    shot this 8 pt 10-16-13, about 30 mins before dark a nice 6 pt came out in bean field 75 yds from my stand noticed he kept looking back towards woods and several minutes later the 8 pt stepped out and starting eating beans. i watched them both about 10 mins and when the 8 pt turned broadside i shot 1 time and he ran to my right with the 6 pt along side him. i shot 3 more times and the 8 pt went down in the beans about 150 yds away. not sure if he was dead i eased towards where i last saw him. the nice 6 stood there close by til i got close and then he ran off. when i found the 8 pt wasn't sure if he was dead or not the way he was laying but upon getting closer and bumping him seen he was. my shot was a little far back in the rib cage with the 1 st shot hitting him and 1 of the other 3 shots passing thru his left beam. pure luck it didn't break the left side off took about half of the beam out on the exit side. anyway good hunt and think i'll do a euro mount on this 1.been seeing alotta small bucks with good potential. taking next 3 weeks off and gonna hit'em hard.

    Nice.
    Congratulations and glad you didn't break that rack off. I often wonder how many nice bucks get their racks knocked off with buck shot. Tripp Todds 178 a few years ago almost lost his rack from buck shot but, thank God it was ok because it was a great buck. Good luck the next 3 weeks.

    Dang close there! You can fill that one in I bet with puddy and stain it and still have a great Euro. I have a mount with a 3 blade arrow cut and another one with bullet hole that show but, hey.....that's how I remember them going down.
