Story: "This deer and a big ten point showed up with about fifteen minutes of legal shooting time left. I blew my grunt call to get them closer, but they decided to start sparing. I tried to get a shot on the ten several times, but he was in too much cover. When I looked at my watch, I had two minutes left of legal shooting time so I decided to take the eight while I could (bird in the hand thing). Dropped him in his tracks with Ol' Smokey. The ten stayed around for about fifteen more minutes trying to nudge the eight into getting up before he walked away. Now it's time to wait for the ten."
