I have been hunting most of my adult life and I always wanted my first buck to be something special. The last 6 years I have hunted hard and passed several bucks, I always dreamed of a tall tined buck with mass and character and I held out. November 5th I pulled into our property and there was a buck standing on the edge of the field and I was like that’s the buck! I saw nothing that morning and headed to a different stand for the evening. It was about 5:30 and I hadn’t seen a deer. I looked up and my buck was trotting along the river, he cut in 15 yards in front of my stand and I let the arrow fly! I have never had a flood of so many emotions. Incredibly blessed to harvest this guy!
