Jason Watts writes, "I hunt exclusively with archery tackle, and have been lucky enough to harvest trophy whitetail, antelope, black bear and mule deer with my bow in my home province of Alberta.
I was lucky enough to harvest this buck on October 12, 2004. I first saw him a few days earlier on October 10, which was a Sunday morning, and watched him from a distance for the next two days in order to get his routine in my head.
I set up on the second evening close to where he left his bedding area to move into some standing crops to feed. He came out about 80 yards down the treeline from where I was positioned, and I was able to maneuver myself into a good shooting position before he entered the crop. The shot was taken from a distance of 45 yards, with a Browning Backdraft bow set at 75 lbs, with Easton Arrows and Thunderhead broadheads.
I rough scored him at 202 gross, and 188 net non-typical."
