Trophy Species: Whitetail
Story: I had been out hunting earlier in the day without any luck and I went inside for a break. I decided to head back out to give it one more try before I lost daylight. I was only out in the woods for 20 minutes when this big buck comes trotting down the hill right toward me. He passed behind a tree as I came to full draw. And then he paused quartering away about 15 yards from me. I took my shot and he fell about 50 yards away. I could see him fall from where I was standing. It is my first ever with a traditional bow!
