No pics unless you want one of it being butchered
I had already taken a buck and haven't hunted much since
Tonight I decided to take out my daughters xbow which I had borrowed from her grandpap. I sat in a wooden turkey blind thats 5 yrs old. It sits on the edge of a field on a small finger of a 100 acre wooded lot. I put a decoy out in the field 20 yrds from me. I've never used a decoy before so this was a first. At 45 min till dark a doe and 2 fawns were headed down the field edge and the doe stops 40 yrds from the decoy and goes into "what the heck are you doing here mode" She is slowly making her way into my shooting lane when I noticed a truck stopped on the road 80 yrds away. Now there are cars on the road all the time but when they stop the deer look and when the guy whistles and says It might be a buck the deer run away like a little girls screaming. This was a first for me. 5 more steps and she getting a carbon heart monitor. Well the guy whistling sends her flying down the field a 100 yrds.
My nights done
Or so I thought
2 min later the 2 fawns come flying down the field towards me at a gallop chasing each other. The doe flies in front of them to stop them and goes into trance mode staring at the decoy. Eventually she worked her way to my 30 yrd mark but was quartering towards hard. After a bit she finally turns giving me a broadside shot. I squeeze the trigger like im siting in a rifle at the range. Nice and slow till bang
Arrow flies true and hits her double lung. SHe runs about 100 yrds through the field and piles up.
Shes tagged and quarted hanging in the neighbors cooler
I've been a verticle guy for along time and this is the first time I shot a xbow at a living animal. It was fun and can't wait to do it again
