Hitm just a bit back . Any further back and that'd be a miss. Wonder if that was intentional placement? Congrats to him on being lucky tho and a fine deer.

Not sure that I would have gutted him and left him there for pictures in the morning on public land. Not sure of the specifics though on how far back he was hunting or help getting him out or anything like that, but its hard enough leaving one overnight when you got to give it some time let alone doing it when its down and gutted. On the shot, stuff happens, I wont judge that other than it was a bad shot the ended up lucky.

The ol Hamblaster worked.

He said he hit right where he was aiming. I call BS on that. Right behind the last rib is a better spot to hit at that angle.

Have known a few people over the years that think all you have to do is get an arrow into to them anywhere. Things do happen and bad hit do occur but I see no need to intentionally take or make a bad shot.

Just scrolled quick to the shot and looked like a nice quartering away shot, so shot selection wasn't bad, just didn't hit the right spot. Ham shots actually overwhelmingly work out most of the time. If I could miss the vitals and hit one thing it would be the hams.

greg simon says in the video he says he hit where he was aiming, which I'm gonna say is a lie, and a stupid one at that. Vitals were exposed so who in their right mind hits the far side ham when you could take out heart/lungs. Only issue I have with the video then is a blatant lie.

Texas heart shot, femoral artery, not quite the aorta but just as deadly. I didn't listen to any dialog, could care less, enjoyed seeing the deer drop, within sight of the cameraman.

as soon as he said he overslept and needed an alarm clock to wake-up, i knew i wouldn't like him.

Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good. But to get lucky, and then claim that shot was your plan???? Not sure about this guy. Sound's like he's lying IMO. Glad he got the deer.

Good guy from what I know, but I too think he told a fib there. I seriously doubt he was aiming at the butt hole. He and his partner kill a bunch of critters and put a bunch of time into doing it. No frills.

I love his channel and what he puts out. If you watch his other stuff, he is really a good hunter. I think they are some of the best when it comes to hunting videos on public. He is always honest and real. I was just surprised he said he aimed there on purpose. That deer is a horse though.

His partner has killed a few really big deer this year
