As hunters, we hear all of the time about a hit list buck being shot by someone else or a neighbor. For the past several years, this was a fear of mine. I've had targeted bucks simply disappear and always wondered what happened or if they would mysteriously show up a year or two later. Odds have always been that someone did harvest the buck I was after, but never learned about it. November 17th that all changed for me and I joined the ranks of many reading this blog. I received a text that included a photo of the buck I was after and finally felt that sinking feeling illustrated in so many social media memes.
