Story: Using a groundblind I was seated on the top of a ridge. Below me was a dry notch cut by the Cumberland. Watching and waiting alone in the woods with only radio contact with my husband. The majestic whitetail appeared out of thin air. He was a massive 225 lb buck. As I watched in awe, I clicked the safety on my crossbow. He heard it but continued on sniffing and smelling the trail. I started to get buck fever, but I screamed to myself “ No” And I came out of that quickly. His massive body turned broadside and walked over a fallen blow down. I took this opportunity to lift my weapon. The whitetail surprised me by changing his direction and the impressive creature started to walk directly to me. With only 2 steps he was within 20 yards of my red dot scope .I fired and with 4 mighty leaps he returned to the ridgeline. I called my husband on the radio and I wasn’t before long I realized I got the buck of my life.
