Luke’s Yadkin County trophy

Luke is my 16-year-old son who has been a avid hunter since he was 5. He took this deer on the second day of the season on his first sit with his Mathews Traverse at 21 yards. The deer went 80 yards before passing. The deer is in full velvet and green-scored 148, very impressive for a Yadkin County deer. He let this deer walk last year. Luke is pulling 65 pounds shooting the Rage Cut on Contact hybrids.
