    Default 1st buck with a bow!

    I decided to get into bow hunting this year and purchased the new Onza 3. I had some issues with the trg/sos, but it was an easy fix and I fell in love with the bow. We had some nice trail cam pictures at the bow stand, and I was really pumped to get in the tree! Season opened Oct 1st and the weather was beautiful. I didn't see the buck the first day (although I did see deer), but at first light the one I had my eye on showed up. When I went to draw I didn't didn't know there was a deer behind me, and it must have had an eye on me as I pulled the bow back. The buck spooked to about 45 yards (by this time it felt like I was going to have a heart attack) and I didn't follow through on my shot. I ended up shooting just under the buck, and I'm pretty sure it laughed at me as it trotted off. I had the last laugh though. He came back about 5:50 pm that night all by himself, and from the same direction he ran to earlier that morning. He came right in to 20 yards, and I was able to draw on him with no issues. I put the pin on him and it was all over! He went about 70 yards.
