Stone Point Does the Trick!
« on: October 08, 2012, 08:28:00 AM »
Well, I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to get a shot on a nice lead doe last evening. She came in at about 10 yds and I made the shot count. When I released, I also hit the bottom of my climber with my lower limb....66in HBI, which is a little longer than I'm used to. Fortunately for me, it didn't slow my arrow down any. I really couldn't make a better shot. It passed clean through. She didn't know what hit her and did the sideways stagger and piled up in a brush pile. Although I didn't post it, I have a picture of the heart, it was a dead center! No wonder she didn't go far or know what hit her. I was blessed last night. This was a bow I made from Ipe that I got from tenbrook(Cody Dumont), and arrows I got from Jonathan Creason. Both are members of this site. The stone was a piece of Buffalo Chert I believe....amazingly still intake without a blemish. I couldn't be any happier. Thanks for looking

So cool!  Congratulations!  The most fundamental and primitive way of harvesting a deer… less running one over a cliff or jumping out of a tree on one  :)

Great job!

Definitely something I would try if I can ever figure out how to kill a deer.
Relax,

You'll live longer!

Made the bow myself, the stone point was made by a friend of mine down the road....I try to knap, but I can't do what he does.  He really is awesome!
