    I hunted all day Sat., Sun., and Mon., and was tired and restless come Monday afternoon. I saw 21 deer on Saturday, 6 on Sunday, and 1 on Monday. The winds sure slowed down their movement considerably. The only deer within bow range was the Monday afternoon deer and he is dead now.

    About 3:40pm Monday afternoon I did a little blind grunting with the Vector. At 3:45 this 8-pointer came from upwind and trotted right to my stand not 5 yards out. He was facing me straight on and I had already pulled my bow back when I noticed him coming in. As soon as he stopped he looked right up at me with those eyes that said "OH crud". The only shot I had was straight on. As you can see in the pic I hit right below his white patch, all I could do was aim for the jugular.:shrug: and :praying: He went about 30 yards off and I watched him cough, spit, and spew blood a few minutes and he then went down a little ditch to his final resting place:trophy:

    I had to wait for my other two hunting buddies, who were in the same general area, before I could retrieve him. I waited until dark and went to them. We got the deer out about 8:00 because of the long drag (took deer to locker rather than field clean it as usual).

    My cell phone went dead, didn't have a camera, and the only pic I got was from the back of the truck this morning.:mad2:

    Sorry if it doesn't meet your standards as far as pics go, but it's all you're gonna get under the circumstances.:)

    Looks like he's sticking his tongue out at you tempting you to shoot him again.

    Nice buck, COngrats:eek::

    That's the same thing Rat told me. I didn't pull out the rage for fear of dropping him without pulling back the string.
