    This big boy crossed a creek and was making it across a small field and was heading for cover when I saw him. He was limping bad with each step and I decided immediately to blow my tag on him. He never turned his head towards me and I thought he was just a 2-3 yr old and definitely not a shooter. This time there was no ground shrink as he just grew the closer I got. His front hoof was messed up and swollen badly, looked like it was really painful. Not my biggest but certainly the widest I have taken at 22 4/8 inside.

    I was on the situation as you. I seen a wounded buck opening morning of gun season . I would of let that buck pass but he was wounded pretty bad unfortunally I hit small tree limb and missed the buck. Before I could get another round on the chamber he go on other property which it belongs to Chipper Jones retired Atlanta Braves.
