We are a lease of bowhunters and it has been an extremely slow season on our place. Unfortunately, we had a banner crop of acorns this year that have still not rotted and it has been so warm all season long, I have forgotten what itís like to get in the tree without sweat rolling down my back.

We have pictures of quite a few shooters on our lease but one stood out. This guy started showing up in early August when we first got our cameras out. We nick named him Nanner Splits because he had mass like bananaís and splits and stickers everywhere. Well Nanner really liked hanging around one of my sets and one of my buddy Chad's sets. I had a couple of close encounters with him but a doe ruined it on one when I had him at 28 yards and on another he simply took about 15 minutes to make it 120 yards and by the time he was in range it was too dark to see my pins much less his big arse.

Well Sunday morning Nanner screwed up and made a daylight appearance at Chadís set. At 6:58 AM Chad released a double lung Grim Reaper tipped Beamon and Nanner was down in sight 60 yards later. He is an absolutely great buck even with a busted off G-3 on his left side.

Congrats to Chad! And of course, now I can quit passing on other bucks waiting on Nanner and let one fly!
