Post big MN 8 point

after 10 years of bowhunting i finally got my first buck with my bow!!!!!! i had already packed it in for the day i was walking down the walking path when a doe jump from about ten yards away and stopped at about 45 yards so i knent to the ground set my stand and backpack down and knocked an arrow... then i saw movement from the grove of trees she came from so i waited to shoot ( at first i thought another doe would come out and it would just be an easier shot) but to my suprise it was this beast he stopped at 35ish yards and looked at me i thought he was gunna run when i drew but i had to do something or he was gunna leave any ways so i drew on him put my 30 yard pin in the middle of his chest and let the RAGE fly i hit him low in the chest but right in the middle of his heart!!! he went 60 yards and piled up!!! he weighed 215 dressed out and had a 22 inch inside spread!!!! it was by far the best hunt ive had and its the most impressive buck ive shot/seen alive!!!


but i got two questions i know its tough to tell age without seeing it alive but about how old does anybody think it is? and about how much do you think it scores? any help would be great

thanks!

Awesome buck, sometimes you just get lucky, I'd rather be lucky than good most days.

Im sorry that is a high risk shot i would not have taken it if it was facing me he was broadside when i took the shot it went right behind his front shoulder and hit the opposite shoulder and straight though the heart and the bottom of the lungs... sorry for the mix up
