I was finally able to connect on a state land buck this morning. I was in my stand for 45 minutes before he came strolling by. I have about 35 hours on stand as of this morning and this is the very first deer I have seen this season.

The shot was 11 yards so it was a gimmie. I was satisfied with the shot placement.

The broadhead I used was a 125g Slick Trick and the arrow broke the offside leg when it exited as the deer was quartering away. The arrow broke and I did not recover the broadhead. Here are a couple of pics of the blood trail. It was easy to follow. Surprisingly he went 80 yards.

Congrats. A bloodtrail a blind man could follow. Check that broken bone for the broadhead.

Real nice Buck, Congratulations!
35 hours on stand and this what you got?? Well worth it if you ask me!

I myself have about the same amount of hours on stand and haven't seen any yet. I didn't get out today but plan on a Monday hunt.

Congrats again.

Congrats. A bloodtrail a blind man could follow. Check that broken bone for the broadhead.

The broadhead definitely exited. The exit clearly shows that all four blades cut going out. It is on the ground there somewhere. Next time I am there I will look a little harder for it. I am interested in how it held up to the leg bone.

When I was retrieving him two nice fat ladies used the same trail so I will definitely hunt that stand again. :icon_e_smile:

Thanks for all the kind replies.
