I have always been a gun hunter but this year I tried a bow at the persistent nagging of Aftercats and Bmaultbay. I was hunting a harvested cornfield behind my house and managed to shoot a doe at 40 yards. I can say it was all luck since the experienced bow hunters say a 40 yard shot is not a typical shot. I feel blessed to be so lucky. I had been hunting the back corner of the field where the deer had been going into the woods. After allot of mistakes for a first timer I had a shot at a doe at the 10 yard range. I shot and hit high in the back and could not find her. I searched the whole area with no luck. Now that I was disaapointed about loosing her I headed back to the house. As I was approaching the back of my property I noticed a doe in the middle of the field. I eased my way down the easment and watched her. As I was standing there I noticed another doe coming at me with allot of curiousity. I set the stand on the ground and took a knee. She continued to watch me and at 40 yards I placed the 40 pin on her back and let the arrow fly. I thought I had missed until she ran about 35 yards and collapsed. The arrow had pierced both lungs and now she is in the freezer. Thanks go out to Bmaultbay and Aftercats for pushing me to pick up a bow. I am definetly hooked now. Good Luck to all of you this season.
