My first ever was on a small doe. I bought a Bear Grizzly in the springtime of 09 and decided I had played/practiced enough to hunt with it by November. I had no idea at the time but I had no business hunting yet with my untuned Walmart arrows. I was hunting the corps land at Lake Whitney and just sat in the brush by a trail. A spike chased the little doe right by me and she stopped around 20 yards perfectly broadside and I let it fly! I heard it hit but didn’t see it because I was so excited I probably closed my eyes. Had a great blood trail and tracked her about 50 yards to realize I shot her in the throat. I only missed my spot by like 2 feet but it worked out. I put in a lot more practice after that and didn’t even try to kill another animal for about a year afterwards.
