It’s been 11 yrs since I have filled a buck tag. I have been a little picky and let quite a few walk, shot and missed one of the widest bucks I have ever saw with my bow 6 years ago and shot and was not able to recover a big 8 2 years ago. My goal has been to shoot a big buck with my bow for a long time. Last year we purchased 40 acres and my wife harvested her first deer ever and with a bow. The day before gun I saw all 3 of my shooter bucks but couldn’t close the deal. Never saw them again after gun opener. This year I started off with no bucks in camera during summer but knew once October got here I would have a few pop in seeing as how I have a doe factory. I took my wife out the first part of the season and then I started middle of October. Like last year I saw a nice buck yesterday cross my field while I was in for a quick snack. I was thinking here we go again. I went to bed last night with my 2020 buck tag tucked away and ready for doe patrol. This morning I sat next to my barn and watched both my fields for cruising bucks or does. I saw 9 total but nothing I wanted to shoot. At 1230 I headed to my stand hopeful of seeing a buck cruise by but ready to take a doe. At 430 a buck I got to see yesterday crossing my beans behind me came through alone. 60 yd shot 25 yd recovery. Was all shook up even though it was with a gun. So blessed and thankful just to be able to enjoy Gods creations. Sorry for the long post but like I said it’s been 12 years. Lol.
