View Full Version : Friday Nights Harvest

10-03-2011, 06:53 PM
I left work early on Friday to get in an afternoon Hunt. Pretty quite evening then about 6:00 this young fella pops out and gives me a nice quartering away shot. After checking the arrow and finding good blood I think it would be cool to have my Sons help me track and recover the animal. Spend some quality time with Dad. I head back home P/U the boys and head back to the stand. Well the skies open up, we've got heavy rain, fog and lighting. My great idea is getting pretty soggy. We get to the POI and of course the blood is washed away. We head in the general direction without any success. Drenched we head back, I have the boys stay at the POI, so I've got a lighted reference and then head back out. I'm starting to 2nd guess myself and I'm worried if I don't recover him tonight he'll go bad. About 60 Yds out I spot a white bellly through the fog. The long faces turn to smiles and a big congrats from the boys make for a perfect ending to this roller coaster ride. Drenched we dress and drag my trophy back to the truck 4735 4741
