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.
Hinge-cutting serves several purposes in regard to improving both whitetail habitat and your hunting experience. There are two main types of hinge cuts including a cut for screening and funnels and a cut for bedding. Hinge cuts for screening and funnels should be done somewhere between the knee and waist to block a deer's vision as well as block a travel path. Hinge cuts for bedding should be done around chest high so that there is room for a deer to bed underneath.
