On my first evening in the stand, I had this nice 10-point feeding in the food plot with a few does about 80 yards away. I grunted at him to try to get his attention and he looked up, but went back to feeding. So I got a little more aggressive with the grunt call and he headed right for me. He walked right under my stand and provided a perfect 15-yard quartering away shot, but I talked myself out of shooting him. I think he's about a 135" deer, and I may regret this decision later, but I feel confident that I will see bigger deer on this trip. I did get several minutes of good video and a few still images of him as well.
So, what would you have done? Would you have shot him or let him pass?
