I’ve been hunting as much as possible this season which is not always easy with a three year old and 4 month old! (Thank you husband, mother in law and father in law!) A lot of my hunting has been getting done in our backyard instead of out on the hunting property. The last 3 hunts I hadn’t even seen a deer. Last night at 5:15 all of a sudden there’s a deer at my crabapple tree. I picked up my crossbow and waited for him to give me the perfect shot. Double lunged and he didn’t even make it 40 yards! My first 8 point and he was right in our little 5 acres!
