued to be the case going into the afternoon.
Right around 1 a doe came out behind me and milled around for a bit, her fawn joined her shortly after. They were there for the better part of an hour. Heard a deer walking and assumed it was the doe or fawn so I didn’t pay it much heed. I caught movement about 50yds to my right and saw it was the doe/ fawn. Turned back to the noise and this buck had come out of the thick cover at 15yds behind me. He caught me moving and spun around but only went another 15yds till he stopped to look back……..his last mistake. One 150gr Accubond thru the heart and it was all over.

Can you use a centerfire rifle now in Indiana? Or did you use a TC pistol?

I think you’d have to use a Shamans tape measure to get 135 out of that buck……🤔🤣
Heads off getting turned into a euro so I can’t measure but would be very surprised if it got up to 130.

Yes, a 308 rifle. On private land most centerfire rifle chambering are legal but there are still restrictions on state owned land.
