Hunt Story

Weather channels were calling for lots of rain for opening weekend so I decided I probably wouldn’t hunt. After watching my little girl cheer, the light rain stopped and the weather stated no rain till after 9:00 pm. Temperature was lower due to a front and I decided to go hunt. That afternoon about an hour and a half before dark a total of five bucks came out. They were spaced a few minutes from each other. The fifth buck walked out from behind a tree and it was the buck I was after. He was about 15 yards away. A small racked buck walked up to him to lock horns. That was my time to draw back. The big buck was slightly turning and about to lock up; I release the arrow and it hit the spot I was aiming for. The buck stumbled sideways and ran off with my arrow in him. I called someone with a dog and the dog was able to take us to where very close to where the deer was. We weren’t sure if we were pushing the deer or not so we decided to back out and give the deer more time. Went back the next day and recovered the deer quickly.
