Congrats Did you get her age? I may be wrong but she looks young. Bet she will be good eating

Yes she is young ...field dressed 90lbs and she had a button buck with her...her milk sac was nearly dried up....
Yesterday morning I had 42 deer sightings between light and 11a.m...9 were buck and I passed on 7 buck all young.....yesterday evening this doe and buck fawn were the only deer to show up....she presented a shot I took it

Badgie, did you take that from your new shooting house? Nice shooring by the way. :)
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

Very nice MsBadger. Good shooting.

Thanks guys....and no ...I shot her out of a hang on I put up 4yrs ago...just 70ft in front and off to the side of the new blind....I knew that the deer would be some what leery of the blind the first year....and it really is for bad weather and mostly gun.....;..the hang on is a great stand but you can only hunt it on calm days due to wind swirl and it's in a skinny tree...It was a perfect afternoon to hunt it and the deer stayed out in front of it...

That's some great yardage shooting. Is that a drop away rest I see on your bow? And what make bow? I can't tell what kind of sight you have.

It's a Quad ultra...and A new Mission by Mathews the 2011 Venture...I shoot instinctive so no sights ....which is the only reason I think I got her....I practice at all different yardages after getting my initial 10...15...20...25..30 points down....I held on target as normal even though I thought the distance was closer..25 or so....practice as I do and from a stand as well as ground just sorta locks me in ...only problem I have is remembering NOT to grip the bow...missed a doe that morning due to a 4 wheeler...yelling...fawns under stand ...by the time things settled back down again my concentration was less then stellar and I forgot...shot flew true just 5-6 in front of her chest...I was gripping :oops:
