Kill Date: Nov. 14, 2008

County: Marion

Season: Bow

EDITOR’S NOTE: Here in the words of bowhunter Les Robertson is the story of his hunt for a Marion County 7-point buck.

I was hunting a great funnel along a creek, when about 2:30 p.m. this nice buck come strolling by. I was able to deliver a lethal double lung hit and watched him fall within 50 yards. 

I texted my friend the good news and I got the usually reply “You lucky B***tard!”  It was early so I was going to wait until sundown. 

At 4:30, I couldn’t stand it any longer. I wanted to get my hands on him and take some good in the field photos, I was alone when I took this picture. I was able to prop the buck’s head up and make a great photo. 

After field dressing and photos, I waited for sundown. I soon heard the famaliar noise of deer running, I turned around to see a Booner class 10-pointer chasing a doe! 

Had I passed on my buck and stayed in the same tree, the Booner would had offered a 30-yard shot. Oh well, maybe this year!
