1st crossbow kill
Due to my herniated disks and arthritis I bought a crossbow this year. Had a hard time standing to draw with the compound after sitting the last couple of years.
Hunting in a small apple orchard in Tioga co I had 2 doe and a BB run up Sat at 4pm. Arrowed the lead doe, thru and thru quartaring shot, dropped at 30yds. Glad they were moving in the wind.
They trotted up pretty fast to about 12yds from me, the trail doe could smell something, and was lookng at me and twitching, doubt I would have been able to draw and stand with my compound without being busted. The crossbow is definetly easier, like rifle shooting. I can think of several hunts in the past where I would have klled deer if I had been using the crossbow at that time.
First time using expandables, spitfire maxx's, man they destroyed the lungs and top of the heart on that doe, pretty sold on them.
Good to get meat, ready for the weather to cool down an the bucks to start moving.
