EDITOR’S NOTE: Here’s a story from Mitch Dohman of Chatsworth about his 2008-09 season so far.

This night on stand was a slow one.  I was in my stand for about two hours when the action finally turned on. It was a few minutes until sunset when I spotted a few doe fawns working their way my way from the south. When they were about 15 yards straight in front of me I actually took a picture of them with my cell phone.

It was at about that time when they took notice of something up the trail to the north. When I turned and looked, all I saw was antlers at about 25 yards. He was en route to where these two does stood I instantly grabbed my bow and slid my phone into my pocket and got myself ready to shoot When he made it behind some brush I pulled back my bow and then he stepped out at 15 yards, right to where the does were standing. I let loose of the arrow and watched him bound off crashing down about 30 yards from where he was. It wasn’t until he was bounding down the hill did I notice the drop tine.

This is my biggest buck to date weighing in at 230-235 pounds field dressed. He is a main frame 8-pointer with a 5-inch drop on the right and a 5-inch kicker off of the G2 on the left to give him a total of 10 points.
