Dan passed up monster in the intro?

Dan, whats with the clip in the intro where a huge buck walks under your stand and then you look up at the camera and shake you head? How come you did not shoot him?

I was going to start this very thread. He could have reached out and touched that deer too!

That was one of my favorite clips! So how big was that buck? It was hard to tell becuse it happened so fast.

That was a long time ago, and there was a much bigger buck showing him self...

I set my standards based on where I am hunting and what is available to hunt... On some public land I might settle for a 2 1/2 year old... On a piece of managed private a deer like that might get let go.
Andrae has footage of passing much bigger bucks. He has tapes where he passes on bonafied booners.

;) So what if the shot was 150 yards with my bow, I still passed! ;)

I meant more that I've passed bucks that were at the time bigger than what I've shot in hopes of what I knew was in that area. A.K.A. the buck we called Kong. And then Jarin shot him so I should've shot that big heavy 10!
