Last season, Janson had arrowed two really nice bucks near the Harpeth River just outside of Nashville, Tennessee. However, he was hot on the trail of a tall-tined 9-pointer that had frequently been showing up on his trail-camera. Finally, on a cool November morning, Janson was able to rattle the lovesick buck into bow range. Without hesitation, the bowhunter steadied his pin and let an arrow fly toward one of the best bucks he had ever encountered. At the time, the shot looked and felt right, but Janson soon hit a wall when the blood trail he was following dried up. For the next two days, Janson and his friends desperately combed the entire area looking for any sign of the buck. Unfortunately, their search left Janson empty handed and heartbroken.
