Default I'm back.

Well things in PA started pretty slow as the rut is just now starting. My son took a 6 pt and my buddy from Michigan took a 5 pt. For me things didn't go so well. I hit a very nice 8 pt in the shoulder and failed to penatrate into the vitals. I shot the buck at 5 yards from my ladder stand. I just made a poor shot no excuses. I don't know if a Muzzy would have done the job but the Rage 3 blade didn't. We did see the buck last night feeding in a field and had a limp but otherwise looked ok. I will try to finish the job in rifle season. The weather was warm and the rut is way behind this year, don't know why? I saw two nice 8 pt bucks and hopefully will encounter them in rifle season.
