First-light Posted November 8, 2022 Share Posted November 8, 2022 This morning was great. Had two bucks come in around 8 and a few doe. About 9 4 doe come running into my swail about 75 yards away. There were 3 bucks chasing. one doe went left all other deer went right. They drifted off and I look up the swail and a huge bodied 8 pt is coming down. He locks onto the doe and trots after her. She heads right for me. Passes about 7-10 yards from stand buck does the same thing. My shot: Slight quarter away, I was 20 feet off the ground, buck was 7-10 yards. Hit him high in shoulder. Found broken arrow. I got 7 inches of penetration. Bright Blood on arrow. Looke for 5 minutes about 20 yards further found nothing. I backed out and will go back early afternoon. Funny thing the buck did was to run off about 50 yards and turned left did a half circle and ran back towards me but 50-60 yards in my brush. Lost sight of him. Would love some input on arrow placement and thought on hitting vitals. Thanks gang, Burt FL Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
