Got myself out into the woods on Thursday, my traditional day off. Dang, was colder than I thought it was gonna be! Sat for a while, and spent a lot of time scouting terrain. Turned a bend in the path and startled two big does, who bailed out in different directions on each side of the trail. I thought, what the heck, one might cross over to join the other. Wasn't too many minutes later I see a foot and head poke out. Deer took two steps, stood sideways and stared at me. I drew, pinned, released.

Oh the sound that the catcher's mitt makes from a solid fastball!

Gave it thirty minutes, but was concerned about the tracking I may have to do through a jungle of clearcut area. Found bright blood, and my deer was only 40 yards away piled up. Somehow, though, it had lost about half of its body mass!

Turns out it wasn't a big doe at all, but a little yearling buck, didn't even have buttons. Definitely not my preferred target, but I'm glad to have made a solid hit and was blessed with an easy recovery.

I tell folks I had to wait at full draw for four minutes. Had to let that last spot fade before I shot it!

Spitfire mechanicals are sweet broadheads!

I've got no qualms about downing a yearling during bow season; I'm putting meat in the cooler if possible. But if I had been able to tell gender, he'd have gotten a pass.

My wife shed some light on this one for me just the other day, as I was trying to get her to commiserate with me on my apparent inability to judge deer size on the hoof:

"Maybe it wasn't one of the deer you saw jump into the brush."

So simple, and I didn't even see it. The two does I saw jump off the path seemed quite large and adult. I waited four or five minutes, and out pokes this young'un that hadn't seen the cause of the commotion, and he wanted to cross to the other side.

I may have a bit of faith left in myself after all. Regardless, the hams I smoked yesterday were remarkably juicy and tender!

Nimrod,
Who cares? I have killed a bunch of deer I'd have bet the farm would dress out over 100 pounds, that dressed 60-70. And visa-versa...The ONLY way I can tell for CERTAIN that a small deer is a fawn is SPOTS. And they better be BRIGHT spots for me to be certain. (even then...there is the "fallow deer" argument).

Kill what you want. ENJOY as long as it is LEGAL, and ethical.

I PROMISE you, I will put a (doe) fawn or two in the freezer this year (this winter if Lord willing). There is simply NO BETTER eating.

Besides, EVERYONE knows that killing such a small deer is a MUCH more challenging endeavour. The vitals are SOOOOOO small. Great shot!!!

LOL Yeah, I used that "small vitals" bit on someone just the other day.

No, don't get me wrong, I'm THRILLED to have put this little feller down, and to have made a quick and easy recovery. I am still so excited about each deer kill, it's almost like I'm still first-year hunting. The disparity between what I saw jump into the bush and what I carried out w/ one hand just had me puzzled.

Course, when that deer stepped out I had the pin on and arrow gone in ten seconds. I knew I was on borrowed time. And for all those that say the little ones are more tender, man is it true!

I'll add this as well Nims...The biggest deer I've ever killed were ALL the WORST eating...while the smallest were ALL the BEST eating.
