So I still have one buck tag and a month and a half to use it but I figure why not start early in the morning. So I get on my bike and head for the cabin in the woods on my in-laws place with thoughts of the one that got away. All my friends know the buck I'm after cause I have talked about him for a few weeks now and he is the same one the doe snorted from the missed hog arrow. He is a cool looking 8pt frame with splits on both G3s and I've had him under 20yds twice in the last week's and not got a shot. With a good sleep in the cabin I was up well before light and me and the Silvertip were out the door with high hopes. On the walk to the stand I could hear deer running around in the leaves. The sun rose to another overcast cool morning. But I figure how lucky could a guy be surely this will be another deer watching sit. As I sit and look at the beautiful Silvertip hanging in front of me and thinking about my hunt yesterday. A few deer are off in the distance as shooting light comes in so I do some grunts and a few snort-wheeze calls. And I get a instant response from off to my left but never see him. And as the story goes I hear some deer moving my way at a fast pace so I stand up and get the bow ready. A doe pops out with a buck not far behind and as they pass me I'm at full draw and stop him with a voice grunt. He slams on the brakes and I let go the same TreeShark and it now has killed its fifth animal can't wait to see what kind of luck the other 5 have I them cause Paul gave me 6. This one still looks good as new so it ain't done yet , I still have 2 doe tags also. Well the shot was good and they tend not to go far with a Shark hole in the chest. He is a really neat buck and like I tend to say he is no monster but I'm proud to have him. And he is the buck I wanted with the forked G3s , they are both cool bucks for central Texas. And to shoot them with a very cool bow borrowed from a good friend made it even better. I always say I like to shoot and if I see a critter I want to shoot then I shoot it big or small so I'm a happy hunter. So now out of buck tags I'm going to fill my doe tags and hunt some hogs now and prob some exotics and ducks might do some predator calling oh and the crappie should start bitting soon. And I just got invited on a south Tx Javelina hunt for next month. So no need to feel sorry for me , but dang I wish I had another buck tag.....

A big thanks to my friend and fellow tradganger Paul for the broadheads and letting me borrow the Silvertip it has been several years since I have taken a buck with a longbow.....

Great shooting as usual Sam. Say, that bow looks very familiar. My late twin owned one just like it with the same specs. and I put it up on the TG St Judes auction the year he died. Can you ask your friend if that is where he got it. Just want to know as it is fitting that it is doing what it is supposed to do and my late twin would be proud.
