I actually missed this deer as an 8 point opening morning of the 2014 bow season. I had too many deer on me and had to rush the shot; I got busted drawing the bow and ended up shooting under this deer. One year and a week later, he wasn't so lucky! He had grown into a main frame nine point with a sticker off of the left G2 and is about two inches wider and probably gained about 25 pounds in body weight (weighing in at 192 pounds live weight this year). It goes to show that it's good to miss sometimes, even though it may hurt at the present moment! It puts a new meaning to the phrase 'let em' go, let em' grow.'
