    I took off this whole week to bow hunt the rut hard. It was slow until last night and this morning. Last night I watched three bucks and one doe take the same path about 60 yards away. One was a nice buck chasing a doe. At dark I moved my stand 60 yards closer and picked a good tree.

    This morning I got settled in about 5:45. At 6:30, a forky and spike chased a doe around me for a few minutes. Then about 8:30 I heard something walking in from northwest. I got up and grabbed the bow and seen antlers coming towards me. It was the same buck I watched chase the night before. Just like the other deer, he walked right to me and stopped 16 yards in my shooting lane broadside and I smoked him. After 60 yards, he was down for the count. It's my best buck to date with the bow.

    I hunted harder this week than ever and finally connected. It's the most proud I think I've been over a deer.:big_smile:
