    So last Saturday my nephew (Senior in high school) put a hit on a whitetail with his bow. Searched for it but couldn’t find him. He came back the next day with his dad and their beagle, Radar, to track the buck down. Three miles later they found a gut pile...

    Turned out the buck ran in front of another guys stand and he dropped him. My nephew was bummed as it was a nice buck. His shot hit bone in the shoulder and wasn’t one that was going to kill the animal. The guy saw them out looking and invited them to see the buck.

    Nice buck.

    So yesterday he didn't have school and went back to the same spot. He wasn't in the stand 10 minutes and a buck wanders through. He shoots and the buck drops within 50 yards. His dad was at work and I was available so I went and helped him haul it out. I think it's a nicer buck:
