This is one of my best in my opinion, maybe not my biggest but my best. After moving back to Michigan from California, I hadn't hunted in about 5 years. I bought a Buckmasters BTR bow at Walmart and I shot it very well instinctively. Then on the eve of Oct 3rd, 2004 I was actually climbing down from my tree, but then this guy was the last of 3 bucks to come in at 10 yards. I carefully got back in my stand, retrieved my bow, then skewered him with an arrow. I tracked him about 80 yards until I found him and my 5 year dry spell was over!

This is a buck I killed in 2010 on my favorite WMA here in LA. The best part about the hunt was that I tagged him on the opening morning of the bucks only firearm season. He came in to investigate a tending grunt and can call. After several tense minutes of thinking I would not get a shot at him as he came straight in and then turned straight away, for some reason at 25yds he decided to angle out into the select cut area I was perched on the edge of instead of heading directly back the way he came. It was then that I was able to slip a 165gr Simmons Shark between his ribs and put him down after a 70yd run.

Largest state land buck to date. About 15 yrs ago. Had scouted out a much smaller 6 pt and set up for him. This was one of those that appeared over the ridge from nowhere. The only shot presented was when he walked directly under the stand and was shot at the base of my tree. 60 yrd dash and it was over. Came home and retired all my compounds for recurves after that.
