I know that I haven't been posting much on the team thread but life for us lately has been very hectic. Anyway, I did manage to take down a doe this morning and give the team 50 more points. I've already posted two pics and all pertinent info on the scorecard thread cap'n, so you don't need to remind me. I've made some good shots since I started bow hunting but this shot is one that I will remember for a long time. I was sitting in a small 5 acre patch of woods. There were standing soybeans to my south and to my east. There was a picked corn field to my west and this patch of woods is bordered on the west and the north by a deep creek. Normally the traffic is east/west or west/east. This morning a group of about 10 does and fawns came into the woods from the bean field on the southwest corner about 60 yards from me. They stayed well out of bow range and made a big circle around me until they were right on the creek bank directly north of me at 50 yards. I was sure they were going to keep going east, cross the creek and be gone, but the lead doe suddenly turned and headed right for me. I turned my Tactacam on, dialed my sight to 25 yards and got ready. I was sure they would come in and head east on the trail at 25 yards. The lead doe stopped at 25 yards behind the leaves of a small tree and stood there for about two or three minutes and then she backtracked and crossed my shooting lane at 35 yards. I had ranged where she crossed at least a dozen times to make sure I knew what to do if this happened. Still, my sight was set at 25 yards. I drew when I saw her move, but I wasn't expecting the backtrack. I shoot a heavy arrow (530 grains) out of a 60# Heli-m, so I whistled to stop her, settled the pin just below the top of her back and touched the release. It was a beautiful sight watching that arrow drop in and hit her right behind the right front leg. The arrow blew through both lungs, the lower scapula on the offside front leg and stuck in the dirt. A little while later I was about to update the "live from the stand" thread when I caught movement in front of me. A small 8 point and a four point came in and stood for about 5 minutes right where that doe had been standing when I shot her. I was hoping a nicer buck would be following them, but that was it for deer movement before I got down. I'm colorblind, so I texted my brother to let him know that I might need help. There wasn't any need, though. I found my arrow and started looking for blood. Of course, I didn't find any, so I walked a few steps in the direction I knew she had ran. I was looking all around and then I happened to look down. She was less than 10 feet from where I was standing. It's not that often that I make a bow kill and not need help finding it.
