    Nice Buck! congratulations!! Also kudos to you for passing on that shot to start with. especially with a huge deer in front of you, most would.have show because who knows when you would see them ever again. You were ethical and thats fantastic! good shot and congratulations again!

    Incredible buck man. Hard work paying off! Congrats!

    @Owen yeah there was multiple reasons for not taking a quartered to shot in this case. 1. Im willing to bet we never have a deer reach that size again and had no intentions of flinging a hail Mary.. 2. I was shooting a 415 gr arrow with a swhacker mechanical that I was testing, not the best setup for that.. 3. I wounded an elk in September not waiting for an ideal shot and I still haven't recovered.

  • Damn, look at that mass! Congratulations on a great hunt and great buck.
