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.

Who eats heart?? 🙋🏼‍♀️

Last year, I fried up the heart from the doe I harvested with some bacon. It was delicious.

Drop some recipes below in the comments! I want to try something new with the heart from the buck I harvested on Sunday!

Here is my first buck ever!

I shot him at 20 yards and he only ran 50 or so yards. I watched him hit the dirt within seconds!
I am so pumped!!
I dragged him out on my own and my parents were there waiting to help me load him up! Thank you both @skyhawk411 @dzavaglio
Shout out to @mike8787 for getting celebratory beers with me.🍻

Last week, I attempted a push jerk at 100# and failed on my first attempt. I ended up getting it on my second attempt.
This week power cleans & push jerks were programmed so I gave 100# another try. It felt eassssy. I hit 105# after this. *cue the smirk*
I feel like my technique is improving slowly and I couldn’t be more thrilled.

I get a lot of does, fawns, and smaller bucks on my cameras. In my 3 years hunting have gotten less than a handful of bucks that I would consider studs.
That being said, I was incredibly excited when I checked my trail cameras this weekend at one of my properties. This guy is a S T U D. I’m hoping to get more pictures of him. It would be a miracle to see him during daylight.
(Yes I know this camera sucks 🤷🏼‍♀️)

Everything can change fast...
•
Two months ago, I decided to practice a little before heading out into the North Woods of Maine.
•
((Swipe))
•
Fast forward to around 7:30pm when the guide and I recovered the bear I shot around 7pm.

Bowhunting is the most challenging thing I’ve done, but it is so damn rewarding. I’m learning so much by just getting out there and trying.
🍻Here’s to harvesting my second animal ever and dropping the hide and skull off at the taxidermist this weekend! 🍻

Apparently these goats needed more food. FAT. 😂

The goal is to own a farm, secluded in the middle of no where with a bunch of animals... Seems like the perfect life for me. 💁🏼

I spend more time with my bow than I do with most people.
Archery is addicting.

Better than yesterday.

I’m stronger, leaning out slowly, and just feeling more comfortable. My mentality has drastically changed. Just going to keep going and see where it takes me.
