My first Trad deer, and my largest buck ever!
« on: November 21, 2011, 11:17:00 PM »
Posted this over on PowWow some time back.
I shot this buck with a bow I made while deployed in Iraq. I also made the arrows and the broad heads. It is my biggest buck with any weapon.
 
Here is the story over on PowWow.

Awesome deer & story, well done   :clapper:
For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation.

Outstanding!  He is truly a record buck and it is a commendable accomplishment to have taken him with all equipment hand made by you.

Congratulations!!!

Awesome story and incredible buck.  I enjoyed following the making of the bow over on the Bowyers Bench.

Congrats and sorry to hear about the bow breaking, but hey you get to make another...right.

Thanks and it is a pleasure to serve. Over 3 weeks since that hunt and I still can't believe the size of that deer.
