If bow hunting was easy everyone would do it, boy am I glad they don't
My dad was telling me a story about some old guys that he hunted with when he was just starting out. He said the old guys told him that they would shoot the deer in the eyes with bird shot to blind them. then they would go and walk them back to the truck before killing them. it made the drag easier. They were obviously kidding but it made a good story.
good luck. I wish you many more deer to come. Hopefully a nice buck or 2 as well.
Congrats on your first and the addiction that is bowhunting.
Thanks for all the congratulations guys. Below is a PIC of the deer. As I said, it was no slammer, but it didnâ€™t have spots either. I exercise a fair amount and was definitely sore the next day from dragging out of the woods.
And VA Deer Hunter, even though weâ€™ve never met in person, youâ€™ve been an excellent source of information with your prompt and articulate replies to whatever questions Iâ€™ve had this year.

A Hunter's prayer: "We pray our sights be straight and our aim be true, we pray for no pain to the game we persue, we thank you Lord for this Land, we thank you for the sights from our stands, we pray for safety one and all, we pray we may return next Fall."
