Default Finally after three years!!! Pics!

I have shot a bow for seven years now...hunted the last three and not a single shot....until today that is!!!

went out this morning and was in my tree stand by 0700..at about 0930 a nice doe showed up about 35 yds and upwind from me, she hung around for about 20 mins and never gave me a shot and then wondered off, I was starting to get disillusioned and almost said $%^& it! I’m done with this! sat in my tree stand for another 20 mins and this doe came out to my left about 30 yds away and down wind, to my surprise she just kept coming moving from left to right, finally stopped to take a sniff of a scent wick I put out about 15 yds away, all the practice, all the advise I got from this site just came to me and I made ,what someone later called, "the perfect shot"
two lungs and nickedthe heart, she went about 40 yds and I heard her crash out of sight, waited 45 mins just in case and got out of my stand packed up and went and got some help...long story not so short.... here she is.

Congratulations, nothing like drawing first blood with a bow!

I don't know if it is really necessary to have a "s.w.a.t. team" along to help with the clean up afterward though...

3 years is all it took you? I'm on 6-7th year and haven't connected yet.

Great deer. Congrats on the bowkill.
