Congratulations to Rodger on taking this trophy archery buck, we call “The Dude.” While in stand, Rodger heard a deer crossing the creek. Turning toward the tree, Rodger noticed a buck raking the brush above him, then continued coming slowly thru the thick brush. While walking toward Rodger, The Dude stopped and looked up at him in the tree. Rodger thought he was busted…….then the Dude slowly passed by his right side. With his bow hanging on the left side of the tree, Rodger had to let The Dude pass by, then turn 180 degrees, quietly, to make the quartering away shot at 15 yards. After 60 yards, it was over. Excellent shot!
If you are looking to get away from the high volume, production outfitters, TCO might be the place for you. Rodger had hunted 5 different states in five years, without bagging a buck. Two hours here at Turtle Creek Outfitters and Rodger tagged out. There’s no guarantees here, but if you are well prepared, put in your time in stand, and have a bit of luck, then maybe you’ll get an opportunity to harvest your buck of a lifetime. We hope you do!
