Red face First buck with my crossbow

I got this little 8pt last Friday evening with my Ravin R20. It is my first year hunting with a crossbow. Not my first archery buck, I have hunted with a compound for many years. Buck ran 30 yrds and crashed within sight. Shooting Thorn HPX broadheads, complete pass through.
