Blew a chance at what could have been a P&Y buck this morning in the Pine Bush. Saw him near the end of legal shooting time last night. He didn't come closer than fifty yards. Got set in the same spot this morning. Around 7:45 I see movement and he's coming right to me! As his head goes behind a large tree at 18 yards I draw my bow. AND HE STOPS!! I have two bum shoulders, and can only hold full draw for 30 seconds or so, tops. I held as long as I could, and had to let down. And as I did he stepped out, caught the movement, and was gone! I'm done bow hunting. Anyone who wants a nice Obsession bow shoot me a PM. I'm officially retiring from bow hunting.

sorry i posted before but on someone else's post .  back in aug 3 days after i got  my license i took a flop on my bicycle my left elbow blew up  and i couldnt draw my bow or  my 50 lbs recurve either. Im retired so between the doctor and physical therapy @ $40 and $ 30 a pop for the co pays i need a better way ,so i found the lock -a-draw and called and looked on the dec site and found that i could use it w/ a permit i printed out and my doctor signed it its good fort 1 yr. wow it saved my season but it takes some getting use to its always @ full draw all you do is point and shoot and its very accurate

Fifty yards to my right was a small buck chasing a doe around my food plot. Fifty yards behind me my buddy had two nice bucks walk by his stand (he already has a big buck) and fifty yards to my left two bucks are tearing up the brush, fighting, growling and grunting up a storm. Meanwhile, I sit in my stand with no shots at anything. What a week.

Got out with my dad today to set up our blinds for the gun opener. Our woods are mostly oak hardwoods with some pine and surrounded by a few green fields and a little corn. Basically daytime bedding. Not a lot of sign where we normally see it and NO acorns. We'll see how it goes. First pic is view from my dad's blind. Second is mine.b04dea420b4ea0bccc4b7a8633e4ce05.jpg3727b6dbf06683922d996ec77f24db70.jpg

Haven’t not taken a buck since early ‘80s . Between myself and daughter the freezer will be full . But as she pointed out we don’t eat as much anymore ,and with my friends elk meat ,no need to whack a doe at this point .

And yes I have a great antler recipe , send me yours and I’ll make you some ....

Larry..I have seen pictures of your daughter...

I would love to have her come down and hunt  out of my enclosed blind  with me so we could not take a deer together...

Just trying to help...

Got out today, had a 6 pointer at 45 but his body was that of a half year old fawn so I passed.  Also have you ever seen the videos where the clowns keep getting out of the car?  That's how this video starts out.  I have no idea how they didn't see me, I was in an open ladder stand.

get the grandson in there. Bucks have been pretty safe in the Pine Bush. I've yet to get out of the office to really hunt. Here now but checking in and about to leave. It's brutal seeing it right out the window while I work! lol

Let's hope this front picks things back up.  Broke out the Merino wool baselayer, and on my way out to make the drive.  Seeing that tank solo last night was good for the soul.

4L - neighbor saw a big buck on a doe at 9:30 am yesterday. Given the wind and where they were, unsure of how to approach a set up / pick a tree for that spot, especially in the dark. Since it’s close to the road, I can’t really “work my way in” either.

Might bring all the gear roadside, and wait for light. Then head in on foot. The wet leaves and ground should help.

Betting he’s got her locked down in some thicket.

Out in 3m on some stateland.  Found some rubs in the same hot spot as last year, not many deer on this piece but there are some nice ones and I have the woods to myself at the moment. Sixty degrees and a little rain in mid November wtf.
