The Story
I saw this bruiser and a much smaller buddy of his coming my way, and immediately knew I wasn't passing him up. The much smaller buck came through first right under me and I thought I was had, but he never even paused to look up, looking at the bigger buck and how swollen his neck was, it was apparent the rut was starting and they were busy doe hunting. Big brother came to about 15 yards and stood quartering away and I let my arrow fly. I watched him pile up about 50 yards away and let out a sigh, as this was my first ever antlered deer, and to take it with my Bear bow made it all the sweeter.
