Hunter: Shawna Myers
Points: 10 (5L, 5R)
I hunted opening day from 1:45 PM until dark and didn't see what I was looking for. Since there would be the right wind Sunday, I decided to hunt again but waited until 3:00 PM and had my husband take me to the stand in our electric buggy. Right before dark, one of the bucks I was hunting showed up. He circled me but I was in a Sad Daddy hunting blind and he never winded me. He couldn't resist the Buck Muscle 30 yards in front of me. When he settled in, I let him have it with my new Ravin! It's this time of year and experiences like this that remind me why my husband and I work year round for these opportunities. My husband rough scored my buck at 147 4/8". Harvesting a mature buck is great, but experiences like this always pulls your family and true friends together and we can't wait to see what the next several months unveil! Good luck to everyone and thank you GON for such a great platform for GA deer hunters!
