Angie Ward, Madison. Taken in Jefferson County: I started hunting with my husband 8 years ago and decided to start with compound bow.  My husband told me when I started that I picked the hardest thing to start with. I spent days and hours practicing,  but couldn't seem to get my stars to align in the woods.  I had a few missed shots over the last 8 years, but never gave up.  Well this year the second weekend of archery my stars finally aligned and a really nice mature doe showed up perfectly broad side 35 yards straight down the hill from my ladder stand. I slowly got my bow hooked on my release and stood up and took a really deep breath and released and it was a perfect double lung shot.  She only ran about 50 yards. I have taken bucks during firearms season but my doe with my compound bow means more, because I never gave up.

The quickest hunt I've had in my 40yrs of hunting. 15 minutes in the woods!!!!! 136" gross 8pt
