the open, I whistled and he came to an abrupt halt. I released the arrow at 30 yards, and this time my arrow found its mark. But I stood completely astounded as I watched my buck and 11 other bucks bound off back into the clearcut. After all the deer had disappeared into the thicket, I sat down to take a few minutes to collect my thoughts and relive what had just taken place. Not only had I harvested a beautiful thick-racked 8-point, but I had missed an even larger buck not even two minutes earlier and had seen 10 other bucks as well. We all know that hunters are exceptional story tellers, but this is no story; it happened, as incredible as it was. I witnessed 12 bucks chasing the same doe. I went back to my house to make some phone calls and to give the deer time to expire. The night before, my father and grandfather had left to hunt in Marienville, an hour away. They didn’t know I was going to take the day off, and A nice buck emerged from the beech brush. Then two more deer emerged behind him, and they were both bucks as well. they were shocked when I told them what happened, and they also said they would be on their way home soon. They met me at the house and we all rode together to recover the deer. With light fading along with the blood trail, we decided to come back early the next morning. I don’t think I slept at all that night; I got up NOVEMBER 2009 Saturday morning and went to work while my dad and grandpa searched for my buck. Finally, at one o’clock, I raced home, changed clothes and met them at my grandfather’s house, only to find that they had lost the blood trail and hadn’t recovered the deer. I was devastated. After a quick lunch we decided to go back in and continue the search. Where they had last found blood, we split up. I went up the hill to where I thought I could see where a deer had made some marks going up the bank. Standing under a small beech tree, scanning the ground for blood, I looked to my left and saw my buck. After an hour of reliving the shot with my father we got the buck out of the woods and back to camp. He field-dressed at 170 pounds, sported a 19-inch spread and 4-inch bases. After telling my story to many of my hunting buddies and leaving them in disbelief that I had seen 12 bucks chasing one doe, I have come to the conclusion that, when archery hunting Pennsylvania whitetails during the rut, they really are cheaper by the dozen.
