« on: October 19, 2013, 09:08:55 pm »
Disclaimer: im almost embarrassed and ashamed to show  :laugh:  Can Y'all believe this is the first time ive taken an animals life with one of my own weapons?  :-[   its been a loooooong time coming  ::)  8)

 Went roaming the woods today...started to sprinkle but continued on at a very slow walk n stalk....had one squirelly present a shot but I missed...walked slowly another 20 yards and spotted another 20 yards away(different squirell tho)...drew back n let her fly...saw the arrow do something funny like I grazed a tree on the way and didn't see where it went and what had happened...or where the squirell went...I didn't move thinking I missed and was trying to see any movement of where he I took a couple steps slowly towards the scene when I noticed some leaves moving n rustling,but I couldn't see anything...I thought that must be him,and that's odd hes not running over to the scene and sure enough I drilled him...he twitched a couple more seconds and it was say the least I was ecstatic....that was more exciting than killing a deer with a gun... ;D got him home,skinned,and cleaned....yup im eating tree rat in a few days  ;D ... good for one meal  ;D  ;D  :laugh: those sons of guns are hard to hit with a bow,cus they rarely ever stop moving  8) maybe this will get me out of my hunting drought/funk...the last 3 years haven't been good to me...

Nice kill, squirrel slayer ;)

I imagine it would be next to impossible to nail one of those twitchy buggers, nice job.

Way to go BH!  Its about time some of the squirrels got thumped.

  Now if you can hit a squirrel, you can hit a deer. 
I started out with nothin' and I still got most of it left

Nice fat tree rat Chris, I'm surprised thats your first. Shooting with you several times at the elm hall weekend and you sure didn't miss the 10 or 12 ring often on those targets, of course they don't jump like those squirrels can. Come to think of it neither do deer so your more than good on the next deer that offers you a chance. Go get em'.
I ain't broke but I'm badly bent.

Lol Cam....I knew someone was gonna say that  :laugh:

Adam I did thump him good,but not his arse....I nailed him right on the shoulder blade n turned his lungs to mush ;) 

Clint for some reason I can't hit a deer..I've shot at a couple doozy bucks in the past n I ended up missing... :-[

Its fun for sure Ed...I've been going out 3-4 times in the last week determined to drill one...

They sure are hard to hit duck...

You know it pearly....its hard to grab a different bow when its time to hit the woods for real ..its been my go to for 11 months now,n nothing has come along n replaced it yet ;)

BB I'm OK on the range,but in the woods its a whole different story  ::)

I hope so Greg ;)

Way to go, Chris. I wish our rats were that big. I think all of those little boogers got built in radar, never so an animal that can duck out of the way so fast, at the last second.
