It was about 2pm and I had just gotten back up in my stand after enjoying a lite lunch (Beef sticks, chips and of course a Dr.Pepper) when I saw a couple of does in the woods about 50 yards from me. I was about to take one of the does when I saw movement just behind them a few more yards back. I knew it was a buck but I wasn't sure how big. After waiting a few minutes the does led him in a little closer and the only shot I was going to get was a shot into the trees. I took the shot and through my scope I could see him drop where he stood. The slug had passed through a tree about 6" in diameter and continued towards the buck nicking 3 other trees before striking the deer just below the right ear. A clean kill. Thanks Hornady! I'm a customer for life!
