FIRST POST ON THE KILL THREAD!

 

Saturday morning was hunting at my aunt's property in Rome for the early season.  Saw 5 does in the morning and almost got a shot at one but it was a little to thick so I passed on it.  About 8 I left the corn field I was sitting next to for a little still hunting. 

 

I started walking down an old logging road on the property trying to walk up on something possibly bedded in the beach trees.  Got about 150 yards into the woods from my aunt's hay field and saw a black squirrel which I was very tempted to shoot (and almost did!) Thought it through though, didn't want to use up a rage and possibly break an arrow.  Well its after 930 now and I had stuff to do with my nephew and girlfriend so I turned around to work my way back to the car.  Didn't even take a step and I see a deer walking from my left to righ crossing the logging road I was standing right in the middle on.  I could see it was a buck but he was about 80 yards out so I just watched and couldn't believe he was just going to walk right by me.  Well he turned towards me and took  a few steps then stopped.  Then took a couple steps to the right and stopped again.  He was teasing me!  He finally turned back towards me and was coming right to me! About 40 yards out he got behind a big tree so I quickly and quietly took three or four steps forward and got into a position for a shot.  He stepped out from behind the tree slightly quartering away, I drew, stopped him and let it fly!  Watched the Nokternal laser right into his ribs.  a little back but with the angel still a good shot.  I got my composure and texted my girlfriend to tell her plans were going to have to push back a couple hours.  I waited maybe ten-fifteen minutes and then looked for my arrow and blood.  Found good red blood right from the shot so I got on the trail.  about 60 yards into it I found my arrow feet from a stand my father and I built years ago.  About another 100-150 yards I found him in a cedar swap dead!  Apparently I wasn't the first one to find him....damn coyotes already started to open him up where my arrow went in. luckily no meat was lost.  He was my best bow buck so far! Good mass at the bases, good brows and the best part...the hunt itself less than an hour from shot to finding him 0945-1040

The Kindle just doesn't work right and   I have decided not to feed the bullies and distracters...it's call the ignore feature. They only have power when fed.

Mine is on the left, friend's is on right. Mine was hit high into liver after a deflection, but she went down within 75 yds.

 

Moog was too busy typing on his phone to notice bucks walking by on this hunt, lol.

Headed into my stand just after day light on the second day of the season after I got rained on the first day and decided to pack it up. As soon as I got my climber in to position I heard what I thought was my buck I had got on cam just a week earlier in the swamp just a head of me but I cannot see the swamp.I sat there patiently waiting for him to appear, after 20 minutes of swimming and splashing around or whatever these creatures do he walks in front of my camera for one last photo shoot. He walks halfway towards me but I still have no shot or at least I am not willing to take one just yet. This goes on for what seemed like forever and then I spot his buddy which is a bigger buck but with a abnormal rack and I had already decided I was out for the seven. He presented a perfect broadside shot at 25 yards, I hit him just a little high from the tree stand but I must have hit him right in the artery as there was a great blood trail from the rage BY. he ran for about 150 yards before he piled up. It took me 5 hours from the time I let the arrow rip until I had him out of the woods, not a drag I will ever look forward to do again by myself but he sure tasted good when me and my buddies processed the meat. Good luck out there guys.

I been lurking since I started hunting last year. post-5440-0-89438900-1412647325_thumb.jppost-5440-0-46525100-1412648129_thumb.jppost-5440-0-46525100-1412648129_thumb.jp

118 lb's she's either 4.5 or 5.5 have pics from last few years. She has a noticeable overbite so it was easy to identify her. Sent a Rage through her lungs at 54 yards in the beans. She ran 80-100 yards downhill before piling up. The itch is gone so now I can play the waiting game with the big boys.

3 1/2 year old 8 point, 175lbs. Caught him on trail cam yesterday morning checking a scrape I made and had the perfect wind this morning to sit in the right stand for him. Woke up late (6 am) and literally ran to my stand in my base layers. Was there for about 40 min before he leisurely strolled through. Sent a Rage through him at 27 yards. He ran about 300 yards before piling up. My son, wife, and buddy helped in the tracking effort. Great morning.

10/11- this is what I love about early season even though it's tougher to get on a mature buck:

Lost patience waiting for a mature buck already so I pulled the trigger on a nice big doe:

And the new rage hypos did the job- she piled up quick:

"We should encourage rifle practice among schoolboys, and indeed among all classes, as well as in the military services by every means in our power. Thus, and not otherwise, may we be able to assist in preserving peace in the world. The first step – in the direction of preparation to avert war if possible, and to be fit for war if it should come – is to teach men to shoot!"
