First Deer with my...
Posted 15 October 2006 - 09:21 AM
I was scheduled to ref a soccer game but when I got there it had been canceled so I headed off for a quick hunt. I got to my honey hole Buddy stand I put for my son and I to hunt a bit late (I was really only going up there to get the easy hanger I left there last season). I arrived climbed in and sat down, knocked an arrow, watched a tree rat for about 10 minutes and she came out of the woods right under my tree stand.
I had about 30 seconds to decide. I saw she was dry, fat and stopped broadside. I pulled the ol' AR34 off the easy hanger while she watched the same tree rat I had been watching and drew. I put the 20 pin on her shoulder and let'er fly. That arrow hit the sweet spot so fast it made me jump almost as high as she did when it hit home, WAP!!!!! She went 20 yards in plain view, did the dirt nap dance and flopped over on her side. That 100 grain 3 blade Muzzy had done it's job and back strap was ready for all. It happened so fast I almost forgot to shoot, lol.
Now, I've taken a few pieces of game with my bow. My old setup was nothing like this new fangled joby I now have. Man, I am impressed with the speed and lethality (shot the head off a grouse at 15 yards this season with my new stuff). If you're on the fence about archery equipment and think a new faster setup wouldn't make a difference, think again!!! I know I could have taken that Deer with a recurve, but why? This was the quickest archery deer harvest I have ever made. She knew nothing of what happened. Just jumped and kicked, walked about 20 yards and expired. Gotta love these new bows. I don't care what you shoot. The new stuff is awesome!!!
