Well another Saturday has passed and another donkey has bitten the dust. After having a very slow morning a camera check revealed a herd of 9 donkeys frequenting the spot so I decided to go back for the evening hunt. After putting my good friends Will Jenkins and Tim Babikow on stand I proceeded myself. The spot somehow seemed different than when I left and I didn’t have a good feeling for the hunt. Just as I was about to throw in the towel I saw a deer heading my way and she turned that frown upside down. She fed in facing me and I had to wait nearly ten minutes for a good shot, but when she turned I burned an arrow right in the pump station. She almost went down immediately and it was over before it began.
After my moment of excitement was over I immediately thought of my boys and was hoping they got to experience the same. Unfortunately neither of the guys saw a thing, but we all did have a great time hanging out. Like I always say hunting isn’t just about the kill, it’s about all the good times to be had with family and friends while hunting. Those memories will last forever. This Saturday meant a great deal to me as I was able to help my buddy Will out by providing him the meat from my doe. We ending the night by cutting my doe up, telling stories, laughing and just having an all out good time. Hunting is about family, friends, and making memories.
