Unit 24A, Arizona

I glassed this deer up at over 900 yards with my Nikon Monarch 12X56 Binoculars. He was moving quickly and we had a visual on him for about thirty seconds. Then he went into a draw at about 850 yards and didn’t come out. The draw he went into was deep and brushy and even at 200 yards it was very difficult to see him bedded down. But the wind was in my nose and there was enough brush to keep me hidden so I felt like getting in close would be a good idea.
The closer I got to the draw I turned the Magnification down on my Burris Scope mounted on my Tikka 308 Cal Rifle. Finally into the draw. I moved slowly through the brush until I was in shoulder height brush but at the same time had full view of the draw. I looked around for about a minute when I felt the breeze hit the back of my neck. I was certain with the wind change he would smell me and possibly move so I clicked off my safe put the rifle to my shoulder and waited. 10 to 15 Seconds later he stood up about forty yards away and started moving up the draw. At 50 yards I had a clear shot and took it.

I would like to thank Jacob Acton, Danny Day and Justin Taylor For their help with this hunt.
