Hi, my name is Codie Brewer I am a 15 year old boy from Covington Indiana who has just shot his first deer ever. I harvested a awesome 15 point 175 pound record book hoosier buck with a bow at 19 yards. I took the buck on 11/10/08 at 5:00pm while hunting with my dad. The buck has not been officially scored yet but it has been rough scored in the 160's nontypical. I was using a Alpine Micro youth bow, with G5 Broadheads.

Hello my name is Austin Easley. I am an avid bowhunter from NE Oklahoma and have been shooting Alpine bows now for 5 years and am a happy customer. So happy in fact that I bought a new Silverado Sabre this summer. It's a great bow.

Thanks a bunch,
Austin

After I became so addicted to archery, Michael became determined that I should now hunt as well. Now, I was raised in a family of hunters. Both my parents hunted and most of my siblings hunted, and of course I married a man whose career is hunting. For some reason, I've just never felt the urge to hunt. It never really appealed to me, but Michael was persistent and I finally agreed to at least try it. After Alpine added me to staff and I got the pink Alpine Sienna, I got a little more excited about hunting mostly because I just thought it would be hilarious to kill a deer with a pink bow! I've been out a few times in the last couple of weeks without success. This weekend a friend of ours invited us down to his land to go hunting. We quickly called Michael's mom in Texas and got her to meet us halfway so that she could take the girls for the weekend. We were now kid free and off to a good buddies house to hunt. Saturday did not bring any luck at all. All I saw all day was one young little fork horn buck. After reviewing some trail camera footage Saturday afternoon, Michael built me a ground blind out of cedar trees (I don't like to be off the ground!) near a feeder that was getting doe traffic like clock work in the mornings. The land owner had given us the go ahead to take a doe, but make darn sure that it wasn't a button buck.

It was freakin' cold here this morning (for OK anyway)! It was 34 degrees with 20 mph winds, I knew it was my last chance to get a deer this weekend or else I might have wussed out and gone back to the warm bed, but I sucked it up and went anyway. Michael and I (I make him stay with me - he's been kind of a saint about all my girly ways) did not have long to wait. Michael and I were turned around messing with one of the cedar trees trying to fix one that had shifted and created a rather large opening in my blind when I happened to turn my head - HOLY COW - there was a doe at the feeder. My body was turned the wrong way for the shot and Michael was stuck in a position I did not think that he could see if it was a button buck or not, so I got the binos up to glass her and as I was bringing them back down, she caught the movement and spooked. She didn't go very far, just to the tree line. She slowly made her way back in and I had been working my way into position in teeny tiny baby steps everytime her head was turned away. Something spooked her again and off she went to the tree line again. She finally just walked out of the area. Good news was she just left, she didn't blow at us and she didn't freak out and run, she just exited the area.

About 15 minutes later Michael whispers "deer" and I turn my head and no kidding it seemed like there were deer EVERYWHERE! I started shaking like a leaf all over! I could see them moving in the trees, I very quickly counted 4 before I decided I had better be getting ready to shoot! I turned and as the first ones came past me I drew back while they passed where I knew I had a tree between us to cover the movement of the draw. Well, I'm drawn back and aiming on this doe and Michael whispers "button buck", but there's two of them and I don't know which one he is talking about. By the time we get it straight the button buck has moved in between me and the doe I was aiming at. I am STILL holding at full draw! (Thank God for that 75% let off) I am terrified to let down because I am afraid that my arrow will rattle on the rest and give me away. Then Michael says hang on here comes another doe. So as she came in I got on her and the second that she stopped moving I took aim and let that arrow fly! She was 25 yrds and quartering away. From competition, I've been trained to not watch the arrow so I don't move my bow until I hear the arrow hit the target. So I don't see where hit her or even if I hit her. I heard this loud WHACK! And I look at Michael and I am shaking and I am telling Michael I don't even know if I hit her (I was secretly afraid that I had hit a tree or something as loud as the whack was). He's laughing at me and high fiving me and telling me not only did I hit her it sounded like a great shot and he heard her run not very far at all and crash! We were waiting a few minutes to make sure that she was down before we went to look for her. I'm looking at the spot where she was standing when she was shot and I tell Michael to hand me the binos because I think I can see blood on the ground where I shot her. He says naw it's probably a red leaf on the ground. I looked through the binos and decided that he was probably right, it looked like a red leaf. When finally got over to spot to start looking for blood, I was saying HOLY COW! Look at that blood trail, the "red leaf" I had seen was red because it was covered in blood as well as most of the ground around it. We found my arrow and it was covered in bubbly blood so we were fairly certain that I had a good lung shot. She left a blood trail a mile wide. She only ran about 30 yards before she crashed into a small dry creek bed. I had hit her just barely behind the shoulder (a little farther forward than I would have hoped, but hey the results were still great right?) and the exit was through her front chest. I hit one lung and her heart before exiting! I was so proud to have actually killed the first deer I ever slung an arrow at! I'm so glad to have experienced this with my best friend and husband, it wouldn't have been the same without having him there with me when it happened See pink bows can kill deer!!!!

Thanks guys,

Julie
