The Good: arrowed this 5 pter Halloween afternoon, shot was 41 yds , he went right down, caught all of it on video. Dressed weight was 135lbs. The Bad: this was the first deer to come within 60 yds and only the 2nd buck I had seen after a lot of hours spent on stands. Disappointing for sure ! The Ugly: the right side of his rack looked like he was hit by a sledgehammer, never saw such a twisted, knarly rack..truly ugly ! Lol For the equipment guys. Bow was Bow tech RPM 360 at 67 lbs at 28 inches with a Wasp Jak Hammer 3 blade 100 grains...Tom

You can't eat the horns anyway.

Congrats on a clean kill.

Congrats. I noticed NY has a lot of funky racked bucks and I was curious if NY has so many deer that incense is common in the herds? Just a thought.

This is picture of his rack, odd for left side to be normal and right side so deformed ? Tom

He probably was injured on his left side. Maybe hit by a car? Did you skin him out yet?

No went right to butcher next morning, stopped doing my own 10 yrs ago, didn't notice any injury nor did he act abnormally in any way..go figure...Tom
