Glad to see you scored that buck - especially this late in the season.  You've been working that spot hard and putting a lot of thought into which buck was the most desirable.  I think you made a great decision.  Does that mean the other similar buck is only 3.5 y/o?  Great genetics going on there!  One hell of a spot to have to yourself.

I'm surprised that Barnes slug made it out the other side with no enlargement of the exit wound.  Perhaps just because he was so close or just a clean hit that missed a lot of muscle mass?  :dunno:

Is that Evergreen Huckleberry or Red Huckleberry up in your area?

Congrats on another great kill.

FNF the Barnes crushed two ribs, I think maybe my velocity close to 2100fps muzzle was to much to allow the bullet to work properly, maybe I should have been using closer to 80-90 grains powder instead of 120 grains. It's all new to me. A bow hunter with a recent repaired shoulder.
Very good genetics.

Tell us about your stand setup and placement.   Trying to figure out this style.
