    nj doe down!

    Primal Fuel
    I shot a nice doe last night. double lung shot and the grim reaper razortips did their job. she trotted about 40 yards, stopped and stood for a second, and went down.

    Awesome job, bra. Where'd you hit her? I have some freezer space on standby. Don't stop murdering delicious bambis.

    my knee is barely covering the entrance wound. she was facing the direction that she is in the picture, and about 8 yards away. I was 15ft in the air in a treestand. so the arrow entered high, through the left lung, and came out low, through the right lung.

    I had to drop her off at the butcher last night. that was the first time I've ever had to do that. I couldn't stay up until midnight butchering, and its too warm out to let her hang overnight to butcher today. there will be a decent amount of meat though. 1 down...plenty more to go

    How many tags do you get up there? I'm assuming bow and rifle or shotgun.

    I had a similar shot Christmas last year, but I was 15 feet up in a guest bedroom window, and the doe was about 15 yards out. Also I had to put down my bourbon to steady the crossbow.

    in nj, you can only hunt deer with a bow/crossbow or a shotgun. no rifle hunting.

    I typically only shotgun hunt during the standard 6 day long season. for that, you're allowed 2 bucks. there are all sorts of extended/permit seasons, etc. but I don't bother. i'd rather bow hunt

    as for bow hunting: there are 3 separate seasons in nj. fall bow (from mid September through the end of October), permit bow (all of November and all of December), and winter bow (in most zones all of January through mid-February). for each season (in most zones) you are allowed 1 buck tag per season and you can kill unlimited doe.

    I remember that story. never a good idea to spill bourbon on a crossbow. good thinking!

    that's the plan. I actually bought a chest freezer a few weeks ago.

    I always feel a little bad getting a doe, but WOW do they test better sans testosterone.

    Last week I got my first buck of the year, a two year old I cannot imagine was going to make it through a bad winter. Tomorrow bow season opens in my home state.

    Haven't gotten a deer with a rifle in my life. Something feels unfair to take it from 200 yards.
