My son had shot "my" buck at the end of the 2008 season after I had seen it opening day of the Virginia Muzzleloading season.
In 2009 my son had set out a trail camera in the same area and we had pictures of a nice buck with at least 10 points in several of the pictures. Come opening day, my son was in his treestand looking for that buck, but it was not to be. Right at sunrise the big buck came into the field from my right at about 30 yards. I sent a 295 gr powerbelt on its way but could not tell what had happened as the fog set in heavily and the smoke was still blurring my vision.
I looked for blood where I thought the deer had been standing and found none. The fog got thicker and I had no option but to sit and wait, hoping for the fog to lift. Three hours later my son came up to where my ground blind was and we looked again. This time we found the blood trail and the buck only about 40 yards away.
I guess that what goes around comes around.
