Yeah I know I did Everything I could  Doesn’t help the second guessing and sting though. Up the ass shots make a mess. I should Have just done it but I thought I could Get a clean shot easily. 

You are among the best hunters on here. You gave it all you had, that's all anyone could, or should ever do my friend. Sometimes, in spite of our best efforts,  it just doesn't work out the way it should. Yes, it stings like hell! Especially to a good hunter, but all you can do is pick yourself up and move on. Get out there with your daughter and take pride in her hunting, as well as your own.  Redemption is on the way buddy.

On to a public land sit before I have to take a 4pm call.

 

Two bad signs. First, as I am parking a fork horn runs out of the brush and onto private land next door. Second, a stream was a little higher than anticipated, I tripped and have one soaking foot and one soaking glove. Thank God for wool.

 

Neither of those sound like tidings of good luck, but I will give it a go. Overlooking a hardwood flat pinched by an oxbow stream. Never sat here before and it can't hurt.

 

Good luck to all out there.

She got him! They followed him down to the bottom of the creek bed and saw him laying there on the other side. Hubby finished him where he laid. they just field dressed him and are starting the drag. They've got about 400-500 yds all uphill in a foot plus of slippery snow to get to where I can get a machine to it. This ought to take a couple of hours. I'm probably going out for the afternoon sit in a bit and will most likely get him back to the house after dark unless they make good time. Pics to follow.
Every year she has had her deer recovered with my tractor, never had to drag an inch. I've been telling her all of my "olden days" stories about having to drag them all back. Now she'll know!
Can't wait to see! In the meantime I am going to sit here and try to figure out how you did the underline thing (did you use your phone?)

Big doe at my front doorstep at 8:30 am.  Dogs went ape shit of course and she casually trotted off.  *sigh*  The chess match continues.

This reminds me of my first ever (and still biggest) buck from 10 years ago, pic attached. He was following/chasing a doe, and I got a nice broadside shot at 25yds. Runs about 20 yards and crashes. I can see him laying there, not moving. The doe actually comes back to him, smells him and stands there. She leaves after a few minutes. I walkie to my dad saying big buck down. He tells me to wait, I’m just sitting there for 30 min watching this massive buck laying there, still hasn’t moved a muscle, meanwhile I’m shaking like crazy. I start walking up to the buck, about 5 yards away, gun on him, he still doesn’t move. Stand over him, still doesn’t move. Someone talks on the walkie, and it’s loud, the buck jumps up and takes off, I couldn’t get a shot off as he almost runs me over, and he luckily goes right to my dad, who finished him off. Don’t think I’ve ever got yelled at more in my life for not finishing off the deer when I had the chance. So now I do the old poke the eyeball test. Needless to say I certainly learned my lesson and won’t ever forget it. 96f552aea103f3ceec014d73b3b9bd5d.jpg&key=b8acaf1795db9e20a07a44b4991d75376b31c13409e06ecd8a4cc17cc5e31ae7

I’ll have Haley out tomorrow. 

That is a good plan...move on shift focus.

That said stay frosty I've reclaimed more than one wounded/lost deer a few days later in the same/nearby spots I shot them the first day.

This legend fended off yotes and evaded you again, don't count him out yet you may still get your hands on this ornery stud.

Great job Grampy.   That’s what persistence does.   No deer for 3 straight days and then BBD!

Yes! I'm getting one tomorrow via this formula

They got it back to the trail that follows the property line. Rack is in pristine condition. And now she knows what a deer drag is like. Her second best ever deer - happy daughter!

Daughter comes to our place every year. She hunts harder than I. Always more glad that she gets her NY road trip buck than if I get my own. It’s become a nice tradition. Happy Dad. Now I’m out for the afternoon shift where I saw those bucks at last light yesterday.

      Hello,
      I am in the process of purchasing my first rifle to go hunting deer for the first time.  However, I have received contradicting information regarding the types of rifles that are legal.  Based on what I have read, it appears that I am able to use a bolt-action rifle with a pistol grip and a detachable magazine which holds 10 rounds.  However, I have been told that this is not the case. I can't seem to find where this is stated.  Can any one here provide me with some insight into this? I'd really appreciate it.
      Thanks in Advanced,
      Alfredo

      Hello to all my fellow bow hunters! Here's a question for you, if you had the chance to hunt and win $50,000, would you do it? Well your chance has come! It's the Bone Collector North American Whitetail Championship! The biggest and most exciting deer hunting tournament that's ever hit the whitetail woods!

Yes, there is a $300 entry fee, but here's the cool part, when you sign up, the crew at the championship will send you a gear package in the mail with over $400 worth of hunting gear! You will also have your name put in for hunt give away drawings and product give a ways! How cool is that!?
