Default My First Bow Kill

I invested in a used Hoyt around 8 or 9 years ago and have tried my hand at hunting from a ground blind unsuccessfully for all of these years with a bow. I have to admit that I usually transition to rifle as soon as the season opens up with the exception of Turkey hunting, i have been stubborn about bow only hunting. This weekend, I decided to invest in a treestand. Gamechanger! First hunt in around the trees yielded many deer observations and my first kill with my bow.

Congrats on the first one!!! Nice pig. Getting off the ground and up in the tree is the only way to go for me.

Way to try something different.

I usually only blind hunt with my kids. Not a fan of looking out that window.

Thank you for all for the kind words and pointing out the obvious. If I was not already addicted or too stubborn to not give up. I now enjoy being undetected in the trees, but most of all, I felt like it was my first hunt ever and the fever has fully set in. Now, to be patient and wait for the right buck. Good look this season!!!

Congratulations, good luck on future hunts out of your treestand. Just mind all the treestand safety advice, practice a few arrows from that stand and enjoy the view from the trees. Good going on your first bow kill.

Congrats. My first bow kill was a hog also. Well my first 3 were. Hahaha.

They are great for target practice with a little pork bonus.
