Another recurve Buck down

Unread postby JerseyJaysTaxidermy » Sat Oct 28, 2017 10:25 pm

That's the text I got tonight at last light...

My dad had a 10pt he's been chasing this weekend with his recurve.
This morning it passed him at 25 yards, too far for his skill level.

Tonight it came back and at 15 yards he couldn't hit an opening long enough for a shot..

He gets out in the distance into a thick patch and my dad grunts a few times at him, but he ignored it.

15 mins later here come a high rack, at last light, and he smoked it! We were do excited follow the blood trail to his 2nd ever recurve buck (last week's 6pt being his 1st) only to find out it was not the 10 pt.. another high racked buck came in and he thought it was the 10 coming back..
Nice buck, but he was so upset to find out he didn't kill the 10 he thought he did. Now he's tagged out and looks like I'm gonna need to go shoot the 10 next week lol.

So in actuality... no 10pt down.
Just a nice 7pt.

Nice shot too!

After shooting a trad for a few times at the store I have to hand it to you guys.

It really takes a lot more skill to shoot trad let alone hunt with it.

We have a guy Santo at the shop who hunts and competes and makes it look easy. It is not at all easy.

Great buck and nice shooting.
