Got out to the woods late but decided to sit anyway. Was in the tree for about 20 minutes and he came in. Had a 20 yard shot between 2 trees and he only ran 40 yards and fell right in front of me. Biggest buck I have shot with my bow. The kids loved the deer. Maybe they are future hunters. That’s what it’s about family and the great outdoors.

All three bucks were taken within 11 minutes! I shot the 9 point and approx3 minutes later my niece shot her small 8pt from a blind at the other end of the woods, while sitting in my blind just waiting for my 9 pt to bleed out. The 7 point stepped out of the trees and into the open area presenting himself broadside! So I pulled up and dumped him as he was bigger bodied yet! Yes they are only 2.5 yr old bucks. I feel rather blessed as I was able to make opening day of FireArm Deer Season after breaking my back over three years ago! They are the first deer I have shot in 5 yrs! The buck my niece got was her second deer in her short career!!

Took my personal best buck on the afternoon of the 15th as he pushed a group of does past my stand. It is amazing how many nice bucks Michigan is capable of producing when hunters pass them up as 1 1/2 year olds. I passed up many bucks over the last four years, waiting for a buck larger than I had previously taken. It was worth the wait!

I was hunting Thursday evening it was just getting dusk.. My friends nephew set me a text and said how much longer you want to stay out. I said we can go up anytime I’m not seeing anything anyhow
. So we walked up to my friends building .put are guns on the case . my friend was on his way out to fill up his wood stove . I said hey I got to use your restroom walk back out to see if my friend needed a hand. looked out the door and seen two deer running across the field I realize one was a buck. run back inside grab my thirty-ought-six tried to shoot free standing, shaking too bad I leaned against the door frame of the building, put the crosshairs on the buck pull the trigger and shot the buck through the heart at 150 to 175 yards away… my friend thought I was messing with him, I said no I’m not , I just shot a buck , we walked out there we found him laying about 10 yards from where I shot him it was a great day after all. He definitely going on my wall

Headed back to the stand around 3:00. p.m I sprayed some doe estrus out got in my stand just get settled in and he comes walking through the corn field. I had then seen the black on his back and never seen anything like it so I took him with 30.06. He’s not the biggest buck I’ve taken but in my eyes the difference in his hide made him a trophy to me. I will be getting a shoulder mount and tanning the rest of the hide.
