Hey guys. I shot the deer my dad and I have been looking at for the past 2 years. He's a nice cull 8 point to take. When we get him on camera, he's always with other bucks. He came in alone this morning. I studied the deer for about 15 minutes just to make sure it was him. Started working on my breathing technique. Cross hairs right on shoulder. And bang! He drops like a rock under the feeder. I keep looking at him and he's just laying there licking his wound. I felt terrible! So I put another one in him. His head drops. You would think he would be dead after that shot. Nope. He is still moving. (Barely) and at this point. I just prayed that he would take a dirt nap very soon. I drove back to camp and here I am. I am going to give him a few hours more than normal to die. I feel terrible about this. I will get pictures up as soon as I can.

Give him some time. If you hit him in the chest he'll be dead quick enough.

Congrats. Show pics when you can. How come you didn't shoot again.


It's not how you fall, It's how you get up.

Smart kid , for observing & placing a 2nd shot! Good job.
Have read countless stories here where 'one shot heros' watch their buck go down, then 'totally shocked' when their buck jumps up 5min later & run off never to be seen again.
yours will be right there waiting for you to collect!

Welcome to the forums son. We have been watching this deer for 3 years and he disappears when the season begins. He has good mass and tall heavy brow tines. I am sitting in my stand as I type, here is a recent live picture.

Its not fun to see them suffer. Im sorry to hear that. It happens though and when it does i dont watch. I always hope for instant kill but rarely get it.

Hope it turns out for the best. I know it doesn't help now, but if they are moving, put another in him. Sometimes they just don't give up.

Good luck and keep us updated up

I will explain the shot, if the deer is not standing the body is not visible from the deer stand. The area is elevated on the other side of a draw.

Congrats! I don't particularly like the "killing/dying" aspect of it either. You did right to take another shot.

Glad you took another shot at him. I keep shooting till I know they are not moving anymore if I am unsure of my first shot.
