First Trad kill and Bow kill

Postby Safo87 » Thu Oct 10, 2013 10:52 pm

On October 5th my dad and I went on a weekend bow hunt on some land we have access to near Roll, OK. We hunted from the ground in some ghillie suits we made. We smoked our ghillie suits in the camp fire to see how that really worked as a cover scent. I am a believer that it works because we had deer all over us. I had 10 does within 20 yards of me and I shot this doe at 8 yards. I used my Samick Deermaster 45lb recurve I won at an archery shoot last year and used some GT Blem 3555 with a 125 grain Zwickey broadhead. I can tell you that I am definately hooked now. I have killed many deer with my rifle and muzzleloader but this was the biggest rush in my life! Im not real sure how to post a pic but I will give it my best....

Congrats on the deer ! Any deer is a trophy with a bow.
You might try to open one of those free photo bucket accounts. I can't see the trophy you killed, all I see is a blue box with a question mark in it.

Congrats on the deer. :applaud:
now let's see if we can get a pic up.

below the reply box is a " upload attachment" tab. click it.
then you will see a 'browse' and add file.
after you add file, click a box that says 'place in line' or something like that.

to me this works better than photobucket. you may get a "verify you're not a spam-bot" question, just answer it.

A big congratulations there Safo! Nothing like the first to get a man hooked for life. I grew up around Roll and Cheyenne. There are some great hunting grounds out there. Where are you and your dad from? I still have family in Elk City and Durham. My boys and I get out that way and hunt a couple of times a year.

Congratulations on the trad deer. That face looks familiar! :D That is a great place to hunt. I'm working in that area right now on a new powerline they are building to Erick. Now, you have to get Dad a deer.
Way to go- I need to get out more now that the weather is cooling down. Good looking bow.

Congratulations on your first. I would like to hear how you made your ghillie suits, that's pretty cool. My son-in-law thinks the smoke from a campfire spooks dear and won't listen to reason.

You mentioned smoke. I have shot so many deer while smoking that I actually smoke on purpose anymore. Firm believer that smoke of any kind attracts deer.
