    Have been getting this group of bucks coming in on camera since late July, was hoping at a chance on the big 11, but opening day i had a chance on the 8 in velvet. My first ever buck in velvet. He came in with only 10 minutes left of shooting light, with a herd of does and smaller bucks in the corn pile. I shot him at 23 yards. By time i got down the tree it was dark. Couldnt find my arrow, or see any blood. My chances were slim at finding him. Just thought i had a bad shot. I came back Sunday and found my arrow full of dried blood, i knew then he was somewhere dead. After riding around the buzzards led me to him. shot with crossbow at 23 yards Snow Camp, Alamance County

    Fantastic! If they would just open up the archery season the last week of August, you could have got him with full velvet :(. Nice job, though!
