I have been bow hunting for 19 years. Gun hunting for maybe 14 of those years. I have killed over 100 deer with a gun and never killed one with my bow. I finally got my first archery deer Sunday night. Got in the stand late and made way too much noise, didnt really think I would see anything. About 30 minutes after getting settled an armadillo came in behind me, I actually decided not to shoot it. About 15 minutes later a deer stepped out at what I estimated 40 yards. Pulled back settled the pin and let it rip. Watched the arrow about 2/3 of the way there before it disappeared. Heard the WHACK!!! Deer bunched up and took of with its tail down. Thats when it hit me that I had finally scored. Ran about 50 yards and piled up. I thought it was a doe, but when I found him it was a basket racked 4pt. I am still jacked up thinking about it. Cant wait to get back after them this weekend.
