chenryiv's embedded Photo

First, let me say that I feel truly blessed and fortunate. Yesterday evening while walking to the stand, I caught movement to my left about 20 yds away. I paused and noticed that it was a doe and her yearling. I continued to walk to the nearest tree and stopped. I expected the doe to bolt but she just stood the looking in my direction. I retrieved an arrow from my quiver and nocked it. As I started to draw, she made a hard quartering away turn. I released an arrow, which hit her a little further back than where I was aiming. As she bolted I could see blood coming from her offside. She ran about 100 yards and jumped into the river. She floated about 150 yds downstream and got hung up on a deadfall. With help, I was able to rope her and pull her up the 8ft river bank. She definitely made me earn this one.

When I opened this and saw your handle, I knew there was going to be pics of a dead animal. You sure have this stick bow hunting figured out.

Nice going

river here still frozen

would need ice skates

Good job this late in the year

From: murph
Date: 10-Jan-18

Yea,sometimes its not easy but what a hunt.Congrats to you. I think sometimes when quartered away ,a hit little far back is not bad. That area on them and the angle ,its very soft tissue. and a guy gets great penetration. Again, Congrats.

From: Ranman
Date: 11-Jan-18

Thanks for sharing.. That is a great story. I had a similar hunt this year. I shot a doe and she ran over a ridge and into a pond that we had built in the woods to stop erosion. I had to get a boat and go to the middle of the pond to retrieve her. She was floating in 10ft of water. Crazy.. Randy
