On Thursday morning, at quarter to 8, this was the first deer that walked into bow range--and I'm absolutely ecstatic to have taken him. I have no problem whatsoever with QDM, in principal, where practical. I've let plenty of bucks walk. Last November, I passed a 140-class 8 pointer in Iowa. But east-central New York ain't Iowa--especially the farm I hunt. I can't tell you how much work and how many skunks have gone into this one little deer. I'm pumped about him, and anyone who doesn't like it can…, well, you know.
