After a long stretch of scouting and waiting, Lindsay Groom's patience finally paid off.
With the help of her husband, Kevin, Lindsay scouted this buck for two weeks from a blind before coming across its path again on Nov. 7. That afternoon, the bruiser buck came within 10 yards, at which point Lindsay made her shot with a crossbow. They searched for it as the sun faded, but weren't able to locate the buck.
Kevin was able to get the hunt on film, and after watching the kill shot again they decided to track it the next morning. They were able to find the deer just 30 yards away from where they stopped looking the night before, and both breathed a sigh of relief.
Lindsay's buck, which green scored at 158 inches, was her second buck ever and her third deer overall.
