    Default Arrowed my trail cam buck from yesterday

    Well,I arrowed the brute this morning that I posted about yesterday on here in another thread.Here is the story.I got to my stand at about 0515 hrs.While on the way in,and just shy of my stand location I jumped an unknown deer that spooked off,but I could hear hanging around at about 80 to 100 yards out.I snuck into my stand quietly enough that the deer did not go any further.Once I got settled in,and first light came,I was able to see that the deer was a doe.This deer ended up feeding under my stand and eventually made its way down the ridge.Things were quiet until 0720 when I heard a twig snap behind me.As I turned around I could see that the source of the noise was a deer(about 40 yards out) walking towards my stand.As I looked closely at the deer I could see that it was the buck that I captured on my trail camera yesterday.I then watched the buck go right to a mock scrape that I had made,where it stopped and freshened it.The deer was now 35 yards out and I had no shot.After hitting the mock scrape, the buck then angled towards my stand where it stopped at 20 yards and made another scrape.This buck was into this scrape like a madman;thrashing the overhead branch and chewing on it for about 25 seconds or so while occasionaly stopping to paw the ground.Once the buck was done,it took a couple of steps and stopped in a perfect clearing.This is when things got interesting for me.As I began drawing back my bow,I got to about half way,when the arrow popped off the string!The arrow then began to fall to the ground,and as it did I kicked it in mid air to keep it from striking my stand.The arrow hit one branch on the way down and stuck in the ground.The buck noticed this and stared in the direction of the arrow for several seconds,trying to figure out what the noise was.Then, to my suprise it turned and went back to the scrape it had just made.That gave me the opportunity to pull another arrow from my quiver and get it nocked...correctly this time.I had a perfectly clear 20 yard shot at this time so I drew back my bow,put the pin on the sweet spot and let it rip.The shot was perfect,tight behind the left shoulder.The arrow passed through the buck and buried in the dirt on the exit side.The deer ran about 80 yards,stopped to look around and tipped over.I got down and followed the blood trail anyway just to see how it was.It was a low exit so the trail was great.I shot the buck with my '06 68 lb.29" Pearson Steath.I used a CX Maxima hunter arrow guided by my own hand cut feathers and tipped with a 100 grain standard Slick trick.Total arrow weight is 366 grains flying at 298 fps.My bow was equipped with a TR Drop Zone Rest and a Viper Predator sight.The deer is a good sized 8 pt. that dressed out at 176 lbs.It appeared to me to be bigger and older in the trail camera photo taken the day before.Still a nice buck though!

    Beautiful Buck in my book, good work. Fancy trick with the kicking of the arrow, but it worked.

    Outstanding job! That was a great shot you put on him. Congrats!
    That look on my face is not concern, its shock at your utter stupidity!

    Nice buck & nice shooting. Curious as to why you didn't field dress it in the woods to lighten the drag out?
