Default Trad Harvest

This month I received a new bow and have been very happy with how it shoots. It really seems to like the GT carbons with a 100 grain broadhead adaptor and a 125 grain Zwicky Black Diamond two blade Eskimo.

Though enjoyable, it's been a real slow slog this archery season with very few animals spotted. Up unto this morning; I haven't shot at anything....honestly, nothing even close to a shot had materialized over the last two weeks. I think I had seen 5 deer total from my stands.

I was a little surprised this morning to see this doe walking up behind me and going under my stand. I assume the gig was about to be up; but she neither smelled me or sensed my presence. I waiting and let her move far enough out so that I wasn't shooting down on her back for better arrow placement. At the appropriate time, the new bow smoked the arrow across the 20 yards, hitting her tight behind the shoulder. I heard her crash down in the woods so I knew the hunt was over.

I like to think the new bow is 1-0-0 with a lot of mojo. With a trip to Kansas coming up in a couple of weeks, I'm hoping the 'mojo' container has just been opened... and lots of it is left

Way to go String!! Congrats!

Did you say you're retired? Dang dude...you've taken care of yourself. You look way younger than I do and I'm still doing the daily grind!

How big is that doe?

She was one of the larger swamp does that I've killed. She was 92 pounds field dressed so maybe around 115 live weight? Deer don't have big bodies in our neck of the woods.
Thanks for the kind words....this whole retirement thing is the best job I ever had
