Ohio buck down

After working until 0100 I almost decided to sleep in. I was on stand around 0615. I was hunting a fresh scrape line that just appeared within the last couple days. Around 0730 I had 4 does feed underneath me. 25’ high, they were none the wiser and eventually fed off.
I knew if I saw a deer I had to be ready with bow in hand. This set was in a real tight pinch point. Around 0830 I heard some leaves rustling and caught movement. He was working a scrape about 50-60 yards in front of me. He ended up working his way down the trail and gave me a 24 yard broadside shot. At full draw I he wouldn’t give me a clear shot I needed. After giving me the clear shot I needed, he did a couple nose dives and ended up dying around 40 yards from the stand. Hes a main frame 10 with a kicker off his right G3 and G4.

Gotta love Sunday hunting! Sorry I had to. Ha
