I'm glad to see you got closure on that buck and can rest easy, Matty. My set up is similar to yours, but I'm shooting at 52# with Easton AXIS FMJ 400's tipped with cut on contact NAP Hellrazors. I believe my shoulder issues are from (or at least helped by) shooting heavy bows over the years. Many people (mostly archery dealers) have suggested going to the cross bow. I'll go to the camera dealers first, lol.

Thanks guys. As I mentioned in the earlier post (that I deleted while I was depressed)....I passed this buck once in October. He came by me chasing a doe, but I didn't think he was a shooter so he walked by at about 16 yards. Never second guessed it for a second.

 

However, with the season winding down and having not seen a "shooter" since summer, I saw this guy again the other day, looked him over again as he came walking down the trail and decided to take him and use a buck tag for a change. 

 

Being able to recover him after he made it into the neighborhood was a nice Christmas present for me. 

 

Merry Christmas everyone!

Matty not beating you up but most of this stories start with a quartering shot. It is tough to let them walk at times.
I spent most of my money on hunting and fishing. The rest I just wasted.

I strongly disagree, quartering away is a great shot, I've always done very well with quartering away. Sometimes I prefer it over broadside. More room for error and actually passes through more vital organs.

 

Quartering towards and I'd agree with you, that's a terrible choice with a bow. But I like quartering away and it's a very acceptable shot in the world of bowhunting. 

 

The side in the picture is not the side of entry.

 

The entry was on the other side and quartering into the vitals from just behind the ribs, but it didn't get up through the guts and liver, which has never happened to me before. 

 

It was EXACTLY the same shot I took on this doe in this video. (except the buck was facing the other way) And you can see she only goes about 20 yards and dies in about 18 seconds. 

 

 

Skip to about 4:20 to see the shot.

I have to agree with Matty.  Quartering away is a great shot with the bow.
