Got my first recurve deer!

Recommended Posts

Got my first recurve deer! Man was it exciting. 7 pointer shot with a Herters Perfection Sitka. Thanks to TANJ for the guidance on the journey. (Traditional Archers of New Jersey) & UBNJ for protecting the sport we love!

 

Shot on private land.

Great job, Mark!  That is definitely on my bucket list one day!  I shot recurve as a kid, but never hunting, just target.  Any deer you kill with a recurve is a major trophy.  My hat is off to you.

I have to get back on my 48# Rampart Recurve, thanks for the motivation... Congratulations.   What BH did you use?  I have 175gr Wensel Woodsman's to use when I feel I am proficient enough.

JHbowhunter I used the Muzzy Fred Eichler Phantom Screw-In Broadheads. I did not have the insert in so they are 125 grains. They did a nice job!
