Very nice buck. Congrats and "Waidmanns Heil" as we say here. Would you please tell me where you hit him and how far he went. In GE bowhunting is absolutely forbidden by law.
I'm a ML hunter.
I got him on the ground. I was down by the creek when I spotted him coming down the hill. I was able to sneak behind a tree and wait for him. He was less than 15 yard from me uphill. The shot went under his shoulder right trough the heart. He ran about 30 yard. this is where I found him.
thanks for the fast answering. I always find it fascinating when a deer is hunted with a bow. Because I think successfull bow hunting needs many components. It is not only the bow, but also the hunter who must handle is bow absolutely professional. You know what I mean. It is more than pulling a trigger. For me as ML hunter the harvest with a flinter rifle needs many profession, so bow hunting is much more difficult. I think each bow hunted deer is a real trophy.
Here is the scenario... you sit in your 2 piece climbing stand and your foot inadvertently bumps the lower section while there is no weight on it - and it slides down the tree, out of reach!
OK, you are safe - you have a string tied from the upper section that you are sitting on and the foot portion that slid 4-5 feet down the tree. All you have to do it pull the other section up, reposition it and you are back in business, correct?
Have you ever tested this theory?
