The thorn-filled plains of South Texas are the epitome of biodiversity. From the gorgeous green jay to the massive indigo snake the region is a wildlife haven.
As a veteran bowhunter climbed into a stand overlooking a drying creek bottom he wondered if the big whitetail buck he had been pursuing would reveal itself this evening.
It is after all what drew him here and with the wind blowing into his face and away from what he thought was the buck’s bedding area, everything was perfect.
There was one small glitch.
He did however get to the stand a late and he would only have about an hour before dark to make it happen.
That’s “ok” he figured as these are the minutes when the wild lands come alive.
Then he heard it.
A high-pitched bellowing scream that echoed throughout the bottoms.
As his adrenaline production went into overload, he pondered what might be making the sound and why it was coming his direction. The screams got louder and louder, so he readied an arrow just incase.
Suddenly from out of the underbrush walked a large monkey.
