Both deer were taken with a sinew backed osage flatbow, river cane arrows, and sinew wrapped trade points. The 115# doe was taken on the evening of 11/ 8/ 03 at a distance of 6yds.
The 190# 8pt was taken at 5yds ( I like'um close! ) on the morning of 11/11/03. This buck was tending a doe and trying to keep 3 other bucks away from her for about a half hour before she lead him past me ,, it was quite a show ! I had almost not gone hunting that morning because I had the flu all night,,I even laid in the front seat of my truck when I got to the farm trying to decide if I should hunt or not. I guess sometimes not being too smart, leads to being lucky : )

The bag that is hanging around you in the photos is it similiar to a possibles bag like Blackpowder hunters use? I am presently hunting with a grey military shoulder bag, I think it is a gas mask bag. I have been wanting to make a bigger more functional bag from leather or wool. Is it possible you could email me pictures of yours?
