Default My Christmas Present!

Wow! I finally got a deer with my bow! I thought I was shooting at a 10 pointer but got this weird one instead. On X-Mas Morning! He caught me literally with my pants down. A weird series of events left me having to take a leak from my stand. At 7:45 AM, I had just finished taking a leak and had just retreated through 4 layers of cloths, and there he was. Twelve yards away on a trail behind me. I saw 5 on one side and a g-2 with a sticker, and said "grab your bow". The bow was behind me and when I turned to get it, the safety belt hung up. I ripped it around me, he heard it and stopped with his head behind a bush. I grabbed my bow and got it on the other side of the tree and he was still standing there. There was a large limb between us and I used it to draw behind. Once at full draw, I crouched slowly until I could see his vitals. Centered my pin and shot. Nice double lung, he went 46 yards and fell over. What a great hunt! I think it was my 75th hunt. I certainly put in the time. Started to get weary. But I knew that I couldn't get one from my livingroom.

Merry Christmas to all!
