Great pictures! Congrats on the buck!
Thanks! I was pretty excited. We have been trying to take mostly does the last few years, and letting all the yearlings and small bucks go. It seems like it may have paid off a little.
This was my first running shot at a buck. I saw the doe run out into the highline at a full sprint, and shortly after saw the buck bounding after her. It took me a split second to turn my scope power down and find him in the sights and by that time he was at the perfect broadside position. I shot a little high and a little far back, got him in the spine and quickly thereafter finished him off in the neck. Need to try and shoot on the bottom of the bound and follow through a little more, but like my partners said, "You got him." He didn't suffer any more than a good double lung shot.
