self filmed 129" 10point

This was my first successful self filming hunt. I have had a camera in my tree the last 6 years that I have killed an archery buck and it finally worked out. Disclaimer, this is not a text book shot, but you will see that I was pretty much handcuffed. I knew that if this mature buck busted me, I would likely never see it again. I grabbed a single lung with my broadhead and it went 100 yards, crashing and getting back up the whole way.

Boy you threaded the needle on that baby! Great buck man. I enjoyed the video.

The sleep of a laborer is sweet, while the rich man tosses and turns, worried about his possessions.

Thanks guys. Like I said, the shot wasn't ideal, but a million things rushed through my head in that split second when he turned toward me like

... If he busts me I may not see him again,ever...New baby at home= not much time to hunt this year...I have made this shot successfully 4/4 times in the past...I'm so close (5 yards) that I'm bound to drill through whatever I hit...I already called off work the next day for an appointment if I need to leave him overnight...My biggest previous buck scored 117 and this would be a new best...

I showed this video to my friend who is a deer biologist and his first comment was "thats a pretty non-traditional shot" but then he said that he would have also taken it with a high probability of hitting the spine or a lung on either side of the spine.

Man, I got an adrenaline rush from that. Cool video, and great job.

That was a splitting hairs..especially when your arrow grazed that hanging branch! It was easier to see in the slow motion replay.. Congrats,were you going for the spine?
