Day 1. Thursday 1.26.23.

Dropped off at 2pm at a trail to follow down to a ground blind. Maybe 200 yds. 4" of water in the blind, one folding banquet chair and one beach chair. Feeder at 18yds that runs at 4pm. Settled in. Took a snooze.

Very nice. My neighbors come from Maryland down at the camp. They shoot some Sika during the year. When we hunted Long Island they were in the woods and you didn't have to tag them. Invasive species they wanted them out. Cool looking small deer. I've seen some old Sika bucks they are knurly looking.

Cool. Was this through an outfitter? If so, possible to get some more details on the operation? Always looking for more fun (but mine would be black powder, not bow).

 

The deer hunts were with Branded Outdoors. Jake is the owner. Pretty sure he runs mz hunts as well as rifle and bowhunts. They have a website and fb page. Good people. First time I'd hunted with them. I'd go again.

Misc.

A big shout out to my brother Eric. Thanks again for the invite.

I was the only one to shoot a deer Thursday night. Turns out it was a button stag. Getting the hide tanned. The meat is tasty.

Saturday a couple other guys shot hinds. Chris from PA shot a big hind with his Disrupter 20 bow. And I'm pretty sure his name was Tyler, also from PA, shot a nice hind as well. 

I hung out and napped on the screened in porch. Best trip in a long time.

Epilogue.

I had the sika hide tanned. It was sent to Moyles. Tiny little thing. 

Came back nicely tanned but the tail was lost and the rest of it was quite torn up. Satisfied but not elated. Guess I'll just have to go back to MD and get another one lol.

I checked out the outfitter's site and looked over the photos of some of the Sitka stags taken at his place. Some nice trophies they are for sure, they remind me of miniature Elk. Seems to have a good population of them in that area, which is a good thing I think, gives a hunter a crack at something unique.
