Clean miss on this guy during our gun season. Replayed the shot and everything over and over, had a feeling I either gut shot, just a bad shot or I just plain missed and was glad to see him on my trail camera. Until next year!!

I'm thinking he's upper 140s to low end 150s. 4 year old

That is one big rack with huge G2s and G3s. I'm glad you didn't wound him to the point where he went off and died somewhere never to be found. Are you in southern IN? I was born and raised in Lawrence right outside of Fort Benjamin Harrison and moved up to MI in 1962 when I was 15. We used to duck hunt down at Camp Atterbury down south of Bloomington.

Lots of people miss huge bucks because they are looking at the rack instead of the cross hairs.

He is a good one. Imagine how much bigger he will be next year.
