A Facebook friend that I follow, Patrick Montgomery, said that his hunt yesterday went pretty crazy for him in the high country. He was wanting to kill the deer that was probably 170ish. The two were bedded up in some thick brush and he couldn't really tell who was who. With orders to bring home meat, he felt like he didn't really care. He said he figured he had a 50/50 chance and shot the vitals he could get with an arrow to. It had been a while since he shot one with his bow and he felt good.
He had glassed a tall boy earlier but it was not him and was his little 4/4 buddy laying in some thick spruce trees when he shot.
A closer look at the tall boy!
The deer then tumbled about 500 ft. down a mountain side with an arrow sticking out of him and this is how it ended up.
