    Good for you on your new bow. I got a new one from my kids for my birthday in November. It's an awesome gift and your going to love the extra time in the field with it.
    Bows have their disadvantages though when it comes to hunting whitetail deer that you may not be aware of if you've only ever used a rifle.
    Some have been mentioned already but i'll make a list. I'm sure I'm forgetting some.

    -Trying to get a deer inside of bow range.
    -Quickly and accurately guesstimating yardage inside your bow range.
    -The arc of an arrow requires a larger window for a clear shot.
    -Hitting the smallest branch can greatly change the course of your arrow.
    -The ability of a deer to react and move on the sound of the shot and the sound of an incoming arrow.
    -Your bows limb clearance from touching any branches, ground blind walls, etc. during a shot.
    -It requires a more stationary target more often than not.
    -Wind effect, both for arrow flight and scent control inside bow range
    -The heightened sensitivity of noises you make inside of bow range.
    -The heightened sensitivity of movement inside of bow range.

    Despite all these limitations, if you know them and prepare for them, it can be just as rewarding as rifle hunting.

    Fortunately for you, being a deer hunter, you likely have woodsmanship and tracking ability under your belt.
    Both of those assets will become even more essential when trying to recover a wounded whitetail with a bow.
    That's because everyone of the disadvantages I mentioned, quickly become advantages for a wounded whitetail to allude you if it has mobility.

    Most bowhunters will tell you that a whitetail is the most elusive game animal to shoot with a bow. Trying to get a secondary shot on a mobile deer that knows you're coming is on a whole different level. Its the main reason bowhunters strive to make their first shot count.

    Hope that helps. Enjoy your bow and i hope you get a deer with it this fall.

    You're only as good as your first shot of the day. Know your limitations and make it count.
