    Well maybe I wasn’t stupid for sitting through the frozen rain after all. He came sneaking out at about 4:15, I was seriously thinking about quitting a few minutes early as I am leaving for a work trip tomorrow. I took one last look around and wo now. About 80 yards with the 7mm mag. Dressed out 160 pounds. Just got him hung up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I'll write up the full story later. Still trying to settle down. Basket case of emotions today. The long story short on this buck.... I missed/hit a tree 2 years ago. Didn't see him last year. Had an arrow deflection this year and hit him in the ham. Saw him alive a week later. Dad "Duke" finally put the old boy down this am. I can honestly say I'm happier he got him than me. He deserves it. 71years old and laying em down ! Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    Not live from the woods but it’s the first free minute I’ve had....I made a poor shot on a bruiser around 9:25 yesterday morning. I left him go till 3pm then went and found him. I’ll type up all the details later on when I can use my computer and not the phone. He could be my best buck ever.....dressed at 205lbs but last night laying in bed I remembered that after I got the stomach and lower parts out I forgot (my mind was on how in the heck I was going to get him out in daylight) to pull the heart and lungs.

    I got my hunting license at the end of October, went out on 5 hunts before this one and today with the help of friends I got a button buck which I thought was a doe so I took it. Even though I hate the idea of taking such a young buck I can’t take it back so here he is. My fist deer ever. It was a hell of a hike and a grueling hike back. Until next season.

    I got out yesterday for the last couple of hours. Pretty windy but wind was in the right direction. Saw 2 doe way off and literally just at sunset this guy walks out and gives me a shot at 22 yds. He was walking to a scrape behind me, paid no attention to the little bit of moving I had to do to get on him. He never stopped walking even when I gave him a couple of bleahs. So I shot anyway. At first I thought it was high and too far back but he was angled away from me and I was in a stand so it actually was a good shot. He ran maybe 80 yds. And of course piled up in the thick stuff. I am so blessed! 2 deer with a bow! And I have great friends that came to help me with the track and drag!!

    10/31/20 A.M. Action packed morning for both of us.. Ill try to keep it short.. My stepson Cole's first Mature buck... at 14 yrs old!! He came home from his dads the night before to hunt with me after showing him some recent cell cam pics, I was so happy when he did this... I have a little slice of heaven i try to leave alone until The halloween time frame.. I put him there. Great spot between several bedding areas. I told him good luck, text me when your in and ready, and you should find it no problem at all.. Shoot straight and be safe. Lets bring one home today.. we fist bumped and off he went.. He informed me he will not shoot a buck he wont shoulder mount, it has to be a good one he says.. Even though on this property I told him he could shoot whatever he wanted to.. he insisted it has got to be a wall mounter or no go! lol. Alright bud im cool with it if you are.. I said keep your eyes peeled bc they will be on top of you there when you first see them.. he had several deer and a shooter on him shortly after first light but no shots.. passed a couple small bucks waiting on mr big.. he text me at 915 saying he hadn't seen anything in awhile and his feet were getting cold.. I Told him we can get down if you'd like but if you can hold out, that stand usually gets hot again around 10am .. or we can leave no big deal to me, were here for his hunting pleasure i'm just watching and guiding from a long distance lol.. he wanted to warm his feet.. I told him ill head to the car and come get you now.. as i started walking out of my stand a giant 8 and young buck appeared with a doe and fed in the corn in front of me for awhile.. I text him if your feet get cold go for a short walk if you need or hold out until 10, there's a slammer right in front of me taking his time... Long story short i moved on him and got 40 yards and couldn't seal the deal. so darn close but he went the other direction and i left the grunt call home.. there was another shooter further down the field too! All while this is going on, I get a text from Cole, I just missed a doe... twice! lol. First shot caught a branch and deflected the arrow and broke... the second shot went under her... Then moments i get the "just shot a buck" text.. and i start shaking! lol. heck yes heck yes!! he told me, as he hung his bow up, turned his head to look the other way around the tree, and there is this good buck and he's walking through his 20 yard lane, he had to act fast as there was one more small hole to shoot through or not shots will be taken.. in one motion he grabs the bow turns and comes to full draw, stops the buck in the small opening and lets it fly. The arrows connects just behind the front shoulder and the buck takes off... so we text back and forth I told him to stay put ill be right down with the car.. and we will go in and check it out. I meet with him at the road, we discuss things, go grab a coffee and a snack then come back. About 20 yards from the hit site we find the arrow, blood soaked about 12in deep and broken the broadhead plus 2 inches of arrow. We followed a scuffed up trail a running deer had made in a straight line from the direction of the hit site... no blood for a while but its the direction he went supposedly.. 100 yrds in we find a drop of blood.. awesome awesome awesome, this most certainly has to be the buck.. Finally after tracking a small drop of blood every 10 - 15 yrds or so, the 200 yard mark was when the blood trail gets heavier steadier, and splatter everywhere. as we go over another nole, I pick the binoculars up and see him up on the creek bank 75 yards ahead.. he's laying dead right there... He double lunged him with a rage, 2 big slashed holes in both lungs, and the cape stopped it upon exiting.. that deer had an extreme will to live.. Hes shooting 58# 27in draw. We almost got messed up on our tracking efforts as we began starting the track, another shooter buck came pass us all injured bleeding from the mouth hacking coughing, struggling to walk.. so we immediately thought it was him.. we stopped the direction we were going and began to tracked him slightly to check the blood, and couldn't find any sign.. But this buck was seriously wounded. So we decided that it was best we got back on to our initial trail and stayed after the evidence we found which instead, led us to the end of the right crime scene.. So someone got an arrow in a good one and we have a wounded breeder running around .. I couldn't be more proud of this Kid! Our hunting trips together just keep getting better and better every time... from Deer to turkey and coyotes.. its always a blast and action packed with him!

