Hunting


Friday afternoon my Pa emailed me to tell me to be ready to hunt when he got home. So after mowing a neighbor’s lawn, I got ready  to go hunting. Pa decided to try a new hunting spot, about a mile away from home. So about 5pm we got in the woods, we had our tree stands and had to pick a good tree to climb. It took us quite a while, but we finally found a good tree. I got up my tree and Pa got in another tree about 15 yds away. We were in our stands for about 5 mins when Pa saw a buck, it hung around us for about 30 mins. The buck was then leaving us and heading into a field, when Pa used his grunt call and the buck came back. The buck came right under Pa’s tree stand, which was a perfect shot for me, I waited until the buck turned his head to look away, and I shot with my cross bow. The buck ran off with my arrow in him, we then got down and went home to wait about 3 hours. Later that night with some friends (Joe, Brian and Josh) along with Bethany and Zoe, we went out to find it. We followed the blood trail for about 300 yds  to find him, he was a 4 pointer with a 16 inch spread. I am so happy to finally get my first buck what a great fall hunting season.
Hope you all are having a great fall as well...
