I shot my 10 point buck at 40 yards with a 20 gauge shotgun sabot. In one side of the chest, through the heart and out the other side. The deer did a 180degree spin and ran as far as he could (about 30 yards) before piling up.

I took three this year: Deer 1 was doe with my compound bow at about 6 yards, made a poor shot that I'm not proud of...got in too much of a hurry and took the shot while she was quartering towards me. Luckily for me the arrow came in high just below the spine and angled down out her belly. Only went about 30 yards before tipping over. Deer 2 was a spike, also with a bow, and also from only about 6 yards and this time I'm proud to say i made a perfect shot. He was slightly quartering away and i put it behind his shoulder and angled it out in front of his far shoulder. Deer 3 was an 8 point on opening day of rifle season. He was broadside at about 60-70 yards walking across this overgrown field i was watching, hit him slightly farther back then I would have liked but took out the back of his lungs and liver.

The buck i shot this year was 28 yards when i shot him and for some reason i thought he was 20 yards and i shot him LOW. To this day i have no idea why i thought he was 20 yards away. But anyway i shot him low and nicked one lung gave him plenty of time and finally found him 6 hours later.