    A quick version of my hunt......around 9:20am Saturday morning I had a small 8pt buck come from the south, slowly feeding in the pines. A few minutes later something told me to look behind me, sure enough here is another deer and it's a bigger buck. The two bucks are on a collision course! My buck is maybe 40 yards from the other buck and I don't believe they've seen each other yet......my buck paws a scrape three or four times. The 8pt snaps his head up and laid his ears flat back! He advances towards my buck and my buck goes completely on defense; hair stands up on his back, ears FLAT back and his body all stiffed out, like a Battle Royal is going down! They walk towards each other and when they get about 5-8 yards apart they start to parallel each other and head towards my stand. Neither one would give the other eye contact.... I drew my bow when my buck was about 10 yards and coming straight to me. He turned to my right to face off with the other buck. At full draw I had to lower my bow arm as I have a dead tree in front of my stand that wouldn't allow me to swing to him, then, after that he was very close at about 7-8 yards I think my left eye took over and I saw the pin on him and punched the trigger BEFORE I centered the pin in my peep? I'm sick about that and need professional help. Seriously...... The shot was too far back and low. He ran about 40-50 yards and stood looking back at me. I figured he was going to die a slow death and I may not find him so I better at least try and get another arrow in him. I took a Texas heart shot and heard a loud CRACK. I backed out and felt sick..... Fast forward 5.5 hours; I get on the track fast, find decent blood, track him 75 yards very fast and find my 2nd arrow. 50 yards later I see him and he sees me, jumps and stumbles 30 yards to a small gully, goes down and can only go half way up before stopping. I was shaking like a leaf and promptly missed him broadside at 30 yards with two arrows and hit him high with a third. He went down and died but it took a bit of time. I went back to the truck and got my camera and came back and field dressed him. Then I went back to the house and grabbed the four wheeler and got him out but it was a struggle. Weighed him at 205lbs but during the middle of the night while laying in bed I remembered I left the heart and lungs in him! So I'll say he weighed 195lbs to satisfy any questions! I'm late for work now but here's a picture or two......

