Took the button buck with my bow. After about a month of hunting he was the first thing that got within range. Kind of sucked, I had seen some real monsters for my area but they were staying out of range or moving after dark.
I thought he was a doe, there were 2 that came out together. I hit him broadside from 25 yards and spined him. It pinned him to the ground and he was thrashing around a little bit so I shot him a 2nd time through the lungs. Thats the lower wound. Used a Bear TRX300 bow and 100 grain muzzys on easton raider arrows.
The 2nd one actually is a doe, I took her yesterday on the opening day of muzzle loader season from the same stand as the button buck. Used a Lyman great plains rifle I built from a kit. Its a .54 caplock, slow twist. Load was a .530 hornady ball in .015 patch over 90 grains of pyrodex select. She ran about 20 yards and flopped over.
Fix it right the first time...
