After hunting all year and seeing Deer that I was not willing to kill with my rifle, last Sunday I decided to hang a Bow set. I just started bow hunting this year bought the bow last year but did not feel confident enough to try and shoot at something.. Thought to myself I need more practice before trying to shoot a deer, so this year was my first time in a stand with a Bow.. I not going to claim to be a “trophy” hunter but normally the way I hunt is it is either “It’s going on the wall or a doe”… I try my hardest to not shoot young Bucks it has never paid off but I know that one year it will “fingers crossed”… With all of that being said Saturday December 15th… I decide that instead of gun hunting the last weekend of the season I am going to take my bow… I get in the stand 30min or so before day light, and sit until about 8:30, when something catches my eye I look to my left and he comes a young 8pt that I have been watching all year.. I have told myself and everyone else that I was not willing to shoot this deer he is young and already has a nice set of horns, “can you imagine what he will be in 2-3 years” but I guess on that day he and I had the one and only encounter that could have led to his death… I have broken my rule about shooting young deer and for that I am disappointed with myself.. But for my first kill with a bow I just could not pass him up… Maybe now that I have this monkey off my back next year its back to, on the wall or doe even with the bow..
