Here is my 2011 mule deer buck. I have been concentrating on hunting deer the 1st two weekends that I was able to hunt and decided that I better fill my tag or have tag soup all winter long! Went up into a low country basin where I have had luck seeing deer and elk in the past. When I arrived at the place I liked to glass I noticed two muzzy hunters higher up on the ridge and contemplated going straight to where I had seen elk before or slipping around in the oakbrush/openings to see if I could find a deer. With the guys bugling and cow calling like crazy I decided the latter and headed back around the hill to look into another little valley. I had gone no more than a few yards when I jumped a buck out of the brush. He didn't go far and as I snuck around the oak brush I caught a glimpse of him about 60 yards up the hill feeding. As I went around a brush pile this lil guy was staring right at me. I held froze my position trying not to blow him out in chances of getting the bigger buck. HE actually came down the hill closer to me trying to see what I was. I finally couldn't hold still any longer and began to move closer to him and around some oak brush hoping he had a bigger buddy with him. As I came around the oak brush I said to myself if he will let me draw I will shoot him. Well he was quartering towards me almost straight on at 15 yards and I knew on a deer I wouldn't have trouble blowing through the front shoulder. I settled the 20 yard pin as close to the brush he was standing next to and let er fly! Complete pass through, think my arrow may still be flying as I couldn't find it! He went about 200 yards because of the shot but had good blood for the 1st 100 and great blood there after.
The new AlphaMax worked wonders and that is the 1st arrow I lost out of that dozen shooting all summer.

It's best to get those little dumb ones out of the gene pool anyways wink.gif . Congrats on the buck buddy. Any animal with a bow is still a great accomplishment in my eyes. It's just so much fun wink.gif . That quartered to you shot can be deadly as i've seen on antelope. Obviously I'm never taking it on elk sized game but it's decent on the little guys.
