I started my day early on November 11, 2010, climbing up a white oak right at day light, overlooking a thick covered creek bottom with older growth hardwoods to my back. The wind was perfect coming from my left, to my right-left away from the bottom area. Didn't see anything for an hour and a half but a few squirrels. Then out of the corner of my eye to my left I saw some movement, seeing the white tips of some antlers as a buck was feeding on acorns.
I turned my body to get a better position and looked at the deer through the scope of my T/C Omega and saw there was an 8 point about 60 yards off. I watched it for what seemed like minutes waiting, for the buck to turn and give me a good shot through the brush.
I pulled the trigger when he stepped right, giving me a shot between two trees as it quartered away from me. I listened as he ran off through the brush for only a few seconds. He only ran about 70 yards and expired.
That was my second deer for the year with the Omega,
