Where did the shot end up hitting?  Great buck and congrats. Way to push on, when many  would have given up

Awesome deer, Smokepole - and using archery gear, nonetheless.  Way to fight through the pain and trust your better half for the win!

Thanks you guys.  I got the deer skinned yesterday and quartered.  We're expecting below zero weather so I'm gonna bone him out before he freezes solid.  He wasn't a tank, maybe 200 lbs. or so on the hoof.  Still some fat left on him, but I can see he has whittled away at his reserves.  His neck sure is huge. 

The shot wasn't what I wanted it to be.  I tried for an easy double lung shot, but when the buck lurched the arrow stuck him right through both hams near the femoral artery.  The arrow stayed in, so bleeding was slowed down and things just took a while.  I was using old school xx75 camo hunters with muzzy 4 fixed blades. 

My favorite part today.  Boning out the meat and weighing it up.  Gonna make cube steaks and burger the rest in a day or two.   :EAT:

Arrows can sure be deadly if they get near major arteries!  Good work on tracking and recovery- glad you and your wife could tag-team it through the deep snow and rough terrain.  I hope your back is feeling better, too.
