Default First Bow Kill

Well I went out yesterday evening around 1pm. It was raining and crappy out the whole time. I didnt see anything the entire afternoon and around 4 oclock I was about to climb down cus I had to work at 5. So I went to get my bow hoist to lower my bow and pack and as I look up I saw a doe about 20 yards in front of me. She went behind some bushes and was eating the leaves. I watched her for about 15 20 minutes and I even took a little video of her with my phone camera. Then she went behind my stand about 20 yards when I shot her.

It was tough tracking with all the leaves being wet. I didnt find my arrow so I knew it was stuck inside her. I shot her a little high and back. She went about 100 yards but I think I might have gone to look for her too soon and pushed her. Next time I will wait longer.

The rage 2 did its job.

congrats looks like a great shot.
hard to wait the 30-60 minutes that you should . 100 yards is not bad.
