Don't let them talk you down about not getting a buck. I have hunted for 13 years and just got my first buck last year, and he was only a 3 point. But thats not the point, You can't help what mother nature puts in front of you. Hunting isn't for trophies, it's for food and the experience of the hunt. Just enjoy being in the woods and when the time is right you will get your big buck.
Lord, let my arrow fly true, make this a swift and humane kill, Save him from any suffering.
