    I got to my stand today at 1603 hrs.The weather was perfect;no wind and 45 degrees.At 1622 I started hearing deer coming towards my stand from directly in front of me.Within minutes I had two button bucks and two does standing in front of me.While I was trying to figure which was the biggest of the two does to shoot,I heard crashing coming from the same direction that these deer had just come from.Suddenly in comes a big fat doe that instantly scattered the other deer that were standing around.As this was going on I turned to see 4 more deer coming in from behind me.These deer stopped in their tracks the minute the big doe scattered off the other deer.I couldn't tell what they were,but I didn't see any decent sized bone on their noggins so they were mostly likely more does or 1 1/2 year old bucks(which I won't shoot).I then turned my attention back to the big doe that was now standing 10 yards away,facing my stand.As the doe started to turn broadside,I drew back my bow and put the green pin tight behind the left shoulder and squeezed off the shot.At the shot the deer mule kicked and ran off directly down hill from my stand.Seconds later I heard it crash.I got down and found a nice blood trail that started about 15 yards from the hit and maintained a decent flow right to where the deer tipped over,which was 110 yards from my stand.Upon inspecting the hit I found that the broadhead cut a rib on the entrance side and clipped the shoulder plate on the exit side.I shot the deer with my Pearson Steath,(68 # at 29")I used a CX Maxima Hunter shaft tipped with a 100 grain Wasp Boss Bullet broadhead guided by 3"Trueflight shield cut feathers.Total arrow weight is 366 grains.Speed is 298 fps.The deer dressed out at 126 lbs.

    I was expecting you to say the big doe was actually a buck that had already lost his antlers.
