Default Kansas Giant Down

Well I got invited to go to a new area in Ks this year. We got there early in the morning and scouted and hung stands the first day. The next morning I was set up in a narrow draw and nothing was moving. I knew we had a lot of scouting to do so I decided I would get down at 9 if the action hadnt picked up. Well at 9 on the dot I hear footsteps coming through. I immediately see a good sized doe picking her way through the draw. I get ready but it passes at 10 yards without a shot opportunity. It then turned and started angling behind me. It gets to the trail I walked in on and realizes something is up. Eventually it sees me and turned straight away and moved off quickly. Well not 10 minutes later I hear footsteps coming up the trail. I start getting excited because I know it has to be a buck following the doe. Soon after I see a big body and start getting excited. It follows the same trail but instead of going behind me, it turns at the last second and gives me a 5 yard shot. I had to make sure my bow limbs cleared the limbs of the osage I was in and consequently lost focus and made a bad shot. I hit higher and further back than I wanted and didn't appear to get much penetration either. We waited a few hours to pick up the trail and 300 yards of sp**** drops we found this 175# beast!

That rancher is going to be upset; you may have shot someone's horse! That thing is HUGE.

Awesome, especially Trad. Style. Way to go!
