    Finally after 37 years GOOD BUCK DOWN!

    So I've been hunting Jersey and Pennsylvania since I was 16. Never had much luck. I had a few good scrub bucks and plenty of does here and there but nothing great. Got a nice basket 8 in Pennsy about 10 years ago. Well today was going to be one of those days. I was only going to be able to stay out until 10. I had does a small six a spike and button buck around me all week. Got in the tree at 5:30 and settled in. Its was unusual to not even see a tail before 8. At 8:45 I talked myself into getting a jumpstart on what I had to do today so I could get back out for a evening hunt. As I was putting my phone a way. Out of nowhere two doe come running under my stand. The larger doe was very skittish and ran off 40 yds out. I decided if she came back in and present a shot I would put meat in the freezer. Well she turned and headed my way. Keeping an eye on her to come in broadside I see something coming from the direction of the does and I fully expected another doe. Then he stepped into view. I Never really looked at his rack I just knew he was a nice deer. I settled in on him broadside and let it fly. Whack good hit he ran 60yds to the middle of the field pumping good blood. He crashed in view and I was pumped! Then he gets up and casually walked to the woods line and stopped in the tall grass. I could tell if he layed down or walked off. After 37 years and a 2 hour wait to let him expire I final had my nice buck!

    Thanks for letting me share my story. And good luck to everyone the rest of the season!