    On the board! Opening day I bumped this one out of his bed and found active scrapes in his area. Sunday evening I caught him and another real big one entering a bean field and have a good idea what the travel route is from the bedding area to the feeding area... so last night I had a pretty good wind and I decided to set up on the travel route to the bean field... the route connects a crp field to the bean field through a narrow strip of hardwoods. I set up about 10 yds inside the the field edge, well brushed in and facing the travel route. About 6:15, I turn around to look out into the field and there he is! He snuck in behind me! I have no shot and he is too far away . I know I have to move to the field edge and get in a spot where I can shoot without being seen, I found the spot I needed to move to then waited for him to put his head down into the beans. Every time his head went down, I took a baby step towards the edge. Eventually I made it to where I had to be and as luck would have it, he is feeding toward my shooting opening and after what seemed like forever, he was there. I drew and hit the release just as he started to walk again the the arrow hit him ... he turned away and took a few rapid steps then went down. Im flipping out now cause I know it was a bad shot, but he is down and trying to get up but he cant,, so I watch him intently and within two minutes his head went down and he expired. 34 yd shot Now I realize that I am not going to be able to get him out of here myself. I made a post in Live from the woods to see if anybody was nearby because I need some help! Then TF calls me and is on the way... Tacks is looking for help for me, Larry is giving high fives, Moho is pumped, Zeke is offering help, Andrew is all in for a drag... Ill tell you that we have the finest group of like minded people on here and that makes this the very best part of the hunt! Andrew took the pictures... great job and he is a dragging machine along with Jay... I just cannot give enough thanks to this group for support and help! And, This is a certified GTG! On the public from the ground to boot

    It’s been a long agonizing year since archery opener October 1. I’ve quit and bitched too many x to count. 90 minute drive each way to Gman’s and my local spot 20 minutes. Not seeing anything and got deflated fast as burnt out and simply not having fun like it should be. Supposed to be my happy place and that happy was diminishing. Hunted til 10:15 yesterday on gun opener seeing a doe and 2 fawn. No shot on doe. Turned off alarm at 4 am this morning as forecast called for freezing rain and that doesn’t sound fun to sit in and adding to my aggravation. Car has bad ball joints and tires just so so. Making it not great to drive in predicted icy roads. Well I can hang outside Christmas lights but no the $300 in led lights we bought last year to last year’s barely light. Gman texts me roads ok and snow starting to cover the ground late morning. Snow ?! Quickly jump in car and on my way. Arrive by 10:15 and in stand by 10:57 am. Fairly long trek to old wooden platform stand I wasn’t sure I knew how to get to. Followed Greg’s directions and took a long walk. Cutting fresh tracks all the way in the new snow. Kicked up 2 tails on way. Found stand , climb up wooden ladder and quick to screw in bow hanger to hang gun. Put seat cushion down , plunk my fat ass down and hear crunch crunch. I look to my left shoulder and see horns at 30-35 yards. Quick grab the savage axis 7mm08 off hook and it’s still wobbling as only just put on hook. Quick on him . Bwaaa I let out a bleat to slow his slow bound uphill. Crap, quick snap up scope caps . He’s locked up and I’m on him. I squeeze trigger and sob I forget this ain’t my turkey gun with a trigger safety. Now thumb the safety off the top and give him another bwaaaa but he hasn’t moved. Squeeze and he bucks. Runs about 10 yards with two back leg kicks and expires. Holy crap! That really just happened?! I was in stand 90 seconds tops. From zero to hero literally in seconds. Got video of a spike trot by seconds later too. Call Gman and in a holy my voice in excitement said big buck down. He later said I could tell in your voice he’s nice. I honestly had no idea if big 6 or 10. Saw bone and went into the zone of he’s a keeper with no pass. Greg drives back with atv for the Uber. Thank goodness no drag back ! Quick measure and he may hit 125-130 gross. Broke the news to my wife he’s going on the wall. My best buck ever. Prior maybe 90” 8 point few years ago with daughters youth 20 gauge. Sam comes home Tuesday for full remote rest of semester until February. She’s got her buck tag and a doe tag. Now the pressure is off me lol. Again , sorry to be such an azz hat giving up but been rough past couple years losing my folks , brother and SIL plus this covid crap. I give up trying to post pics. Been having troubles for months. Have a bunch of him and a few trail cam pics too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hey, i follow and read every post and have for 3 years now, only posted a few time. Yesterday was one of my best all time bow days ever. Got nin stand a 5AM and didnt see anything most the day. A lone doe at 8:30 AM, then a lone 4 PT at 2:30 PM. At 4PM i was thinking as you often do, am i going to go another all day sit this time of year and really only see what i noted above? I was in one of my sitting stretches at 4PM and look behind me, 8 does coming at me single file. Well they literally stayed under me 15 minutes and finally walked off back the way they came. I contemplated after that as it had been a long day, then my common sense kicked in and i said to myself, you idiot, still till legal time. I stand up, get my crossbow in hand, catch movement behind me sand look over my shoulder and this guy comes right down the lane the does were on. What a day, what a feeling!

