Default My Best Buck With Bow

I'll try to keep it short. Last Saturday morning my best friend Trevor had 8 bucks come into his stand the best one being a 9 pointer, which he could have shot several times, he decided to hold off since it was early in the season. I saw a few small bucks. Knowing I had never taken a buck, (the 9 pointer) of that quality with my bow, (he has taken two in the 130 class) he decided I should hunt his stand and he would hunt mine. He got no argument from me.

Well Sunday morning found me in "his" stand. The stand is a small cluster of oak trees loaded with acorns surrounded by several aces of thick cedars. Well at daylight I had a spike, a 5 point and an 8 point
under my stand, 30 minutes latter a high rack 7 point came in I was temted to try and take him but I decide to wait on the 9 point. Good decision! 10 minutes latter he came RUNNING in to the oak trees and pushed the other bucks to the edges. I decided to let everything settle down before trying to take him. Well all of the sudden he looked up the hill lowered his head and boom just like that backed into the cedars no shot. Well I slowly turned my head and almost fell out on my stand there was an 8 point coming in that easily was in the high 140,s low 150's. At 20 yards he lowered his head to go under a cedar limb and as it came up he was loking right into my eyes well he didnt like what he saw because without takeing his eyes off me, he backed right back under the limb and eased up the hill about 40 yards i could see the rack turning on the knoll for 15 mintues but he wouldnt come back in. I heard a noise and saw the 9 point comeing back I decided that was the buck i was hunting and i was goind to try to take him when he got under the oak trees in the clearing I was already at full draw. He was at a slight angle when i shot the Snyper caught him a little high and back it angled and came out a little further on the exit side he went about 70-80 yards The Snyper worked awesome. I'm TRYING to post pictures

Awesome report, congradulations. Could you elaborate on the snyper entrance and exit wounds and the blood trail?
