Archery Deer In Michigan

Postby ricky racer » Thu Nov 12, 2020 4:55 pm

I got this guy this morning as he was chasing a doe. I tried to get him to stop with no luck. He did slow down briefly which is all it took. That's why I love instinctive shooting, I just came to anchor and the ol' computer did all of the calculations. I released the arrow and the 2 met. The shot looked low to me but in reality it couldn't have been better. I watched him die about 40 yards from where I shot him.
My bow is a 45# Samick Sage, shooting a Gold Tip shaft with a 125 grain Grizzly mounted on a 125 grain Ace Broadhead adapter.

No time to video him coming in but I've got a shaky video of the recovery.

Did you get it hunting near your home or travel to another part of the state? Vern

Congrats! Nice deer to start your retirement!

Thanks for sharing the video; beautiful morning the Lord blessed you with. Looks pretty dry out. Firearms deer season opens up this morning in Missouri.

How long were you in the stand?

Nice deer. Rifle season opened last weekend in the central section of NC where I hunt. I’ve seen a 10 point a couple of times during our bow and black powder seasons but he wouldn’t come in range. I haven’t hunted yet during the gun season but I’m going this weekend. Hope to see him again because he’ll be in range of my rifle
