I thought you all would like to see the buck my husband has been scouting and missed.His arrow went right into a tree limb. Here is a picture from his trail cam just before bow season.





He took this picture just after dark.

Did you wrap it in bacon and throw it on the grill or make a stew?

That sucks! Be sure to marinate the tree though, I have had problems with it being too tough. Pair it with a nice bottle of Merlot!

Good luck retrieving that broadhead. I find that lemon pepper really tenderizes tree limbs well plus it get's rid of that woody taste.

Wow! Great buck, I'm sorry he missed. That looks like a 2.5-3.5 yr old tree. Think of what it would have been next year! He should have let it walk!!
