Default Cherry Springs 10 pt

I watched this deer for 15 minutes and drew back several times.
He went to my feeder and I actually got a shot.. well I didnít see the feeder leg was in the way and my arrow struck the feeder leg.. the biggest buck I have seen ran but stopped at 45 yard standing broadside.. I knocked another arrow and quickly pulled had him on 40 yard pin a let fly... he was found about 125 yards from where hit.

Wow! Long shot on a great deer! Congrats. My second bow buck was very similar. I let an arrow fly at 42yrds. Felt like 100yrds.

Man what a great deer and experience. It's amazing how a feeder leg...or a strand of barb wire...can cover the entire vitals of a buck!
