Rick’s Wishbone Kill – Midwest Whitetail Missouri

“Wishbone is a deer I filmed in velvet this summer.  He was easy to distinguish because of two giant brow tines on his right side.  I immediately knew this was the deer I was going to pursue early season.  On Missouri’s opening day I snuck into a small corn field with a perfect wind.  This small field was littered with giant tracks.  At 6:30 p.m. “Wishbone” was the first deer to enter the field.  My jaw dropped, my heart raced, but I was still able to draw my bow and settle my 30 yard pin!”  – Rick
