That’s a good buck. Is he chasing a doe or running from bullets.

Muzzy or Rifle.....he is a dead dear at 75 yards.  Bow, which I hunt with primarily.....no way I could take the shot.  Great buck though. 

I voted, I hope he stops.   :tup:

No shot at this point with any weapon type. Dandy buck.

 :yeah:  The only way I would shoot at a running animal is if he was already wounded and I was trying to put it down.

Open sight = dead deer
:yeah:
I was thinking exactly this originally.  But no way I'm packing an open sighted rifle in that open country, I'm not nearly as good as some at getting that close :chuckle:

It's pretty incredible what a guy can do with a firearm he's intimately familiar with.  Respect to those who put in the time and rounds downrange to know what they and their equipment are capable of.
