I suppose I'll get this started. Good luck to my fellow Okies. This doe was taken Sunday evening October 2nd at about 7 PM. She went around 80 yards before expiring after a 20 yard shot.

... I might add that I'm using a TallTines recurve 62# and grizzly single bevel broadheads with a 525gr arrow.

Thank you guys for the congrats, my 1st with that bow and just my 3rd TRAD kill. Had 5 doe coming down same trail last Saturday but wind swirled, my 10 yr old grandson got his first, a nice 6pt, on Saturday youth gun hunt from the same spot.

Well this weekend was a good one! I got too deer, one doe which I got on film and one spike buck which I thought was a doe right at first light...didn't see the antlers until I shot. Happy for the meat but would have liked to have passed on him

This guy worked a scrape near my stand at 6:30 pm, then stepped into an opening 25 yards out, broadside, with his nose straight up in the air, I could not resist, hit him high, recovery took a while but with a little help from my son we recovered him about 2 1/2 hours later.

Nice ones guys! Oklahoma is getting some great bucks!

I shot this buck right underneath my stand on November 10th in Rogers County. He's my biggest in Oklahoma so far and just the coolest buck I've ever seen...I'm tickled pink. Good luck out there to everyone

First time on this site, but I just had to share my bow kill with everyone. Sitting on the ground next to a ceder and this guy came walking up with a doe. Saturday at 8am, biggest buck I've ever seen in the woods at 203 2/8 20 points,24 inches wide. Still waiting on officially score. Thanks for looking.

November 15th, 10 yard shot, then 30 yard shot, 30 yard recovery. Stopped this guy with a grunt on a dead run chasing a doe, then got him to come in to a rattle. First shot quartering away, thought I shot too far back cause he ran about 10-15 yards and stopped, so I put one in the pump factory. When I field dressed him, he had a hole through liver, both lungs, and heart. Wasn'tt gonna go far even without the second shot.

Nov. 13. I was hitting the rattling rack then this old guy showed up. He had over shot me by about 70 yards so now the wind was perfect. I grunted to get his attention and here he came. I noticed he was blind in the left eye so I felt confident I could get away with drawing even though he was basically coming straight at me. At 22yards with a quartering shot I put it through the front of his left shoulder and it sliced the top of his heart. The arrow didn't exit but hung up in the hide where it broke a rib. Didn't need to trail him. He went less than 30 yards. When I was skinning him I noticed he was club footed with only 1/2 a hoof on his back right leg. I know the only reason I got him is because he was a blind cripple.

This doe came in walking straight towards me while ground hunting a new spot and I took a frontal shot at about 8 yards, she went 60 yards and left a profuse bloodtrail. It's not a shot I would take on a whitetail from a tree or at any distance beyond 12-15 yards but if it is placed properly with the right arrow/broad head it is pretty deadly. This will be the 3rd whitetail I've taken with this shot and none of them have made it over 70 yards

11/23 @ 5pm this beautiful 11pt walks into my shooting lane at 15 yards. I draw, he pauses and the arrow flies. The rage hit him hard but I had to wait till the next morning for recovery.

Filled all tags this year, 1 in KS and 2 in OK, finishing up December 31 with this busted up buck. With only 6 points left, he grossed 120". Old buck. I was thrilled to get him.
