My good friend Roman Hershberger called me today when I just happened to be on the road headed in his direction. (I was not headed to his house, just in the general direction)
He said he had some excitment in the woods this morning, and if I had a camera with me I should stop by. (He said I could stop by anyway )
Well I just happened to buy my wife a new tiny little digital the other day and she had it with her. We had business to atend to first at the woodburner store,so after business we headed to his house.
Now Roman has had his share of excitment lately, his wife just gave birth to their ninth child, and he's been pretty busy building bows and furniture.
When we pulled down the driveway at his place deep in the heart of Amish country, there were corn shocks in the field on one side, and the corn field on the other side was picked clean. That could be the reason for all the buck sightings they've had the last couple of days.
When we pulled up to the shop parking area, there on the concrete slab was a big brown body with lots of bone head gear. I got out of the car and went to look. Roman came out of the shop with a big grin on his face. After hand shaking and back slapping we carried him to a better position for pictures.
Now understand that Roman, being a devout Amishman, will not pose for pictures. I respect that in him and don't push it. I was so pleased for him, as much as if I had taken the deer myself.
I have known Roman for about a year and 1/2, and consider him as close a friend as I have in this world. The bow he took this buck with is one he has been developing for about a year and he said it would be his hunting bow for this year. IT WORKS!
