    I had middy out for another hunt today and boy was it a great one. We saw does being chased. One being bred. Turkeys in the field and a bedded coyote. And a dandy eight pointer i let walk right by that will be ready for next year And he was chasing this girl for a bit until i persuaded him to find another mate

    15 yards. Full pass thru. Hand forged single bevel broadhead. She didnt know what happened. And only bounded twenty yards. Then felt it and ran for thirty back past me until her legs gave out right in sight. It was fantastic

    Congratulations! Nothing like filling the freezer with organic free-range meat by a simple pull of the tickler! Any chance we could see a pic of the broadhead?

    Nice little whitetail man! I've always wanted to harvest one with my own tools but my buckshot is so damn devastating  the same ranges. Its nice not to have to track... at all.
