Walking through the woods, you hear the fallen leaves crunch underneath your feet. Looking off into the distance, you can hear some rustling in the leaves. Looking through the trees, you see some movement: a big, mature whitetail deer. In that moment everything freezes; it’s only you and your target. You draw your bow, hold your breath, focus in, and then release your arrow to fly. You hit him right behind the shoulder. Lowering your bow, you fill with excitement, knowing you had a good shot on him. Following the blood trail is the next best part. Following the winding trail, seeing the blood drops get closer and closer together, you look up and see the trophy you just harvested, and all of your hard work and dedication pays off. Number 2 on the top five places to hunt, Dillon Wildlife Area is a great place for hunters and fishermen. There are many things to do out there. Located off of Route 146, it is the best public recreation land around here.
