Well this was my first crossbow hunt and I am 1:1. This doe is on the small side and nothing to brag about...Except in great eating. Which is what I was after. My three year drought was dragging on like a bad reunion or something. Glad it's gone and just in time with only a couple weeks in the bow season left. I was fortunate enough to be gifted a crossbow at Christmas and while they probably make the bow hunting purist throw-up. I have to say I like them and they do the job fine. I may do a post later on the bow. We'll see. Anyways. Just a few pics for this one of my spot and the harvest. The convex Redlore knife worked great in boning out the meat. It was the perfect size and the point was dropped enough it wasn't an issue. Couldn't have been more pleased with it.
The deer came up and was right behind that downed tree to the right in the below pic, and left in the above pic
Getting to work with the redlore!
I got it home and just got done butchering it up nice and in the
freezer. It was a great evening to take in and I am happy. This is
probably the smallest deer I have taken and it feels like the hardest
earned. Funny how that goes...
thanks for looking
