Well lots of little bucks and two 120"ish 8's was a fun sit. I watched two buck fights and lots of rubs being made.

I will try and figure out how to post some videos of the buck fights. Started off as light sparing and escalated to dirt flying.

I think I hit the offside shoulder. No pass through and arrow bounced as he ran off. Snuck out and going to give him some time. Better safe than sorry.

There was a loud thwack at the shot and about half the arrow in him. I could see blood from the stand in the binos. Looked good.

Always a good sign when you can see blood from the stand.

Found him. He went 60 yards and died. Some ground shrinkage but overall I'm happy with him.

128 3/8" not as bad as I thought he'd score when I walked up on him. Now I have a cooler full of corn fed venison and a nice little rack for the wall.

Isn't there a 140 min? Just curious how they enforce that? It'd be hard for me to not shoot that deer!

There is a 140" minimum. I wasn't hunting with Hadley Creek. I was scouting my fathers property that he has leased to them. Other wise I'd be paying a $1000 non trophy fee. I hunted on his land so as not to interfere with paying hunters. I didn't think it would be right to do so.

Had I known he was this small I'd of let him walk. I was hunting an older 130-140" 8 point that was decided he needed to go. I thought this buck was him. Either way no one is upset and I'm happy with him after hunting hard since the season opener. Spent a few hunts soaked to the bone in the rain.

This is the deer I thought he was.
I was given the green light on him. Unfortunately it wasn't him I shot.
