Story: "My brother called me on the radio to come and get him. Before I did I decided to walk to the edge of a thicket and grunt a couple of times. I started back towards my brother when this dude pops out ready to fight! I got down on one knee and popped him through his vitals and he ran about 150 yards and just stood there. I shot at him again and he was about 250 yards and I hit him in the neck. He fell down and started moving his head around. He got up and I saw that he was bleeding from his neck. He then ran about 300 yards and tried to jump a fence and got half way over and fell with his legs still on the fence. After a couple of minutes he got up and I was thinking, what the crap, he was bleeding from the neck and the vitals! He ran another 100 yards and I heard a gun shot. I went and found the other hunter and he said he missed him. I told him that I hit him twice. We looked for him and he was about 10 yards behind me. I didnt want to let this one get a way! Why are some bucks so hard to take down?"
