Default Decided to Change Things Up a Little

I donít post much other than the Traditional section because thatís what Iíve killed about 99% of my animals with since 2009. Earlier this year I got to thinking about things and I realized Iíve killed quite a few bucks with my traditional bows but I had never killed a racked buck with a compound bow. Iíve killed spikes, does, hogs, and turkey in the past but never a real racked buck. I enjoy shooting my traditional bows so much Iíve had a hard time convincing myself to hunt with a compound at all the past 12 years and have only shot maybe 4 animals with one until this past summer. I decided Iím gonna get my first racked buck ever with the compound this year so I decided to practice on hogs and killed 7 with it since summertime. As luck would have it this nice tall, narrow 10 point came into range yesterday morning and I was able to get a shot. Ended up being my best bow buck to date. 138 2/8Ē and would barely even be legal in an AR county.

Very nice! Ashamed that AR counties can't have a deer aged by a biologist allowed as a legal kill in those counties. Did you use the same broadheads as on your trad set up?

Spread is just 1 measurement. Obviously a 13Ē vs an 18Ē is 5Ē differenceÖ.. BUT
IF the tines on a 10 pt g2,3,4 are just 2 longerÖ thatís 12Ē!!!

SorryÖ. Back to an awesome buck! Congratulations again

I used a Rage hypodermic and yes I’ll still be using my traditional bows but I’ll probably start using my compound a little more often.

That's a great deer. I killed one in sabine national forest before the antler restrictions came out. 12 point 13 inches wide. Had 27 inch main beams and 13 inch g 2s. I never had it scored but it would have been a shame to have to pass him now because he was so close .
