First deer with a bow #archery

I am pretty excited about this! I just shot my first deer with a bow last night. It is a spike, nothing super special, but it is going to eat just fine. It was way more exciting than shooting a deer with a rifle, wow, way more exciting. Talk about up close and personal! Backstraps and heart are in the fridge ready for dinner tomorrow night.

I spotted him first at about 50 yards. He looked up at me when he was at 40. Stared at me for what seemed like 5 minutes. I was in my full UA forest camo, standing on my X-Stand hang-on. Finally convinced himself things were alright and continued grazing on the acorns for a minute or two. I picked up my bow from the Third Hand Archery holder, and he looked up at me again. Was able to get the bow up and ready to draw while he was behind a big oak tree. Drew back while I had a chance. When he got to 21 yards, and into a small clearing from limbs and tree trunks, he looked up again, right at me. As soon as he dropped his head, I let one fly. I was holding the 80% letoff from my Xpedition Xcentric for only a minute or a half, but seemed like a lot longer. Arrow thumped, and he jumped.

The Iron Will S125 performed perfectly! Upper lung shot, the deer was facing me slightly. The arrow hit a little high, but went through the lungs and exited opposite side behind the rib cage. Buck only ran 40 yards after the 21 yard shot and fell dead. Was nice to see exactly where he went down from the stand. I was a little over a mile and a half into a Federal wildlife refuge, so I did call for some help dragging the buck to my truck. It was a late night, but worth it. I think next year, I am going to do some more scouting a little deeper into that refuge. I know there are some much nicer bucks back there.

Second to last pic is entry, last pic is exit.
