Centaur Big Game head (pics)
« on: December 31, 2013, 05:42:00 PM »
A nice little Wisconsin 9 pointer, I shot the second weekend in November at 13 yards with a Big River static tipped longbow, 66", 54#@28", self made Surewood shaft, tipped with a Centaur LW bevel Big Game head.  

Entrance wound was more pronounced than exit (you are viewing the entrance wound, left side).  A 60 yard trail with modest blood initially but fairly heavy in the last 15 yards tells me he ran that distance, then started to bleed-out before expiring; within seconds after the shot.
 
The shot placement is lower than I would have liked but I'll take it, if its lethal!

Happy New Year Brothers; all the best in 2014!

Thanks guys -

Don't have a lot of time these days with little ones (Finn 4 & Kaia 23 months) and wanted to shoot a bow buck this season for sure, so this was hard to pass up.  I also wanted to try the single bevel Big Game head for the first time.  Also went back to woodies (Surewood, Doug Firs) after a bit of a hiatus.  

Always rewarding to harvest an animal in appreciation of the life and spirit that was given.  This little buck has already provided delicious meals for my family and I who love venison and "organic" meat.

Great to live in a country where we can still provide for ourselves at this level.

Great job Kris!  Nice buck.  Gonna have to pick your brain some about transitioning to woodies.  Again, nice work!

Thanks guys.  Shot was a 'bit' low...shooting from a tree, the exit was just above the sternum on deers right side.

NBK - talk to you at the WTA Banquet in February.
