Well said HM, I'd also like to add that As soon as I spot a deer the first thing i'm always thinking is shot placement, if a shot doesn't present itself then it's always best to give that deer a Pass that day.
Secondly, if you spot what you think is a "Trophy" buck and that's what prompts your shot on that deer, you're probably hunting for the wrong reasons.
If Antlers are what you're after, just Go to Ebay, Antlers are readily available there and it's safer buying them than it is to just throw lead all over the place hoping for a kill shot.
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.
Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the outcome of the vote.
