So, I've never bowhunted before, nor have I ever shot a buck worth mounting. But I picked up a Hoyt TurboHawk at a pawn shop recently and decided to give it a try.

I only had to work in the morning on Christmas eve, so I got in the tree stand around 1:30pm. I had a small buck that didn't meet AR's come in and feed for a few minutes. A little later a couple of does showed up, but they came in from downwind and busted me.

Then, around 5pm I looked out and saw another doe coming from about 250 yards away...then I saw this buck trailing her! She slowly made her way to the feeder and he stayed 20-30 yards behind her the whole way. He finally gave me a shot at about 25 yards and I put it right through his heart! I waited for the longest hour of my life before tracking him. I found my arrow with good blood, but no blood trail to follow. I was kind of worried so I went to the edge of the trees where I last saw him and there he was! He only ran about 75 yards.

This is definitely a Christmas eve I'll remember for the rest of my life!

Absolutely nothing better than that instant you see the white patch on the ground or the antler sticking up when facing uncertainty in the tracking process.

Congrats, amazing first bow kill.
