My 2009 Archery Buck

June 2, 2012 by CouesWhitetail in Hunt Stories with 1 Comment

Hello folks, hope all is well!! Got a ‘lil story for ya….

I was doing some spot and stalk hunting for coues deer here in AZ on 9 Jan 2009. I spotted a 6 pt. chasing some does up the side of a mountain, so I went into billygoat mode and decided to give chase myself. Well, I followed that rascal well over 30 minutes, playing hide-and-go-seek and never got a good shot angle, due to all the pines and does that accompanied him. So I headed back down the rocky slopes and decided to try another spot back towards the entrance of the canyon. Not too much longer I spotted another buck crossing the unimproved road moving into the woods, so of course, there I went again. The woodline was full of deer, but as you might guess they were all does. I had allowed the Buck to slip by me. It’s absolutely amazing how ghostly these dudes are. So anyway, I started making my way back to the woodline when I just happened to look up, and across the road was a glorious sight… There he was, an 8-point, in all his “buckness” staring right at me!! I was busted!! And I thought I was gettin’ my creep on…

So luckily he was more interested the “softhead”. I slowly followed behind them for about 15min. when they started up the back of a draw.

That’s when I knew it was now or never. I hurried up and ranged a tree that I figured he was gonna pass at 40yrds and sure enough, he stopped just passed it. I took a deep breath, settled my 50yrd pin behind the shoulder and let physics do the rest. The good Lord blessed me and 60 or so yards later and no blood trail whatsoever, I found him with my Goldtip still stuck in his heart. YEAHHHH BBBOOYYYY!!!!!!!! XFORCE BABY!! He dressed at 93.5lbs and he’ll be my first P&Y Buck…
