Size: 2 Point
Shot Distance: 30 Yards
Harvested With: Crossbow
Story: After being in the blind for nearly 2 hrs without seeing a deer I thought we would go home empty handed, with only memories of time well spent. But with only a few minutes of shooting light left this spike showed up approx. 100yds away. He was picking up acorns and appeared to have no intentions of coming closer. Then he started walking straight toward our blind. Having the tripod and crossbow set up in the wrong blind window, I had to do some fast rearranging. By the time I got everything re set up the buck was approx. 30yds straight in front of the blind.I asked Archer if he was on the deer and all he had to say was FLIP THE SAFETY, FLIP THE SAFETY, and when I did he instantly pulled the trigger. The deer went about 100 yds before crashing. Archer 2 Dad 0. Praise God for once again blessing us.
