Default Broke in my new Mathews VXR

Hunting on a friend of my son place in San Angelo and could shoot doe and a few target crab claw 8s that they wanted off. One of them came in this morning and my son was able to get a shot. Arrow didnít pass thru so we went and got my dog just to be sure. Easy track for her of about 80 yds. Arrow deflected off rib and was barely poking out other side.


This evening had a bunch of doe and a nice 8. Kept trying but could never get a shot on a doe. Had the other crab claw come in. Left and came back again at last light. Was able to get the shot. Tiny bit back but he dropped at 50 yds in the open. Now my bow i just got in October is no longer a virgin.

Great day for us and also have a gun doe hunt at Mason Mountain WMA so lot of deer processing in my future.

Oh how I wish she could talk. I love that old girl and even though she can barely hear and has a bad hip and often walks on 3 legs she comes alive for this stuff. At times she was pulling me faster than I could go. Here nose still works for sure. Never had an ounce of tracking training. All instinct for her. Sad part is just as Iím beginning to really be able to read her when she is tracking, she is starting to decline.

Congrats! I’m hoping to do the same with my VXR here soon. I’ve had several opportunities but things just haven’t worked out yet. It’s a sweet shooting bow.
