    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.

    I appreciate all the nice comments. I have hunted for along time and for the last 10 years bow hunting has become my passion. I finally got to the point that anyone can shot a deer with a high powered rifle but you really have to put in alot of work and patience to consistantly kill with a bow. This paticular deer isnt by far the largest I have killed but it is the most special because how cool the hunt turned out

    I had a situation several years ago that both excited and scared the @#^%$ out of me. I was riding through a rural area when I saw a huge buck in the back of a field. I pulled in beside an old barn and got out my camera and headed around the field. I had gotten only 30 or 40 yards when I heard a noise rihgt at my feet. When I looked down there was a big Bobcat crouched right in front of me not three feet away. He did not move and neither did I. I eased my hand into my pocket and pulled out my 22 magnum darringer. I was hesitant to shoot for fear the small weapon would just irritate him but he was making these awful noises in his throat. I put one shot between his eyes. He just slumped and never moved an inch.I have never had such a feeling in my life. It was a beautiful animal and I would loved to have goten some pics of him hunting but also going through my mind were visions of a friend who was attacked by a bobcat when I was small. It was after a stringer of bream.

    Thats what I love about this sight. One little thread and two awesome stories to hear. Frank you probably went straight to the trash with shorts. Glad the cat hesitated longer than you.

    Sounds like a lot of luck was on your side.You was really luck it didn't run right through you.You done ticked that fellow off and he was sure seeing red.Good Shot but a little to close for me.
