    not live from the stand but wanted to share. last night I got setup around 330. did a rattle and grunt sequence around 4 and again at 430. seen a broke up buck 60 yards out and heading the wrong way. about 515 I caught movement to the west and did a couple small grunts. that caught his attention! rattled lightly and I could hear him going up and down the creek bank looking for a way to cross. i got aggressive with my rattling and he went south to the crossing. He crossed south of me and started heading north on the field edge. He was on a steady trot when he got to my small opening i did the brrr. He stopped on a dime. I settled my 40 yard pin on his chest and everything performed like it should. Went 45 yards and heard him crash within seconds. So PUMPED! 5 year quest to get a good buck on the ground with my bow. Only 2nd buck ive shot

    Settled in on the river crossing. What a view. Just need a wayward traveler to come by.

    6:35 was arrow release. Hit a touch high, damn bulky clothing.

    Arrow stayed in but was pumping blood like Mt. Kilauea

    Impact

    Hook around and run. Did not hear him crash, but think he passed out quietly

    Bear with me guys, not pulling a Mike. At the truck, gonna unload the sled and warm up the 4 wheeler.

    Not sure if an 8 or big 10, reminded me a lot of my 2017 10.

    Please do nit let there be ground shrinkage. I suck at field judging.
