Sweet ... congrats on a beauty.....  especially with the bow.

I was in Allegany County in SW NY and the guy across the street from us shot a monster 11 point ....   scored 150ish or so. It was a similar situation with numerous trail cam sightings and they even found sheds from him but had never seen him live. I have pics but have been sick as a dog and havent felt like dealing with posting them but will soon.

My only thought when i saw it was what a shame it wasn't a bow kill ........  the guy shot it on the run, broke its back or spine or something and then had to put it down.

Every year around this time after a couple days with the gun i realize how much i like bow hunting  8)

Do it .... you'll be glad you did  ;)   ......   it is a completely different experience ... not to mention it allows you to hunt areas you can't with a gun.

I live in suburbia ......   in a shotgun zone...  1/4 mile away is the line for a large bow only area so even during gun season i spend most of time in the woods with the bow .....  more deer, less people and a better shot at a trophy. Beyond that once gun opens the majority of the bow hunters disappear  :o
