Re: Tell us about your longest bow kill
Whitetail - 62 yards.
Was sneaking through the woods. Saw a doe approaching on a trail towards my direction (80 yards away). I stayed very still, mostly hidden behind a tree. While I was focusing on the deer that was still coming toward me, didn't notice two others approaching from a different direction.
I was not hidden from them, maybe they didn't know what I was, but they knew something was up. They ran a little ways away. This stopped the deer that I had been watching, she turned broadside at 62 yards. The doe did not know where I was, she was watching the other 2 and trying to figure it out.
I wanted to get a shot off while she was distracted and before the doe figured it out. I slowly drew back behind the tree, eased out so I had a clear shot and let it go. Ended up with a good doe and a highly enjoyed hunt.
