A little back story on this buck. When I got in my stand this morning before daylight he was eating corn and rice bran in my food plot. I had seen a high rack 5pt a few days ago and I didn't want to shoot him. I had my scope on 16 trying to see horns and when I could see he was big enough to shoot I put it behind his shoulder and shot him. I heard the bullet hit but it was too early to tell his reaction. I got down when it was light enough to see and couldn't find blood or anything so I thought I missed. I started thinking about the shot and I thought he was further than I looked plus I saw crows out in the cut over cutting up in one spot. At 9 I got down and instead of being further he was actually closer than I thought only ran maybe 40yds.
BTW the picture makes him look bigger than he is. 14-15" wide but he is tall.
