First one with a bow. Had a lot of game cam pics of turkey the last few months so decided to sit in the blind and give it a try the next trip to the ranch to fill feeders. Got to the blind slightly before daylight. About 15 minutes later I had a few deer come in. A few minutes later 3 hens came in and then a few more with a couple jakes came in shortly after that. I started to get antsy and was thing about shooting a Jake but decided to wait since I could hear more off in the distance. Not Long after this big guy came strutting in. He joined two deer under the corn feeder about 20 yds away. The deer immediately moved off to the protein feeder leaving me a clear shot. I came to full draw as the bird was facing directly away from me. Seconds later he turned to the right giving me the perfect slightly quartering away broadside shot. I let the arrow fly and he dropped in his tracks. I couldn't of been happier.

Thanks. Yes I was excited to say the least to get it with the bow. The shot was right at 20 yds and it was DRT.
