    Just pulled the cameras on a new piece of property here in PA... Extremely happy Got some goofy looking bucks and it seems to be genetics, at first I thought it had to be an injury but there are several with the strange rack.

    Be asking probably for the first time ever "do deer react negatively to human vomit?" :lol:

    So I'm on the fence on this guy. I've never gotten a bow buck. I've made two bad shots on my only 2 opportunities in about 6 years. Does haven't been a problem and I have passed on lots of smaller and younger bucks. So I can't say I wont take this guy if I get a good chance. Not sure tho. He's the best I have on camera so far.

    That's a shooter for many.

    Put the bad shots behind you, not easy to do but needed to progress forward.

    Don't draw too early, don't release too early. Practice a slow and steady draw with a steady pin and the rest falls into place.

    More times than not we rush a shot thinking it needs to be rushed. Hindsight tells us a simple "Meh" or a 3 second wait affords the time needed to make it hit true.

    Appreciate that, and I think I have put em behind me. First one was a chip shot and I hung up on the trigger pull, panicked, slapped at the release and hit him too far up and back. He lived thankfully. Second was last year and I have no freaking clue what happened. But...I guess I kind of want the first one to be a little special so I'm being patient. Damn that monkey keeps getting heavier to carry on my back. Plus you guys have been super helpful, and that means a lot to a struggling, passionate bow hunter in a yuge buck slump.

    Not at all. Lol. I guess some context may be needed...I'm actually after another buck that is older than this 8. I just don't have a pic of him this year, and I feel like this 8 could really blow up next year. Hence the hesitation I guess.

    I can understand that. Setting the bar high is a good thing, but letting the perfect prevent you from accepting the great isn't good. I don't really care about antlers, but I have been disciplining myself to not shoot those two and three year olds when all I really want is good venison. I won't hesitate to take a good four or five year old, and they carry a lot more backstraps than a two or three year old doe.

    I don't disagree with any of that, buddy.
