    Hey guys I posted this on my team thread, but thought I'd share here too. I was able to get my first archery buck Sunday morning. I had a very uneventful hunt and was even about ready to leave until I heard what I thought was a grunt. Not a minute later a doe comes running by with not one, not two, but three bucks following her. First one was just a little guy and the second guy was a legit big boy, but I couldn't get him to stop for me. Think he had something else on his mind. And finally this guy comes running by and I stop him at 25 yards and let one fly. I was lucky enough to hit heart and both lungs. He ran maybe 40 yards. I doubt he will score much past 110 or so, but I couldn't be happier.
