Bow Used: UltraMag

It was November 29, 2008, a very cold morning but perfect for deer movement with an overcast layer of clouds with very little wind. At day break I realized I had climbed a tree right in the middle of around 60 roosting wild turkey. It gave me an interesting morning standing frozen with my Hoyt Ultramag in hand for the first hour and a half of the hunt waiting for a decent Tom to come into range. Unfortunately they made there way the opposite direction. Finally after and hour and a half of standing frozen I turned around and saw 11 point monster walking parallel to me at around 100 yards away. I gave him one small bleet and he came straight for me. It was a 20 yard perfect broadside double lung shot that brought the monster to the ground within a 150 yards. The 11 point buck scored 168 2/8 gross. This buck is a trophy of a lifetime and couldn't of done it without my Hoyt UltraMag. Thanks Hoyt for a great product.
