Didn’t get out opening day due to being delayed in Iowa for work. Drove 13 hours back to Michigan and got in the deer stand for a late afternoon hunt. Didn’t take long and seen a few Doe coming my way. The giant 8 wasn’t to far behind, He continued fallowing the Lady’s and walked right in between 2 trees giving me a perfect broadside shot at 45 yards. I slowly swing the camera arm around to get him back in the view finder (for a third time) and he InstantlyI looked up at me! BUSTED AGAIN! Anyone who self-films knows the Difficulty, He Hesitated for a split second and that’s all I needed, I made a great shot dropping him in his tracks! So blessed!
