Archery Season - Part 2: He Shoots, He Scores

Today at 3:33 PM my archery season came to a screeching halt when I arrowed a really nice 8 point buck.

This is the biggest deer I have ever harvested and the special kicker is that I took it with my bow.


















I spotted the deer coming across a picked soybean field at about 300 yards out. The deer came in and presented me with a 20 yard broadside shot. The gory details are that I got a lung shot and which left a good trail, easy to follow. The deer went about 150 yards before piling up in some brush.

Hunting the rut ... nothing could be better! I saw 4 shooter bucks on Thursday afternoon and I knew the deer where in the area I'm just thankful that I had the opportunity to take a deer of this caliber! Praise the Lord!


I Remain,

Pastor Steve

Good on ye, dude. I need to get the time to get out. Dwight told me that there were 6 deer under the tree I've been using for a stand. I guess I need to get out to shot them though.

P.S. nice rack. they won't be making fun of you now. Well, at least about the tiny deer that you shoot. I am really happy for you.

Big Bro says I bet that will taste a lot better then that sapling you shot last time. Congrats, great buck! I'm envious.

Congratulations, Steve!
Persistence pays off.
That's the kind of buck that keeps us hunters going afield day after day, season after season.
Savor your great reward, Nay: bask in your success!

I think it is my duty, as a friend and someone who considers it my personal responsibility to keep you from getting to big for your britches to say the following,




Pooor Bambi.

That a way Pastor. Now that you have had your fun, it is time to confess. Who really shot that deer?
