Little 8 came through chasing a doe i mouth grunted stopping him with enough time to range and shoot at 55 yards high lung/spine shot dropped him where he stood. As he expired he let out one final death grunt I call it so I got out my extinguisher and grunted a few random grunts trying to hide the commotion of the first buck as it was still early in the evening. About 2-3 minutes later the big 10 came out of bedding area 125 meters away straight at me not stopping walking until he got 10 yards from the first buck that lay dead and stared. I ranged him at 65 yards but he would not turn broadside as he started stomping and snort wheezing I decided it was now or never taking a straight on shot he ran 80 yards with his aorta completely severed
