Default FIRST BOW KILL...PIE BALD BUCK PICS

I don't post here much, but have learned alot just by lurking. Here's the story of my first bow deer. I was in my stand very early this morning(Saturday), because I couldnít sleep. Too much anticipation I guess. Anyway, I had to sit for about an hour and 15 minutes before it was legal shooting light. Had a few deer feeding in the corn in front of me about 50-100 yards away, but when it became light enough to see they were no where to be found. I have been so used to the hot weather, I hadnít dressed quiet warm enough, and I was shivering pretty good by the time it got light. I was just sitting there wondering why I had gotten out of bed this morning and all of a sudden I see movement. Yep itís a deer, but it has spots. I donít think any fawns still have spots this late. The distance was around 40 yards, but it was obscured by brush/trees. Then I saw antlers!!!!! It was the pie bald I had seen during my spring scouting!! He was coming straight for me, and when his head went behind a tree I stood up and clipped on the release. My heart started pounding like the devil and my mouth went instantly dry. (Keep in mind this would be my first deer with a bow and only my second deer ever) I made up my mind that even if it were a spike I was going to shoot, so I didnít even count points. I just couldnít pass up a piebald. I didnít know if he was going to turn left or right or if he was going to keep coming straight and go right underneath me. He turned to left and stopped with his head behind a tree. I slowly came to full draw. He took two steps and stopped again. I picked out a light spot on his vitals and put my 20 yard pin on the spot and slowly squeezed. PFFFT!!! The Thunderhead tipped carbon arrow was sent on its way. The buck crow hopped and trotted about 4 steps and turned around and looked at the arrow which was now embedded in the dirt. CRAP I MISSED!! I started to reach for another arrow, the whole time not taking my eyes off of the buck. As I got an arrow out of the quiver I saw the bucks legs buckle slightly and noticed an increasing red spot on the hide of the deer. Then he slowly laid down and did the splits. About that time I started shaking like a dog pooping razor blades. OH MAN WAS I PUMPED!! He hadnít gone more than 10 yards from the spot he was shot. I was surprised he didnít react more to my bow noise. I knew it was a quiet bow but I thought for sure he would run a little bit. No string silencers on my bow either. He was very relaxed and never knew I was there, so that helped in him not running I guess. He has 8 points, but a really scraggly rack. The elbow joint on his front rightleg was locked in the upright position and wouldn't come down. I suspect he was hit by a car and that's why his rack is scraggly looking. The shot was a quartering away shot that took out the top of the heart and both lungs. The hit looks high and a little back in the pics, but I assure you it caught him good. OK...now Iím just rambling. Here's the pics.

That would make a great shoulder mount, I have seen a couple of piebald's and 3 albino's over the year's but in michigan it's illegal to take them, Thumb's up

Wow, super Buck!!!

That is going to be hard to beat. Certainly a buck of a lifetime. I have killed many deer with a bow and a number of Pope&Young bucks but I have never got a crack at one like that. It is simply a beautiful buck, worthy of a full body mount indeed. It would be a shame not to have it preserved because you don't see that type of piebald very often. I'm sure there are quality Taxidermist that would kill to get the full body cape of that buck.
