    Nothing to be ashamed of Ill. Hard to shoot a high scoring 8 point. I saw 5 bucks last night, all chasing does. Moving in on them tonite.

    Shot a big one tonight! 13-14 points real heavy. IPad won't allow me to upload pics. Will try to get some up tomorrow. Not sure when I'll get the scoring done. I should be able to get it done between processor and taxidermist. Guessing it's 160ish!

    Here are some pics finally! I took some more with a better camera at home with my bow in them but by then the deer was looking a little stiff and ragged. I'm having my photographer buddy clear them up when he gets a chance.

    The Story:

    I got to my stand right after work at about 3:15. I'm sitting on a ridge overlooking a bedding area that I know the bucks cruise a lot during the rut. I had several small bucks in the area during my mornig sit with a little bit of chasing just out of view from where I am. It was overcast with a 1-3 mph wind out of the north. I was texting back and forth with my boss about some work stuff for a few minutes right when I got into my stand. I wrapped that up and was ready to sit for the afternoon. I scanned the area once and then started over when at the bottom of the ravine I saw movement and a glimpse of white rack! Then I saw body and said to myself "that's a big deer!" I got my bino's up and saw he was real big but didn't bother to try and count points. I knew I wanted to shoot him if he came close. The buck continued down the ravine and was getting farther away. I wanted to try and do something to get him closer but was hesitant because I have never had any luck calling deer in, so I took out my grunt tube and gave him just a small grunt. That was enough for him and he turned around and started to make his way up the hill right at me. He got about 50 yards away and I drew my bow, then he was 35 yards and paused behind some trees. I just needed to settle in to my shot form and relax. I guess I held for about a minute and he finally continued on. He got to about 18 yards broadside at a slow walk and I let the arrow fly. My Noc-turnal lite up and I could see it hit a little back but was still a great shot getting both lungs with a total pass through. The buck didn't know what happened, did a quick run about 30 yards and stopped. He stood there and I could see his back end start to wobble. He went down and flopped over. A few last chokes of breath and he was done. I couldn't believe it!

    This is definately the biggest deer with a bow I have ever taken and depending on the final offical score maybe the biggest!
