    This past week has been kind of bittersweet for me with the archery season.  I had an opportunity at a very large 10 point buck but equipment failure kept me from getting that deer. In hind-sight if I would have shot that buck I would have not been out in the woods to take the one I did get. I ended up with a very unique 9 point buck (see ph...
