What was the first buck like, bigger? Those big ones seem to go a lot farther with major hits. One I double lunged, I swear went way over 200yds. Always keep telling myself to try to figure the actual distance. But hard to do in such a brushy area. Good job. I keep wondering why, no pass through at 15yds. What are your thoughts on that. A number of years ago, I shot a big one at a measuered distance of 33yds with a pass through. But that was when fixed blades were all there was. It was a Bear stainless, sharpened my way. In fact thats the deer in my now avatar that went over 200yds.
Ohio farms wrote:JPH, I have to ask, how far did you have to drag that beast? I shot a 234 lb. buck last year and only had to drag it maybe 90 yards...downhill. If I didn't have a friend with me I would still be dragging it. Just swinging him into the back of a truck was an adventure. Those 200+ deer pose all types of different problems. Hope to have those problems again this year (:
