If it had angle forward a touch instead of back I would have had a different outcome. I've been trying to kill a decent buck with my old T/C Hawken for years and have only managed a few does and yearling bucks. When this buck came in I had to shoot left handed (I'm right handed) and I had to do it rather fast or he would have been gone. I am definitely proud of him! I'm getting a European mount done and for many years to come when people ask I can tell them how I took him with the hawken with a patched round ball!
