First Kill
« on: September 17, 2016, 06:34:27 PM »
Posted this in a few other spots but just saw this page. This is my first kill. I shot him at 20 yards. It was a heart shot and the arrow went straight through. We were able to watch him die as he dropped 20 yards away from us! I am so blessed to get to share my first kill with my dad!

Didn't know what you were talking about in the deer hunting page until I checked this out, Good job!!!
I do not hunt for the joy of killing, but for the joy of living, and the inexpressible pleasure of mingling my life however briefly, with that of a wild creature that I respect, admire and value.
