2010 Buck
« 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.  
 
 

 

 
The broadhead used, regardless of how sharp, is nowhere as important as being able to place it in the correct spot.

I've heard it said that Christianity is a crutch.  To me, it's a walking stick to use on the path of life.
