I got my first bow kill last night.A nice Mule deer.After follwing him to bed and waiting 2 hours about 25 yards away he got up the feed about noon.As my heart pounded , and a bad case of " Buck Fever " ,I made a bad shot,in the stomach.Spent the next 5 hours tracking and searching for him.I finelly managed to finish the job.All in all agreat first deer,and tenderloins for dinner tonight!!!

Thanks Guys,it feels great to get the first one.

nyturkeyduster,The bow is a High Country TSSR carbon with the Total Shooting System package.

BOHO,as there was very little blood and very open country I would follow him til he went in to cover and would try to get above and watch for him.When i would lose sight of him I would then head into the cover until I could pick up his trail and follow again.I kept this up for about 5 hours,he never did really run much,only15 - 20 yards at a time and would then walk.I figured with such a poor blood trail that I should try and stay close to watch him and get a finishing shot on him.
