  7. Triple crown in my book. Old warrior buck survived on state land. Octogenarian took him with a bow on state land. Taxi did a great job of honoring buck and giving the hunter a memory that will last the rest of his life. Kudos! Thanks for sharing. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk

  9. My current bow is 12 yrs old. The one before that was 8 yrs old when I gave it away. Still have a Hoyt that's over 30 yrs old, just because it is so easy to introduce new archers to, if needed. When I first started archery I changed bows every 2-3 yrs. Then, technology was changing rapidly and bows were getting noticably better and faster every yr. Now the rate of improvement seems to have plateaued, so longer time to obsolescence. That's my take anyway. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  10. No plans at this time. Next trip will probably be for prong horn in WY 2021 or 2022. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk

  12. First deer I killed I split the pelvis and sternum. That was the 1st and last time. Last deer this year got semi- processed in the field and taken out in game bags. Most deer get gutted where they fall, using the long gloves and double latex wrist length gloves. No sternum or pelvis cuts. I put the long gloves on only to reach up into the cavity to cut the windpipe etc. Once gutted, the outer latex gloves go into the long gloves and get turned inside out and packed out. Once carcass is loaded onto truck the 2nd pair of latex get removed and wipes are used to clean up as needed. When I hunted in GA & FL, the custom was to bring carcass out whole, then hang and process the deer with a half drum underneath to catch the guts, etc. Toting and emptying the half drum was an unpleasant chore though.

  13. I am out with the shotgun since morning. Took a walk at lunch and saw 6 does. I am just too slow, they ran past at about 50 yds and stood at around 83. Too far for me. Walk back to the stand and fresh tracks within 50 yds. Still have a few hours. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  14. As others have said, I have not hunted the middle of swamps, but have hunted the edges. I have not taken any deer from them, but have passed on several deer and seen a few before legal light that would have been chip shots. I always worry about recovery, so tend to hold off on any shots other than what I consider the perfect opportunity, before sending an arrow. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  15. Not today, but plan on going out Sunday, either standby with shotgun or in the PM with the bow. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
