On Sunday afternoon, everything happened pretty quickly.
I was folded over my lap, attempting to stay warm when I heard the leaves crunching to my right. I slowly turned my head to see one of the bucks that was fighting 60 or so yards from my stand that morning. I didn’t move until he was 15 yards past me. I grabbed my bow, drew back, waited patiently for him to turn broadside, then I released my arrow. He was 20 yards away.
He took off and blood was pumping out of him. He dropped within seconds, not far from my stand.
Shaking uncontrollably with tears running down my face I called my parents. The conversation was the shortest conversation ever... “BUCK DOWN” “Where?!” “We are on our way.”
I picked the phone back up and called Harrison. He knew when I called that a deer had to have hit the ground. I just remember saying “I finally did it, I got a buck!”
I got down out of my stand, and even though I knew where the buck was I followed the blood trail. Oh the blood trail was incredible. Thanks to @wasparchery Drone broadheads for that!
I’m so grateful I was giving another opportunity to take this buck. I couldn’t get a shot on him in the morning, but he came back. Now my freezer is full of venison, delicious venison.

In my 3 years of hunting, I’ve harvested a doe that ran 20 yards and dropped, a black bear that ran 10 yards and dropped, and a buck that ran 50 yards at the most and dropped. Practicing is key.
