So this year I was lucky enough to tag this incredible whitetail in full velvet with my bow. Every year for the last 16 years my dad and I take the 13 hour journey from Wisconsin to the home of the Sundance Kid, Sundance Wy. We try to get out there the first or second week of September. Most years friends or family members join us but this year it was just us two. After we arrived this year we took our time scouting the first two nights, watching and learning the patterns of the deer. After watching a bachelor group of nice bucks follow the same ravine in a new green field we found the year before, I was excited to start hunting. The next day was opening day but our wind was worst case scenario. I elected to not even go in and hang my stand, we did not want to wind bump any of these bucks. The next day the wind was perfect, we went in at noon and hung the stand. Four hours later I went back with my bow to hunt, the trap was set! As soon as I was setup I started glassing and spotted two bucks bedded about 400 yards up the hill. Around 5:45 they got up out of their beds and started working down towards me. By the time they got down to me there was 5 bucks in the group, the first small buck walked right by me at 15 yards. I knew there was a great chance the others would follow his exact trail, and sure enough they did. I picked out the biggest one, drew my bow and grunted to spot him broadside at 15 yards. The shot was perfect, he ran 60 yards and I heard him crash. After that nights hunt was over I picked up my dad and we retrieved the deer and brought it to the local meat processor in Sundance. That night dad and I had a few cold beers and talked about hunts of the past. They are always great memories to talk about and always will be. Everyone have a safe hunt this year and I wish you the best of luck!
