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.
