His confidence didn't last long, though. His first two days of hunting the area passed with no sighting of the big buck. On Dec.14, his third day of hunting the area, and the final day of the season, Clark ventured to the creek bottom for one last sit. He laced the area with scent and did some rattling and grunting once he got to the stand. After getting no response, he deemed the spot a bust and decided that it was time to move on. "I lowered my gun to the ground," he told the Clarion-Ledger. "When I stood up to turn around, I saw a main beam. I said, 'Oh, my goodness.'"
