Sorry got busy when I got here. In the stand about 6 feeder goes off at 7, decided to park in a different spot and walk about 600-700 yds in. Here is target buck, he has been regular every feed.

Shot a monster 8, shot was low and hit elbow. Think it's busted and he's in rough country so shouldn't travel far. Waiting for a return call from matt.

Need some prayers!

Waiting for matt, hit was low around elbow not much not much penetration but was a slick trick and it hit hard.
He is on a mountain in rough terrain so I don't think he will travel far.

Man long day, just got in bed, took jock about 15min to find him and bay him. Best part he made it all the way down to the bottom of the hill right by the road, didn't have to drag him off the side if the mountain. I busted front right leg right at the elbow and I guess when he headed down the side if the mountain he dislocated the left ankle and he was basically walking on bone. Hate that the old guy had to suffer but it ended well.

Good night!
