Dead eye Dad took out this doe with a shot that will make us all forget about his former arrow slinging adventure. Although this deer was taken with a muzzle loader, it's not always easy to put a bullet EXACTLY where you want.
Krack Boy Outdoors does not want to be known as a bunch of cold hearted killers, nor do we want to be too descriptive or gory when it comes to stories or pictures. But on this occasion I want you to see a picture of this deers heart. It must have taken a very direct hit, I think we can assure you that this animal did not suffer. (See Photo Below)
Another part of this story has to do with the "clean up". I'm talking about field dressing and gut piles. Not every day in Krackville is a day in paradise, typically we all get along very well. Unless a couple of thoughtless guys leave a big ole nasty stinky gut pile 15 yards from a tree stand that Old Bro Krack is intending on hunting the next day. All is well now, but it did bring up some interesting conversation about gut piles. PLEASE COMMENT and let us know how you think gut piles affect deer behavior.

My first wall hanger came to me this year on opening day of the Michigan gun season. It always looks impressive when you see someone holding up a nice set of antlers, and it is usually assumed that the guy in the picture did most of the work. However in this hunt there should be a few others standing by my side. My own Father, my Father in-law, brother in-law, and a gracious land owner all played a part in this story.
Weapon – Mossberg 20 ga. Pump
Shot Distance -20-30 yards (first shot, I'll not mention the others)
Dressed Weights -170 lbs
Shot Placement – GUT (yes it says gut, and yes it also says 20 yards, and yes I did win Krak Shot this year---Buck Fever)
Sex - Male
Points – 8
16" inside spread

It has been quite the dry spell for dad, but after putting in his fair share of hours in the treestand, he connected with this handsome 4point.
Dad was coming off from a hunt the day before that produced nothing but feelings of anger. Anger that was induced by meeting up with a young kid on his way to the treestand. The kid told dad he walks around in our hunting area all the time. He said he really enjoys the trails the we mowed and even told dad where he usually jumps the deer out of. Dad took care of the situation in a polite manner and sat for the remainder of the night and not surprisingly seen nothing.
Monday night, Nov. 7, was a different story. There were no kids to be seen on his way down to the lower stand. Instead, this nice 4 point buck came in and gave him a 32 yard shot. Miss judging the distance of the deer resulted in a spine shot, but three broken arrows later the deal was sealed.
Congratulations dad on the nice buck.
Upon special request by Jim V. here are the stats:
