Story: I shot this nice 10 pointer. On the morning of Thanksgiving. I had just got in my stand and day break. I heard a buck grunt. Then in just a few minutes I seen about 5 does running across a big facing. I got my gun up and looked at them. Then I seen the buck, there was no way I could shoot off handed with them running, plus being about 120 yards away it was impossible. Then the lead doe turned and came down in front of me about80 yards. So I got my gun up and looked at the other 4 does come the same way. Then I seen the buck, but I needed him to stop in order to get a shot off. He stop right in the opening, shooting off handed hanging out of my treedstand as far as I could. I shot and missed him, I quickly through up again and shot again knocking him to the ground and he didn't move. Just one day after I killed a 9 pointer the day before.
