Hunting to me is more than a hobby it’s a way of life. It makes me relax and helps give me a peace of mind. I try to hunt as much as I can. Right now my main animal is the elusive whitetail deer. The season started September twenty seventh and ends in December. And during this time I usually travel back and forth between work and home where I do the majority of my hunting. And last weekend was no different. But last weekend will be remembered for the day I got the invisible buck. We called it because it was a large deer that was only caught on film. No one had ever seen it except in pictures. And Sunday was all about me and Mr. Invisible buck.
Last weekend I went home to go hunting. When I went out Sunday morning I was met with a pleasant surprise. I was face to face with a nice whitetail buck. We called it Mr. Invisible buck. But this wasn’t too big of a surprise for me due to I was sitting in a tree stand that I setup where the photos were taken of Mr. Invisible. This tree stand was decisively put in a funnel where the deer frequently travel through to go to the clover field. I spent a lot of my time during the preseason watching and learning about these deer patterns or how they travel from day to day bases.
After all my hard work, and all my patience, it finally paid off. I was faced with one of the biggest bucks in that area. At this moment in time, my heart is pounding a million miles per hour, and my whole body is shaking, and I’m warmed with excitement and adrenaline. This is one of the most thrilling experiences that a hunter has. Everything was working as planned; the deer walked right down the trail straight to me and stopped twenty one yards in front of me. I pulled my bow back and let the arrow fly right through Mr. Invisible. He went forty yards and died. I was so excited. I gave the deer twenty minutes just to make sure he had died and then I got down and walked over to the biggest buck that I have ever shot. Let’s just say when I put my hands around the deer horns I felt accomplishment, exhilaration, and great excitement.
This hunt was one that will never be forgotten. It is a story that I will be telling for generations. It just shows that hard work, and a strong passion for something can lead to accomplishment. I certainly am very thankful for this amazing experience and this amazing animal. I know that without my family that have helped me in everything this experience probably wouldn’t have happened and Mr. Invisible would still be out there. In conclusion my hard work, my strong passion for hunting, and help from loved ones has allowed me to succeed and do something that I truly wanted to do.
