7thson, congrats on the nice buck and also for doing it the right way at 70 years old yet.  A lot of 30 and 40 year old pansies who want to do it the easy way aren't half the man you are.  One thing I have noticed, while the cross gunners are getting a decent amount of deer, it seems the archers still have a pretty good hold on the mature bucks.  Can't buy ability.

Congrats to all, especially you 7th son. That’s quite a buck and I hope I am still vertical at 70, shooting a bow and a deer of that size would be a huge bonus.

We have a some newly converted crossbow guys in our neighborhood, ages 37-55, who are all able bodied but choosing to switch. A couple are using the bad back and shoulder excuse. If they didn’t see it as an advantage they wouldn’t be doing it. It’s legal, so in a way I don’t care, just why make excuses? Personally I have always seen it as a way for older and disabled hunters to keep doin what they love.

Managed to get my chance at this guy on 11-14 at about 1600 hrs . He was harassing the twin fawns of the doe he wanted , Double lung at 18yds and he didn't make it 30 yds before expiring ! Was considering a crossbow for my 70 year old body but....... think i'll stick with my Mathews a little longer !!

Not a Whitetail but a bow hunting report either way.  The Muleys were still rutting pretty good in North Dakota.  Was lucky enough to harvest this buck last week.  Congrats to everyone who had successful seasons.

Late report, success!!! Got it done November 18 at 8:30am! Nap killzone got 23" of penetration out of an old bow shoosting 455gr arrows @260fps! Left no blood trail but watched him tip over at 50 yds. Extreme quartering away. Busted off right side. Neck like a Buffalo. Tender viddles.
