Beautiful night with a light breeze and 4 squirrels bugging the crap out of me dropping acorn on my head. So good for a quiet night . Well it’s starting to be prime time now and all of a sudden I seen a 6 point coming cross an open bean field right towards me and didn’t stop till he was 5 yards away and then looked right up at me . This is where the fun begins when I hear some brush in the woods and here come the 8 point out on the right side of the fence row , man how am I going to draw back on him without the 6 point busting me . Well , here goes nothing , so I drew back and all of sudden the 8 point sees the 6 point, now the 8 jumps on the other side of the fence row. This just keeps getting better by the minute. I have to flip my bow to opposite side of the tree . Finally I get a 35 yard shot. This is why I love bow hunting.
