View Full Version : Kill

Here is the entrance hole from a little kill last week. 13 yard shot facing me so I shot it right under the throat patch. It hit the ground & never even kicked. I am prepared to be flamed for that shot angle but it beats having them run off & having a unrecovered deer so flame all you want. A quick clean kill is the best we can strive for & this shot provided exactly that.

Whatever it takes to get the job done. On a small deer like that, I'd take that shot 100% of the time from a reasonable distance. :darkbeer:

good equipment, lotsa practice, confidence in skill, thats what its all about. no one should say anything besides congrats. we should all have the skill and confidence to take that shot any day. if not you shouldnt be hunting -you should be practicing so that you can make that shot.
so congrats. great shot. gotta love the reapers.

Thats where I shot my first deer with a bow! I was using a viper vortex with a 2.5 inch cutting path! She was about 10 yds and nearly took her head off. I knew I was gonna be a bowhunter for life after that evening. Had hand surgurey 16 yrs ago and have only been back with a compond 2 yrs and got 2 broadside last year zero so far this year. Ready for some fresh venision!!
