My story of the 15 pointer I got on Friday night

10 posts in this topic

I have read stories on here about other peoples bucks now i finally get to right one. I was coming home from college on friday after my class that got done at 3. I had time to think of where i was going to sit with the two hour drive. Something or someone told me i should sit in the stand thats along a ditch and treeline. I got home put on my new mossy oak brush camo gulie suit and got on the stand at 5:30. I saw does right away in the distance feeding and then i saw a fork buck working his way towards me. He came and drank out of the old cattle watering hole in front of me and then went down into the ditch another fork buck came down a deer trail and waded around in the ditch and drank some water then came out of the ditch and slowly wondered away. The other fork buck came back and came out of the ditch and walked to the edge of the field. Something had his attention and got him jumpy. He was looking towards the road so i thought it was a vehicle but i didnt hear one coming. I then heard bucks play fighting or sparring. I thought it was weird. I couldnt see that way so i thought i was hearing things buck i swear thats what it was because i kept hearing it. Then all of a sudden the fork buck took off running. Something got to him. I then sat there for like half-hour with notin unitl i heard something behind me. My heart starting pumping and then i see a fork buck come out of the tress behind me on a trail. After he came i heard something coming behind him. Then a doe and a fawn popped out. They walked around in the bottom of the ditch and drank some water. I was going to leave the stand early to go to a friends party but the three deer just hung out there for awhile. They finally started to wonder down the ditch and then i was getting ready to go. I took a look around me and i sh$t my pants. I looked to my left and there was a nice 8 pointer coming down the ditch. I started to feel the rush. I pulled back as he came behind my tree and relized he wasnt quite big enough to shoot this early in the season. I was pulled back still and i heard more deer coming. The next buck was a another nice 8 pointer. I didnt have time really to think and then another buck came. It was a smaller 8 pointer. I was still pulled back and then i saw him. The last two bucks were coming. I saw the buck i wanted and i put the pins on him. He was about 17 yards away and i let it fly. The arrow hit him through the front shoulders and went right through. This buck and the last one were both shooters for me and i didnt have long to think because they were walking towards the trees and i picked this guy and stuck with him. I felt a relief after i shot. It felt good. One thing i have learned from life mostly hunting if it feels good it usually is good. The buck ran out of the ditch and across the open crp field towards our corn field. I hope u guys like the story. I will write about the tracking of him when i have more time probly later today. Its a long story too. With the help of my dad and a good friend i did find him. I will try to get a picture on here of him. Hes tall but not wide. Dont get your hopes up for a monster but hes a trophy to me. Very unique rack. im skipping chemistry right now o right this lol hunting is more important anyways right. i will right more later cya

gforce,

I can't wait to hear "the rest of the story"!!!!!! It sounds real exciting and no matter how big it is it will always be a trophy to you and that's all it matter.

Yeah, skip more classes and write up the story!! Just kidding, there is plenty of time to write it up later. Us old farts will just have to wait.

Good job and I bet your arm muscles were singing by the time you got to shoot....sounds like you had the bow pulled back awhile. Another thing that struck me is the fantastic hunt you had. My biggest fear is to shoot a monster buck without a good hunt to it.

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Why don't you take the free Dewalt I offered you....no more worries about not enough power...lol :-)

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
