Took my youngest son out for his fourth hunt of this season. At age 12 he started scrimping and saving and 2 years later bought himself a used crossbow.

We got to the farm about 1:45pm and because the leaves are wet conditions were perfect (silent) for a walk and stalk in the open hardwoods on the north side of the property. As we slowly made our way through the woods we found a scrape line around 3:30pm with 6 fresh scrapes and decided to hang out SE of the line as the wind was blowing from the NW.

We sat on the ground behind a massive downed beech tree that was the perfect height for a crossbow rest. At 4:07pm this nice doe came in and started checking out the scrapes. At 4:10 she presented a nice broadside shot at one of the scrapes about 25 yards upwind. My son took the shot and she did a nice donkey kick ran 55 yards and toppled in sight. We waited for 15-20 minutes and than tagged and dressed the deer.

The yellow tag is the tag we apply after the hunt to verify the kill for the game warden in case we are checked during transport. She ended up with a dressed weight of 118lbs on the hanging scale at home.
