MY BOWHUNTING CHERRY!

Postby chinagreen » Sun Sep 20, 2009 1:01 am

I am a bowhunting grummy.  I first picked up a bow in April of this year.  Since that time I have completely emersed myself in bowhunting Whitetail Deer.  I have shot every 3D event I can enter, Shoot every spare minute I have from a treestand in my yard.  Sold my hockey, boxing, lacrosse, afew handguns that I don't shoot very often, any spare motorcycle parts I had laying around (ALOT), and 2 full suspension mountain bikes with all the mechanics tools, to support my new passion.  I have read everything I can get my hands on, 3 books, countless magazine articles, and hundreds of hours online to help better educate myself.  I put together multiple properties to hunt.  Tons of hours scouting on foot and by trail cam.  Spent the months of July and August setting treestands.  Basically I have lived, breathed, ate, and slept deerhunting since April.  These photos are the fruits of that labor.  I will try again with the photos.  I tried 3 times.  [email=F@#$%&*G]F@#$%&*G[/email] computer.  Anyway the majestic beast dressed at 199LBS,  8 pointer (138 to 143 class), roughly a 5 year old.  After the shot  I sat and vibrated for 20 to 25 minutes.  My hunting buddie came down and raised his fists in triumph and stated firmly "look at that pig."  When I got down from my stand is when the full realization hit me of how big he really was.  I was 22 feet up in a swamp maple.  And honestly I concentrated on the vitals and a good clean broadside shot not the 8 point he turned out to be.  A one word summary of the whole enchilada is BEAUTIFUL!  It took Johnny and me 4 HRS to get the awesome animal processed and in the freezer.  Best venison I have ever eaten.  Taken September 16, 2009 5:30 p.m.  BEAUTIFUL!

Congratulations Chinagreen! Great story(look forward to seeing the pics), my favorite part was the line, "After the shot, I sat and vibrated for 20 to 25 minutes"! I think we've all been 'there' before (I know I have, thank God for saftey belts). Congratulations again brother!!
