Default First Buck with a Bow

Last night I was able to connect on this beaut for my first bow kill. With about 10 minutes of light left he walked out of a creek bottom about 20-25 yards from my stand. When I drew he turned and looked at me before I released. Special moment. Stuck him through the heart and he only made it about 35 yards before calling it quits.
