    I was out yesterday for an all day sit. Had my target buck I call "Jr." come down the trail 32 yards in front of me. He only gave me a quartering to shot. I wasn't certain about the shot and 5 mins after I shot him it started to rain hard with thunderstorms that was going to wash all the blood away. I shot him at 2:40pm yesterday and decided to wait until this morning to go look. He only ran about 80 yards. It turned out to be a bit of heart and 1 lung. I couldn't of asked for a better shot when it comes to a quartering to shot.

    Congrats on the buck. I'd never take a 32 yard quartering to shot on a deer.

    I shoot my bow once a week all year long (every Tuesday). I practice out to 60 yards and shoot softball size groups at 60 yards. So a 32 yard shot is not far to me. I will shoot on an animal out to 40 tops. Honestly I was worried about the quartering to shot though....

    Nice buck. Lucky to get him. If you did not knick the heart, you get one lung and stand a very good chance of losing him. There is a good article on the home page of this site right now.

    Why You Shouldn’t Take a Quartering-To Shot
