First of the Year - First with New Bow
« on: September 25, 2013, 04:19:00 PM »
Took this button buck last night, first night in the woods this year.

An hour and a half after getting settled in, he entered stage right. I had a few opportunities to try and pull of a shot, but the risk of getting busted was too high.

I let the scenario play out, as he was on a heading that would bring him 12 yards quartering away. As he was entering my shooting lane, I stood, drew, and loosed the arrow.

I hit him about 2.5" forward and high of where I'd have placed the arrow for a perfect shot.

The instant the arrow struck, I new I'd be watching him go down in sight. He didn't make it 25 yards. How blessed...

   

Equipment:
Bob Lee Ultimate
Gold Tip 55/75
VPA 3 Blade....


Good luck out there.

Good judgement comes from experience.  Experience comes from bad judgement.

Very nice   :thumbsup:
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.
