With 5 minutes of shooting light left, this buck sniffed up a hot doe in the field behind me and headed my way. When he was 76 yards out and still moving fast, I realized it was going to happen. He dropped out of sight at 45 yards, then came into view at 23. He stopped, then took a step just as I released. I watched that green #nockturnal zip through the air in the low light and hit a little farther back than I would have liked. Found the broken arrow thanks to that bright green glowing nock, and lots of blood where he ran into the trees, then decided to back out and leave him for the night since the hit was not ideal. The #ragebroadhead did its work and the next morning we followed an ample blood trail less than 100 yards. Grateful for the harvest of my first #archery #10point #whitetail #buck.

If you know me at all you know I believe there's nothing more elegant than a a perfect arrow. Speed doesn't matter, cutting diameter doesn't matter, quiet shot placement are the only 2 ways I measure success. I have literally shot hundreds of bows in my lifetime and harvested countless animals. The arrow flight I witnessed this beautiful November morning was nothing short of perfect. As this spooky mature doe tried to make sense of my trail she stood head up looking. At 40yrds it would be the longest harvest ever for me. The tension on my #trufirereleases assured my heart it was completely committed. As effortless as I had fell into position my focus was on the limb that lay 20yrds between us. "No problem I'll clear it by 5"" I thought. As I settled my #iqbowsights low, planning for her reaction I watched my #nockturnal glow fade over the limb as she turned her head quickly. The unmistakable sound of #wacembroadheads and bone broke the still morning air and she darted down the hill leaving my #carbonexpress #maximared where she once stood. The pure rush of emotion filled my cheeks as my bow began to trimble. The smile that grew as I sit shaking helped me overlook the fact that once again the camera didn't capture the shot.

Last Saturday about an hour after getting into the stand just before lunch, this fine 8pt GA buck that we’ve been watching along with several others came into within 18yds of the stand presenting itself broadside like a big red barn...and after a heartbreaking week of concern and confusion of what happened or what maybe went wrong but knowing full heartedly without a doubt that all the steps taken before the shot and leading up to it was 110% dead on, the dread finally diminished. My dad called during my State Championship yesterday around lunch with the great news that he had found him finally.!! My amazing wife had finally put all the pieces together on her first ever archery buck and I couldn’t be more proud of how well she had done during the whole experience. I put her up in the tree alone and wished her the best and the rest was up to her. She made it happen. Finally now apart of the BBD club. Congratulations baby you have once again proved that you are unstoppable and have the same ability to do the same as myself even if it means killing a bigger buck than me with your bow in the same year lmao..!! You’ve deserved this and I couldn’t be happier. 🤙🏽🦌🏹 #blackwidowdeerlures #diamondarchery #1steverbowkill #BBD #nockturnal #scottarcheryreleases #ragehypodermics #easton #mossyoak #riversedgestands #sheffieldscoverscents #huntersafetysystems #womenhunters #shekilledAbigun #8pter #wildgameinnovationcameras
