Two Bucks Down - Clayton Bowen's Archery Deer

My friend Clayton Bowen has been a busy man in the deer woods over the last couple weeks. A couple Fridays ago I got a text from him while he was hunting in Illinois that said "I think I just got my first buck with a bow!" He was still sitting in his treestand and feeling the adrenaline rush as he was waiting to go track an 8-point he had just arrowed. The Illinois buck had responded to a grunt call and came in right to the base of the tree Clayton's stand was in. Not only did he get a buck, a few minutes later a doe happened to stroll by, and Clayton made another kill shot to put even more venison in his freezer. Here is the picture of Clayton's 8-point.

Just a little over a week later, while I am sitting in my tree stand one evening, I get another text from Clayton. This time he says he has arrowed another buck, this one a 9-point, on a property he hunts here in Texas. But my friend didn't feel as confident in the shot he had made on this buck, so he decided to wait overnight to go look for the deer. The next morning I get this picture from Clayton of him with his buck which he successfully recovered.

Those are two nice deer buddy! Congratulations on a great deer season so far! I've got some work to do if I'm going to catch up with you...

Wow Clayton made some nice catches. For me the biggest catch I've ever made bow hunting was an Eland. Good hunting, hope you catch up with Clayton.

Congratulations on a very nice buck and all that picture did was get me wanting to go now even though I have to wait a few more days.
