Story: "I had been seeing deer for 3 weeks and I had already missed 2 huge bucks two weekends in a row with a faulty muzzleloader. Anyways, the first morning of gun, I made my way up my tree and I decided that I was going to sit there all day. Around 8:30 am a wide 6-point buck came in chasing two does. He would run them up and down the ridge all morning. They never came within 65 yards and I was very hesitant to take a shot and miss again. So, one of the last times he came close to me, he laid down about 65 yards away. After 15 minutes, he got up and chased the does away one last time. By now it was 12:30 pm and I was getting a little sleepy. Before I knew it, I had passed out. I woke up at 3:45 pm to hear something walking right under me. I cautiously looked behind me and it was this big 8 point. He was so close I had to gently stand up to get my 30-30 over my treestand cables. He never knew I was there, and with my heart beating full blast, I made the shot. It was perfect! He ran 40 yards back to the truck and then he dropped"
