It’s been a long tough season and the first one I’ve committed to 100% recurve. I have a couple hundred hours on stand and only two does from early season. That changed Wednesday. I took the morning off from work to hunt before this big snow storm that was pushing through and it paid off with a 4 yard shot!
Fantastic! Congrats on a well earned buck!
Way to stick with it, skipmaster! Your perseverance paid off. A big congrats to you on a great buck with the trad gear!
Awesome buck. Good job. Cool pics too.
Congratulations, looks like the wait was worth it! I am in the same boat, shot a doe the second day of the season, and now still waiting for a buck to show.
That's awesome. Thumbs up on the smiling pic too!
Congrats on a nice buck!
Beautiful buck. Congrats.

Congratulations on a beautiful buck. And I like the distance when you can get away with it.

Great buck anytime of the season! Very impressive late season!
Awesome! Way to stick with it for a very nice buck!!
Congrats...Awesome...like to hear more about "4 Yards"
Thank you everyone. I’m really pumped about this deer. I’m going to send the incisors out for aging, but wear indicates at least 4.5 years old. As for the 4 yard shot. I wish he was at 15 or 20 yards. 4 yards is a steep downward shot from 23’. I clipped his spine entering his chest. He came in right behind me, straight on and past my tree broadside at 4 yards
Congrats!!! The hard ones are the ones we treasure most.
Adam....you are talking about deer...right?
Skipmaster1 what part of NY do you hunt?
Any EHD down there this year?
Jdbbowhunter- my spots didn’t seem to get hit but not far from here was decimated
Great job and agree on the tough shot angle!
That’s awesome Greg! Congratulations and Merry Christmas!