    I guess ill start this off. Sat in my usual stand, call it the swamp stand. This doe makes 6 deer in 6 years ive taken from this stand, 3 bucks 3 does. About 820ish i caught a glimpse of legs goin through a thick area. Probably 830 a doe pops out 40 yards to my slight left. Shes all alone from what i can see, starts feeding to a trail 22 yards from me. Walks out onto the path facing dead on with me. I havent drawn yeat and waiting for the right time. She reachs her head back to lick her back and i draw, her head comes around and she takes 1 step. So now shes quartering towards me and looking at me. I settle my pin on the top of her lead shoulder and shoot. My lumenock shows i hit were i was aiming. I know alot of people wont take this shot and i understand. Im comfortable with it. She spun around at takes off. I settle down at sit back for 20 minutes, then climb down and head to the house. I get a drink and eat a little something, drop a layer and head back in. I get back to were i shot her probably a hour after the shot, i pick up on her tracks and find blood and bloody corn. I know the arrow exited through the guts. Im confident i got 1 lung and alot of extras. At this point i go back to my house, to get my dog. I worked with him alot last year with tracking. I wanted to see if he still remembered what to do on his walk.I know u cant track deer unlicensed in ny. I was just taking my dog for a walk on my property. We followed blood and got past were i had stopped. He kept goin, got hung up for a min then back to walkin. Would you believe he walked right up on that dead deer! She made it 150 yards and piled up. We ran out of venison a month ago so very happy to put more in the freezer. On to buck hunting!

    Decent 8/9pt with broken g3 bit the dust. Snuck up on me and I didn’t know he was directly behind me until I moved and I heard him running away. Scoped myself in the rush to shoot him and hold on to tree while turning around. Lol. But perfect shot. Honestly wasnt sure how big he was as it happened really fast but no complaints. Fun hunt with Treeguy.

    Thank you to everyone keeping my spirits up today. I’ve been hunting now for about 7 years and have not harvested anything worth showing, it feels so good to finally get a big buck like this and with the bow. I had guys reaching out to me to help find him who don’t even know me and that is truly awesome. 9 pointer in 6S

    So much for nobody talks, everyone walks! Well I had an epic morning. I spooked no fewer than five deer on my way into a new stand I put up in a nice oak flat. Acorns were literally raining down its all I could hear. At around 7:30 four does and a four point came in together and although upwind (real wind, gusty) they got spooky and finally the big doe started blowing and they left. They were looking in a different direction so I dont know if the wind swirled or they saw something or what. The buck hung around for a bit then also left. A bit later another small buck chased two fawns around for a while and then fed out in front of me. Finally two more does came in and one fed in to 24 yards and I shot. I couldnt see my arrow but the shot felt and sounded good. I sat down and called a buddy just to pass the time and all of a sudden I look to my right and the buck is just standing like a statue at 20 yards. I had the sun at my back and I think it saved me. He moved behind a blowdown and I was able to draw and shoot him at 24 yards. He went about 60 yards and tipped over. I waited another half hour and got down to check the doe arrow. That looked real good so I got on blood and the doe was ten yards behind the buck. He had some ground shrinkage but I'm thrilled and glad to have him. Ive got some family challenges that could effect some upcoming weekends. When I got down another doe came in and stared me down for a bit and then started feeding again, I like this KUIU pattern. Also I cut the bejeezus out of my thumb inside the buck and it is still weeping, may go get that looked at lol

