    Today was the day.This morning at about 0655 hrs. I spotted this buck feeding on acorns.The deer was approx. 34 yards away but was screened by some light dead branches.After a few minutes the buck stepped clear of the obstuction and offered me a perfect quatering away shot,and the arrow was on its way.After the hit the buck mule kicked and ran off,falling down twice within my sight before disappearing over the ridge.The blood trail was sparse at times but good enough.After about 50 yards I saw the deer piled up at the bottom of the ridge that it had ran towards.The hit was lower than I had wanted but it still took the top of the hart and the left lung.The arrow went through both shoulder plates and exited the deer;a complete pass through.My equipment list is as follows:pearson Steath bow,70 lbs. at 29",Carbon Express 250 maxima hunter arrows with 3 Blazer vanes(total arrow weight 366 grains),100 grain slick trick broadhead,Viper predator hunter sight,Specialty Archery 8" camo stabilizer and a Scott rhino release.Arrow speed is 291 fps.The buck will score P&Y but I'm not sure yet just how high.I'm guessing in the 130's
