  • My first buck - 2016

    It was an eventful day about two years ago today. It was Nov. 8, and we had a long day, followed by a sleepless night. I fell asleep at midnight, and got back up at 2 am. Never the less, we decided to hunt that afternoon. We have a deer stand in the woods about 100 yards from a bordering property. Every year there is a bumper crop of acorns there, so we called it acorn hill. It was about 3 pm when me and my dad got into the stand. For the next twenty minutes, all w could hear was ATV's and people yelling on the bordering property. Well, you can't hunt with all that noise, so we went over to see who it was. When we got there, one of the men present was belligerent and downright mean, cussing like a sailor. The other guy, stood and shook his head. We walked off and debated about calling it quits. There was one more stand to go to. We went, and set up in about 15 minutes. As soon as we finished setting up, we heard foot steps from behind us. I had almost no time to react. I just saw antlers, and large body mass and decided to take this deer. He came in and stopped momentarily. I aimed for his lung. I shot, and the arrow sailed into his lung, and out the heart. (quartering away), just the way I planned it. I walked up to him after a quick tracking job, and there he was. My first buck. Under scrutiny, you can see an acorn formation on his rack. Although quick, this was my favorite deer hunt, and one I won't forget.

        I like guns, but I hate the noise. Every animal I have taken has been with a bow, or crossbow.

          Just turned fourteen. I got my first deer with a bow on my twelfth birthday. I have been hunting turkeys with a crossbow since I was nine.
