It was literally the last minute of the last day of a fun, week-long hunt. The time was 7:17 PM on November 5, the last minute of legal shooting light, on the last day of hunting, when a 2 1⁄2-year-old 7-point whitetail stopped broadside 14 yards from hunting buddy South Cox's brush blind. South had traveled all the way from California to experience Texas deer hunting. South never hesitated, bringing his custom longbow to full draw, anchoring on his cheek, and sending an arrow on its deadly mission. The buck went down in sight and South got to notch his first-ever Texas deer tag.
