Killed this guy at 6:15 this evening at a fence crossing on an oak flat while following a 1 1/2 old deer. He acted like something wasn't quite right and turned to leave. Unfortunately for him he was 20 yards away and offering a perfect quartering away shot. The Muzzy tipped arrow hit him 3/4 the way back of his ribs getting both lungs and the heart before exiting through the forward portion of the front leg on the opposite side. The deer ran hard with his tail down and tucked, stumbling and falling once before getting back up and going another 15-20 yards. Total distance covered was about 80 yards. Can't say I very pleased with the muzzy on this one. The deer's dead and the chest cavity was absolutely full of blood but the entrance wound and the exit wound were rather small in my opinion at least compared to past kills. If I hadn't seen the direction the deer ran and having saw it crash this would have been a very difficult trail to have followed especially since everything was wet following the recent rain. I think this is more of an exception as I've usually had some excellent results with the 100gr 3 blade muzzy.

Polecat, another nice start again this season bro. Great job, and I may be wrong but that buck I believe is older than most might think.

Thanks man, I appreciate it. I was and still am a little worried about this season. The wife and I had our first child a few weeks ago. I thought with as much leave time from work that I have taken I would be able to hunt more. Unfortunately it's just not working out that way. We had some complications following the birth that required me to stay close to home. Things are getting better, just part of it I guess.

I do have to admit so far it has been a nice start. Three weeks ago I was able to go to Georgia and harvest a nice size alligator with my bow and now to have killed a respectable 8 point less than ten minutes from home out of a woodlot that until recently has only been used for hunting squirrels.

I feel pretty fortunate right now.
