Pa. archery season over for me.

Shot this 9 pt. this morning at 7:30. I couldn't resist the 11 inch brow on his rt. side. No monster but still a nice buck for here. Hoyt Maxxis 31 and Slick Trick mag. did the job.

Nice buck and he was very healthy as it doesn't look like he missed any meals. Congrats.

Great buck for Pennsylvania. I'm glad you took this animal with archery gear.

I saw 3 does, a spike buck, and a fawn but all were about 80 yards away. White oaks were dropping their acorns like crazy and these deer were happy to feed where they were. So it goes.

Nothing better than fresh meat in the frying pan. How far did He run after being arrowed? "Nice going there guy."_

My son-in-law arrowed a chubby doe on OCT 6 in Mifflin County. Fat is 1.5 inches thick at the rump area!
