November 29, 2008, 8:55 a.m. was a Saturday morning I will never forget. It was a cold, overcast day with very little wind. I was perched up in a tree on top of a ridge line above a harvested corn field. At sun up there were wild turkeys roosting all around my tree so it was a very exciting morning. I passed on a few hens and jakes and decided to wait out the rest of the morning hoping to encounter a decent buck. It was about 8:45 a.m. I turned around and saw the monster 11-point buck about 200 yards behind me. I gave a short quick bleat call, which got his attention. The buck came in for a perfect 20-yard shot. I put a perfect double lung shot that sent the buck running. He fell to his death aproximately 150 yards away. This day was definitely a hunt to remember. Thanks, Hoyt, for making bows of perfection!
