Re: I did not let this deer walk
Well Mark, you definatly took the "one shot, one kill" to the letter, Great shot!
The heart shot if one can place the broadhead there is the ultimate shot. I always go for that shot but not always as proficient.
Ive made lung shots before and Ive always got them. But one year I shot an 8point in a heavy rain one morning at about 45 yards...long shot I know, but it was one of those times ya cant decide and I took the shot.
As soon as it ran off towards a deep creek I began tracking it as the rain was washing all the trail away almost faster then I could keep up. After 150 yards+ of "trying" to track it I gave up thinking it would expire in the general area and I'd come back. I came back latter that afternoon as the rain didnt let up...and with the help of 3 others passing over and over the area, we found it about 50yards short of where I had left off and the coyotes had already found it.
However had it not of been a rain like it was, I would have waited and tracked, but I really didnt have that option. (getting all off course here) Sorry...I get into bow hunting maybe too much!
GREAT shot Mark! BTW, how far was your shot?
Two Words; "Simple Man", song by Charlie Daniels sums up my thoughts on a "few things"!
