Re: Popped my Cherry Yesterday!!!
Way to go! You will never forget the details of your first archery deer. Mine was in 1997 and I can still remember what the breeze was like that day and the feel of the deer's warm weight.
45 yds is pretty good distance. What was the BC on your arrows? Were the heads match kings or broadheads? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
As far as field dressing one, when I was about 14 and had never killed a deer I asked my youth pastor at church how to gut one out and he said "Just open him up and take everything out." To this day that is the simplest and best way I have ever heard it described.
Congratulations again on your archery kill!
The critters have to win every time, I only have to win once.
