KY Buck from Oct. 4
« on: October 31, 2010, 07:23:00 PM »


       
The arrow had penetrated to the fletching, but worked it's way back out slightly, I guess after he fell.

       
The broadhead is coming out of the chest here. It was poking much farther out than it is here.

       

       

       
My first heart shot with a bow of any kind!

Using a Custom Classic Predator recurve. 48# at my draw length of 26.75". 555 grain Beman MFX 500 Classic arrow with a Magnus vented two-blade head. More bow specs in my signature below. Here's a link to the story posted on the Powow section:  http://tradgang.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=1&t=094630#000000

I love the fact that you took that buck with a 48# bow! We all know the facts but some people just don't understand. Great shot 4thrills! Love the arrows too.
