    For the second year in a row, my sisters grandson draws first deer blood on our farm with this nice 11pt whitetail during Illinois youth season.

    F35A8BF9-D15C-44E9-8EF2-0BE4DB110836.jpeg I got this a few weeks ago. My first with a crossbow. I still prefer an upright bow but wanted to try one.

    You’ll notice it didn’t pass through. The broad head actually WAS protruding out the other side but upon review it hit the humerus on the way in, bent one of the blades, and that slowed it down significantly. Bent or not, it took out both lungs and severed the aorta. No complaints here. Except for the cost ($40/3), I’ll complain about that. I’m hoping to get another soon. I need four/year. After that, I stop hunting. I’m about filling freezers.

    I killed my first with a crossbow last year, and it trashed the broadhead and the shaft, but I did get a full pass-through. I'm stuck with a crossbow because I can't draw a string on a vertical bow due to a AK bullet that went through my forearm and left a 1.5" exit hole. Doesn't work right any more, so I'm lucky I have the option to use a crossbow. Me and Mrs Fl-NC can eat 3 deer a year, and I can kill 5 statewide per season. If I max out and get 5, I will be donating some meat to some non-hunting friends who aren't doing great financially.

    I can actually get six if I hunt them on the right days. And I could probably fill the freezers with three. If I get four, though, I can save more money buying less food at the grocery store. I completely understand your need for a crossbow. I also think if one prefers a crossbow then that’s all that should matter. I actually only got it so that I could lend it to people not yet strong enough to draw an upright bow. I needed to know it would work before I would hand it off to someone. It took me three years before I got a chance to test it myself.

    Abert’s squirrels. They are great, one of my favorite game animals to eat.

    I still want to try squirrel.
    I spent some time shooting them out of my uncle's garden, but they were very small, and he said they weren't good to eat. Admittedly, a little common dove was probably bigger than his squirrels

    First deer with a crossbow. Complete pass through, in about the last minute of shooting light. Easy track in the dark, good blood trail, only went about 30 yards.

    I took my grandson back to Upstate New York where I deer hunt for a week the end of Sept. And the first week of Oct. Took him our squirrel hunting and he shot his first game animal.

    Took this gnarly mule deer at last light about 1,200 vertical feet above the truck in a roadless area. A whopping 77y shot with the 06 (180g Accubond) dropped him instantly.

    High country deer so the meat is excellent.
