Take the Varmint gun & see the big buck

I knew it would happen when I picked up the 223 to go to the woods this afternoon. All season I've been looking for the big 10 point that I saw 2 days before the season opened. Since then I've been hard at it, and armed with the 270 or the 260. Finally I gave up and took a nice 8 point (in this county you can only kill one basket rack buck and he has to meet minimum rack measurement). So today, knowing that I wasn't going to shoot a buck and hoping that the live coyotes would come to the dead one (aka 'bait') that I had dumped in the field, I took the 223. As I did so I did think to myself, with a smile, that I'd probably see that big buck if I had the little rifle. Well, as sure as death and taxes, here he came - walking slowly within about 80 yards of me around 5 pm. And then, about 30 minutes later he came back from my right and walked 40 yards in front of me. Nice buck. Real young. Wait till next year.
