Story: I'd just returned from a 7 day family vacation in Florida and was a little "starved" for some bowhunting action. I had one day to hunt before returning to work. Got on stand about 3:30 that evening and while I enjoyed the time to be in the great outdoors, I didn't see any deer until I heard a sound at 6:00 and turned to see this boy coming in quickly. I had captured a couple of good 8-pointers on trail cam but he wasn't one of them. I heard another deer following but couldn't see him yet when this one offered a clear shot so I went ahead and took my shot at about 20 yards. The arrow passed through and he left the scene in a flash. I heard him crashing around on the next ridge. A short recovery and I was feeling better about the time I missed.
