Shooting a running Deer with a bow and arrow takes practice, and skill. Knowing the area helps a lot when trying to get close enough to make an effective shot. You can’t kill a Deer where he was, you have to kill him where he is going to be. This video link will show my son Eddie in the right place at the right time while he fills his buck tag opening day of our Wisconsin 2012  White Tail Deer season.

I was the driver and he was the shooter. The brush was so thick that I didn’t bother to carry a bow. The drive was half a mile long, and I had the wind at my back. I weaved back and forth spreading my scent as I went. I used no noise, and wanted to boost the Deer, but not alarm them so much that they came out with rubber flying. As I went I saw sign of bedded deer increasing,and I also found what I figured was a buck bed, which was still warm, with clumped up droppings. (Something I use to indicate a buck) When I found running Deer tracks, I stopped weaving, and stayed on the tracks.

The Deer ran right to Eddie, and he took the shot. If you listen to the video, you can hear the arrow hit the Deer, and the Deer hit the ground, It was a spine shot. Working as a team, archers can effectively take deer on a regular basis.
