"Jared's River Bottom Whitetail"

Jared Bloomgren writes, "While spotting and stalking a cranker mule deer, I was presented with a shot at this nice buck as he cruised the river bottom. After watching this buck pass by twice out of range, I decided to take a shot if he presented the opportunity. After moving to a bit different location, he passed by on a trail at 18 yards. A quick grunt stopped him in his tracks as my arrow broke the shoulder closest to me and exited just behind the opposite shoulder. The buck was down in 40 yards. When things calmed back down I looked up on the bluff to see the mule deer buck still feeding unaware of what had just transpired. He was lucky that day, but I have a rifle tag burning a hole in my pocket and I hope to use my archery tackle during rifle season to take him down."
