This last weekend I had still not filled my buck tag, so a buddy of mine put me on some private land where I was sure to get me a big buck since I saw none on public land on the opener,(only saw two points). Anyways I will try to make this long story short. The only other people hunting the land was a guy and his two sons, (and my wife of course), This guy also knew I was the only other person hunting this area. We had ran into each other several times because every time we jumped a two point they were quick to shoot right next to us to try and get them. We also had friendly conversation about what we had seen and what not. Well on saturday afternoon my wife and I jumped a nice 4 point and I hit him. I hit him good but there was not a spec of blood anywhere!! We searched for three hours for this deer!! Nothing!!! On sunday afternoon I run into this hunter and his sons again, but this time they are dragging a spike out right close to where I hit this 4 point. We talked about his hunt that day and weekend basically what he had seen and then I told him I hit a 4 point yesterday and couldnt find him anywhere, he asked where I saw him and I pointed right to the spot and he just changed the subject but I thought nothing of it. He then said they were done and were leaving so he said and I quote "GOOD LUCK". I said thanks and my wife and I proceeded. We did a quick push and decided to go down and get some lunch. When we got to the bottom we saw the guy in his tahoe. He was turning around when he saw us in my truck. We slowed down and looked at the deer he had on his little hitch rack, and it was MY 4 POINT!!!! For sure I knew it was mine! We stopped the truck and made it obvious we wanted to talk to him about the MY DEER. He then just sped off!!! I was furious! We then went and talked to the land owner to thank him for the hunt and I immediately asked him "what was the deal with that guy having that 4 point?" The land owner said "the guy found him dead this moring, gutted him and took him! I cannot believe that someone knowing we were the only ones hunting this property and knowing I still hadnt found my 4 point would just gut a dead deer and take him and run off with something he wasnt even good enough to get with his gun???? Am I wrong about this??? Its driving me nuts!!! It just keeps flashing through my head the moment we saw the deer on the back of his tahoe, this wasnt any four point, this was my first 4 point after 12 years of hunting deer! He wasnt a monster or anything but he was my best and I worked hard for him and I just think the guy could've had the common courtesy to tell me he found my deer!! This is gonna haunt me all year!!! Maybe even forever! What would you have done? By the way the freezer is still filling up but not with a 4 point!
