    First deer (with the bow)

    Might as well chuck up a bit of success with the bow, first deer with the bow.

    Well, this roar has been quite disappointing to say the least, after seeing and leaving a few very good stags in velvet I have not been able to catch up with them, or hear any roaring for the matter.
    Pretty sure I must be jinxed when I have the rifle in hand.

    After purchasing a bow from forum member NOAH before Christmas and getting it set-up at advanced archery by simon, I finally got a chance at a deer on Wednesday.

    My bow is PSE brute-x with a truglo 5 pin sight, ripcord rest and im using a 2-shot release aid.

    Deer walks out 5 m away

    She glares straight at me

    She continued to graze away from me, this was my chance, stood up and onto full draw, timing was perfect and she stood broadside as soon as I was ready, 20m pin just behind front sholder and I let rip.

    THUD, solid hit, she bolted down hill and into the bush, crash crash crash, then nothing.


    I was happy to find the arrow straight away and saw that tell tale light frothy blood.

    Now was dark and raining

    After 2nd guessing my shot all night and hoping like hell she was dead, knowing I wouldn’t have a blood trail to follow, I headed out with the dog, beretta. I found her within a few minutes, bundled up 30metres from where she was hit, WHOOP WHOOP.

    Fantastic. Well done
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Best thing about bows...Those mad looking light-nocks you can buy. That would look wicked smacking into a deer's flank

    when you start putting them on your arrow, your whole arrow (including luminok shaft and broad head) gets up around the $50 mark... can be a very expensive deer haha
