Pic of my hunt
 
I sat on my stand for 2.5 hours listening to birds singing and squirrels running around. All of a sudden I heard a noise like a squirrel running. I looked and saw some legs. I slowly grabbed my bow from the hanger and held infront of me. Couple more steps and I saw his antlers. YES! as I said to myself. He was about 50/60 yards away, all cleared (nothing between me and him, just two trees). He slowly and cautiously walked toward me. At one time he stopped and looked back. I thought to myself that he wasn' t alone. I waited til he moved and then put my release on the loop and then froze. I told myself that I will not do anything stupid to get busted. So I waited for the right shot. He stood about 15/20 yards broadside, but the tree was infront of his vitals. I didn' t want to put the arrow on the stomach, so I waited. Slowly he moved in about 6 or 7 yards quartering. I told myself that I will not let him walk right under my stand. So I drew my bow. What the h-ck! My elbow was so tired of holding the bow to hide my face (I don' t wear face coverage). There is NO way I will let this happen. So I pulled harder and, viola, I put the pin right on the spot. I saw the arrow stopped right before the fletching. At the same time he took off. Boy, the sound of cracking was so amazing. This was the first time I hear this. Well, to make the story short, here is the picture.



Here is my setup if you are carious:

Bowtech Tech29 at 25" draw
GoldTip 5575 at 26"
100 grain BD (custom)
60# draw
