    I shot this this morning with my bow. 20 yards, double lung.

    Not the biggest rack but I'm pretty happy with him!

    Nice Buck! I just killed a doe about 30 minutes ago. Unfortunately it wasn't with a bow or gun....it was with Ford Explorer!

    I shot my first deer with my crossbow last Thursday evening. I have ladder stands and ground blinds on two area farms and was going to use the blind I was in on Tuesday evening as I had three deer out in the field in front of it but they wouldn't come close enough for a shot.

    I was walking up the field along the edge of a woodlot toward my blind at a little after 5:00 p.m. when I spotted a doe looking at me from within a cluster of briars behind a deadfall 35 yards in the woods. All I could see was her head and the meaty part of her shoulders and was sure she would run if I stepped sideways to get a shot at her vitals, so I leaned to my right as far as I could while balancing myself on my right foot and shot her through the throat and neck.

    My son found half of the bolt up high in her chest cavity; the other half apparently broke off against a tree as she ran a short distance before dropping. Two of the three blades on my Rage mechanical broadhead were bent so I'm assuming the bolt hit bone after entering through her neck.

    We got 68 pounds of meat from her so she was a good-sized doe. In fact, I've shot racked bucks that weren't any bigger.

    Congrats on your buck! The vegetation in the field in the photo looks just like the stuff in the field I was walking through.

    Any deer with a bow is a trophy. I got my first one with a bow at age 64. Probably my biggest hunting thrill.
