Another great weekend at the D & B. Noons, Andy, Mark and I headed down there Friday night and hung out for a while. Got up early Saturday morning and went hunting. I had a little spike walk through but that was it. Noons dad saw 3 doe cross a field but they were to far to get a shot. After a long day of working and fishing and just hanging out, Mark had to leave and the rest of us all went back out. Just before dark I had a doe walk up towards the feeder by the stand I was at. I was able to get a shot on her, but was worried that I had shot low. I went down and saw my arrow covered in blood. I went and got noons and the guys and we started tracking. about 5 minutes and 100 yards later we found her. The shot started in the shoulder but because of the angle, passed right through the lungs, making for a quick clean kill. I was really happy about that... I don't want them to suffer. We took her back and cleaned her and had a great time... all 3 of us passing out by 10:30. We couldn't of asked for a better weather. Everything just fell into place. Thank you God for your wilderness and your creation. Thank you for the thrill of the hunt and the joy of the kill.
