This gnarly buck came a little too close to this hunter and his recurve.
These fellows are hunting the tail end of the whitetail rut when they catch a gnarly buck cruising for does. After a little encouragement from the grunt tube, the big boy comes in to five yards and the hunter puts a great shot on him.
Watch the video to see how this exciting hunt unfolded.
Hunting with traditional archery gear is tough, but when you finally succeed in taking an animal, success is so much sweeter.
Whether you choose to shoot a recurve, compound, or crossbow, archery seasons are a great way to extend your hunt and draw tags that you might not get for a gun hunt. Get out and start practicing; deer season will be here before you know it.
