Wife's First Deer (pics)

Postby BOHNTR » Mon Jan 02, 2017 7:58 pm

My wife (Anne) started the New Year with her very first deer in Arizona. She stalked in on him as he was bedded with his 6 does. When he got up, she sent an arrow through him at 45 yards. It was just before dark, and the hit was a liver shot, so we decided to back out and trail him first thing the next morning. When we found him she was PUMPED! My grown kids got to come for the recovery.

Congrats to your wife on her first deer and what sounds like a great stalk!
It ain't the size of the gun but the placement of the bullet.

This is her first year in about 25 years (when kids were born).

It just doesn't get any better than that.
Congrats.
Live to hunt, hunt to live.

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell
the difference.
