Indiana doe with my longbow
« on: October 08, 2012, 11:42:00 PM »
I have had two other close calls over the last week but ended up being spotted once and winded once before the deer got within my 20 yard max range. It all worked out this evening though with this big doe coming in to less than 15 yards and giving me a broadside shot and an almost complete pass through with my #40 longbow thanks to my super sharp Razorhawk broadhead from Red Feather Archery! She went down less than 75 yards from where she was standing when I let the arrow loose.

Congratulations Bill!!!!!!
You worked to hard and paid a lot of money for that new bow. Why would you trust protecting it to anything less than Thunderbird Epoxy!!!
