Got my first one! Only took me ten years...
« on: October 06, 2014, 09:04:00 PM »


Got this beautiful doe Sunday evening! I used my 54# Kota Killum, 2018's with a 160 grain Zwickey Eskimo broad head. She dropped within sight. I have been bow hunting enthusiastically but unsuccessfully for over ten years. The information I have learned from the great people on this website has helped me to achieve a long term goal. Thanks so much!
