Terry Clark’s first buck

October 07, 2010

Illinois hunting and fishing

Trophy Tidbits

Scorable Points: 11

Kill Date: November 15, 2008

County: McDonough

Season: Bow

My first year bow hunting had a ladder stand me and my friend set up. He said it was a good spot. Went out that Saturday. Was gonna hunt til work at eleven. My buddy stayed home due to work. Walked in at dark, anticipating a rough, cold morning and a sleepy demeanor. As I sat at day break, I noticed a fork horn, chasin’ a doe in circles as my heart races. I get pulled back on him just light enough to shoot and he spooks off to my left. To my right stands the buck that was chasin’ him off his doe, so I quickly took sights on him and let one fly. He ran loosing a load of blood. Heard some thrashing, stunned. I crawl down shaken and discover the blood spray trail which I walked twenty feet and found my arrow perfect straight in the ground. As I looked up, there he lay. Then my buddy came we dragged and hung the beast.
