I had to have a north wind to hunt the main spot I had pics of this deer. Monday afternoon the wind was in my favor. Bad news is that it rained until about 6 pm. At 6, 3 racoons came down the trail, one of them stood up and looked to his right. Not a minute later, this 10 point and a smaller 8 point and 4 point walked out. It took me a minute to gain composure pulled back and made a pretty good shot considering my nerves going crazy. Due to the rain, as soon as I heard the deer crash, i only waited 5 minutes to go retrieve him while I still had a little light. Ive passed plenty of deer that would have been a great bow buck but i have tried to stick to my plan of shooting atleast 3 year old deer on my 40 acre place. it was a rush to say the least, but with a bow any deer in close enough to shoot is a success.
