Yesterday evening I had a few extra hours to hunt. Decided to run out to the lease and just sit in a box blind over feeder. Wasnít really expecting to see much but wind was just right and I havenít sat in a few weeks so I just wanted to get out. Feeder went off and wasnít long and this 10 point came out straight for feeder. I havenít seen this buck live all season but was on my hit list. Grabbed the bow, drew back, made a good shot, he dropped in his tracks, NO spine shot. He was still moving a tad so I sent another one and that one would finish him off. He weighed 140lbs dressed, 138 4/8Ē, 37.5 ranch score. Very good deer, low fence, no protein, and many memories made.

Don't guess I've ever seen a buck drop from a bow shot not to the spine. Interesting.

Iím not sure what all MLD properties use it but I know of 4 different MLD properties that use it. But I think they all have different target numbers. Like ours is a ranch score of 30 or better. Some are lower. Not sure the point in it but we use it.
