  1. Recovered and hanging in the barn. I saw a body pass thu a small path a hundred yards away so I gave a couple of grunts and about five minutes later, here he comes. Circled my stand and stepped into a shooting lane at 24 yards. I saw the lighted mock disappear and the buck ran off. Texted a few buddies and they both came over to help track. Forty yards of blood and then nothing. We circled all around the spot and found nothing. I decided to search towards the creek and 85 yards away from last blood he was piled up. Single lung and liver. My first crossbow buck. Debating between a wall mount or a Euro only because it’s my first crossbow deer.

  3. Went out with my son this afternoon. We were in our stands just under an hour when he scored on this buck. I have nicknamed my son Lucky Chuckie. He seems to score every year on a nice buck with his bow. valoroutdoors.com

  4. We found the bolt I launched this moring.....this tree was around 100 yards from our blind. The deer was around 24 yards and the one blade had a single hair on it and no blood. I was aiming mid body and am guessing the mesh caused it to go high. Oh well that deer lives to see another day and we had fun this morning. Sent from my SM-A716V using Tapatalk

  5. Shot a smaller 6 at 8am. Quartering to me at 15ish yards. Arrow is covered in dark blood. Very little blood trail. Kicked him out of his bed after 60yards. Blood coming out both sides by the looks of his bed. He didn't spook to bad. No smell of guts. Thinking liver shoot. Backing out til this afternoon

  11. #Blindlife....@moog style! Beauty of a morning to be out. Had a tall racked buck sneak in behind us grunting 10 minutes after we used doe bleat can and lite raddle on the bag. He ended giving a 24 yard broadside shot but I had to shoot Tru a mesh window. I took the shot but I think the arrow tanked under him. No blood and he at first walked off slowly then after a few minutes bounded down a utility trail. We will look down that utility road when we leave. Had another buck close to 100 yards a little but ago before turning around...he was outside his ears.....and just now a pack of doe just walked thru with little ones. There were 6 total...and all together. Sent from my SM-A716V using Tapatalk

  12. Up, showered, having coffee with a sausage biscuit. Looking to shoot a buck today. That's the plan! Both bow and CB are loaded in the truck. Bow gets first dibs. This is the day a bunch of deer get hung up!!! Good luck to all heading out! Keep safe. Shoot straight.

  14. Well didnt have to go far for this big male. Let my dog out and scanned my field, saw this guy cutting across it. Grabbed my .204, and rabbit distress hand call and snuck my way towards my field. He was walking the edge of our field near a neighbors backyard whos lab was barking his head off at this yote. Gave some tasty sounding rabbit squeals and he started to head down wind of me, one more squeal and he stopped broadside. Good hit, he did his death spins then started running, he made it to the bank of our new pond and ofcourse rolled down the bank into the water... fished him out, soaking wet he weighed 54lbs, so guessing close to 50 dry which would make him my biggest yote.

  15. Had 4 flathead come by this morning. Half hour later, a shooter buck. No shot as he never left the thick stuff. Came out for an hour or so, and headed up in the back till dark. Couple dandy bucks spotted up here yesterday. Coming out of the thick bedding to the left. Putting phone away. Will check back later. Good luck all!

  22. What a great day, 5 bucks seen including 2 shooters and my number 1 target buck. After the morning hunt I moved a cam to where I thought he was coming from in the afternoons. Mind you I’ve been watching this buck for 2 years now and knew my new stand was in the area but wasn’t sure how close. Any way I need to move this stand about 50 yards and I’ve got him. He did get close today after I grunted him in to 50 but I over played my hand and he spooked and ran back the way he came. A stand move is in order and it should help me set up on this guy. Any ideas on age and score. He seems really big for a 7 to me and he was also a 7 last year The daytime pics are this year the night pics are last year Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  24. I've seen 8 doe and 3 buck so far. Passed on a 2yr old 8 watched him hound a fire and grunt like crazy for a while then about 15 minutes ago a doe came flying through with a 8pt on her tail and the second buck was huge definitely a shooter but no chance they were stopping.

  29. First time ever bow hunting with dad, he finally got a crossbow. I put him in a real good spot, I’m across the field as a lookout/ in a decent spot myself. 5 doe bedded out in the field just need to work their way up as they’ve done twice this week already.

  30. I get all of those especially the one where they think I'll become the one hunted by White hunters. I used to get funny looks just going into the gun stores or hunting stores to shop. They have this look like "No way this Black tatted guy is hunting" Or when people walk into my office and see some of my hunting pics on the wall ... Black and White gives this confused look and ask if that me. I'm like no, it's Mother Theresa. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

  31. Back in where I had 7 pt at 25 yards two nights ago. Good wind direction. Feels like Oct 6 not Nov 6 though. Hopefully buck comes up in trail this time not the mess in the bottom pic.

  33. so going back to nice big 6 point. Watched that buck zig zagging down 20' strip between woodsl edge and cow pasture. 100 yards nose to the ground, then 75, then maybe 65. I tried grunting him but no bueno. Now the funny thing happens. Doe must have jumped or crawled under the electric fence. He walks right into it.....could see his reaction and he didn't give af. He taked a few more steps like wth and then splays out on all fours crawling under it.I lol'd . He preceded to zig zag across the pasture not to be see again.

  34. 11/6 I was called by the father of a 12 year old hunter last night asking me to come track a buck his son shot at 250 yards. He said he suspected a gutshot because the buck hunched up at the shot and then walked away. They walked into the woods and jumped him from a bed 20 yards in. There was concern about coyotes and they wanted me to come out right away. I told them I’d be happy to come out, but not until tomorrow morning or we run the risk of really pushing him a long way. We met at 7:30 this morning and started in the field, but couldn’t find the hit site. We started checking trails and a few minutes later Luna showed me a few drops of blood and away we went. The nice 6 pointer was found only 170 yards away. The coyotes had eaten a small area of his rear end. I discussed the lack of ethics of such a long shot but it fell on deaf ears.

  35. Believe me been watching him thru the crossbow scope and he is 142 yds. I don’t have anything past 50 but sit here and look and wonder about shot elevation and he’s laying down no wind. It’s definitely crossbowed my mind but nah. After watching 6 i will hope he follows suit. Honestly it’s a beautiful morning and feel lucky to have the encounter. But as Bob Barker said….Cmon down

  41. Ok I'll add my recent experience. November 2nd unit 1C public land. Mid-high 40s in the morning in a clearing in some thick stuff near bedding. Doe comes in quick and have very little time to react but now I know the trail. 30 min later a very nice buck comes in. No time to count points but I saw the antler height and it was a shooter so I grab my bow, hook release, stop the buck perfectly broadside and make a 20 yard shot through the lungs mid body. Donkey kicks and takes off. Im shaking with excitement and adrenaline shortly after. Take down my stand so I can give him some little time. White fletching pink but by this time is 55 degrees and blood on arrow is dried up. Start looking for blood and nothing. I start to panic, is it liver, guts? Grid search for blood begins. Go farther and farther from arrow and still no blood, begin to fill with dread. Finally 50yards from the arrow I find a little drop with some bubbles. I continued to follow a very sparse trail of blood but there was bubbles so I was hopeful but the whole time I was doubting my shot placement. Finally after twists and turns through thicket I found him. Line distance on ONX was 98 yards so he ran well over 100 yards with a great double lung shot. Edit: I was about 12-15 feet up so not very extreme angle.
