My 8 point buck

On Saturday, I went out to my stand before daylight, hung my lures and settled in.  When itwas light enough to see, I started using my estrus bleat call.  I worked it for about 45 minutes when I had 3 bucks come in from 3 different directions.  One was a small bodied spike, one was a slightly bigger bodied fork horn, and one was a nice bodied 8 point.  Actually, I never counted the points because all I saw was the nice body.  I waited for him to get into range and shot and missed.  It seems he had just started to challenge the 2 smallerbucks.  They ran up and over a hill and he ran up the hill to my left and stopped.  I had to sit back to get a clear shot and then boom, I shot again.  He ran around the slope nd back up the hill and then he dropped.  He actually dropped about 25 yards from where I shot him.  I called my boyfriend and told him I had one down.  He said he would be there shortly.  I took a few pictures and then settled into field dressing.  When my boyfriend came up to me, I was almost done.  He took one look and his eyes bugged out.  He said it was a nice buck.  He also told me that it weighed between 160-170 pounds which is quite a respectable deer for this area.  Meat in the freezer and a nice rack which my boyfriend is going to mount the antlers for me.
