First kill with a crossbow

Post by Mmiller385 » Tue Oct 11, 2016 2:29 pm

I live in south Mississippi and archery season has been open since October 1 but with temperatures still tipping 90 I haven't been to motivated to get in the woods. But this past Friday got off work early and said what the heck. I had 5 doe come in about hour before dark but stayed 60 plus yards away.Finally at last light one came into 48 yds and i made a high shoulder shot and she actually dropped in her tracks. i was aiming for the heart but I think she ducked a little or I might have pulled a tad either way short tracking job. Bad news is arrow broke and the swacker is beyond repair but dead deer. This micro makes me smile.
