Best night of the season...saw 8 bucks and 4 does. Two decent bucks but the only two to come within range were a 4 and 5pt

I had deer in front of me for the rest of the evening. Just neither of the bucks I’m after. I had 2 bucks that just would not leave, so I had Haley drive through ATV back to me. Neither buck left until she was just about right at the tower. 
 

hopefully one of the better bucks that have been hanging around a lot show up this weekend for Haley.

Made it out for an afternoon sit. Had a single doe come out of the woods at 6:00 and started feeding. Never got closer than 60 yards. I didn't want to spook her by getting down so I stayed a little later than I planned and had the pleasure of walking out to this.

This guy was at 25 yards for me tonight. I hope He shows for Haley this weekend. We call him Claws. One of the nice 2 year olds hanging around. If he makes it through this year, he has some potential.

Shoot today what you would shoot on the last day of the season. If he's the one, take a rip!

Throw bow in car and can’t find release. I remember throwing it in there at Gman’s but can’t find it. SOB. It’s in there but where ? I call sodfather as only 5 houses away to borrow one. Treeguy on way to spot. No body answers    Daughter babysits for SF so I have her call his wife to ask him. Minute later he meets me at end of his driveway.    Lone doe crossed little ridge at just before legal. Doe n 3 fawns at 27 but no shot on her as they went down small ridge. 5 big doe and 4 fawns just came in to 15 but so many eyes and I’m sitting naked on 6 foot platform I was afraid to move. Finally have shot and draw but fawn directly behind her.  I let off and one boots taking the rest with her.  Tails everywhere. Oh well , from no release to covered in deer.

I always strap my release to bow.  Worked well for me.

Oh @*#&, you took those? Absolutely nuts. That one with the deer is beautiful.

I'm out tonight, grabbing daughter right after school. Spectacular fall weather for a sit today!

That sucks. I've heard of guys forgetting them. I never have and don't think I ever could because when I pack my bow in the case I wrap the release around the stabilizer every time, then when I take it out it's first thing on my wrist. Keep them mated up and hopefully it won't happen again ;)

I like your style.  No release?  Why not get naked on a 6' platform?  Kidding.  Congrats on your first bowkill by the way.  Good luck out there!

Same I hang mine from stabilizer when both sits at home on ground. They 3 things j always check when packing and unpacking truck is bow, quiver, release. Anything else can be forgotten and be ok

I’ve never forgotten my release, but I have forgotten my stabilizer before. I have a quick disconnect so that my bow fits in my SKB case. A mile in on the backside of a swamp and in the tree and I realized it wasn’t on the bow. Good times, I let 3 does walk that evening.

Yeah, I took them... but really just got lucky.  I have no skills.  Just took a snapshot with my iPhone.

I have never forgotten my release,but one time i took some layers off while still hunting and also took the release off,guess what happened?. That's right,i kept on still hunting for a bit and then realized I left the release where i took my sweater off. Had to back track and try to find the exact spot i did that. Of course the release has a camo pattern. I looked for close to 1/2 hr but finally found it. Have you ever tried to find the exact spot you walked through 200 yds back? I got lucky...
