Jim Roller, IL

Bow Used: Katera XL

It was an amazing four days of hunting. In fact, it might have been some of the best hunting I have ever seen. The rut was in full swing, we had a few hot does in the area and the bucks were going crazy. Prior to this guy coming in, I had seen over 50 bucks from the stand in two days, 4 of which were over the 150" mark. It was about 4pm and the action had been a little slow for the past hour when I heard something coming down the ridge behind me. I turned just in time to see a doe running right to me with her mouth hanging open, I picked up my bow and by the time I got turned around again, this guy was at the base of the ridge. I mouth grunted at him and he stopped, just 34 yards away. I well placed arrow through both lungs sent him crashing 80 yards later. He grossed 145 78 and netted 141 6/8.
