Doe comes running I see a jogger running down the street, Assume the Jogger has pushed her I grab my bow. I go to reach for the Video Camera, unsure if she is stomping at me or at scar face Decoy. I Hear a grunt. I turn look as I hear another grunt. Spot a big body 40 yards out. I assume he is going to walk the edge of the creek to stay with her. I move the camera to that shot. Start telling myself if he is a shooter. Draw behind that tree, Going to be quartering at me more then likely, start running Aim points but He spotted Scar Face Decoy, came running out and put on a show. I’M like oh boy he left a hot doe for a fight. I know right away he is one on the hit list, turns his head slightly, its Split G2’s. I look at him the and the placement of the decoy, the Brushpile between them and I decided to take aim for the pocket between chest and shoulder rather then let him get in the brush pile and come out nose to nose with the decoy. I ended up clipping the shoulder but got the job done. Got 1 lung and arteries in the shoulder and neck Rage Chisel tip did its job. Not a ideal shot I know but one I was confident in and was effective…
