Day #5: Fred Does It Again...
In Fred Lutger's Own Words:
We decided to close up the blind facing east and open the blind's north side. Minutes later I saw a nice buck headed our way and he was on the side we had just opened. He stopped at 10 yards. He was a young 8-point.
I passed but we got some great footage as he took his time feeding past the Double Bull. Another buck approached from the same direction. He was a small 4-point. An hour latter a mature doe came from the same direction as the previous two bucks.
She used the same path as the bucks and was soon to pass 10 yards from my blind. When she did I drew.
"Perfect shot," I shouted out to the camera. Blain had taken the camera off the tripod and was filming over my shoulder. He had to whistle to get the deer to stop in the perfect place for me to shoot and for him to film.
The double lunged doe went
40 yards and piled up in a big clump of prickly pear cactus. I had my first
deer tag filled and we got a good segment for our new TV show, Bowhunting.net
TV. Keep checking in to this web sight. We are off on more hunts this year.
We have 13 shows to film. This is a tough job. Live is Good!
