    10 yard shot at 8:30AM Saturday Oct 24.
    Buck came in to soe bleat can call.
    Elite GTO, Gold Tip arrows, 100 gr Slick Trick Grizztrick broadheads.

    This buck is a neat, satisfying kill because I have 17 pictures of him from my game camera since July. I have seen his rack progress throught the year. Unique antler shape, haven't seen too many palmated antlers like this before.

    For 4 straight years I have been passing up shots at small bucks. Then the bucks go on other properties around me and get shot, so I am being stupid. Guys around me shoot anything which I have no problem with at all. Just figured out that I can't QDM my small place while others around me don't. I haven't seen a decent buck in the past 6 years.
    I'm very happy with this buck.

    Great bow kill!!!!! In your postion i wouldn't of passed him up either but think what he would of looked like as a 5 year old. Did you have very good blood. I have been using slick tricks for about 3 years now, and i always find my deer but the blood sucks till about 30 yards, then its like a red carpet.

    yeah, this buck looks like he had some nice genetics. In 5 years he would have been a dandy.
    I did have a GREAT! blood trail, but it was probably due to location moreso than the broadhead as I cut the artery along the spine.

    yeah it looked like the shot was alittle high, for some reason i always shoot high but most of the time i take out the opposite lung. I have only had one deer that really bleed out. like i said i have found all my deer so i wont be switching. I love slick tricks.

    my neighbors are all 60-70 years old
    they take what they can and don't care about big antlers
    Oh well, it's supposed to be fun and they are having fun

    i have the same problem, i have taken about 20 deer with my bow, about 6 bucks and the rest does. i shoot about 50 arrows aday but when it comes to taking a deer i never remember taking the shoot. I dont really rush myself, i guess its just all the adrenaline going. When im in the stand i always tell myself....dont rush take your time but it never helps
