Congrats to those who got it done so far today.

 

Wind wasn't right for the marsh, so I set my wife up looking down a shallow gully that leads around a-fore mentioned marsh. She had a decent doe milling around her for some time, and she managed to get it on video. She sends me a text, "Do you see it?". My reply- "No. See what? I'm 120 yards away facing the other direction.".

All I saw was a red fox not long after Sun-up.

 

Good day to me, wife had her first deer encounter without spooking the deer.

Annnnnd a wide perfect 6 just now, clear shot but too far for me, wasn’t comfortable so I let him pass.

So close ...I spotted fat solo doe at 12yds coming in towards my creek-side ground blind...at less than 10 yds,  i started to draw and find a spot to bury my stone point...I didn’t have the shot I wanted (even being so close), she busted me and bounced off.  So close but I don’t regret not taking a shot.  Soon!!

Best sit in a long time, no more deer seen, I don’t feel I spooked any on my way out either.  I have purposely not hunted much this bow season, in hopes of not burning out my home woods, before Halloween.  
 

Congrats to all who scored today, some amazing deer you guys, can’t imagine.

Doe down. What a cluster! Shot her at 16 yards but spines her. Lost my other good arrow out of the quiver when I shot. Had to climb down and tried to use the arrow with a bad bane on it but as I pulled back, the string on the release broke! The arrow flopped into the ground on the far side of the deer. Had to go back to the tree and search for the arrow that fell. Found it and went back and finished her off with a finger shot. 
Didn't go out till after the Bills game and only sat for maybe fifteen minutes before shooting.

Some giants taken today! congrats guys. And the Bills won.. 

I'm out all day tomorrow. Saw the forecast though. Winds expecting to top out around 40?! How windy is too windy for under 25 yd bow shooting?

My busiest deer day last year was that kind of wind.   But I did hunt a more sheltered valley.  Still plenty of wind.

I worry about wind drift in 10-25yd shots..

I don’t think that’s a concern at those distances.   Wouldn’t even think about it.

I've gone out and shot my bow just to test this before. 20 yards and under never made a bit of difference. Once I got to 30+ it seemed to.

Congrats to all that scored today! Some real monster bucks. Be back in the woods in a few days. My oldest son will be out tomorrow hopefully in some light snow. Things are starting to heat up. Great job Moog and Landwaz, and all the rest. Nice looking deer all.

I just got back from dropping mine off at the taxidermist.....He's going to cape it out tonight and save the lower jaw for me.  I'll pick up the horns and jaw so they are in my possession.  A few of my friends want to see the rack as soon as possible so I might as well hang onto them until ready to be mounted.

Betting yours breaks 150.  Great buck.
