As the buck fed closer and closer, my excitement grew and I focused on trying to control my nerves and on making a good shot. I had ranged four different objects, so that when the buck came into view, I would not have to waste time ranging him. My plan was to draw back as soon as I saw antler tips. At the first sight of velvet, I drew back and held. The buck took two steps up and stood perfectly broadside. He turned away from me and looked across the canyon towards Randy. This was my moment and the shot was perfect. I watched as the buck jumped forward. I could see that the arrow had hit its mark.
