After hunting a bottom land bordering the Cache Creek in California's A-zone for nearly two months I found this buck headed to his bed around 8:00 a.m. on the first day of Fall. As I was still hunting a travel corridor I bumped him at 45 yds. He took off just as I brought my rifle up and I dropped him on the second bound. Finished him with a shot through the neck. Hellofa way to bring in the new season! He's a wall-hanger, 3x4 (21" wide X 15" tall). Stay tuned for recipes.
