    Got my First Archery Doe!

    Started hunting last year. Went archery hunting about 5 times....never saw a thing. Got a doe last day of PA rifle season. Decided to try archery again this year. I really focused on hunting with the wind, getting to my stand quietly, sitting still....all the basics. Started to see more deer. Went out about 12 times this year. Passed on some spikes but never had anything else come within range. This morning I went out in zone 48. Everything went wrong. I got up into my stand at 515 and dropped my crossbow. Crash! Went back down and picked it up...figured the scope might be off but I'd get back up. Then, around 615 another hunter comes in and walks right through to the bottom of my stand (doesn't notice me). I figure: OK, this hunt is screwed. I made a ton of noise / so did he / and now his scent is all over. I figured I'd sit until 8 or 9 and then leave. At 730 I hear some squirrels to my left and look. It's a doe at about 20 yards facing me! Heart starts racing. I slowly move to get a shot. Does keeps facing me. I'm standing still...trying not to look her in the eye. Finally she presents broadside. I bring up my x-bow. I don't give myself a chance to start shaking...as soon as the dot is on her vitals I pull the trigger. Double-lunger. She went about 50 yards. Huge blood trail. Grim Reaper broad-heads. I know alot of guys would have passed on her; but she's a monster to me.........Name:  First Doe.jpg

    Congrats! Sitting still makes a difference. Sometimes it helps to have some clown walking around if your sitting. Quite a blood bath!
