    Default 1st Deer??

    How big was your first deer shot w/a bow?? was it buck, doe, both??? How long had you been hunting????

    Mine was a nice little six pointer that I thought was a spike when I shot it....
    it was getting pretty late and the antlers on that deer were very dark....

    I started hunting when I was 14, and shot that deer when I was 16, will remember that forever I think.....
    I cut things up and split them down!

    My first deer with a bow was a button buck. I thought it was a doe. I was very excited anyway. About 100 lbs.

    Default first

    My first deer was also a button buck. Same idea, thought it was a doe and stuck him at the bottom of my ladder. I was 12 yrs old and started hunting at 10. I was defintly hooked after that. Later that year I shot my fist buck with a rifle. Floppy horned 10 point some guy told us. When my parents pushed him out to me he dwindleld down to a four point some how And every body wonders how storys get started.

    "how can the first deer you shoot be both?"

    Where I come from a button buck is a doe. So my first deer was a doe and my first buck was a 4 point.

    Didn't think is was that hard to understand.

    I started bowhunting at age 16. I did not kill a deer ( with a bow ) until I was 21. Knowing what I know now, I should not have even been in the woods with a bow until age 20. I lacked the skills and knowledge to be carrying a bow. That all changed at age 20 when my Dad and I found a great archery shop. New equipment, a great teacher, and a lot of practicing later, I was truly ready. My second season with the new equipment ( and confidence ) I arrowed an 80-85 inch seven point at 13 steps while hunting from the ground after using my grunt call to bring him in. Now I'd rather not pick up a rifle. I can honestly say I'm ADDICTED......first deer( a buck), first ever response to a grunt call and at "spitting" distance. How could you not be addicted after that?!

    i shot my first deer last year, it was a spike. i never have deer hunted, i hunt elk and if i see a deer close enough to shoot, i will shoot it. my first year of hunting, 7 years ago, i shot a coyote, that was my first bow kill. the deer i shot last year was dumb as they come too, i spooked him and a doe and then he walked back up to me within 15 yards and stood broadside, he never ran, i shot him and he walked away real slow.

    First deer with a bow was a 9-pointer 5 nice pretty points on the left and the right side had been broken and was growing downward w/4 points. He was running at 17 yards when I shot him with an old Indian bow shooting instinct. Wow was I ever lucky. My brother was about 75 yards away and could'nt believe it. The deer piled up about 25 yards away. Oh and did I mention the reason he was running.............................a friend had already shot the deer about 75 yards away from me and I did'nt know it. So we shared the meat.
