Not a trophy for most, but it's my first year hunting and he's my first deer. I can get more picky with time.
Centerpoint Sniper 370, Victory Decimator bolts, Rage Extreme Chisel tips. Shot broadside at ~35ish yards, <span style="font-style: italic">several hundred</span> yard recovery. He pretty much sealed up and the blood trail was difficult to follow. Bow is cocked in the picture because we found him after 2-1/2 hours still alive and I was preparing to shoot him again, ended up not having to.
Birthday Buck! Went out this morning on my 33rd birthday, happy to just be enjoying my time in the woods. I never dreamed that a 10 pointer would come into range. I'd had my eye on a beautifully symmetrical 6 pointer earlier in the season but no deer, buck or doe, came in close enough and at the right angle or location. This morning was a different story. While I lament the fact that I won't be able to hunt the islands during late season flintlock I am elated to be filling the freezer.
