Chatham Co Buck
September 23, 2014 at 1:17pm
I started that morning at 0530 in the stand. I saw a couple of deer and got out for lunch around 1130. I got back in my stand by 1:00 p.m. and saw this buck at about 15 yards (due to the cover) from my stand around 5:00 p.m. I knew this was the buck I was hunting for since I saw trail cam photos from the previous year and this year. Thankfully, I was able to draw while sitting down with three other deer within 15 yards. Buck fever got ahold of me. The first shot could have been better but the deer dropped with a spine shot. I was able to follow up with another arrow and get the job done. Still, I'm proud of my first bow kill with a buck after having to eat tags for the past 3 years.
