Went out this morning in the blizzard-snow/rain mix. Figured the bucks should be moving. At 0800, a doe came along feeding on acorns. She passed within 10 yds of me, I was tempted, but did'nt shoot. At 0830, I caught a movement about 60 yds and saw a nice racked buck walking along the trail the doe had come in on. He had his nose right to the ground. I got ready and expected him to follow the exact same trail in- he did til he got about 20 yds from me then turned and started up the hill towards me and was gonna pass by me. I opted to shoot & hit him a bit back further than I wanted, but after a breif tracking job, I found him piled up. 7 pointer w/16" inside spread. Bambi burgers now!!!! :D :D

Nice Buck Carl!! Thanks Treerat for helping with the pics!

Hey Carl, were you actually aiming at the rear of that Buck? Looks like a perfect shot to me so I figure you aimed the "Wrong Way!" :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanx all!!! Yeah Gary, I fished so hard this season, I must have been in "Wrong Way" mode- I darned near hit him in the wrongway. I'd like to say it COULD have been a bit of the "fever", but ........ Besides Gary, I got tired of cutting bowstrings with my broadheads putting 'em on the "wrong way"!!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:
P.S.- Good luck to all going out in NY tomorrow & be safe!!!!
