NICE man, very nice. As for the near miss, been there. It's sickening isn't it? Two years ago I was invited to hunt on family property of one of the officers I work with. They have something like 1000 acres in Newton county MO. They told me about a big buck they had been seeing for over 4 years, but nobody had ever gotten close for a shot. Only seeing him at night with the headlights. I scouted it for a few days, found a good spot in the corner of a field with ridges on two sides. Stand was set up 15 yards into the timber along a fence and I also hung a scent/scrape dripper within easy bow range. FIRST morning out, 10 minutes in the stand. I grunted a few times and bam, there he was. He came in with a 6 point and and a nice eight point. He was either a 10 or 11, I couldn't really tell and didn't want to concentrate on the antlers. He jumped the fence and walked straight to the stand tree. At 15 yards I drew, he stopped at an easy 8-9 yards. I had to bend down and lean back to clear some limbs. I let it fly and hit a small sapling about 18 inches high and not even a 1/4 inch thick. That's all it took. He jumped straight up in the air and cleared the fence and just stood there, maybe 5 minutes then walked away. The broadhead shattered on the rocks. I shaved his shoulder of about a 2 inch x 1/4 inch piece of hide, with some fat. Nothing at all lethal. Not even close to being a lethal wound, not even a drop of blood. He was easily a 170 inch deer. I have yet to see him again.
