Well this is my first season of trad only, and after passing a lot of easy training wheel shots and waiting for the right moment, I got it done. Unfortunately, I think I may have found a drawback of using a fixed crawl method for aiming in the process. I had a deer come in behind my stand and was following it as it walked, knowing it would pass into a lane at 15 yds quartering away. I drew as it passed the last bit of heavy brush, held my spot, and released. Heard a strange loud crack instead of a thud, and realized there was a finger width branch hanging in the middle of my "lane". Found out the hard way that when I aim with this method, it causes small branches to blur into obscurity and I never saw it. The arrow impacted further back then I wanted, but we put a good track job and found him. Im still amazed the arrow still had that much umph to penetrate enough to kill. Not how I wanted, but I got my first, and it was amazing. Going trad was the right call, can't imagine going back!

Yea brother. Nice job, pure adrenaline. I'm seriously considering trad only for the rest of my hunting years.
It's really the only hunting I truly enjoy .
Guns just don't trip my trigger anymore, so to speak.
