Just one of those things that happen in the deer woods

As you know there is a fine line when you're high. I've told this before but a buddy shot an 8 pt in Ohio one evening. We tracked him for a while till blood ran out. I killed it 2 days later. He was running does like a mad man. My buds shot was perfect other than 3" high. It happens. Maybe he will be fine.

Man I've seen it too with those high shots. Buddy had a 150" 8 point in Illinois get away due to a high shot that was perfect left to right. Same guy killed a 145" 10 point 2 years later running a doe in Illinois. He came by me a little too far, he shot him 10 min later. 10 inches of a carbon arrow and a shuttle T lock still between his back straps and shoulder blades from an unlucky hunter a week or so earlier. He was running, grunting, chasing, etc. they can keep going with a slightly low shot too. I killed a big 8 in 2007 that a guy had shot and missed his heart low by 2" the week before I shot him. Again, chasing a doe like his head was on fire and his ass was catching These bastards can survive stuff that would make a human curl up and die on the spot, especially when you're slinging something at them that relies on severing blood vessels connected to vital organs versus a rifle bullet that will destroy tissue and organs through hydrostatic shock and shrapnel

These bucks are always tough to kill but during the rut they are turbo charged for sure. I'm hoping he made it and comes back to his core area looking for a date. If I could get another chance at this deer it would be even more special now. Lots of deer were on the move this am while I was looking for the buck

Just going to climb back on the horse and keep trying. This buck had moved all the 2.5s out f the area the past few days. Crazy how they can do that

My bad Kevin. I was looking at the date wrong. I guess that is why he was looking to be in good shape. LOL Duh !!!

Unreal. No idea how exit wound is that far forward on a quartering to me shot at a 40 degree angle from a 18 ft perch at 8 yds. Only thing I can figure is expandable head defected off some bone? Looking back to the 4 th the buck I saw in the thicket at 10 am that morning must have been him!

It's raining down acorns right there. Pretty sure he is locked down with a doe today. Got pics of a doe this am and I saw part of a tine in the background. I will be there tomorrow and hopefully don't have to hunt all day to close this book
