After the rain finally stopped yesterday I figured I would have about two hours of good light so I grabbed the crossbow & headed for the woods. Not long after I got set up a doe & two yearlings came by & were constantly looking behind them. They were still in sight when a six point came in with his head down & smelling the ground. It was a legal deer & all I was after was some meat so I said "Hey" & he stopped & looked right at me & I had the crosshairs on his chest so I squeezed the trigger. He did a high mule kick & ran off into a swampy thick area. I waited almost two hrs & by that time it was dark. I put on my head lamp & went over & found my arrow stuck deep in the ground & completely saturated with blood. I didn't find any blood right where I hit him but found good blood about ten yds from where I hit him. I tracked him for about only 15 yds & the blood got very heavy & I shined my headlamp a head & saw him piled up. Both lungs were destroyed & close to a gallon of blood ran out of him when I opened him up. Short successful hunt. Gotta love the crossbow!
