I haven't been hunting really hard with the heat but I shot 2 mature does with my compound on 10/3. Tonight I had a few hours to hit the woods and with a south wind I headed to a spot I haven't hunted in years. The spot is a nice funnel adjacent to some power lines and covered in white oaks and beech along a tiny creek. I found a tree that would give me cover and good shooting lanes. At 5:30 I noticed two does across the woodlot and it looked as if they might circle down towards me. At 6:00 both made their way by my stand, feeding in and out of beech saplings. The bigger doe was going to pass me at 8 yards broadside. As she walked behind a tree, I drew... she stopped... I held for 10 seconds or so and she stepped out slightly quartering toward me. I knew I could skip the arrow onto where it needed to be. The shot looked perfect and I knew she wouldn't go far.

Congrats on the nice doe. I've been hunting traditional since I first started hunting in 1991and I still get excited shooting a doe. Been out a couple of times on long island but with the warm weather have not seen a deer yet.

Thanks everyone. It's been a great season so far with 3 mature does for the freezer. This year my daughter is 3.5 and really wants to be apart of everything, so that's just amazing

The bow I've been shooting is a Stalker Coyote FXT. 55# at 29" shooting a 695 grain arrow. This bow has put a lot of food on the table in the past 3 years. This is one of my favorite pics of guys bow

Wow. Skip. That's great getting your daughter out there. That's how my wife grew up. I'm looking at that first doe you got...HUGE. We too, do all our own butchering. Makes you appreciate the whole thing more. Mad Dog
