Not trying to take away from your post but that buck looks a lot like one I’ve been getting pics of. I’d love a chance at this one. Congrats again on a very unique buck.

What about the bases? Seems like an older deer.

As for your experince with your arrow, perhaps take a look at the theories being discussed by "The Ranch Fairy," a guy named Troy Fowler who's a dedicated student of Dr Ed Asby. His Youtube channel is excellent, and I'm thinking about moving my setup that direction. You may already know about this and have opinions. In that case, just disregard. But since everything he does is to maximize penetration, it came to mind when I read your story.

However, with your start to the season it's clear you don't need any help from me or anyone else!
Beams were R - 20" and L - 20.5",, dont know on bases, but he has crazy mass all the way up.. I definitely have considered a heavier arrow, or something to help with KE.. Ill check that out!

To shrink the photos, you need to do it before you upload. If you are sending from your phone, you can use the built-in photo editor. Just use the "edit" menu and look for the "resize" feature. If you have a percentage option, choose 35% or so and you should be fine. Save the pic in the new size and upload that. If you use a PC, then you can open the file in Microsoft Paint and do the same thing. Resize it smaller, save it, and upload the edited/resized file.

Does that make sense?
You are the man,,, thank you sir!
