    Default the Cheetah strikes

    earlier tonight,bout 9pm,i was out shootin in the yard. I switched from a single pin to a multi-pin sight last night.My old Montana Black Gold Dusk Devil. I drilled the pin guard and installed a light for night hunts. I'd just finished sighting in my 35yd pin,when dark was settling in. I had two more arrows then I was done. I nocked my second to last arrow,drew,and anchored. Just as I was about to release, a coon stepped from the brushline and started crossing the yard...right in front of the target. I couldn't believe it,so I adjusted my aim and released. Shooting right in front of the coon. I pulled my arrows and went in to get my kill light put on the Cheetah. I came back out equipped w two Harvet Time HT-2's tipped w Slick Tricks and went to wait at the back of the yard,taking stand on the old flat bed truck. It wasn't but 5min when I heard the weeds rustling. I hit the opening w the red filtered light and saw the coon. I drew back and released and that thing let out a mean snarl as it whirled back into the scrub. All went quiet and I went to the bloodtrail. It took a few minutes to find it in the tangle of weeds,cut brush and grapevines,but I got it. I'm guessing about 10-12lbs female.

    Athens-1
    Martin-1
    Coons-0

    I'm breakin in the bows good n proper for this deer season. Can't wait to stick a Trick in a deer.

    That has got to be hard on the Slick Tricks! They must hit the ground on an animal that size.

    not a mark on the ST and still sharp. I had unscrew the shaft from the head to get it out of a piece of 3/8" osb that the boys were using for their fort. No damage to the shaft or head. The coon was on a little bank that the board was laying on. The arrow went through the front right shoulder and exited out the back left leg and into the board.

    Must eat? Is there regulations that hunters have to?
