I am an archery hunter more so than a rifle hunter. I hunt with a rifle to extend my season but have only ever killed 2 deer with a rifle....the other 13 or so have been with a bow and arrrow, or a muzzleloader. All of these are whitetail taken from the same stand on my parents property. 2006 6 point, shot this little guy at 9 yard the arrow blew through his chest 1" above his heart, he fell less then 30 yards from my tree stand. 2006 8 point, 7 yards shot took him through the throat because his heart/lungs were covered by a maple tree and he was fixing to bolt, only went 250 yards before tipping over. 2005 10 point, 22 yards hit him in the neck and dropped right on the spot, this one got a shoulder mount done. I have others but dont seem to have pictures of them on this computer.
