14 pt Booner Down

Post by BPowell » Sat Nov 08, 2014 5:07 pm

Scored right at 180. I have a ton of history with this deer. In 2012 as a 3 yr old, I passed this same buck several times as he was about a 135" buck then. Last year (2013) is when he really started to get my attention as he blew up into about a 160" deer. At this point I decided that I was either going to kill this deer or I wasn't going to kill one at all. I hunted him hard all season and actually passed up a couple of 150s waiting on this certain buck. I did finally get a chance to kill him in December but ended up missing. This year he started showing up in July and this time he was a sure enough monster. I was able to narrow down his core area pretty easily through trail camera pictures and was finally able to seal the deal. I hit him high but the angle of the shot put the arrow right through the lungs on the other side. He didn't run 50 yards and crashed right there. The Rage Hypo left a heck of a blood trail.

Thanks fellas. He was 23 yards and walking when I shot him. Hit him high but it worked out ok because of the steep angle.
