Shoot A Deer

Decent Essays
One of my most important personal goals is to shoot a deer with my bow. Preferably a buck but either with do. I’ve always wanted to, but now I’m ready to do it, and put lots of time in so I can achieve that goal. It’s not always easy to get a deer with a bow because most of the time the deer don’t come close enough. This year I’m going to prepare and plan out how to get a nice deer with my bow.
One way I’m going to get a nice shot is to put out trail cams and see where the deer are moving. This will tell me where to put my stand so I’ll be right where the deer are. I don’t want to be too close to their trail or they could wind me, but I have sent blocker that I can use. I have an idea where to put a great stand that should fill all my tags. It is on a hill that is surrounded by valleys. The hill is super thick with lots of cover for the deer to hide. Every time we do drives around our land the deer all run to the hill and hide. So last year in muzzleloader we decided to drive off the hill, it turned out to be a great drive. Many herds of deer came running out of everywhere and headed for the creek.

This has always been one of my goals and it will stay one till I achieve my goal. I don’t know why it's so important to me, it just seem like something I have to do. I have shot many deer with a gun, but that is just to easy. I need to practice my shots and make sure my bow is dead on. I also need to put up trail cams and see where the deer are moving so I can put up a nice stand. Then I need to have confidence in my shots to ensure that I make a good shot. Shooting a deer will make me very happy and I can’t wait till archery is in. Not to wish my summer away, but I hope it comes fast. The feeling will be great even if it isn’t a buck, as long as I get a deer it doesn’t matter to

    I hurry and grab my gun so I can finish off this beast. I leaned up against a tree, acquired a steady rest, found the vitals through the scope, and took my final shot. I will never forget the feeling of walking up to the deer and being able to hold his antlers in my hands. I knew my dad was proud of me, even though I made him stop hunting to come help me. The bond my dad and I share with hunting is unbreakable.…

    But then I saw the body of the deer start coming into view. I thought it was a doe because I did not see any antlers at first. But then when it past the bush and a couple of trees the antlers came out and buck fever started to set in for me. I immediately panicked and tried to calm myself down and just remembered what my dad always said to me. “Just relax, Close one eye and keep focused on your target.” I pulled up my gun to my cheek and looked down the sites with the deer in view.…

    Hunters made these laws to make sure there would be enough game for future generations. Hunters play an important role in management because they are one way to keep deer population numbers in balance.

My dad and I began going around the ranch a day before we went hunting, we looked around to see where the biggest deer’s were located. We tested and align the rifles, to leave everything prepared to go hunting the following day at dawn. We were very positive that we were going to be lucky enough to hunt a big trophy deer, tough the results we had were never crossed our minds.

    The deer drops and excitement fills my heart. My dad must have been really close because he came running to the sound of the shot and met up with me. He asked me if I hit i.e. told him “yes it 's down at the bottom of the hill” He gives me a fist bump and we head together down the hill.

    I barely made it ten before my dad gave in and we climbed down. Before we even left the stand, my dad told me to look for blood, which is actually what you’re supposed to do. We followed the same path the deer had taken. Right before the patch of evergreens, we spotted a bit of blood (probably the same blood I had seen from the stand). I desperately searched…
