Been a good year with lots of activity here in Kansas. Hunting with the old Wing Thunderbird this spring ended with a nice gobbler in the bag. This fall I have been seeing more deer than I have in a long time. One sit I saw 12 does and fawns and another netted 14 does and fawns (3 sets of twins)that sit, plus a couple bucks. Last Thursday, November 3,was a foggy, misty morning with just enough breeze to cover a little bit of movement. I got in the stand a good half hour before first light. It always amazes me how much light pollution we have. There are two small towns about 9 miles away in different directions and there is a glow in the dark from both. The sun soon came up and at 7:30 I gave a rattle with the horns , tickling them for a couple minutes and then throwing in a couple grunts. Fifteen minutes went by and I noticed some movement through the leaves towards the creek bottom and to my right. I usually shoot setting down but, decided to stand this time. This makes more a steep angle and makes me worry about not having an exit hole for blood trailing. The deer stopped behind a thick place in the brush and when he did I rose very slowly. Raised my bow, put pressure on the string and waited. He started moving again in a slow, methodical walk. I don't like shooting at a moving deer but, he was going to pass at 18 yards on a well used trail so I made the decision to not try and stop him. He stepped in the shot window, I concentrated on his off shoulder and the arrow was away. I bought a Lumanock to try this fall and it lit up like a laser. Normally I get pass thru's on deer and this time I didn't. He took off at a dead run (pun intended). He ran to a fence line to my left and then there was a huge crash followed by silence.

I waited 45 minutes, then got down and went right to where he went into the hedge row and my arrow was laying on the ground. Very little blood though. Looked towards the fence, then turned to the right and no buck! Looked back at the arrow with a glowing nock and the few drops of blood, then looked thru the fence and there he lay. Crossed the fence and picked him up a little, wow he's heavy.  -
