Here is a picture of my buck I shot during archery season in Southeast Kansas.. I just started bow hunting again after 16 years due to shoulder problems.. He may not be a monster but he is a trophy to me...
Thanks Everyone!! I was just lucky and blessed to have another chance at this buck. My first encounter was at about 5 yards in my ground blind and he heard me draw my bow back. You know how the rest of that story goes. About a week later, in the same ground blind, I watched him approach from about 45 yards heading straight at me. He closed to within about 10 yards browsing and feeding. I slowly raised my bow and then the staredown began. He was locked on me for about 15 mins standing straight on. I thought uh-oh here we go again. Well, he eventually went back to feeding, then turned around and started walking straight away. I thought I was gonna have to watch him walk out of sight, but at about 18 yards he turned broadside. I made a good shot and he only ran about 40 yards. I forgot how much adrenaline starts pumping especially with a bow in your hand. I love hunting these magnificent animals, never know how it is going to turn out or what you will learn.
We hear more and more about giant bucks these days.
Hunters are on a mission, scurrying to and fro – and even from state to state - trying to find the “perfect” hunting area where big bucks abound and they are found chasing does at all hours of the day.
These properties exist but they are expensive to maintain and generally, very expensive to hunt!
Let’s look at possibilities closer to home – your land, your lease or land that you have permission to hunt!
My brother and I are fortunate to...
