Default 1st Traditional Kill

Back in march of this year a friend talked me into getting a recurve bow, i didn't think i would like it but after shooting for a few weeks i actually enjoyed shooting again. Decided to take the recurve out hunting last week and my first day in the woods with it i missed a shot at a doe at 18 yards, shot a little high. Decided to take the recurve out again tonight and after being in the woods for only about an hour started to see deer movement, a nice big spike started my way and just kept getting closer and closer finally at 7 yards a let my arrow fly it penitrated and got both lungs and the heart the deer went 40 yards and went down. To take a deer with the recurve was the greatest thrill i have had in my 25 years of bow hunting, and i hope i get the chance to take more with it, my recurve will be first on my list to bring to the wood with me now. sorry for such a long post, but i'am still excited enough to scream in joy a little more.

Congrats! I don't think there's any hunting experience that compares, and it's something you just have to experience to really understand. Again, Congrats!!
