So....

I realy don't want to tell ya'll this, but friends are friends through thick and thin. Let me just say this time it was not all me. The 8 pt just had to stand in front of that persimon sappling (the one so small you couldn't see it past the 100'' of antlers!) at 15 yards. I losed an arrow, ya'll know the rest of my typical story. Nuff said. He's hit but will live another day.

Unfortunately that's part of bowhunting.  :sad: If anyone ever tells you they never missed, they're full of crap.  :idiot2

Dude you did the same thing last year didn't you, minus the tree?  I'm not going to lecture you on bowhunting, but you may want to rethink things. ???  Sounds like you may have a mild case of target panic.  You should probably look at getting it under control before you shoot at any more deer with a bow.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Amen, BC. It is not full on target panic, since I have taken like 3 does now and a number of hogs without any incident. The hogs don't even make my heart skip a beat, but the bucks :shock:. I watched this guy for about 10 minutes, and I was still going crazy, but I was confident that I had my nerves under control enough. I was doubley confident, also, remembering last year. I wasn't going to take another shot on a buck unless I was confident he would go down way sooner than last years 10 pt. My shooting and nerves have gotten so much better since last year, I just missed seeing the little twig. I'll be shooting more 3-d in the woods this spring, though and I'll also hopefully remember these hard-learned lessons next year...next year I bust out the 30-06! :twisted:. Thanks for the sympathy, ya'll. Any year now, any year now and I'll get a buck on the wall or quit deer hunting and stick with hogs.
