Last night I went out bow hunting. I only saw 3 deer ( 1 doe, 1 yearling and 1 8 point! At about 630pm i had about a dozen gobblers come in, one of the birds was the one of the biggest bearded birds I have ever seen! I had one come into about 15 yds and he caught me about half way back in my draw so I didn't get a shot @ him, but about 5 minutes later or so I had the big bearded bird come into about 20yds. I pulled my bow back took aim and let her fly. I hit him what I thought was perfect! He flopped around for a couple of seconds and then he jumped up and took off running through the timber. I immediatly got down and started after him. I followed blood for about 100yards and never ended up finding him! Man that is frustrating! I am going to go out after work and see if i can find him in the daylight! Has anyone else had this happen???
