At that moment, the heavy-racked buck stepped out of the shadows and began walking toward one of Brown's open shooting lanes. Without hesitation, he positioned his rifle on the stand's shooting arm, but a slight squeak suddenly alarmed the buck. At 80 yards, the wary whitetail turned and started walking back up the hill. Brown could not believe what had just happened and it looked like the buck was going to survive another year. There was one last opening ahead of the giant, which would give Brown the chance he needed to close the deal. At the crack of his rifle, the wide-racked 14-pointer dropped to the ground and ended a five-year pursuit. Brown's amazing buck had over a 24-inch inside spread and a total of four separate drop tines. Way to hang in there Frank and make something happen! Congratulations on a phenomenal buck.
