Decided to go out yesterday before the storm arrived, the deer were moving early and had 2 doe and 4 bucks show up. Shot this buck at 6 pm and got him gutted right before the rains hit. I guess I should have waited until he moved from in front of the feeder. LOL

He went about 40 yards and I watched him drop. No damage but will have to put something over the hole to keep wasps out! The blood splatter was pretty cool though.