    So the story. Hunting with Culver Creek and our friend Terry on Halloween. Great morning and lots of activity. Sat an area that is typically good last weekend of Oct - wall hanger shot 3 years in a row there- now 4. 10:30 I text Culver saying that everything seemed to be going quiet. All of a sudden I see a doe to my left running straight at me. Behind her in full stride are several bucks one of which looked huge. I didn’t think I would even get the bow off the hanger let alone a shot before they ran by. But the cooperative doe she was (we make quite a team) she stopped and started circling through the brush 15yds to my left. I draw and one buck steps out and it was a shooter but not the bigger one so I start scrambling trying to find the bigger one as they keep chasing around. I see tall tines running out to my left at 20yds but he was through the lane before I could get on him. He starts heading up a hill behind me so I find a small opening and bleat when he hits it and let the arrow fly. Still pretty brushy but I thought a good shot until he runs 50 yds away, stops and watches the chasing still going on. Then the doe takes off away from me with the other buck in tow. I am expecting my buck to tip over but nope, he runs full speed after the doe. Well that ain’t good. Check arrow and sure enough, green and brown. No blood. Sneak over to where he stood and find some blood. So I decided to back out and go home. After consulting with my trusted member friends - thanks guys- we decided it was best to let him lay overnight. Culver thought he saw him the buck head over a hill in the direction of the chase. Tough 24hrs for sure Treeguy offered/stated he would be there this morning for the track. He is 100% on recoveries on his Bday, this being his third. Long story somewhat shorter, we had little blood but with Culver’s intel and a photo I had on a trail camera we were able to search the right area. Took a while grid searching and I was thinking we were done when Drew calls me over. Sure enough, that buck laid down with his back to yesterday’s wind in brush looking down the hill on the trail he took when injured. Textbook. Got stomach and some liver. Not sure if I just made a bad shot or there was a deflection. Regardless the good Lord showed us favor. I think he will break 140 based on a quick tape. Jason will confirm but that would make him my highest scoring buck to date. Very very happy. Little time to hunt over the next few weeks with things taking precedent at home. Thank you God and my friends. Some pics as he laid.

    I got lucky after yesterday’s afternoon hunt! I was hunting behind my house from my ground blind I just fixed up located in the oak trees (and on the fringe of some wild apple trees). I was using my Bear Montana 45# longbow and one-piece three blade broadhead (I have been switching back and forth between my Bear longbow and my primitive self bow with stone points). Around 6:00PM I saw a deer slowly feeding into the oaks toward me...I was able to take a couple dry (practice) draws getting comfortable with a potential shot as the deer had no clue I was sitting about 20 yards away. The deer then started to slowly turn and walk away…as soon as the deer turned, I was ready and took a quartering away shot. I was using an LED nock and I saw that my shot was right where I wanted it when the deer bolted out the oaks, the same way it came in. After about 15 minutes (and hearing that the deer crashed off in the distance), I slowly got out of the blind to see what kind of blood trail I would be dealing with. I noticed that the arrow did not completely pass through but did partially exit on the other side (the LED was not visible when the deer took off). After walking about 10 yards down the trail the deer took, I found 80% of my arrow (with the broadhead) …covered in bright red blood, but no blood on the ground. At this point I couldn’t tell if the deer either continued straight down the trail or made a sharp right turn off the trail and through some very thick brush. I backed off, regrouped, and returned after about 30 minutes. When I continued tracking where I left off, I started to take the easy route (straight down the trail) hoping to find some blood…nothing at all. I was not yet discouraged as I knew I hit the deer good and it would eventually start to lose some blood. Based on the crashing of branches I heard when the deer took off, I figured it must have headed into the thick brush to the right of the trail. Knowing my hunting area very well, I decided I would take the easy trail and then cut to the right through the hard woods toward the creek in hopes I would find blood on one of the deer trails that I was going to cut across. If I didn’t find any blood, my plan was to then head back up to where I found the arrow and start crawling through the thick brush in hopes I could pick up the trail (I really do enjoy tracking deer). As I got about 50 yards down the trail, I just about stumbled on the deer. The deer did make a hard right through the brush and then circled back around to the trail before it expired. I was not expecting to see any “antlers” as I thought I was shooting a doe...but when I pulled him from the tall grass, I saw two very little spikes…after eyeballing the length and then taking an official measurement, I tagged him with my DMP. While I field dressed the deer, I was thinking that the broadhead had broken off inside so I took my time…I felt part of the arrow and when I pulled out the arrow section, my blood-covered hand was glowing a very bright red…in all the excitement (and maybe the beer I had while I “regrouped”) it took me a minute to figure out what I was looking at...I realized that I was holding the glowing LED nock with blood-soaked fletching and then remembered that the broadhead was on the section of arrow I found previously. I did a little inspection of the organs and saw that I hit at least one of the lungs...no other organs. I dragged the deer home, quartered it, and put on ice…I’ll finish processing the deer in a couple days. As much as I like to track deer, I was just as happy this time to have been lucky enough to have stumbled on my deer...it saved lots of time which was good because it was too warm to hang the deer over night. Below are a few picts from the hunt. Thanks for reading and good luck harvesting your deer(s)! Dino

