After 14 hunts and not seeing anything close enough to shoot with my Hoyt Maxxis 31, I wasn’t so eager to hunt on November 5, 2010!

But, as much as I love the hobby and the outdoors, I got up and went climb my tree climber at 6:35am. I crossed my arms and leaned my head back against the tree because I completely lost all the confidence I had! Then shortly after, at 6:50 am, a 3 pointer walked within 10 yards away from my tree stand. Not knowing what he was, I checked my sights to make sure it was enough daylight and which it was! So I let the 3 pointer walk and said to myself, “Heck, stop shacking, he isn’t a shooter, but that’s a good sign!” Deer were moving!

No sooner he got out of my sight, I heard a noise coming from my back side, so I looked and seen this, “At the time, OK rack!” Immediately, I turned my head and told myself not to shack and calm down! So when I seen him through the corner of my eye, broad-sided, with his head down, I stood up and drew back my bow with my anchor points all lining up, and squeezed my release!

Chu pap! Running/ stumbling almost 50 yards, I saw this nice buck drop! That’s when I believe I died for a minute with my heart still racing!

After I called my dad up ecstatically, thinking I killed a 9/10 pointer! We ranged off the 13 yard shot and found blood that the Blood Runner broad head left behind! Then when my dad and I walked up to this buck, he noticed it before me, he said, “bruh, look what you got!” And when I seen that, my heart just dropped more! Not even caring about having to drag him out about 3/4 way of a mile to the truck….


I am one grateful man hunter!

Green score 193 5/8ths weighing in at 250 pounds!
