Default You Call The Shots II

Weapon: .45 Muzzeloader w/ Scope
Range:75 yards
Conditions: Sunny and Clear
Winds: Wind 10-14 mph to South
The Scoop: This dominant buck just hit your mock scrape. Everything is set up but there is a doe breaking down wind of you and may snort any second. He caught you off guard and you still ne to raise your gun. Do you risk getting busted or hope the doe doesn't wind you? Do you take the shot?

Slowly make your move. He's preoccupied.

Do you take the shot? Are you serious..? What reason would you have not to shoot.. if you're gun is already raised pull the trigger.. who cares if a doe is going to snort.. if you pull the trigger first, game over..

I'd take my time raising to fire and then nail him.

As Long as you got the proper cover scent you shouldn't have to worry moch about her snorting you out. Slowly raise the gun. line him up and fire.

O I'd shoot, he is preoccupied and if the doe snorts he'll put his head down. Im guessing.
