Title: First deer with recurve
Post by: Rathbuck on December 12, 2011, 03:38:00 PM
Oct. 1st, 2011-

35th deer with a bow overall, but one of the funnest.  Northern MI doe with a old Bear Stag Hunter that my grandfather gave to me a few years back.

8 yard shot, 50 yard recovery after a Bear Razorhead passed almost completely through her.

Daughter was mad I wouldn't let her go into the woods with me (was way after dark), but I let her get in on the pictures of course.   :D
