I told him that was fine but that I would be tied up at my daughters high school volleyball game and watching the grandson. He calls and tells me he is there to hunt around 4:45. I said ok but keep in mind that I am not available to help. At 5:15 he send me a trail cam pic of a really nice buck and I told him “ that’s a stud”. At 5:45 he texts me and says I just shot him!! Meanwhile I’m holding my grandson rooting on my daughters team. He calls me with his voice shaking as he is trying to whisper and says I got him Dad. 30 yds and I buried it in his shoulder. My immediate response was get out quietly and don’t even go look for blood. So now I can’t even concentrate on the game. I’m sweating my butt off in a hot gym holding the baby and couldn’t take it. Lol I got up and went outside the gym and called him and proceeded to ask all the questions. “ did it pass through” how did he react” “did you see him go down”. All he said was the arrow didn’t pass through but thought he heard him crash. I called my other son and told him ( who’s baby I had) and he said I’ll go help. Well guess who ended up going out to help. Ol’ dad did. Didn’t take long as the buck didn’t go 40 yds and was 10 yds from where the had last blood. Heart shot and both lungs. My other son also shot his first bow buck this year and was still in velvet. Been a good start to 2021 so far.

    That was my other son. Lol He’s 24 and shot a basket rack 8 in velvet. Had this same deer come out an hour earlier in velvet but no shot at him. I asked y he didn’t wait for this buck and he said because he would never see him again. I think he regrets it a little bit now.
