This was my golden opportunity! Carefully, I drew back my bow and anchored in, preparing for the shot I had worked so hard for all season. It was down to a final arrow, and as I exhaled one last breath, I felt like the world had just completely stopped. I was in the zone, and time seemed to have stopped. Steadily, I started into my shot, and as the shot broke, I watched my arrow sink into the buck’s body, quartering away. It was a great hit, and blood was pumping from him immediately. I had just gotten my buck the hard way!
