Default Finally killed a deer

I finally killed a deer with my bow. I have been bow hunting for almost 20 (minus 5 years in the Marine Corps) years wherever anyone would let me. My season was over in 6 minutes this year. I got in the stand at 7:23 am on the 2nd and shot this deer at 7:29 am. I don't know what he scored but I'll take estimates if you want to give them.

Maybe I can get a couple doe over thanksgiving before the Dec 1 doe cut off in Brazoria county.

Thanks yall. I've killed plenty of doe and little bucks with a rifle and more than a few pigs with both. But I just never could kill a deer with the stick and string. I bout had a heart attack when I picked him out of the grass. I gave him a mouth grunt to stop him and make sure he was outside 13" since i hadn't seen him head on yet. As soon as he turn I knew and let it fly.

This is on a place with no fence and no protein. This guy was on a trail that bypasses any feeder. The only teeth left in his mouth were right up front.

I'm still blown away by this guy!

Oh man. Congrats on the awesome buck and first bow kill.

I sort of know where you were at. I am 5 years into bow hunting and have only killed hogs.

Heck, I'm in my early 40's and been hunting 10 years and have not killed a buck yet. Gun or bow.

Congrats again.
