    Default Skylars First Buck with Compound Bow 2016

    Most of the long time members will remember my granddaughter Skylar and the various hunting and fishing posts I've made about her over the years. She is now 16 years old and I am so afraid I am going to lose my best hunting buddy to some young man in the future. Well, this past deer bow season, she was able to harvest her best deer to date. We have one stand that is a rifle stand and nothing was there to bow hunt. Our Covert trail camera at the stand showed us that a nice buck was showing up in the early evening one to two times a week. Skylar took a milk crate and broke off some tall weeds to put in front of her and sat down in a briar patch about ten yards from the feeder's fence line. Sure enough later on this buck chose to make his appearance. He came in an stopped on the fenceline. He looked right at Skylar and she said that he had to hear her heart thumping. Anyways, a couple minutes later, Skylar had the opportunity to shoot. She pulled her bow back and sent the arrow straight behind the bucks shoulder. He did a mule kick and ran off. She has shot a lot of deer and fairly decent bucks over the years but nothing like this buck. I came over to her about an hour or so later, as I didn't want to get on the blood trail to soon. We tracked the buck very faint blood trail about a hundred yards and ran out of blood. It was night time by then and we decided to wait until the next morning to pick up the trail. We found him hardly 25 yards from where we had stopped the night before. He was a main frame eight pointer with a big kicker off the left beam. He is 19 3/4" inside and we are hoping he will be a Pope and Young deer, we know he is close. He is being mounted now, and she hopes to have him at the Dixie Deer Classic.
