First bow buck!

Default First bow buck!

Had an excellent morning in the woods yesterday morn. The cold weather settled in central VA and had tons of does moving around at about 60 yards at sunrise. Once the does all filtered out I heard some walking behind me, and it was clearly not a squirell. I turned to see this buck walking up, directly to the tree I had ranged to be 20 yards. Had leaf cover and time to stand up, calm myself, and get in position. Made a perfect quartering away shot which blew through the heart. The buck dropped after 20 yards, all in plain sight.

Funny part was another 8 pointer, wider but with much shorter tines, came walking in 5 minutes later. Let him go, to grow into something bigger next year.
