October 18, 2013 proved to be an interesting day for Ohio bow hunter Garrett Robbins. Like many of us, a lot of prep work was done, and now it was finding time to hunt.
Garrett arrived in his stand after work around 5:00pm. Hunting the edge of a woods overlooking a field, Garrett got set up in his tree stand and began the memorable hunt. After waiting for 10 to 15 minutes Garrett went through a series of cuts using his DeerCutter for the first time. Garrett was “just kinda messing with it, trying it out.” Not long after cutting, three doe appeared in the field and began browsing. After watching the doe for about ½ an hour, two buck appeared. Interestingly enough, Garrett surprisingly watched a large coyote enter the field running up the fence line toward the buck. Both bucks immediately ran out of the field not to be seen again.
Garrett continued watching the doe still browsing in the field at which time a larger buck appeared out of a small ravine that came within 30 yards of Garrett’s tree stand. At that moment Garrett delivered the well placed shot that resulted in harvesting this Ohio buck!
Garrett used a Ten Point Crossbow and Rage 2 blade broad heads. The DeerCutter was the only device used during the hunt.
Date/time of Hunt: December 22, 2013 5:15pm Crossbow Kill with use of Deer Cutter / Glenford, Ohio Ladder Stand
I arrived at my stand at approximately 5:15pm. I settled into my stand, and after approximately 35 minutes at my stand I decide to use the deer cutter. I started with a soft cut, increased in sound just a little, and within 10 minutes I saw 3 doe. Coming in behind the 3 doe I saw a buck. The buck circled around my stand with the doe, not yet sensing anything, and they began to move and head towards the corn field. I then made my decision that I liked the buck and was going to take a shot. Because my deer cutter is so easy to handle, I had no problem drawing my crossbow without noise and made a nice shot which hit both lungs on the buck and caused the does to scatter into the corn field. After about 50 yards of blood trailing, my Dad and I found the buck in the trees. I was excited and always have my deer cutter in my gear when I go out for a hunt.
