Kaibab trophy.

On Sept. 10, 2008, the weather was perfect and in the low 70s. I was still-hunting when this buck jumped from its bed. He was only 30 yards away behind thick cover, and I could only see parts of him. I knelt down and spotted a small shooting lane about six inches wide by 12 inches high exposing his vitals. It was 2 p.m. when the arrow found its way into the buck's shoulder. The 33-yard shot was perfect and he only went about 60 yards. My Kaibab buck had a 28-inch outside antler spread.
