I had a good feeling about the night regardless that we saw only a couple the night before. Chad had been out here all week scouting and found a great buck in the area so it was just a matter of time before we saw him; however the chances of him walking within bow range of our tree stand was slim. The weather was warm but windy as always. After about an hour in the stand, setting up, getting ready, and glassing, we spotted the 9-point about 300 yards out. He was right on the edge of the tall grass and beans in the middle of a 160 acre field with a cattail slough in the middle of it. We made a quick decision that if he bedded back down we would try to get closer. After just a few minutes and quick snack on the beans he did as we thought, he bedded back down in the tall grass. Chad took the camera and I grabbed my bow and we headed down the tree line until we were even with where the buck was bedded. Using the wind to our advantage we started through the beans, keeping low, we had about a 200 yard crawl to go within bow range of the buck. about 150 yards in the wind died down pretty good, so every little gust that came through we advanced about 5 feet. We were now within about 30 yards of the long grass and I had just knocked an arrow when the buck stood back up. Chad ranged him for me at about 50 yards; luckily we had just put the 50 yard pin on my Strother Hope the day before! The buck was quartering away a bit so I stood up, took my time, and let one fly. For a few seconds we thought I missed, but then heard a smack as the arrow hit him. He ran about 40 yards and dropped. I couldn't believe we actually pulled it off!
