Brennan,

Congrats Big Time! Excellent waiting them out… and you got your just deserts.

Sounds like some awesome shooting and tasty victual for the freezer!

I inadvertently shot a deer somewhat the same… came by, doubled back, only then I saw it had legal horns (back in the day) and I had one hole I cut in a hemlock to shoot thru where it went… I bleated, it stopped, and I released. Ticked a limb like yours, but the deer was only 10 yards from me and the twig only 2′ from the deer… but the deer did what deer do… crouched down, whirled to go back the way it had been safe and threw up it’s flag…I too thought I hit the right rear ham…

Deer ran off, and all I could do was listen… didn’t run far adn stopped…no other sound, but they can tip toe thru the tulips quiet like.

Turned out I’d made a perfect Texas Heart Shot with a bow! When it threw up it’s tail, whirled that arrow never cut hair… went it to the fletch and each step it shredded a kidney on both sides…dead in 50 yards…

Sometimes, luck is good enough…

Sounds like you had more than luck going for you… Again, Congratulations!!!
