When you're a hunter and it's early October, there is not many things more exciting then to know you have a few days to hunt with a cold front and North wind headed your way. On top of that, have some lush green fields and you would think you were going to be in the money. However, this year was different, we were a bit depressed because EHD had hit our deer herd this summer and we really didn't know which bucks had survived. Our Reconyx cameras had revealed what bucks were alive in August, but had shown us very few in September so we were hunting bucks we didn't know if they were alive or not. And to top all of that, the drought had been so bad in our area (like most of the mid-west) we had to water our Biologic plots to keep them alive.

Back to the cold front, I decided to go to a set I called the 141 set. It lies between two blocks of timber and has a perfect gap to catch an Iowa bruiser coming through. I had seen a decent buck here two nights before at last light and was hoping he or another buck may show. The afternoon started out really windy and as the sun started to set the wind started to taper off. A buck we had named Megatron stepped out on the other side of a small field eating in the Biologic. He slowly worked his way across the food plot and started heading toward us. He walked by my tree at 15 yards and my PSE EVO equipped with the new RAGE Extreme broad head did the job! He ran about 50 yards and laid down never to rise again.

You want to talk about blessed! The fourth afternoon of a new season and 50 yards in front of me laid one of my best bow kill bucks ever on the ground. Team PSE has their first buck of the year for Dream Season "The Journey".
