My buddy and myself did the same thing,we saw what looked like 2 good sized does walking together around 40 yards away,we shot them in sync with his 270win and my 12ga slug,his went right down due to a lung shot,and while my slug went exactly where I aimed,I am fairly new to hunting(3 years in)and made a shot where I thought the heart was,unfortunatley it wasnt and It took both shoulders out and he ran,but did recover the deer with a headshot 15 minutes later.It seems like button bucks are less gamey tasting and even smell better field dressing that either a full grown buck or even a full grown doe.
