My day has started out Fantastic! I got my Buck with my Bow, right in my front yard, here in beautiful downtown Burlington! :) Now I need to get busy and gut it, clean it up, and butcher it. Fresh Backstraps for breakfast! Yum Yum! :)

;) :) :D

Yup! I was 80 feet up in the tree. ;) :) :D It took me an hour to climb up there. 5 miutes after I got seated he walked in right under me! ;) :) :D He didn't have a chance and he never knew what hit him! ;) :) :D

Next time, you should clean him up a little for the picture, LOL....

In Burlington you can easily get away with Bow Hunting if you are sneaky, quiet and do it before daylight from an 80+ tall tree! ;) :) :D

My arrow placement was not the ideal angle, but it dropped him with one shot and it was indeed an instant kill. He was already stiff as a board by the time I climbed down from the tree and cautiously approached him with bow and arrow ready just in case he was playing possom!

Those super large and extremely heavy arrows do the trick for me every year, but next year I think I will go to a kill on contact exploding tip broadhead so that I get a little better arrow penetration. ;) :) :D

As for the meat, it was a little bit tough to chew and it tasted a bit like a Pine tree, but I am going to enjoy it for a few months this spring and summer! ;) :) :D I ran some of it through my planer so that I could have some sausage made. ;) :) :D

Well, you won't have to add any 'filler' to that sausage. :-)
