My name is Drew Landry and I am 14 years old. This is the story about my incredible bow hunt. I got my first Mathews mission craze bow when I was 11. I have killed many deer since then. My dad and I hunt on a piece of property located in Bordelonville, Louisiana. We decided to go put up a stand in the same spot that I killed my first deer out of. We got there and saw lots of deer signs. I found some big buck poo, and saw a honey locust tree dropping some beans. I went back to the camp, and went dove hunting. After I shot a few doves, I left the field early and headed back to the camp because I could not wait to go hunt this spot. I got to the lock on, and before I knew it two spikes and a doe came in. The doe did not come in range so I got pretty upset, but I still had hope there was more. A doe came in and started feeding on a honey locust tree behind me. I drew back and let the arrow go, and missed her. At this point I was very frustrated with myself, knowing that you don’t always have ample opportunities when bowhunting. Not even 30 minutes later, I see the biggest buck I have ever seen in my life. He was feeding on briars about 40 yards away. He started to leave, then all of a sudden he started walking straight towards me. He was just a tank. He started feeding, and got broadside. I was taking deep breathes so I didn’t fall off my stand from shaking so much. I drew back and shot him in the spine. He dropped to ground and started crawling away, and I got another arrow. I shot at it again as it was crawling away, and missed it. I had one more arrow in my quiver, and I shot my last arrow in the buck’s shoulder. It stopped only 30 yards away and was just laying there, and could not move his back legs. I called my dad immediately and told him what I just did. He made his way over thinking that I just shot a tiny buck. He came to my stand, and I told him it was bedded down and was about to die. It had been 25 minutes since I shot him. I got down from my stand and found the arrow that I missed the doe on earlier. My dad and I found him alive and I finished him off with an arrow. He died not even 10 seconds later. My dad said this is a bigger buck than anything he has ever killed. We got the four wheeler to the deer. My dad and I could barely put the tank on it. We hoped he wouldn’t fall off cause we had already used all our energy to load it. We made it to the truck and loaded him up. It was just sinking in on how I just killed probably the biggest deer I will ever kill.
