I wouldn't take the shot, too risky an angle and he's looking at you. My way of thinking is:

Alert deer + tough angle = midnight in the swamp

I would never take that shot. Deer is alerted and is going to move. When he moves a bad angle gets way worse. If you do hit him it most likely isn't going to kill him quickly.

Alrighty Shot #2

 -

I know its quatering to a bit, but it's a coyote, and just about any arrow is going to punch through the little bugger, and , well it's a coyote. If you got this close, you'd better make the most of the opportunity (which I didn't on this dog [Smile] And this is assuming he'll be in the same place when the arrow gets there LOL!

i don't like that angle very much since hes actully standing straight away, but since he turned to look at the does over my shoulder from me he apears to be quartering wich creats an inside quartering shot,( very tight ) and im not sure i can clear that barbwire without raising off my seat a little, if he does jump the string he's gonna drop and roll away from me, so i better aim just a bit lower than the the spot you picked. (if he's still there after i thought that much about it...........hmmmmmm.....he looks kinda sick anyway i guess i'l let him go).

I'd definitely pass on the buck. Don't like the angle or the fact that he looks pretty ready to bolt at the first sound. I'd take the shot on the coyote right where you have the dot. When he hit the next open hole.

I'd take the shot on the coyote, right
where you have your dot cause if he's moveing you will still be in the lungs.

Bowhunting is a passion, not an obsession. Its just hard for my wife to tell the difference sometimes.

I would wait on the buck and the coyote. The red dot is right on both, but I don't like the angle on the buck; too easy to get ka-ka on you. That's one skinny blacktail. California? The coyote is moving and is about to be perfect.

Pat yep Cali, during the rut. With no bucks in that state you can understand why that poor guy is so skinny. That's a lot of ground and a lot of does to cover! LOL!!

I wouldn't shoot in either situation. Too much chance of something going wrong in both cases.

I enjoy being a traditional archer!!

The yote has to get to that last opening(about 3 steps more) and then by by.

I would look just a little lower on the shoulder of that yote. I want his shoulder broke and the arrow through his heart. Quartering to on a thin boned animal is ok in my book, especially a coyote or say a fox. Not a deer or bigger for sure!

Ok, I may get flamed but I would let the yote take two steps and make a head shot. A heavy arrow and grizzly broadhead will pin him to the ground. a miss will be just that a clean miss. If I hit him back it is a spine or neck shot. Any hit I make will kill him. Waiting for the two steps puts him in a clear shooting lane. At that range the coyote will soon be a quiver.
