This was my third year bow hunting, and I got my second kill on saturday! It's definately rut. Had a buck chasing a doe right by my treestand. He's not the one I got, mine was a small 4 x 4. It wasn't a great shot, but I severed his spine, paralyzed his back end. Had to cut his throat. Wish it were a better shot, but he is in the freezer. That's the ultimate goal, right? I'm going to work on my shooting more. Does everybody have to mentally tell themelves to quit watching the deer and to focus on that dang sight pin and to actually use the peep sight? I swear, I had to tell myself to use that dang sight and to focus on that pin. I did, but I think I pulled the shot, that would be why it was high and to the front of his sholder instead of where it was supposed to be. I think I had a little bit of buck fever, cause after he went down, I sat in my tree and just shook for 10 minutes or so.... DH got one too. He of course had a perfect shot. Guess experience shows.
