I am a disabled veteran and just had surgery due to complications at the very beginning of bow season.

While cotton fields can put you to the test when hunting, persistence and a lot of patience paid off in bagging this nice 8-point buck on November 29th. This proves that while food plots are nice--they are not necessary!! Thankful for this nice buck and meat for the.... Read More
