Here is my doe from last evening retrieved this morning, wasnt sure 100 % of the hit , better safe than sorry. 8 yard shot, traveled 50 yards after the shot. A very big girl indeed.

Was she wearing a saddle when you shot her?  That is one big doe.    :eek:    Did you put her on a scale?  Are they all like that in MN?

That is a huge doe. What did she weigh?

Congrats.

i did not have the chance to put her on a scale, since she laid out all night and Time was not in my favor to get her in the freezer. This is my 32 year bowhunting and I have only taken on doe which i think was bigger than this girl. She had twin fawns with her and also another dry doe which was not too much smaller!
