watched him chase a doe for about 10-20 minutes and when she went over the hill i figured all was lost, within a few minutes she went running right by me in my stand and i knew he was coming. got ready and within a few seconds he was coming toward me, he stopped @35 yards from my stand and i shot.
took me 27 years of bow hunting to finally shoot a decent buck with my bow, all of the other ones have been little bucks or does. this one is going to find a place on my wall so i can remember this day every time i look at him.
Taking ANY deer with a bow deserves some respect, especially if its a deer like that. They dont get that big by being stupid, and getting close to a deer like that is not an easy thing to do. Very nice buck.
Congrats on the success. I spent a lot of time in the woods this year, never even saw a legal buck while on stand during archery season. Season ended sat for archery, gun season starts the monday after thanksgiving.
