Nice start!!! It's unlikely I'll get any deer this year unless its a cull spike or something like that BUT my cousin is showing me pictures of dozens and dozens of wild hogs around his penned off corn feeder (we can use feeders in TX) and bugging me to come take as many as I want.
Other good news!! I just got my new 6.5 Creedmoor back from Savage. I sent it in for a tight chamber. They confirmed, reamed, polished, tested, and sent back!!!

Looks like I'm chambering multiple rounds with ease and in rapid chamber testing too! I'm going to run a day/night digital scope on it just incase I need to take pigs day or night :D

Also looking to get my new 308 ready as well. Initial handloads showed promise. I think another session or 2 at the range and I'll have about 1/2 inch groups at 100yds. 6.5 load development still needs some work though.

Man I'm so EXCITED to hunt again!!! Great post indaswamp indaswamp !!! :D

The deer wheeled down and away from him at the shot @27 yards. So the arrow entered a little farther back and higher than anticipated. Still caught the liver and one lung. Deer only ran 60 yards. Cousin started tracking for 40 yards but only found drops because of the high shot, then blood trail ran out. Called in the tracking dog just to be safe with the kid shooting. Dog found it in short order....they were 20 yards from the deer when they stopped trailing. But, he probably did the right thing with a kid behind the bow.....
Deer was on the ground 2.5 hours before the dog found it. Coyotes had just found the deer and took a couple bites out of the hind leg and the exit wound. Not much loss though.

That's awesome!!! I bet he was thrilled!
Taking a deer with a bow is no easy feat and a that age it had to be super exciting for him and hopefully he gets to process too now :D
