I got my first archery deer on Sunday. It is a young nine pointer. Probably a 2.5 year old. This is my first season archery hunting. Indiana just opened up all the archery season to crossbows. I bought a Kodabow Bravo Zulu model. It is a recurve with 200 pound draw. I missed a deer a on Oct. 28th and discovered my left limb was broken. Contacted Kodabow in PA to get replacement parts. Unfortunately hurricane Sandy had shut down air traffic and Fed Ex would not be able to pick up from them until Wednesday. Thankfully the parts arrived Friday afternoon. I had time to repair it and get it sighted in that day.

The shot was 27 yards downhill. I hit him high and the arrow stuck in his spine. That kept him from going too far, but I had to put a second arrow in him to finish him off.

Everything turned out great. An interesting side note is that his rack matches the big nine pointer I got last year on that property with my shotgun. They may both be from the same gene pool. Possible father and son in consecutive years. Who knows. The season is off to a great start. Now I need to fill my doe tags and take my dad and son hunting.

Good luck!

punched my Iowa tag tonight! I passed this deer when he stepped out at 51 yds from behind the small cedar he is laying in front of. I drew back on him just to see if i could pull it off.( it was dead quiet in the woods tonight) then to my surprise he turned and walked to the tree that is left of center of the cedar he is laying in front of. that`s where i was the whole time sitting at full draw. and at 15 yards well he looked alot better then. Most efficient kill shot i have ever made both lungs and the heart. he ran back to where it all started slammed head first into a small tree and slid to where he`s laying.

Nice job! It's always great when you get to see them go down.

What county are you in again?

The whole hunt was just plain luck, I never rattled or grunted, Just happened to be in his path at the right time. If he would have kept walking I still would have passed on him but he stopped, I was sure that the track job would be short, not that short, but it was a bonus. It helped me get him in the freezer by midnight.


BTW This was in madison county public land was full up at 2pm yesterday.

very nice Buck! I still have one more any sex tag available this year time to start holding out for higher caliber deer.

Hey JPH I know for a fact there is at least one very nice buck left in madison county, he almost made it a double for me while i was glancing down at my phone, when i looked up there he was in the ditch, way better buck than what i had in the truck. it was somewhere around 120th on Earlham road. so there`s still hope for late season.
