In the winter of 2005 I purchased a 30 acre parcel, mostly hardwoods, from a local farmer. I immediately planted two food plots. I planted a narrow strip of “Imperial Whitetail Clover” along the north edge of the woods and a plot of “Alfa Rack Plus” at the west end.
I had the property logged this past winter and last spring I cleared some openings in the woods and prepared the ground for planting. In September I planted two small food plots of “Pure Attraction” in those openings. One November morning at about 9:30 am I looked over my left shoulder and there he was. The giant 8 point. After several tense minutes I was able to release the arrow and it buried deep in his chest. And after several tense hours of waiting and searching I found him and I dropped to my knees and thanked God. The giant eight point green scored 150 2/8 inches and dressed out at 175 pounds. We guessed the deer to be between 6 ˝ and 7 ˝ years old. He was truly the buck of a lifetime.
