first trad kill on thanksgiving!!
« on: November 27, 2009, 10:10:00 PM »
I finally did it!!!!  over a month of hunting constantly, and over 25 deer within 15 yds, I was about to go crazy.
shot this doe thanksgiving morning about 9 in the morning, 12 yd broadside, double lung, my arrow penetrated just past the fletches. saw her run for 30 yds and heard her go down. good blood trail, found her after 50 yards of trail that resembled that of a wine truck with a hole in it.  she lived for 5 seconds after the shot and died crossin a ditch.
bob lee 43#@25" recurve, woodsman elite 175 gr. heads, easton carbons.
