145 7/8 bow 10pointer.Forsyth Co.Remington scent control. Left at 3pm to go hunting walked to ladderstand my son Brett Lane and Josh Stafford had put up.After getting up in stand could not see very well because they hadnt cut brush out of way so I decided to get down .walked about 800 yds to another ladderstand got up in it and felt loose so tightend rachet straps.I made alot of noise so didnt feel comfortable hunting there.I got down and walked about 1/2 mile to another ladderstand.I was hot and sweating and climed up in stand sit there resting when squirrel started barking I could see a large body deer coming through the thick cover.I turned to the right and got ready,the deer stopped behind some thick leafy bush ,so i picked out a hole and when he walked into it i released my arrow.I held 40Yd pin on his back and shot .it sounded like it hit a pillow.I didnt see the deer or hear him fall. Or run off.I set there quietly listening and watching. Finally i got down and walked over tocwhere i had shot and he was laying there 30 yds from where i had shot him.I grabbed hold of the horns and was in amazement and counted ten points,i thanked God for letting me take such an awsome deer.
