Cousin's 7-point

Here it is. Shot 2 Saturdays ago about 7 yards in front us while we were laying in a corn field. The way we got it was AWESOME!





I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

Well, we just got out of our treestands and decided we would push the section of woods where his dad was sitting in a treestand. Well, I don't like to carry my bow with me when I'm walking/pushing through woods for someone who is still sitting. But he decided to take his "just in case." Well it paid off. Just before that section of woods is a large cornfield we had to walk through and to the left is a big section of a high grass/weed field. We were walking right along the edge of it. About 20-25 yards into the cornfield he was to my left he bumped my arm and said stop. I looked over to see him watching this buck walking quickly through the high grass field about 75 yards away. So I told him we should lay down and I would try to call him into us. Once we laid down we could not see anything but high grass to the left of us where the buck would have been coming from. So once we laid down I hit my grunt call softly 3 different times. About 10 seconds later he popped out of the grass at the edge of the cornfield about twenty feet in front us and stopped on a dime looking right at us. My cousin wasted no time pulling the trigger. He didn't even look through his scope because he didn't have time. Just as the buck started to turn around he shot him high in the back and luckily shot him through the liver real good and ran about 70 yards until he expired. It was one of the coolest experiences and by far the closest kill I've ever been a part of. He still to this day thanks me for grunting him in.

I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

Re: Cousin's 7-point

Nice Pics! I can't wait to hear this story......

The attitude, that we show, will determine our success and failure in the situation we face.
