Default Nice Illinois Buck

I was in my stand withabout an hour left to huntwhen this fella walked up from the down wind side of me straight under my stand then started to quarter away to my right. He stopped about 15yds out giving me a nice shot. I put the pin just behind his ribs on the right side and the arrow came out just behind his left side front leg. he didn't go more than 50yds and fell over. I'm stoked to say the least, he has an 8-pointmain frame with 3 kickers makinghim an 11-point.

All and all a great afternoon hunt, my sister-in-law killed a doe and a small buck (her first bow kills!!)and my brother-in-law shot a nice doe. I was seeing deer 5min after getting into my stand. I saw a few that I was tempted to shoot but I knew there were a few big fellas hanging around and since it's still early here in Illinois I let a few walk.

Here are a few pics thanks for looking.
