After spending a few hours in a blind i went over the ridge to the cotton field hoping to see some hogs. Saw two does and a fawn about 150 yards away and put a stalk on them. Came to the head of the gully and saw this big doe standing in the cotton field. Got a rest on a fence post and fired. Saw one doe and the fawn take off. Went into the cotton field and found the big doe dead in her tracks.

Saw this buck a couple times in person and several times on game camera. He had short very heavy "spikes". Decided to cull him if given the chance.
