Default I finaly got my first buck ever. Bow or gun.

Hey guys,
So after 12 years of hunting and passing on three nice bucks because of the stupid Earn A Buck system I finaly connected on my first buck ever. Here's the story.

I set up a stand on the edge of a bean Field that is surrounded on three sides by woods. Well I am set up with a trail on my left and a trail on my right and a small tree directly ahead of me. So I am in my stand and across the been field I see this buck walking the edge. He filters down towards me just as I hoped and then he gets to the small tree and I am expecting him to make a decision, left or right. Nope he walks straight through the small tree and right under my stand. I am freaking out cause I think I am not going to have a shot because it's TOOO CLOSE of all things. So I draw back while he is under me just hoping for an angle and sure enough he turns and walks to my left and gives me a 5 yard quartering away shot. I was nervous because of the distance but put my 10 pin behind his shoulder and let one fly. Perfect shot. He took off and toppled at 35 yards. This is my first buck ever so I am super pumped.
Side note: I scored my buck at 126 3/8. This is my first buck so needless to say, I have never scored a buck before. I found some websites to help out so I think I was pretty accurate. I sure hope that I missed a couple inches though cause with deductions he is just outside of book. We'll see when I can get him in for an official score.
