Harvesting my first archery deer was and still is as exciting as I had dreamed it would be.

Friday, November 14, I headed out of work early for another evening sit. All day I had planned on going to a stand I had been seeing several deer from, just none that wanted to play nice and give me a clean shot. Problem was the wind. This stand is normally a south wind stand, but as I left work, a cold northern was blowing strong, which had be a little disgruntled as to what to do. By the time I reach the hunting area, the wind had died down a little and shifted more to a westerly wind than a dreaded northerly. I knew then God was gonna help me out that night. My wife, Sarah, told me on the way that she thought I would get one. And I did

I arrived at the hunting area at 3:05, quickly changed into my hunting clothes, grabbed my 2007 Martin Cheetah with Onestringer wrapped PSE Radial X-Weave Pros tucked safely away in a Bohning Lynx 4 quiver, and headed to my stand. 150 yards from my stand, I see the neighbor driving through his field real close to the fence, which probably helped my cause by allowing me to sneak in to my stand while the deer where distracted my the truck. I am hunting close to a bedding area, so I have to be extra stealthy.

3:25 rolls around and I am set up ready to roll Scan and wait scan and wait, stand up, scan and wait, sit down, scan and wait... You know the drill.

5:20 comes and I think to myself, start packing it up. Several things going on that night and really needed to get on home. 5:24 Stand up one more time to scan with my Bushnell 10x42 binoculars, put them back down, glance back to my left and there he was, walking in at 20 yards. I was facing WSW, wind blowing from the WNW, he was coming from the SSW. Slowly I had turned my upper body and grabbed my bow, clipped on the Tru-Fire Hurricane release and drew back all in one motion. I had previously ranged several trees using my Bushnell Scout 440 Rangefinder, so I knew within reason exactly how many yards to hold for. He stopped very slightly quartering to at 10 yards. Perched 21 feet up, I squeezed the trigger and let the Bohning Blazer guided 100 grain Slick Tricks loose. Nearly a perfect shot, only a little forward. The Tricks sliced through the top part of his right front shoulder and exited in his far side arm pit. He lept two bounds 10 yards to the edge of the woods and slowly limped away another 25 or 30 yards. Layed down and expired just a few minutes later, all within sight. The time from seeing to shooting, was only 10 - 15 seconds.

Just want to thank the good Lord for the oppurtunity to enjoy his creation!!!

Also to DB for showing me several things earlier in the season, that helped me out tremendously with harvesting my first archery deer.

Finally, the hours in the treestand, arrow after arrow into the foam, scouting time, equipment preparation has paid off

Default First deer harvest

One of many. You always remember the first one. Nice buck and look at the blood from that Slick Trick would you. He wasnt running far.

Way to go. Proud of you.

Thanks DB and Hoyt

I have been distracted by the pictures all day.

Put the Slick Tricks anywhere near the kill zone, and you won't have a long trail to follow. They definately do the 'Trick'.
