"Bowhunting Success for Tim"
Photo provided by: Tim Laing

Tim Laing writes, "Took this buck on September 8th with my Hoyt Carbon Element at 45 yards. Got into the area at first light and watched this guy and a group of smaller bucks head into the brush where I know they bed (about a mile away). Wind was ok but just in case, made a large loop around to make sure we didnít push them out. Along the way came across a group of 5 bucks, one very nice one, but they were on a mission to get to their bedding area (on private property unfortunately). After admiring all of the wildlife we were seeing already, we slowly made our way to the ridge where we saw them moving about an hour or so earlier and peeked over. First buck I saw was the smaller 4 point that my brother wanted to get on. We backed out to reposition a little further down the hill and then peeked over again and, WOW, there he was only 60 yards from where we were sitting. Wind was perfect and he was way more interested in rubbing his antlers to remove what was remaining of his velvet. That distraction gave us the opportunity to slip in to get a 45 yard shot on him. Biggest buck I have shot yet! Very special thanks to my brother, Brad, for helping recover this buck and friend, Henry, for work and time spent with me to get me and my bow. Couldnít have done it without either of you!"
