Finally got him!

July 17, 2014 by Ryan Sullivan

I got trail camera pictures of this buck since 2011 and watched him grow and mature. He was always a nocturnal ghost and never showed himself in the daylight except a few days In the rut each year. I hunted him and attempted to harvest him the past 3 years but he outsmarted me until he chased a doe under my stand one November morning last year. After him standing at 40 yards behind brush for 40 minutes he finally gave me a 28 yard shot and I let my Helim and Rage broad head do the rest. The journey came to an end for this special buck with one release of an arrow. He went on to win the 2014 Arkansas Big Buck Classic and Midsouth Big Buck Extravaganza with a score of 212 1/8. Wouldn’t trade my Mathew’s for any other bow on the market.
