Two years ago during bow season. Im walking out of the woods to head home about 15 minutes before dark(wasn't a good day and was ready to get home.) I was walking down a cattle road in the wide open when I heard a sound. I stopped looked up and about 175 yds away there were two deer sparring and a larger one circling. This is when It got interesting. I knelt down on my knees between 2 saplings about 6 feet tall alittle bush was directly behind me and the light was dimming. Also heavy woods about 50 yds behind me. So here I sat in the wide open grunting to these bucks. I grunted at them for 5 minutes with no response. Excited to have seen these deer sparring I was ok withnot getting a shot. Then I dont know why I decided to grunt again and rattled some leaves on a small branch beside me The third deer lifted his head the went back grazing. So I began grunt and aggresively thrashing the sapling with a stick I had found. Within moments the buck began to trot my way then he broke into a gallop. I set for a shot At this time I am petrified because he is in a full run straight at me. I shot he startled I dont think he saw me I think he was looking past me to the woods behind anyway when I shot he turned slightly I hit him in the spine and he fell paralyzed at 7yds. Immediatly excitment turned to terror When I realized exactly what just happened. Talk about reguvinating I was a 32 year old man jumping around and hollering like a 12 year old boy. And yes the average size 8 pt is on my wall with the arrow. Thanks for listening to my story just thought I would share.
