My son is behind the gun, if he wakes up. Currently he is sacked out in the chair waiting on 1st light. My dad was gracious enough to give us the buck from our management plan, so we are after a mature deer or a big spike thatís been hoarding the corn.

Thanks. I couldn’t tell if he hit the deer at the shot or not and I never heard a crash. We gave it 30 mins and headed down. Carson is shooting a .223 and has learned to take high shoulder shots. When we hit the scene, I found lung material on both sides so I knew it was a good hit and we had a decent blood trail for a .223. But that deer made it 100+ yds before he collapsed, nearly made it to the fence line.

I’d like the shot to be a couple inches higher and a tad more forward, but it was dead center in the pump room and jellied both lungs.
