First velvet

Recommended Posts

Finally got it done on my first velvet buck.  After countless failed stalks and hours behind the glass over the last few hot summers, it came together.  It's funny, I like to tell myself that I'm gonna hold out for a bigger buck than my last (3x3 or better).  I was after this guys bigger 4x4 brother but after not being able to find him, this guy stood and presented a shot, and I couldn't help myself.  Some day I'll hopefully get the 4x4 I'm looking for, but it's just too much fun and rewarding to tag out with a bow.

I gotta say I was impressed with the sevr broadheads.  He was quartered away and I hit the last rib, with about 3/4 of the arrow penetrating on a 68 yard shot.  I watched him drop in his tracks after running 20 yards.  I have never shot a broadhead that flies as well as they do either.  Big thanks to my good friend Syd for guiding me in and being there to help out.
