Kramer Ammons, Wichita KS

I shot this doe on public land with an Osage orange bow that I made myself. This was a wonderful hunt that I got to enjoy with my wife, who also filmed the hunt! It is a special deer and truly a trophy because this area seems to be heavily over hunted on public land. I will have this memory forever!!!
