    Depends strictly on the body language of the deer. If he’s “Fat, Dumb & Happy” I would let him walk all the way in. :thumbup

    I agree but picked the last who would not wait until he’s behind a tree. If there is an obvious run that leads him past a tree No brainer.

    Of course it’s a no-brainer…..but that wasn’t there when I made my initial post ;) . It was added, later.

    I don’t wait for a certain yardage, I wait for the perfect moment.

    I take the first “Good” shot the deer will give me.I try to draw when the deer passes behind brush or a tree or when it’s head is down or turned the other way.never underestimate thier peripheral vision [-X

    Situational terrain. And certainly one of the most critical decisions in the hunt.

    When he’s in range,
    and when he ain’t looking.

    Wait until he hits the 20 yard marker…and or looking the other way or head behind a tree! Just depends on the situation.

    Usually it’s the deer that will dictate when you draw back.

    It’s all up to the deer. I’m “reading” him/her continuously. When he’s within my range, and he says, “Now!” … I bust him.
