  1. After 6 years I got my first my bear. Spent hundreds of hours in the stand waiting to cross paths with one and it finally happened. I had major eye surgery 4 weeks ago and almost went blind in my shooting eye. I was laid up for a few weeks and to come back and get him with the bow is huge for me.

  4. Good lesson. She was only 13yds crossing trail. Shot her while slightly quartering away walking and shot landed several inches back of what I expected. Still crashed in 50-70yds but won’t do that again. Bigger than I thought. Done till next sat.

  7. Sat my first watch of the year this morning. I have been skunked a lot recently during bow season and with two kids we really go through the meat. I saw antler and a big body and it didn't take long to decide even though it's opening weekend to pull the bow back. My kids and I really cut out some good lanes this year and luckily this guy walked right through one at 38 yards. I saw him coming slowly, he stopped just before the lane and I thought maybe it wasn't gonna happen. He then took about 3 more steps. He was quartering away ever so slightly but stopped perfect in the lane. I put

  9. Hopefully a doe is worthy of posting here as that's exactly what I killed yesterday morning. I wasn't on stand very long before a very respectable buck went by me at about 30 yards, too thick and too far for my taste. I saw another deer shortly afterwards in the same area as the buck but couldn't identify it. Maybe 30 minutes later a commotion straight east of me turned into a small 5-6pt buck chasing a doe like it was November 1st. Man was he dogging her........ Then maybe 20 minutes later this doe came by me accompanied by a couple fawns and a bigger adult doe. I shot the first

  14. After 4 hours with deer search last night we called it off on the buck yesterday. Very disappointing, hopefully he somehow makes it. Back at it this morning though, jjust shot a doe at 5 yards. I can see the blood trail from the Magnus from the tree and she dropped in 30 yards. Back straps on the grill for the Bills game! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  15. Here's my update from yesterday. First chance I've had to sit down. Coached my kid's soccer have in the morning, then home for a few quick chores. I was in a tree in 8h by 3 for the evening home. Forecast called for a SSE wind bit when I got there it was more ENE. Between that and realizing that this tree wasn't prepped for bow, I didn't like my spot. Decided to get down around 430 and slow hunt into the wind toward a better stand. On my way over I caught movement 300 yds away on the other side of the bean field. There was a small hill between me and a doe and 2 fawns. Rather than being smart

  16. Yesterday 10/5 was a perfect day to hunt but I decided to blow it off to do something else that is important to me. We have a favorite spot in the Adirondacks with a lot of history and decided since the forecast didn't look to promising for the upcoming days....some other upcoming obligations....the leaves at 80%, to take a day trip. It was a beautiful day with lots of color with some great scenery and good company. There are plenty of reasons to go but it could more than likely be the last hoorah for one of us so we couldn't pass up the opportunity to go and I don't regret it a bit. E

  17. Mixed 1lb of garlic/cheese bear sausage with 1lb bear burger, smoked them in my Camp Chef till they hit 150 degrees then seared them in cast iron till the hit 165 degrees. First bite I said "Why did I wait so long to hunt them" it was that good. Wife and friend loved them. I didnt add a thing to it, wanted to try it as is. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

  20. Went out for my first sit at around 1 pm. Didn't see anything but squirrels until just before 6 when a doe and fawn came in to my left. I was planning to take the doe since the fawn seemed to be big enough to make it on it own. I normally pass does with fawns in October. A minute or 2 later I heard deer running and saw a doe come in to my right. She was acting weird like she may have seen me move or something. Then I saw the buck. The buck followed the script and gave me a broadside opportunity about 18 yards. The arrow hit a bit high, but within a few seconds of the buck running of

  22. Well I guess that doe would have gotten a pass even if I decided I wanted to sling an arrow. I just realized I never put my release on...duh. Glad it wasn't a shooter buck

  23. Hi there, I know I never post in fact my last post was 2014. However I watch this thread all day every day. This morning was my first sit this year. I really hunt for the meat and not the antlers. I have gotten skunked on bow for a few years without even getting a good opportunity to shoot and I don't have a lot of time to hunt. Anyway this guy stepped into my lane at 38 yards just quartering away a hair. I tucked it just behind his shoulder. Hit the other side and he took off, watched the arrow snap off while he ran. Listened to him crash a few a few times and then heard nothing

  25. Feel like a million bucks right now. I passed up a Stateland bow buck from the ground, no blind, no facemask. Chocolate rack 3pt at 23 yds played the wind perfect. Took great video and some pics. Will post in my journal Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  29. So I had a interesting conversation with my wife last night. My mother in law passed away 3 years ago on October 10th. I will never forget that weekend. It was also the same weekend we closed on our camp. My mother in law was super excited for us and checked in with us throughout the process. We hunted Saturday with no luck. We knew my mother in law was very sick but did not think the end was this close. We got a call Saturday night that they were thinking of moving her to hospice but she was still fully awake and pretty much acting herself. Sunday morning comes around and pretty early that

  32. I had some beards laying around and finally did something with them. First I removed the shell case and primer from the shotgun shell. Then I glued wire and the beards inside the brass head and hung it up on the wall. Very simple but time consuming.

  34. Well my oldest son who is a senior in high school decided he didn't want to play football his senior year decided he wanted to bow hunt with me again. He did when he was in 7th and 8th grade but things picked up and time was limited to maybe 1 or 2 gun hunts. So we decided he was going to sit a new set I put in this summer where a decent 8, and a 6 have been pretty regular. At 5 my phone is vibrating in my pocket non stop. It's him dad I just shot at a doe should I get down are you coming no wait there are more deer and so on. I reply take a breath and relax sit down I'll be there shortly and

  35. Thank you all for your insight. I am truly proud of the man he is becoming. After his 3rd or 4th apology I finally said stop apologizing and he did nothing wrong and that anybody whose ever hunted has missed. I had to tell him that I was actually impressed by the fact he was able to even get 2 shots off and not give up his location. He truly wants his first deer so bad that I can't begin to describe it. I want it for him as well honestly it would be my best season ever even if I had to eat my own tags.

  36. Ended up seeing 2 doe a tiny fawn and a 6pt. Good time in the stand with my son. Walking out into our field, which was still very light out. My son was lookin at some bones left over from last years deer. I catch movement in the field and the tiny fawn is bookin it right at us, ended running by my son 5ft away. Then mama doe took the smarter route and ran to the end of the field and into the woods.
