      I was fortunate to have harvested a six (6) point on my first archery hunt with my new Diamond Black Ice bow.

          As I remember I hunted for 4 or 5 years before I ever got a shot but back then the deer population in the south was not nearly as great as now. Good excuse huh?

            Killed a doe with a very lucky shot first time out in 1973, Ft. Benning, GA. My arrow cut both Achilles tendons.

              I have to admit, it took me a few years. Had a couple clean misses, right over their backs, made me change my technique. Now i follow the front leg up to the target instead of coming down from the top of back. Buck fever didn't help. Lately i've been very successful.

                It took me two years before I got my first deer and I have yet to get a buck with my bow, but I haven't given up.

                  It was my first time out in my second year. Took a nice fat doe, and boy did she taste good!

                      I was buck hunting only at the time, or i'dve probably scored a lot sooner. This year i'll take a doe for the freezer right away and hold out for a Wallhanger. Have killed a few decent bucks with my bow, but the Good ones on my wall are rifle kills. Hope that'll change when i go to Ohio in November.

                        The first month I hunted, but like steve182, I also would have bagged a deer sooner if I hadn't been strictly a buckhunter at the time.

                            I got a nice 8 pointer my first time, but I've been on a 3 year drought now.

                                That's a nice project! Have you tried the 6.5 Grendel and if so, what's your opinion of it?
