First Archery Muley

I've been a rifle hunter my entire life. The last 2 seasons I've started doing some archery hunting for muleys. Last year I missed two deer over their backs, obviously range errors and came up empty handed.

This year on opening morning I missed a good-sized deer, once again over his back, and I felt very frustrated. So the next morning this little guy stepped out in front of me and I decided it was time to get my first archery harvest. I figure with the first one in the bag I have gotten over the butterflys a little bit.

I've taken a few good muleys with a rifle but archery hunting is a whole different ball game. Anyway here is a pic of my first ever archery harvest of any big game animal!!

Good job! Thumbs up Hunting with a bow is much tougher than rifle.

Congratulations!

It's not the size of the kill that counts, but the size of the thrill. Yes

Congrats on your first bow kill. Now that I bow hunt, it will be impossible to stop me. I love using my bow. Up close and personal with some great animals. Once it's in the blood there's no turning back. This is only the beginning of many more great hunts for you. Congrats again!!!!
