This story goes back to the night of opening day of bow. My dad who is 74 years old was going to get ready to hunting the next morning. I received a text from my mother in-law that he was in the hospital and found out that he ended having triple bypass surgery. So he couldn’t go out hunting this year. I know this buck isn’t a monster. But I wanted to get one for him. I called him like a minute after I shot him cause the buck dropped 30 yards away. He was so, so excited. This is for you dad, David
