Default The wait begins. Big 10

Just launched on a nice hill country 10. Shot was 6 yards and i rushed it a bit. Shot was high. The wait begins. Hopefully i caught the top of the lungs. Big donkey kick after impact.

He was chasing a doe all over the place. I knew as soon as i let it go i should have held lower. I had been holding at full draw for a minute or so before he stopped. I though he was gonna get in this pop up with me. Gonna give him another 15 minutes and go look.

I'm gonna say dead deer, too. He might travel a ways before giving it up, though. Good luck on the recovery.

I just waited 1.5 hours after the only to find him 20 yards from the shot. I thought i heard him crash thru some brush. Awesome buck for a small place in Kendall county. This was my first sit here this season. Donít have any cameras up. He is a 12 point.

Those dang lighted nocks have made me think high on my video replays (especially the stills in flight) as well and they ended up being good enough.
