You have a 125 class buck at 18 yards looking away. There is also a 150 class buck at around 40 yards with a twig that "could" be in the way about half-way there. Shooting light is fading fast, it's now or never, what do you do?


(ps I'm board)

Hope you work out that boardom.[8D]

I SMOKE the 125, especially on film, and not even look back....that would be 30+" bigger than my previous archery buck.

Then return the next week to get the cameraman that 140 with roles reversed.

The 125" is still (at least) 15" bigger than anything I've ever seen in my woods.

He's also on the outer edge of what I feel comfortable shooting (range).

First buck anywhere near that size that gives me a shot opportunity.....is gonna get shot........at.

125, 105.5, 107.7 all get shot if they are within range.

The smaller one Is close to my minimum (130") but they would both walk unless the smaller one was an old deer and wasn't going to amount to much In the future. The 150 Incher would definitely get the pass being that's way out of range for me.

Two bucks, a 125" in slam dunk range and a 140" on the outside edge of my range. What do I do?

I wake up, realize it was just a dream, turn over and go back to sleep.

I'd probably think about that twiglong enough to loseshooting light on the 150", and in the mean time the 125" would have wondered off. But they're both still out there.
