Hunt Story

I was hunting a trail with fresh rubs. I put a trail cam on it a few days earlier and got a video of the buck using the trail pretty frequently during daylight hours. I set up my stand the evening before about 20 yards off the trail and hunted the next morning. Five does showed up slipping down that trail at around 8 a.m. The buck came from the opposite direction of the does with his head down grunting about 15 minutes later. He stopped about 12 yards away slightly quartering to me. The shot was slightly high going in and came out behind the last rib on the backside. The buck ran 30 yards and stopped and then darted out of sight. The arrow was covered with watery blood, so I gave him plenty of time and recovered him less than a 100 yards from the shot.
