Quite a lot of activity in the St Johns area.
I shot over the nicest buck I've ever seen on Saturday night. He came in early and was chasing does all around, finally 45 min later he presented me the shot I want. Bow drawn, him quartering away a bit. A little grunt to stop him in his tracks, place the red pin right where I want it...release.....TWANG hits the tree behind him.
WTF! I'm thinking. It all felt so good. I wait a bit, go retrive the arrow. Beside myself at missing the shot. It wasn't until the next day that I realized it. The bow I'm used to has a red pin for the 10 yard shot, my new bow I have it set for 20. My brain must have ignored the other two pins and just found the red one because that's what I'm used to at that distance. I was holding for 20, he was standing at about 8, and it sailed right over him.
My grandpa saw him run by after I spooked him, said its the biggest deer he's seen on his property and he's lived there for 40 years.
This was the first arrow I've ever fired at an animal. Live and learn I guess.
