My first time out bow hunting and my first deer on the first day! Spent 5 hours the week before tracking deer trails, etc. My friend said he saw 6 deer yesterday so I asked if he wanted to go in the AM. Was out in our area for 30 minutes before I got this 8 pointer! All my gear is coming as you can see I'm not prepared gear wise, but a good hunt nonetheless!

Didn't anyone tell you that you can't kill a deer without $500.00 worth of camo clothing ?

Sounds like all your scouting paid off for ya. Congrats on a nice deer and getting your first one with a crossbow.:) I used to hunt with all my older friends when they were alive and we all dressed in liberty overalls and a red plaid shirt. It didnt take camoflauge to kill deer with our rifles. I think it gives you a little advantage getting them up close though. IMO it's more important that you pick the "right tree" with cover instead of just wearing camoflauge. Congrats again.:)

Don't you worry about "deer hunting clothes" too much. Ive killed deer wearing IZOD shirts and khakis.

Matter of fact, I'm in my blind right now wearing a pair of Merrell shoes and navy blue work pants. LOL
