Default Perfect shot this morning!

I went out hunting this morning, had only been there for about 45 minutes when right at first light, I hear a loud grunt, followed by a snort wheeze. (makes your hair stand on end) I look over to see a doe being followed by three bucks, one of them is an absolute toad. Typical 10 pt, 20+" wide. I stand up and get ready to shoot him. He finally steps into my shooting lane and I made a perfect 40 yard shot!




















On a deer that was 43 yards away...
Needless to say, he lives to see another day. Shot went 2-3 inches under his ribcage. He didnt spook, just looked around and walked off with the doe. Im hoping to see him again tonight. Im headed to another stand nearby in about an hour for the evening sit...round two, DING!
