It was Saturday afternoon, September 29, when Parsons made his way through the rain-soaked pasture to one of his favorite ground blinds. Late in the evening, a good buck he recognized from pre-season trail camera pictures approached the feeder. The buck cautiously took 20 minutes to get into position. At 17 yards, Parsons punched an arrow through the 11-pointer's heart. It piled up 125 yards away.
