Believe me I'm tempted. Every time the deer are in the yard my 5 year old daughter yells "Dad quick grab your bow". Kills me each time I've got to tell her the neighbors won't like me shooting a deer in the front yard.
Even if they don't run I'm not sure I could explain the huge pool of blood if I took a neck shot. The deer I shot last year the arrow deflected and went through the neck. You're right in that they don't run, it dropped within 5 feet but there was A LOT of blood. It was a pretty gruesome scene.
I had a very good opportunity this weekend to add another deer to the freezer but they were just to small. I another buck grunting behind me so i opted to wait. It didn't pan out, I'm all right with that.
I butchered my last couple deer, that makes (54) for the year. Friends, neighbors and family. Yes, that's a lot of deer!!!! The most I've ever done.
Another year in the books for this guy!!! I have a ice show at cabelas (Owatonna) this weekend and then I'm on the ice for the rest of the year!!!!
