Young Andrew has an impressive list of deer kills, but no bow kills…yet. Grandpa John Williams stole him away for a little quality time on his north Missouri farm to see if they could change that.

The two spent Saturday, November 4th together in a blind armed with a PSE Fang crossbow. Deer activity was sparse, though that didn’t bother either Andrew or John; it was quality time for them to visit and shoot the breeze.

Andrew had the following Friday off of school, so he and John made plans for another hunt. Their morning hunt found them in a box blind with their trusty buck decoy setup at 20 yards. A shooter eventually showed up, but Andrew was deep in thought (some call it napping) and by the time he prepared to shoot, they realized the logistics of the crossbow in that box blind made for a difficult shot. The buck walked and they decided to switch things up for the afternoon.

After grabbing some lunch, the two went to Andrew’s favorite spot, a box blind overlooking a field of BioLogic Non-Typical Clover where he killed a trophy nicknamed “Curly” back when Andrew was just nine years old.

Once again, John setup a buck decoy in the field at 20 yards. It wasn’t long into their sit before a good buck showed up chasing a doe into the clover. As soon as the buck saw his faux adversary, he abandoned the doe and began a stiff-legged march toward the decoy. The buck circled around, sizing his opponent up while Andrew and John hurried to get ready for the shot. Everything happened so quickly that John was only able to get the main camera up and running. The two other cameras sat in the off position as John triaged the situation.

Andrew leveled the Fang’s scope on the buck’s vitals and placed a perfect Rage behind the deer’s shoulder, passing the bolt completely through the deer. A 75 yard run and the buck stumbled, falling over, marking Andrew’s first bow kill, a first that Grandpa John was more than pleased to have facilitated.

Between wrestling, football, and baseball, Andrew is a busy young man, but he always makes time for Grandpa and deer hunting.
