Mitchell Thanks go out to Joshua Mitchell of Washington state who shares this late-season bow trophy with the BBZ.

Joshua writes, “I shot this buck at 20 yards with a Matthews Switchback XT. He is not as big as some of the bucks that are taken in the Midwest, but for Washington state, they don’t come much better. This buck is 5 1/2 inches at the bases and carries the mass through his beams as you can see in the picture.”

Nice buck, Joshua, in a part of the country that most hunters don’t think of when they think “whitetails.” —Doug Howlett
