All year long I have read all of your stories and seen posted pictures

I had visulized these moment for a long time , and never did I imagine I was going to be as pleased as I am now

I wanted a good buck but any buck with my long bow would have been a trophy

I placed my ground blind on Friday in the middle of the day in a place where there was a lot of deer sign

My first morning in the blind this buck came walking by 6.5 year old 8 point buck , the rest is in the pictures

Bob lee signature long bow with short 15 riser 53@27 with mfx beeman classic arrows and 125gr snuffers (these are great!!!!) they do whistle but make a lot of damage

One of the higlights of the hunt is that the deer ran only 60 yds,

at first I taught I had hit him a little to the left but the arrow got both of the lungs and the main arteries to the heart.

I still waited 3 hrs to search for him because of previous bad experiences
and found the boken arrow at 6 yds where I had shot him, the blood trail was abundant and the buck was close by, I belive he died some minutes after the shot

the shot was at 10 yards , I placed a pop up blind and the sun was coming up from behind me so he took some time coming in but gave me a very close shot

Great trad shot Gerardo,

Cuando comentas Snuffers, te refieres a las ss ?
Gran punta y mejor flecha.

Felicidades, de que parte de Monterrey?
