The Quest for 1,000 Inches (2019)

Recommended Posts

What started out as a joke in a group text with @Jeremy K @The_Real_TCIII @Lawdwaz @TreeGuy @sodfather @turkeyfeathers nearly became a reality in 2019. Sometime in early October, I mentioned how it would be crazy if we killed 1,000 inches worth of bucks combined this season. In fact, I even started an excel spreadsheet. Of course, it turned out to be a jinx as the first 18 days of October resulted in 0 bucks combined.

Finally, on October 19th TCIII broke the ice with a great buck and we were on the board.

After another 8 days of lull, Jeremy got it done next (FROM THE GROUND) on October 27th.

We headed into November still needing over 800 inches!

On the evening of November 1st, Andrew struck next with a great buck. Later that evening I sent the attached text to the group. The weather, the date, the 11/2 xbow opener, it all just felt like the stars were aligning for a great weekend of hunting. What ensued next, nobody could have predicted or maybe I was right!

On the morning of 11/2 at I shot my best NY buck at 750am. I felt like a hero on the group text for actually contributing. I had my glory for all of 40 minutes before I was informed that Sodfather had shot an ever better buck at 830am. At this point, we were all excited with 2 bucks in 1 day. But that wasn't the end of it. By the afternoon, TF (his first archery buck) and Larry had also shot bucks that afternoon. We were now at 5 bucks in 24 hours combined! We were now officially archery tagged out on 11/2. We had 630 inches via 7 bucks. 

2 weeks of anxiously waiting for the gun season to arrive, it seemed like we would for sure get the remaining 370". Unfortunately, only Larry (11/23) and Andrew (TG-11/28) would come through with giant bucks, but still not enough to get us over the 1,000" mark. We ended up with 885" combined and gun misses by Me, TCIII, and Jeremy surely cost us the prize. The final tally was 9 bucks (6 bow, 1 xbow, and 2 gun). 4 of the 9 bucks were killed from the ground!

While we didn't make it to 1,000, this quest provided for tons of laughs, excitement, and making fun of each other!

I take full responsibility for missing that good one during gun season that would have put us over 1000.

9 bucks I see, if they average above 100 which many do you should be close!  Great year guys!  Congrats !

And yes, I surely did enjoy the back and forth texting in the group chat.  Some days the total text count could be easily 500 texts!!

I saw a 4 point at friends and passed as he asked not to shoot another buck there as killed one there with the bow. Shot the big doe he was tending instead.   Sacrificing inches

Also had 130+ " at 17 yards behind a big bush with .44 in hand ready for him to show what he was. Wind swirled ,he jumped up and took off. The echo of FUG ME still probably echoing thru the woods. Foot, throat patch and nose was all I could define in the approx. 7 minutes he stood there.

I was the weak link in the 1,000 inch quest. Hope to not be traded before next hunting season and redeem myself

Agree with Lawdwaz, what a fun year of hunting and the group text. 11-2 was Epic !

"gun misses by Me, TCIII, and Jeremy"

Sounds like rifle and shotgun should be added to the academy.   lol  Not that I EVER miss - as confirmed by several still living yotes.

I was a complete failure during gun season not even seeing a buck . That quest taught me a lot of things and had a blast going for it. I will never forget this season. The full on track job for Tacks buck, Jeremy’s buck that walked right where he predicted. Andrew getting us fired up that night before the November weekend. TF’s first archery kill when a year ago he couldn’t even draw the bow back. That November 2nd morning when Biz and I shot our deer. And of course Larry in typical Larry fashion just another season filling the freezer. Can’t wait to give it a run next year....

Heck of a season boys and to almost get to 1,000 inches is something special! 

While not on your groups, group text I was on a very large one from the start of Bow season all the way through muzzle loader and it honestly made the year that much better.

DEC hasn't confirmed yet, but I believe I am the only person in NYS to hunt the combination of 3S, 3N, 9J, and 9K in 2019.

I think you have that on lock

I can only imagine how much fun it was to be involved in your quest. I must say it was pretty exciting just watching from the sidelines. I can't wait to see how the 2020 "redemption" season unfolds. Very cool guys!!

Well done.:clapping:

I hunted all 4 this year so sorry you are not alone. I just prefer not to brag about my lack of success
