    I had him at 505 but the wind scared me too much, was blowing 20mph. So I got to 180 and let it fly. The wind helped me crawl up closer due to it be soooo loud. I wish I had a beter story but the fact is I dint feel comfortable dopping a full value 20 mph wind. He was 25 inches wide and a typical light horn CRP deer from this area. sorry for the crappy shadow in the pictue.
