Frosty mornings have always been my favorite and just so happens to be what I shot this stud in. Day before opening day of gun and I decided it was time to drag a tarsal gland out to my stand with a mock scrape right below the gland. I place everything about 20 yards from my stand climbed in my stand and decided to sit back and wait. Well after a hour I started shivering and decided to take my go pro off my head and put my warm hat on. As I sat wondering why I put myself through these elements of nature and if I was wanting to just call it I imagined what if….what if I hit this doe bleat and its like I see on TV all the time… what if… so I reach in my pocket hit my bleat and literally as the second bleat is released I hear something running towards me but I can’t see through the pine tree thicket in front of me. I click my bow off safety just incase but I swear it sounded like 2 squirrels chasing eachother. As I look around the section of maple tree in front of me I seen my dream deer I been after for so long! He heads right to my tarsal gland and as he reaches the last shot opening I decided it had to be a walking shot. I’ve had bad experiences trying to stop big mature deer in the past with simple bleats that scare them off. I pull the trigger and watch my arrow sink into his front shoulder and him leap off!! Just seconds after my shot I heard all the thrashing around and I knew it was perfect! Perfect shot perfect pass through perfect hunt! This is what I been teaching my children in hopes to pass on my traditions. Grim reaper broadheads have always been my choice with archery and that will never change!! Tagged out in 2020 day before gun with 2 beautiful bucks and couldn’t be happier! God knows I love the outdoors!
