Default Missed a nice one this morning with pictures

Well, this guy was broadside 15 yards away this morning. I was drawn back but didn't have a clear shot through the trees. Heart was covered by a 2" sappling. Very hard not to take a shot at him but I didnt. All I needed was him to take 2 more steps forward and the shot was clear. He stopped shy and looked right at me before giving me a shot. It is very disappointing, have never had an opportunity at a deer like this in my 15 years of hunting. Anyone have any idea what this might score?

That's a nice looking buck. I would guess 120'ish.

Do not know what he would score, but, I would grab a hold of the antlers and grin from ear to ear for sure!

I don't blame you for being dissapointed, he is a very nice buck. He might go 130. Good luck next time.
