Default You Call The Shots III

Weapon:Compound Bow
Range:30 yards
Conditions: Dusk; light snow
Winds: WindLight Wind in your face
The Scoop: It is late bow season and this buck Just came up from his bedding area toget somefood. You only have one day left in the season. He should present a perfect 30 yard shot. You've been practicing all summer and it's time. Do you wait for another to come by tomorrow?

Not sure.. that is a beautiful deer.. he looks a bit young. you have to think what if there is a guy sitting over the hill from me? what would he do? This deer is one of those "borderline shooters".... I would be satisfied with a picture and let him go.

Take him!
For sure...take him. Conditions look good to me.

However, It would take a few seconds to make my mind up that he WAS a shooter, but after those few...POW

I would wait for him to turn a little more so his near front leg is completely out of the way...then I'd take him. I've practiced long and hard with my bow....I know I can make the shot count.

Let him walk. He looks young With one more day left in the season he will probly make until next year. He will be a better buck then.
