Title: 2010 Buck
Post by: Walt Francis on November 11, 2010, 12:11:00 AM
This is my 2010 buck (we only get one in Montana).  He was chasing a doe and came by my stand at fifteen yards, I missed shooting over his back.  Two minutes later he came back following the same doe at ten yards and I double lunged him.  It was an easy recovery, he went a total fifty yards after being hit, out thirty and then came back twenty, falling twenty yards from my stand.  He was a fighter.  On the left side: the G-2 was completely busted off,  was missing an inch on the G-3, and half inch on the G-4.  On the right side the G-4 was missing a couple of inches.  He had been skewered behind the right eye, behind the right jaw, and on both sides of the neck.  

I used Max, my 58# osage selfbow, 29 1/2" AD Trad Lites, and 220 grain four blade Muzzy Phantoms.
