Finally, some meat in the freezer
« on: November 10, 2010, 08:16:19 pm »
Hunting over a mountain laurel thicket.  Lots of deer today (14 total) and took this doe.  Had a huge 8 ptr come in after she was on the ground but he saw her dead and backed out.

I spined her and she went down then tried to crawl off with her front legs so I took a shot and hit her in the gut.  Not good but she did slide towards me and I put another arrow in her heart to end it.

  Way to go, Jimmy. I bet that'll taste better than ground hog.

 If you have to pull the trigger, is it really archery?

Good job on the doe.
Tell us about the bow you are using.  Looks to be a boo backed R/D and not one of your self bows.

That is a bow Ric Anderson made for me while I was in Afghanistan.  It's osage and cocobolo.  It's a beauty and shoots like a dream.  I really wanted to kill a deer with it this season so I'm a happy camper now.  It has a groundhog, deer and about a dozen squirrels on it's belt now  :D
