View Full Version : First Bow Hunt

09-14-2004, 07:40 AM
This is my first year bow hunting. I bought a bow about six weeks ago and practiced with it every day. It was drizzeling rain Saturday afternoon about 6 pm when a doe came out. I waited for her to get broadside which seemed like hours. I finally got my breathing under control pulled the bow back and set the pin and fired. It was a perfect double lung shot at 22 yards. Unbelievable the feeling that you get when all the practice pays off I was on cloud nine. I have fished and hunted for years and if I ever loose that feeling I get the night before I go fishing or hunting I think I will quit. You know when you cannot sleep and think about what could happen.

You gotta love it when a plan comes together and that's what bow hunting is all about, planning and preparation. All the little things have to come together in order to make a bow kill and you just proved you can do it.

Way to go and congratulations on a job well done!... :clap:

The biggest thing to overcome is gettin' calmed down.......Once you get calmed down, all you do is put the shot where it needs to be.....

Good Goin' brother!!!!!!! :clap: :clap:

good job. to me, a bow kill is SO much more rewarding than a gun kill. you have to work much harder for it. guess it makes it that much sweeter.

2 seasons...it took me 6 seasons ::huh: and I went through two bows before I finally scored...I haven't let up yet...and I'm not going to, that is until I lose "that" feeling.

Congratulations ...way to take it to the next level. :cool:
