    Default Meat in the freezer

    Well I got some meat for the freezer last friday night. I shot a doe in the apples about 20 yards out. Last year I had my first dry year in about 8 years so I wanted to get my first deer out of the way. Now I can really hunt. The Saterday after I hit a 5 point. I was about 25-30 ft in the air and he was 30 yards down hill from me with 2 doe. Well I let one fly and forgot to take in account for being so far above him. When I seen the arrow hit my heart sank. I hit him high in the back and away he went. I looked for him most of the day on sunday but with no luck. Thats about the only bad thing about hunting. Hope the rest of you are having some luck!!!

    what exactly are "the apples" on a doe? I would assume you meant the "nuts" on a buck but I'm confused...
    No I'm not dead

    Thats cool!! I got 2 does this year out of my stand, Got tired of waiting for the chance at 2 big bucks and had to fill some tags as bow season is over now, They were both 30 yard shots, one went about 27 yards and fell over and the second went 12, i was impressed! Im bummed cause i didnt get my elk with my bow this year, goin to have to go shoot the thunderstick this weekend and try with that i guess, got the brass in the tumbler tonight..... so will see what happens, got a 500 yard range vrs a 70, but its still meat for the freezer right!!!!

    I spend alot of time tuning my heads and shooting far yardages, im verry confident in my hunting, if the animal is offering a good shot, and not looking at me, 70, 80 yard shot on a elk is verry doable. Shot my bull last year at 72 and my whitetail buck at 53. all depends on the situation, ive allso passed up alot of 40 50 yard shots. I had a white tail doe this year, jump the string on me and hit her right below the spine, was a 12 yard shot, and she was looking right at me.... couldnt beleive she moved that much at 12 yards.... so now i wont shoot at anything looking in my direction.....
