My doe kill...

Not sure there is ever much of a story to go with a doe kill, but I’ll indulge those that have been waiting to her about my latest success!

I headed out Thursday evening in the wind to hang my stand for Friday’s hunt. I hung in an area that Greg and I call “Kansas” which affords a great vantage point of an overgrown field along a ridge separating two thick creek bottoms. I returned bright an early Friday morning and walked right past two does in route to the stand. While I was getting situated, I spotted another doe shoot down in the creek about 100 yards out from my stand. Roughly 20 minutes later, I watched a spike feed around the point and within 20 yards of my stand, before disappearing into the opposite creek bottom. At 8AM, I caught movement coming from where the spike vanished and seen this doe heading my way. I decided that I’d take her if she gave me a chip shot. At 15 yards, she stopped quartering away and I sent a 425 grain Easton Axis complete with Slick Trick Magnum down through her lungs. I was just a touch high and caught the artery running along the spine in the process. She made it all of 20 feet before expiring. The arrow actually hit her so hard, that she landed flat on her stomach and she never recovered from the initial blow.

Not 5 minutes behind her, was the same spike from earlier in the morning. He proceeded to check her out for almost 30 minutes before moving off. I climbed down and through a tag on her, then posed her like she was bedded up. I sat until 10 that morning seeing three more bucks for a total of 4 bucks and 4 does for the days sit. It was a great morning on the stand and it felt great to get back in the flow once again!

Congrats Jesse!

I always enjoy hearing the stories of hunts. Sometimes it is a successful hunt, sometimes not. Sometimes that successful hunt is a buck, sometimes it's a doe. Whether the hunter comes home with a buck, a doe, or a memory, as an avid hunter, I always enjoy hearing the stories of other hunters.

Thanks for sharing.

Gotta love that spot. Hey, were you in the tree I shot my buck in last year? If so, did you happen to see my bow hanger? I can't find the dang thing, and that's the last place I used it. lol

BTW, good deer buddy!

Congrats!

Dang you pack all that stuff in the woods?
HA! We were joking about that yesterday. You gotta be tough and dumb to hunt like I do!!! Do I need all that shit? No. But I am 100% comfortable with how I'm hunting right now when I roll with that mobile set-up. In all seriousness, you need to have some resemblance of "shape" to you haul that shit in and out. With 30 pounds on your back and sometimes as much as 20 pounds in the pack if I am taking in extra clothes, you can't be a pussy and haul that shit 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile to hunt. I supposed I could carry an ultra light climber with nothing but my bow and release, but that ain't me. I love the comfort in my stand set-up and my pack, well it has everything I might need. And if you know me, you know I always pack heavy cause you just never know!!!

Besides, I prehung that stand on Thursday and drove the quad to the deer to pick everything up. Makes life a lot easier!
