Default Public Land MD Doe 10/6 - Updated with pics

Shot my first deer with a bow in 3 years this past sat. Was in a newer spot but only about 150 yds down from a tree I had been using.

Was on the inside corner of a corn field in a small strip of woods with an open semi-marshy are next to it. As a bonus I realized there was an apple tree about 10yds away.
Had one doe come through about 5. Looked like something had spooked her. Came within 40yds but no shot.

Had another doe come in from the marshy area at 6:15. I drew back as she went behind a couple trees and one that I had ranged already at 23 yds. She was probably right at 25. I centered in between 20 and 30yd pin behind her shoulder and released. The impact was not good. She was looking around when I shot, but it wasn't becuase of me, but she ducked the shot really bad. Hit high and back and as she took off the arrow was basically sticking halfway out almost vertical from the top of her back.

I think the arrow hit the bottom of her spine and deflected straight down through the paunch. She only went 20 yds or so and saw her go down. 3 blade Rage did the job on a poor hit. This is my first experience with a deer severly ducking the shot.

Was a late night getting her out from about a mile in. But turned out much better than it could have.



She came from the middle of this pic and took the shot after she passed behind the doubled trunked tree on the right side of the pic.

I shot 2 doe this past season. The first was in October and the second was in December. Both were shot with my Mathews Legacy bow with a 3 blade Rage broadhead. The first ran only about 40 yards and was done. I saw
her go down. The second, I hit a little back and decided to leave her over night. It was a good decision because my brother and I found her the next morning after only maybe 10-15 minutes of looking. First one weighed 136 lbs and the second was 134 lbs. No bone to hang on the wall but lots of venison for the winter.
