About 6-7 years ago I shot a buck with a somewhat marginal shot. He stumbled and ran right past my stand. I nocked another arrow and let it rip, hitting the buck in the spine. He dropped and crawled about 30 yards away and "died" as he rested in a little man made hole. I waited a bit, got down, and then walked up to the sucker and poked him with an arrow. He turned his antlers and swung them at the darn arrow! I was like holy crap! I finished him after that with another arrow. What a tough buck.
