Rat Slayer score's!!!!

My hunting partner and I have been watching a few bucks all summmer hoping to knock one or two down this fall. Last Saturday was the opener here in Wisconsin, I took my boy The Rat Slayer along for the opening day hunt and set him up where a 10 point buck had been dropping off a poin t in the evenings in hopes he would get a chance to whack him... Well, he came down off the bluff really early to stage on some acorns on the ridge side. 1st deer out was a fork horn. Rat let the forky slide by as he kept the 10 pointer focused in his camera ( He was self filming ) The buck passed by at close range, and the Rat Slayer took a sharp quatering shot. The arrow hit just behind the shoulder, just below the spine. The impact was just as the buck stepped out of the screen, but even though, this would be the boys 1st deer ever with a bow, he held his cool and got right on the camera and filmed the deer running away.
After discussing the shot with him, and realizeing there was no exit wound to bleed out, we waited till morning to track. He was lying about 40 yards from where Rat last saw him....

Pic's taken out of the summer scouting footage:

AWESOME FIRST BUCK way to go congrats to him and proud pop way to go

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Congratulations on your first Bow harvest.. That's a fine Deer right there...
