Default Rattled him up

We have rattled up several bucks in the last few weeks in Concho county. I shot this buck inside of 10 yards with my bow while on the ground. We took lots of does off of our ranch last year and it has made a huge impact on our rut activity. Iím ready to go back!Name:  IMG_5349.jpg

Now that is doing something. Usually when they come to rattling they are all alert and looking everywhere for the fight. That is a very nice buck to take with bow and arrow. Congratulations on getting it done.

Is that an open wound on the back of his neck? Looks like his trash rubbed the hair off and was gouging him?

Pretty cool buck.

Give us the story on how you were able to draw and get a shot off with your bow. All the bucks I’ve killed from rattling have had to be head on neck shots in thick brush.

I saw this buck the earlier out of a bow blind the same morning and couldnít get a shot at him. I met my brother around 9:00am and we snuck in close to some thick brush where I thought he may be bedding. Immediately we rattled up a nice 8 that got in down wind of us. On the second sequence I could see the buck making his way through the brush to get down wind of us. In the meantime another big 8 ran in within 10 or so yds. I tried to swing around on him and he ran off when I moved. When I looked back the buck I shot was @ 10 yds in some very thick brush starring right at me. My brother gave him a soft grunt and when he lowered his head to come out I drew back. When he stepped out I smoked him and he dropped. We jumped around like a bunch of kids after the shot. We are going back this weekend with a professional camera and a go-pro.
