Hunter: Richard Griggs
Points: 9 (5L, 4R)
I had been running trail cameras on three different properties, this buck was showing up on one of them on a fairly consistent basis. I got in a ground blind I had set up a couple weeks earlier around 3:30. He showed up around 7:30. There was a small buck with him standing in front of him. He finally moved and gave me a clear shot. After the shot, I found the bolt stuck in a log and covered in blood. My son-in-law met me to help track and hopefully get the deer out. We lost the blood trail and while trying to pick it up jumped the buck. It began to pour the rain. We decided to back out and come back in the morning. We found the deer about 75 yards from where we had jumped it.
