    Well folks no monster by any means but, the good Lord smiled on me this afternoon. I shot this 4 pointer at 62 yards. I thought I hit record button just before the shot but, the camera took a still picture. There were two together so I took the smaller one. One to break the ice and two BACKSTRAPS!

    P.S. the still picture is actually a double punch on the record button I'll try to upload the 3 sec video...lol!

    62 yards, WOW
    Man to smoke one at that yardage is sweet. Congrats on a job well done. Looks like you probably are really feeling the fever now. At that yardage was their any string jumping?

    Lots of Practice!
    Thanks man it takes lots of practice. I have the 3 or 4 second video, just before the shot so you can see he was out there!

    Top right corner!

    @ Huntinbucks....he never knew it was coming. The wind was blowing to me and when I shot his head was down behind the beans! I always say if the conditions are right....and they were! I hit him on the top of the shoulder a little forward. He made it 60 yards if that!

    Are you not worried about wasting a buck tag on something that small?

    Congrats
    Congrats Viper! Thats a heck of a shot! I wish I had a bean field to sit over...there are two huge fields on both sides of the property I hunt but there is so much land its hard to figure out where they're crossing into my land. I had a 4 pointer on my camera yesterday morning and he is still in velvet but I 'll probably let him walk...Congratulations again!

    Hey Donion....lol man! I thought most people knew I was a meat hunter first and foremost. The only thing that makes it better is I have the discretion of 4 buck tags living in the Eastern Zone. Trust me the other buck tags will be used conservatively....but homie has got back straps right now...lol!

    East zone sucks
    Lmbo i didn't know that.I wish we had 4 tags because i have to pass up some in the early season thinking something else might be lurking out there.Did 2 times last year and i got stuck with a buck tag at the end of season lol.

    High front shoulder!
    I don't know if he tried to jump the string or not but I found a new approach to the heart shot. Head down high front shoulder slightly quartering towards......I found the rest of my arrow!

    G5 Montec CS.....don't leave home without it! Bottom line bad shot (front shoulder) but I got lucky!

    Hey GT.....I agree with you. 4 tags is a bit much down here but, it's not an issue of killing all the bucks. We are choking on deer in the East. I guess it's because of all the swamps and Agriculture. The Ag grows them and the swamps hide them. If you hunt down here you better have a GPS or you might not find your way out for a week!

    I don't know if it's to many bucks here or what but, the bucks never get to monster class like the Central Zone with the exception North Hampton county and counties more north of here! Maybe it's no minerals here!

    Nice
    Viper congrats on the Buck/back straps. I know it was not intending to be for the wall but in fact for the freezer. at least in three weeks you can bring down some back straps for the grill. Great shooting bro----
