    I just passed up the biggest buck i have ever seen in bow range. Looked to be a 130-140. He hung out for 5-10 minutes underneath my stand and then hit a scrape. It was really tough watching him walk away. Im starting to feel a little remorse. He will be a great buck if he makes it to next year. It was an awesome hunt!

    You'll never get a 150" if you keep filling your tags with 110's, 120's or 130's. I hope he grows bigger next year and you get a shot at him. Good luck. :claphands:

    Sounds like you are looking for something bigger and older....if so, you made the right call. :eek::

    Careful......I haven't shot a buck since 2006 because of the "passing disease".
