Persistence pays Big Time!

  View Printable Version 

As you might have guessed from the title, this story focuses on being persistent when bow hunting. This is not a tale of my own personal hunting adventure. It is a snapshot of my daughter Madison's pursuit of a specific buck. Madison has bow hunted off and on the past 4 years, with her dedication to her studies and playing golf for her college, she had to put hunting on the back burner from time to time. This year though was a different story. This year she was able to focus more on bow hunting, and practicing her archery skills. Don't get me wrong, she still has a very full school schedule and works, but now with her living back home, she has more time to spend in the woods. And that is exactly what she did this year. Logging countless hours in her groundblinds pursuing not just a whitetail deer, but a true Iowa Giant. After several nights with no success she never gave up. Her positive attitude and excitement to get back out as soon as possible was very infectious. Even after her encounter with her target buck and succumbing to the dreaded "buck fever" she still persisted. Finally on November 16th she had her third encounter with "her" buck........this time she stayed composed and focused. With one well placed 30 yard shot ( that she practiced over and over on the block target) she fulfilled what many bow hunters only dream about. She got "her" buck. Her excitement, persistence , and most importantly the respect she showed her buck, added another layer of pride I have to be her Dad.
