Story: 8:20 AM. It was real windy and I hadn't prepared for the cold front. As a result I was swinging my feet to warm up. I scared a Doe off that had crept up on me and figured I had lost my chance for that day. About 25 seconds later this buck came up following her. I drew back my bow but couldn't swing around because by stand was in the way. I waited about 1 minute and he came broadside to me. I shot, he ran off and I heard him fall about 75 yrds away. I waited 10 min and headed down the tree. About half way down a Doe came up and watched me climb down. I could have shot her too but this was my first buck and I was a little nervous. She ran off as I pick up by bow. BTW the bow was on the ground I never climb with it. I always lower it down first on a string.
