As I watched the younger, aggressive deer leave the area, this buck showed out of nowhere. He was showing no rutting signs, simply moving from feed to bedding and nursing his wound. I shot him at 8 yards. The shot was high because the angle was steep. The arrow buried in the opposite shoulder and the deer went about 75 yards before he piled up. He's a main frame 8-point with eight additional kickers or sixteen points total. As a mainframe eight, he won't score real high (missing G4s hurts him), but the additional kickers and mass get him to the mid-160s. Although we've been through a three year drought, this buck weighed 210 pounds before we dressed him and aside from the ankle appeared in extremely good health. His tarsal glands were just starting to get color and scent to them."
