Default 20 yard shot to wrap up my season. Time to play Santa now :)

Great 5 days of hunting. Time was running out and I started to think Iíve let my shooter walk.

Iíve been watching this buck for a few months and decided to take him last night.

20 yard shot. Heís not a giant but heís a keeper for me.

He was mostly nocturnal for the last 30 days or so, it was a surprise to see him late afternoon. My wife was with me and she kept telling ďhoney, I hope you get oneĒ. The pressure !! anyway
I decided to take the shot and wrap up my season.

Itís my busy season so itís time to play Santa for everyone.

Enjoy the pics !!



I just made the shot and my game cam captured him taking off.


Iím pretty happy !!

I shot my buck last year with my bow on opening weekend of gun season. Sure did have a lot of work to do that I couldn't put off because I had to hunt

How the rest of the story goes.. I arrowed this buck quartered away from me. Was not a complete pass through which worried me. Solid lung shot but not all the way through.

As I watch my arrow bounce up and down it Brock off. As Iím tracking this buck I found him piled up with an exit wound.. I looked up and down and could find the other end of the arrow.

I was thinking maybe it was still in the body, I carefully dug around in there , nothing!!

Had to call on the bloodhound !!

Sheís a good girl with a heck of a nose, what do you know, she found it. Broad head exit was the left side. Checked my game cam, what do you know it was sticking out in the picture.

This buck must have reached over and pulled it out, it was laying on the opposite side against a tree line he was on.

What do ya know, she found it !!!