    Daughter Stephanie and her family moved to NJ this year for work. She comes to hunt with us every year for the first week of rifle season. She’s never taken one with a bow, and never taken a doe. Where she is, you have to take a doe before you can take a buck. So she can check that box now! Her first deer without me there. I don’t know the story as she sent the photo after I went to bed. It’s killing me waiting to hear the details!

    Congrats to all who scored today..I wasn't even gonna go today,i am behind at work and thought i would catch up. My neighbor texted me last night and said you gotta go on opening day. Well,i woke up early so figured i would give it a few hrs. I had to get all my muzzleloader stuff together and find the orange vest and hat. My plan was to sit by a swamp,but i decided to take the long way round on my way there to check for vehicles,see who else was around. I saw a group of doe heading from low ground to high. A little further down the road a nice buck crossed,also going from low to high ground. So i switched my plan and went to a point on a north south ridge. I got in in the dark and once it got light i saw it wasn't quite the spot i wanted. I moved slowly closer to the point and stood there for a while. I was debating dropping to a lower bench on the leeward side of the ridge but then i wouldn't be able to see the top. Right then this guy pops up onto the top,nose to the ground..I was downwind and had plenty of time to rest my gun on a tree and pick a spot. He stopped briefly and i shot. I thought I saw him mule kick through the smoke and he took off. I lost sight of him but thought he crashed. I gave it some time and then followed the trail. He was bigger than i thought,rack-wise. By far the biggest racked buck i have gotten,but i think he is only 2.5 years old. What do you guys think? 18.5" spread,i am in 4F.

    Morning sit with my daughter! Got in at 7 about 830 she started getting antsi. I said 15 more min and we can go. I hear crack. See a fawn run out of the wood like he was hit with a hot poker. Then I see another deer run out and back in. Then boom a big deer steps. Just a big doe. I ask my daughter what she wants me to do. She says" shoot dad" so I did. 85 yard shot she ran 30.. Awsome Thanksgiving. Hope everyone has a great day.

    The only thing better than getting a big one is when your grandson finds it for you story later

    Well I didnt get chance to post this yesterday so , had a spike come by at 8 am and this doe came out about 9 am gave me a 20 yards shot ran 20 yard bed down and died in sight of the stand , nice doe dressed 110. So went out this am to back of property took an hours walk to get there. Was just settled in and was going to read a few pages of online novel I've been reading when I heard walking ,watched this guy come across neighbors woods and as it got closer I decided I'd better shoot it though it is not biggest I have on cam at 20 yards it went behind I tree I drew and it froze. Thought about liver shot but it was only a second and it stepped out other side of tree and gave me perfect heart/lung shot at 22 yards , ran about 45 and collapsed . 1st time i broke a blade on broadhead shooting a deer. Dressed 150 or so ( notches on my 120 year old hog scale are pretty wore between 140 and 160 so I cannot get closer than 2 lbs or so. )
