First archery deer!

Recommended Posts

Bow season opened on October 1st here in Ontario and I've been out about 10 times. Been seeing some deer, nothing with antlers until last night. We had a couple inches of snow late last week plus some rain yesterday morning so the ground was pretty wet. I noted on my walk into the stand that it was pretty much silent walking over the leaves. Got to the stand at around 4:00pm and at 5:30pm I was taken off guard by a buck breaking through some thick brush 20 yards directly in front of me!! I was kicked back pretty comfortable in my chair with my legs crossed and my bow on the floor of my stand at my feet. I thought there was no way I'd be able to reach down and get my bow without it seeing me, and I had very limited time since this thing was on the move. I reached down slowly and got my bow and clipped my release onto my string and he looked up at me. I thought I was busted! We had a 2 minute stare down and something caught his ear behind him. I got to about half draw and he looked back up at me, I had to let off. Then he turned back around and I was able to get to full draw before it looked up again. Looked through my peep sight and the right pin was right where I wanted it, I released. Perfect shot right behind the shoulder. I jumped for joy as I heard it crash in the thick woods behind my stand not 10 seconds after I shot. I got down and found my arrow lodged in a stump full of blood. I was pumped!! I came back to the house and got Kayla and Emma and went to retrieve it. Beautiful 8 point buck, not the biggest in the world but I'll take it! Very happy with it. I had just put the SD card back into my trail cam which sits pointed towards I shot, was hoping to have the shot on cam but I just had a few of the deer in the final seconds.
