I was in my tree stand early and had been breaking branches to clear spots in my shooting lanes. I was facing my tree and heard footsteps. I initially thought it was another hunter passing through the area. When I looked to my left I saw this young 5X5 bull standing about 25 yards away. I slowly grabbed my bow and drew. He started moving off, quartering away, then stopped by a tree I had ranged earlier. I settled my 30 yard pin close to the rear edge of his rib cage and squeezed. The bull ran in a half circle and went down 50 yards behind my tree. The arrow had gone in at an angle and ended up lodged in the opposite shoulder. All I can say is, always be ready! I had unknowingly called in a bull by busting branches! Curiosity got the bull!
