On the first day of hunting season this year, Nov. 15th 2008 in Franklin, New York, I was in my stand at around 5:30 am. It was around noon that I shot this 10 point buck, not realizing its size at first. My first impression was that it was a 6 pointer. Imagine my surprise when I saw it was a 10 pointer! The buck gave me a run for my money, after three direct shots it got away. It stumbled for about 3 miles until it finally collapsed. I thought it was a gonner but with the help of my friends we caught up to it.
