Getting ready to head out for a nice morning sit. Figure it should take me nearly 12 hours to get to my stand so better off getting an early start especially when I'm after this guy...IMAG0069.jpg

First time sitting the swamp stand on my private lot this year and first time ever hunting with a xbow. Hoping for some good luck. Good luck to all those out.8e303098796716bd2902b02c7655b4dd.jpg

love this style of hunting!  

That was literally my first time stalking. Happy that I saw them before they saw me and that I got 10 yards on them before I was busted.

Well made it out tonight, only second time, and finally I have something  to contribute to this thread. 
lower right of photo is a scrape that was not there last weekend and upper left is the ground blind we set up in August . 20 yards away, a camera will be going on the scrape tomorrow. 
oh and no deer seen tonight.

Decided to take advantage of the wet and try my hand at stalking. After 45 minutes of step, step stop, I saw a deer about 40 yards away through the dense brush. I started to parallel her movement when I picked up another larger doe behind her. She raised up and eyed me straight off. I froze midstep and we began what seemed like a 20 minute staring contest. There was a large black cherry between us and when she finally turned I sidestepped and put the tree between our sight lines. Took a breath. Unfortunately, there were a lot of small trees between me and the cherry so I couldn’t inch straight toward it. After five minutes I tried to go ever so slightly around a sapling and she blew and took off. 
Best day ever. 


NOTHING like being on the ground. Awesome

I went for my stillhunt this afternoon. About 30 mins in i spotted a doe below me at the tiny creek flats. She disappeared after she took 3 steps. She was maybe 50 yds,i didn't feel like going after her.

I kept moving along the side of the ridge about a third of the way from the top. The wind was kinda swirly,not helpful. I thought I heard antlers clashing in the bottom,but couldn't be sure,never heard that before. I went through thick beech stuff and a bunch of blowdowns. Looked like good bedding. There also were a few trails through it,some with fresh tracks. As it was getting close to dusk I heard crashing and wing flapping in the treetops. Turkeys roosting i guess. Just before dark i heard another sound,not sure what it was. Shortly after two raccoons ambled past,i spooked them when i tried to get my phone out.

Then i started to walk out and almost right away found a single bed where i thought a buck might bed. It looked pretty fresh, the leaves were compressed. I think he/she must have caught my scent when the wind swirled. 

I probably should have sneaked along that ridge from south to north instead of the other way around. That ridge turns a west wind into a south wind. 

Oh well,learned a thing or two,back at it in the morning. I will try a stand in a bottom where a few draws drop in behind a pond. Not a productive stand,yet.

That's what I figured he'd have to be. Can't see his brows but I've got at least 2 like him running around..now I just need the perfect wind so my giant bush can bring death to him

That an extra beam?   What a stud.  Hope you get your chance. 


I’m not sure exactly what to call it haha. It’s something between a split brow tine and a kicker off the brow. He’s had it each of the last three years, here’s a better picture of what it looked like in 2017. Surprisingly this is a small but pretty far out of the way and unknown piece of public. There’s some other hunters but I don’t believe any know he’s around. I’ve had him within 50 yards each of the last two seasons just haven’t been able to seal the deal so hopefully my third season chasing is the charm
