I was lucky enough to get drawn for a tag for Lone Star Lakes State Park over by Suffolk. It was a management hunt and as hunter's choice I could use shotgun, muzzleloader or archery eqpt. I opted for a slug gun. The park staff asked us not to be selective but to take what we saw. So that is just what I did.
It wasn't the biggest buck in the woods but a decent sized spike. He was cleanly shot and was in really good shape (dressed at 92 lbs) and should eat well. I was very happy to get him. Now if I can get a nice plump doe, Me and Mama are set for the year.
