Like a lot of hunters out there I have always dreamt about shooting a velvet buck. In my home state of Minnesota where the season opens in the middle of September the chance is VERY slim. There are only a few states that open early enough for even an opportunity of a velvet buck. Luckily for me I can drive over to North Dakota and buy an over the counter archery tag.
On August 31st I will be heading to hunt the bow opener with Heart J Outfitters. Owner Chris Jorde has already emailed pictures of velvet bucks at there Monster Raxx mineral sites to get me excited for the hunt. The days on the calendar can not get marked off soon enough, as my anticipation grows for the hunt I have dreamt about for years.
There are a few bucks on my hit list already, but one stands out above the rest. His name is Wally, and I am hoping to put my tag on his fuzzy antlers. Not only would this help me accomplish a goal I have set out for myself, but will also help out my team on the Monster Raxx Big Buck Contest hosted by http://www.whitetailworld.com. Stay tuned as I update my hunt from the field in a few short weeks.
