I got out bow hunting today for the first time in weeks. My knees have been bothering me something fierce lately and have kept me out of the stand.
I decided to hunt a ground blind in an urban spot today. With the light rain and snow I didn't feel like climbing into a tree stand.
I arrived at my spot around 2:15, got dressed and was in the blind by 2:30. Around 3:30 I was texting my friend. I put the phone down and was picking up my book when I saw this buck right in front of me. I put the book down and grabbed my crossbow. When I picked it up the arm brushed up against the blind, and the buck heard the noise. He froze, and I had a quartering away shot at 20 yards. I placed the crosshairs on his heart and squeezed the trigger. The bolt zoomed right into his vitals but didn't pass through. He bounded off with the bolt sticking out and blood pouring out of him.
I only waited about 10 minutes before I got out of the blind. I immediately saw a HUGE blood trail. I followed it for about 20 yards and found him piled up right on a deer trail.
When I got up close I noticed that he wasn't as big as I thought. In the short time from first seeing him till I took the shot (about 10 seconds) I thought he was the 160 10pnt I've been after earlier in the year. I'm not complaining at all though. I'm just as happy getting a doe as I am a buck.

Great late season buck! I saw three deer during both gun seasons and all were one night during second gun season. Had a good buck come out but just wouldn't give me a shot in the cut corn field. Congrats again!
