Buck Down I killed this buck on public land in Missouri. I went in blind to a spot I had not hunted before. I knew from the aerial there was a small waterhole. Looking at the topos it was obvious that some deer would be bedding on that ridge. I set up downwind of the waterhole about 30 yards. My hunch is that the buck was bedded approximately 120 yards from where I was set up. I saw start milling around and I believe he got up right where I first saw him. He came in scent checking the waterhole prior to approaching and I was just downwind of him. I shot him through the heart, did a slight mule kick ran 20 yards and laid down and died. One of those times a plan comes together perfectly. I must admit there is a twinge of disappointment with his size. I'm still not great at judging deer on the hoof and just haven't killed a ton of deer in my life. That being said I have always wanted to harvest an animal over water and that was done. This is number 9 with a bow and have never shot one with a gun. I was set on killing a larger deer this year. Now I will have to wait till gun season to see if I can get it done with a bow on a larger animal. I added the proper photos in the official contest thread. Enough rambling. Thanks for letting me share.
