On a cold Christmas afternoon 2023, the Lord blessed me with the harvest of a buck we call Knight Rider. I have hunted him for 3 years, seen him numerous times, and actually missed him with my bow in the 2020 season. This old buck had put the slip on me many times and always was wise enough to stay out of archery range. Finally, I was fortunate to close the book on my largest whitetail on Christmas. I am so thankful for my wife and mom for helping me track and drag this buck out of a deep bottom in 20-degree temperatures. This experience will provide a memory of a lifetime.
