Great job and an absolute great accomplishment. Continue to take whatever deer you want and please post the pics/story. We are hunters and its a shame sometimes people on here forget what we are.

I guess that could mean we are in the same clique or should I say wolf pack? Regardless it's quite an accomplishment harvesting a deer with traditional equipment. As any of you who have killed with a traditional bow know, there's a big difference between getting a deer in trad bow range and actually harvesting one. So much can go wrong at the time of the shot that even the easiest chip shots can go awry. I know this from both personal experience and experience gained from other very successful trad hunters who I consider to be friends. Shoot, I guess that's another clique. Q, I know this was a special harvest for you even though you do in fact have a wall full of big bucks of your own, many of which are bow kills. Then, on top of all that, you quickly followed it up by harvesting a 7 pt buck. Killed in the middle of a swamp and recovered in the water at that. I mean, we're not talking about shooting Kentwood spikes with a rifle here, this is hardcore stuff.

BUT, with all that being said, I would have let both walk. I guess it's the old school conservationist in me. I have let hundreds of deer pass while in a Tensas tree with the old recurve. I attribute that to my extensive training as a State Constable Sheriff's Airborne Park Ranger Justice of the Peace! That was one **** of an academy, but I pulled through and learned so much. Although, while trad hunting, I did finally see a 27 pointer that was worthy of the ol' TorchIgnitor's arrow. I was set up in a MB staging area over looking a primary scrape the size of a '59 Cadillac hood. There were several does in the area, but I wasn't concerned with them since I had already done my meat killing elsewhere. Every true bowhunting woodsman knows if you want to kill an MB, you don't kill his ladies in his bedroom. Back to the 27 pointer or was it 35? Regardless, it was every bit of 503 pounds on the hoof. As he approached the scrape I was set up 63 yards off of, (chip shot for the ol' recurve) I slowly drew my bow. Unfortunately, in my haste I forgot one very important detail! You see, I hit the woods at 1:47 that morning and walked to the stand with no light and on my hands backwards in order to minimize noise. Naturally I couldn't carry much so I put my John Rambo survival knife in my teeth. That's the unfortunate part. When I drew on the 48 pointer, my bow string caught the blade and broke. I smiled and watched the large buck run off, knowing that I would just chock this up as another pass and try to pass it off as being just as much an accomplishment as a kill to those inferior beings on the internet.
I don't post much at all here anymore for various personal reasons, but this could possibly be the greatest **** story I've read since I joined back in '09. Thanks for sharing bro!!!! (It's strange though, because it all sounds so familiar. Ya know, like I've heard it over and over and over before).

Congrats again Q on a great accomplishment. Any deer with a trad bow is a special moment. I'm still stuck on the training wheels. Lol.

Congrats on the 2 Trad Kills Jay. Not many hunters can say they have accomplished harvesting what the late Fred Bear deemed as the toughest big animal to hunt on the North American Continent; then with just a stick & string to boot.

Well done man, I hope to accomplish the same one day, Lord willing.

Something to definately be proud of.

Deer hunting is a challenge no matter what you choose to hunt with but doing it with a traditional bow is, in my opinion, the most satisfying and personally rewarding. Congratulations, Jay, for taking on that challenge and being rewarded for you efforts. Best wishes for many more tradbow kills.
