Thanks guys, I greatly appreciate it. Not bad for my first archery buck. Strangely enough, I stayed really calm the whole time. I had about 8-10 deer all around me within 15 yds. My stand sat facing the west and the wind was out of the north-northwest. The deer were coming from the north heading south into some woods for bedding down. At first, 2 young bucks came in from my right (from north) and one was a young 6 point and the other a spike. They continued south until they turned and about-faced and went back to towards the north on me. It's then I noticed the little guy was watching something behind me and to my right (my 5 o'clock location). It was two does and two fawns. They came right up to my tree within 5 yds and I was going to take one of these does, but then I saw coming from the North at my 2 o'clock, a couple bigger bucks. One had his side broke off and was a 3 point on that side, and the other was an 8 pt, probably a 2 1/2 year old. Then in the back was my broken ear buck. I had to wait for them to all file past me, and luckily the wind died and it was still. eventually I waited until they all had their heads down or were looking away, and I drew back.... but right below me and about 2 yds from my stand was that broken off buck--- he saw me. I had the pin on the 10 pt and I had to shoot quickly. From the time I drew back, till I released was probably 5 seconds. MUCH faster than I would've liked, but made a good shot and got to watch him fall- WHICH IS ALWAYS GOOD! Said a prayer thanking God for the opportunity and had him in my hands within 20 min of the hunt!
AWESOME experience.

Are u getting it mounted? That ear makes it very special. I have a mulie that had a split ear and the taxi was able to mount it with the split, it gives it character.
Congratulations on a very good character filled buck!!!

Unfortunately no, i'm not getting it mounted. If I had my way I'd get every buck I take mounted. Unfortunately, my wife and I live on teacher's salaries, which isn't alot, and are trying to raise a family. I think I have her talked into getting one mounted every other year--(that is IF i get one every year). So basically, my buck from last year is getting mounted... not this year :o(
Feel free to donate funds for Tator to get his deer mounted!!! haha

A high quality photo enlarged to poster size in a nice frame would be cool too. Thats my plan when I harvest a nice buck. I would love to mount one but the cost is above my range - family first.

Congrats on the buck!!
