    I had been busted the last few evenings trying to draw on deer out of my current stand so i decided to cut a spot for my tree saddle in a nearby cedar tree in order to get more concealment. I rested the spot yesterday evening and decided to get out there early in the morning. 5 deer came out at 7:15 this morning: a couple of yearlings, a spike and 2 does. I picked a spot on the most plump looking doe, and this was the result:

    8 yard shot - double lung - pass through - 30 yd recovery

    Not a trophy by any standard, but this hunt will be etched in my memory bank forever ( My first with a longbow )

    Congrats, any deer taken with Trad. equip. is a trophy. You have accomplished something that only a small percentage of hunters have done and for that I tip my hat to you sir.:thumb:

    Awesome job man. Congrats!! :thumb: I just started shooting a recurve this summer so I know exactly how much of a challenge traditional equipment can be.
     
  16. Any legal deer is a trophy when taken with a bow especially a doe. Congrats.

    Congrats on the kill. Improvise, adapt, and overcome. That's what makes you a hunter, my friend.
