    Been hunting 9 straight days so I decided Thursday afternoon to give my main farm a rest before gun. Went to hunt another farm i had hunted a few times during those 9 days that I knew a big wide8 was at. Had not hunted this stand this year yet. Saw a couple does then at about 425 heard some deep grunts and some chasing across the ditch below me. I was hoping they would cross where they normally do and ease in front of me at about 20yds. Here came one doe then another then here he came. Lead doe was standing where I could shoot and the buck a few feet behind her working a scrape with no shot. He twisted around like he knew something wasn’t right and started to leave. I came to full draw and bleated with my mouth. He stopped right where I needed at about 25yds. I buried the arrow behind the shoulder. He ran off hard till I couldn’t hear him. Backed out and came back next morning. 850yds later thru some nasty stuff and found him laying with the arrow still hanging in there. Slicktrick had cut the bottom of his heart and stopped in other shoulder. Tough old buck. 21 inside,10 1/4& 9 3/4 g2s,185lbs dressed. Very happy and thankful I got him.

    Can’t tell much from the pic besides that it’s a damn good deer. Got any more of you holding him up? Congrats

    Nice deer real nice congrats. Sounded like a good hunt. It’s amazing how far they can go when they are dead and don’t know it.

    Surprised it didn’t break. It was almost out. I twisted and pulled hard to finally pull it out. My lighted nock was still on after 15hrs too.

    Wow... glad you recovered him. Hard to imagine a buck could travel almost 1/2 mile with a heart shot. Tough animals!
