    After a tough start to the Fall Bow Season:
    https://www.newjerseyhunter.com/article109913.htm

    I was able to connect on Wednesday Evening (9.21.11). I left work as soon as possible and was dressed and in the stand by 5:34 pm. Well within 6 mins. I was adjusting my hat when I look up to see a nice doe snorting at me. After remaining motionless, she calmly walked to the opposite side of the property to go eat acorns. I watched her feed for 5 - 10 minutes and lost track of her. Shortly after 6 pm I had a doe and BB walk in to our feeder which just went off. They got a nice and relaxed as did I while attacing the release to the bow, when before I knew it, they were moving on. As disappointed as I was, they returned in 10 minutes. As they worked around the feeder, the doe who I concentrated on b/c the BB needs to grow for a few more years never gave me a good shot opportunity.
    Finally, she turned to move up a main trail in which she stopped broadside at 14 yards when I zipped a rage tipped arrow through her. I can honestly say that this is my first full pass through with a rage as the last 3 years never got me a pass through. I know it's mainly shot placement, but these blades seem to plug up fairly quickly upon entering the body cavity. Because of that, I bought some Burt Coyote Lumenoks which are AMAZING! I love watching a red light fly from my bow into the body and ultimately through it or in it in case I don't get a pass through. What an awesome product!
    Well needless to say, after a lung hit, she ran about 50 - 60 yards and piled up!

    The tough decision was after the shot which I felt was very good and could see my arrow sticking in the dirt, was that the rain started coming down and I was nervous I'd lose the blood trail. I tried to stay patient in the stand, but I couldn't help but get down after 20 minutes and start the search. The rain did wash away the blood fairly quickly but the big white belly in the distance was easy to spot!

    Here's a few pictues! Simply amazed at the awesome entrance hole from the rage, but the exit hole was so much smaller.







    TIME TO GO BUCK HUNTING!
