Hunter: Ryan McCowen
Points: 9 (4L, 5R)
It was a very slow morning at first. We hadn’t seen any deer at all until 10 a.m. That’s when two does came out of the woods from our right. They slowly walked across the ridge we were hunting on, and then about 2-3 minutes later the buck came out following the trail they were on. Ryan got the gun ready, and when he had a good clear shot, he took it. The buck jumped up in the air and then ran off about 100 yards before hitting the ground. We gave him about an hour before we got down to look for it. We tracked a lot of blood straight to the deer. This buck is Ryan’s second buck ever. He shot an 8-pointer last year.
