Awesome !!! Congratulations!!!!
I saw nothing tonight. Wind was shitty and hard to set up for. Tons of shooting going on around the area. One so close I about jumped out of the climber. Headed back to tried and true, moving with high hopes landed me nothing.
Haven’t shot a “shooter buck” since 2013. But always try to eat first.
Oh I got fucked too. @ 4pm That fawn cam back up after feeding next to my pop up. As she was near me, my neighbor that I had to listen to his leaf blower & tractor mulching yesterday fired back up. After an hr, the leaf blowing ended. Low & behold, that big buck with the doe from earlier this morning came back off the hill. They were still up on the old oil well road & into my other neighbor ( that neighbor ) upper corner & they were once again headed my way. As they were starting to make their way down, the other neighbor with the tractor came up on his backside to mulch. That pushed both deer farther along the road ( it's not really a road ) up behind me where I couldn't see them anymore, so I don't know where they went. The deer are use to all that & I did see some more, but I can't hear anything with all racket. Then another neighbor got in the act & he continued mulching into the dark... as other deer were running around & I couldn't tell what was what.
With all the whining I wanna do, I AM in a really good spot like I've never been before, so each day is an adventure.
Thanks guys for all the congrats. It was an amazing night. We only had a half hour and I was planning on just sitting and enjoying my time with my son. But then a doe came flying in with a buck behind her. She started our way then veered off. He continued towards us but then started to follow the doe. I voice grunted which stopped him (behind a tree of course), and he wouldn’t move. My son decided to voice grunt, which admittedly miffed me at first. Apparently if confused the buck. He stepped out at 35 yards to see what the noise was. He then looked like he was going to head to where the doe went so I told my son to take a shot if he was ready. God definitely blessed his arrow… Right through the heart. Deer ran 30 yards and collapsed. Check out the girth!
