Congratulations to my Dad (Sr) and Eric on their success. Both of them put down a doe opening weekend of bow season in MN. This was the first bow opener weekend we hunted and it was a good time.
Sr shot a nice doe with his Ten Point Crossbow on Saturday evening about 4:30pm. She came in and give him a quartering away shot that would have been tough with a bow, but his crossbow was on target and put her down after a 50 yard run through the brush.
Eric has quite a story for his doe. Let's just say it didn't go down after the first shot....or the second. I will leave that story for him to tell. In the end we tracked her down and grabbed the second doe of the night on Saturday.
I had my chances but didn't get a shot I liked, so I held back. I still hope to fling an arrow or two before the gun season kicks off. So far I would call this a very successful year for us. It can only get better from here.
