Story: I was hunting 30 yards in the woods just off a recent clear cut. I heard what sounded like a deer walking so I picked up the old ten point crossbow expexting a doe and when it stepped out it had horns!!! My heart about jumped out of my chest and I had to calm myself down! Walked to about 15 yards and even looked at me once I guess the camo was pretty good. Turned and I shot it a little high and back. Called a buddy and we trailed it for about a half a mile. I got pretty concerned at times as blood got thin. When we found it the deer had made almost a complete circle. My first kill with my crossbow and first on opening day!
