so I got a chance to go out today, didn't think I could so that was exciting. I got up in the stand before daybreak, stayed for a bit, saw nothing. so I started back to my truck and spooked about 5 or 6 deer bedding in some very think shrubs. they were thrashing around a lot trying to get out so I thought, has to be some bucks in there. all the antlers must have been getting stuck. so I quickly grabbed my grunt call and started grunting, I actually heard one grunt back. next thing i knew i see a doe running one way and a buck going a different way, one still behind the shrubs and sounds from the other side of a hill I was next to. I slowly looked up on the hill just behind me and all I saw were antlers and a big head, he saw me first and ran. then i look around the hill and an 8 pointer was coming my way. I leaned back on my backpack and waited for him to give me a side shot. he stopped about 10 yards in front of me and looked right at me. I put my cross hairs on his lungs and took the shot. I heard a thud. my arrow stuck in a 2 inch tree right between me and him. he looked at me, turned and ran before I could get another arrow loaded up. I was dumbfounded and amazed.

I went home and checked my bow and the scope was off a little. The crazy part is every time I hit a deer with my bow, it jumps. when my arrow hit the tree this time, he didn't even flinch.
