    I’d pass… The photo you posted does not represent the scenario you laid out…

    The photo shot I would take if he were about 20″ larger… :D

    Going by the picture you posted theres plenty of vital open even though hes quartering slightly.

    He’d be dead so quick the guide would be happy about not having to drag him out in the dark :^O :^O :^O :^O :^O

    The picture isn’t indicative of the shot you described (though I appreciate what you were trying to do). A 35-yard shot at a deer quartering towards you is not a good bet. Hunting by ambush is a game of patience. Better to wait. He’s not likely to spend another 1/2 hour on a single scrape.

    Now if you were on the ground and not in a tent-blind, you could test your skills by moving to a more advantagous position without being detected. If your brief stalk were successful and your arrow flew true, you’d have something. :thumbup

    Forgot to tell you, I said NO

    As soon as I draw my tag I have a hunt waiting for me in Iowa and if that situation presents itself… I pass. Not because of the shot angle or anything else, simply because I have deer like that here in PA and he’s not what I am going to Iowa for. Even if it was the last day of the hunt I put down a nice chunk of change on I pass…… gives me a reason to go back, or at the very least, I still had one heck of an experience hunting in another state [=}=]
