November 17: Forrest Bonin

The last day of peace and quiet before the firearm opener was the type of morning a bowhunter dreams of in the Midwest. With perfect weather and a Great prediction on Deercast, I was super excited to get the chance to grab my PSE and have Terry running camera.

The day started off slow but soon those sweet November sounds of a buck grunting as he was trailing a doe through the timber fell on my ears. A buck we know well, Highbrow, was bumping a doe right towards our tree. He walked directly beneath us and offered me a quartering away shot at 20 yards. After a well placed arrow he took a few bounds and stopped. I took the opportunity to grab another arrow and put the finishing touch on him. He made it another 10 yards and my first Missouri buck crashed within sight of the set! To say I was elated would be an understatement. The buck fever feeling took over and the shakes came in waves, a feeling only a bowhunter can truly understand and love!
