First Crossbow Buck

I have been extremely busy with fulfilling military obligations and spending time with the wife but I was able to get out sporadically through the year and it paid off for me. This guy walked up to work one of three scrapes that I was overlooking. He walked up the hill to me and had his nose up the whole time smelling the Tink's 69 I had put out in a bottle for him. This is the second time that I have been successful during the rut, thanks to the use of scent. He is a decent 9 point and I think pretty good for public land. Not the biggest, but definitely a public land shooter. Thanks for reading my short story and thanks to my wife for letting me sneak out for the day. Forgot to add this the first time, but I used a Horton Vision 175, Carbon Express Aramid KV bolts, and 100 grain rage broadheads. One shot right through the heart, and he ran maybe 30 yards.
