My 2011 8-point buck

After about 40hrs in the stand so far this season I harvested this 8-point at 5:00pm on October 22nd. Double lunged him at 22yds with my Barnett C5 Wildcat. He ran about 75yds and piled up. I've gotta say im very impressed with my new Grim Reaper X-Bow broadheads. Absolutely destroyed his lungs and left a very nice blood trail. His right side is a little busted up, but im very happy with him. Hes the second buck i've ever taken and definatly the biggest. I estimated him to be around 2.5-3 yrs old and about 170-175lbs live weight. Time to get back out there and fill my doe tag.
