An ok start to the day. A nice buck at sunrise that made an eighty yard loop around me then about fifteen minutes ago a doe ran behind me.

I’m debating on what to do for the afternoon. I can do an all day sit here inside the woods or I can go in for lunch and hunt a field edge for the afternoon.

Tomorrow’s weather looks like a wash out so I’m leaning towards an all day sit.

Thoughts?

Sit, that buck might be a little behind that doe.

Oh for sure. Earliest I’d get out of the woods is 11am. My debate is for after that. Just stay in this stand or hunt a different stand.

No one knows your stands better than you, go with your gut. But stay in as long as you can, it can change in a second. From the time I saw my buck till I shot was literally 15 seconds!

Nothing since the doe and fawns. Little squirrel is getting hungry. Probably get down around 10. Get some food then move a stand then off to do some side work. Rather be butchering lol.

Do you think doe estrus would scare off other doe?

Wondering if that’s what’s going on here.

Out for a 30 minutes break, gonna run a drag on the way back in for the midday sit.  Haven't seen squat.  Conditions couldn't be much better, let's hope it's evening that does the trick.  

 

Good luck Hockey, great deer John!

All hell just broke loose a little after 9. I was watching 2 spikes come in behind me when I hear a doe blow in front of me. As I’m trying find her the Woods exploded! 200 yards away 2 bucks are pushing each other around making more noise than I’ve ever heard before. It looks like they separate and this tall 8 comes out of nowhere tracking right towards me. I should have anticipated my shot opportunity better and been at full draw when he was 50 yards out. I would have had a broadside shot at 30 yards 10 yards before he was off the property. I was to slow though and he stepped across the property line before I could even draw back. I grunted at Him and turned around but only briefly. He was breathing heavily so I think he was mixed up in the fight and didn’t want to go another round.

After he disappears I catch a much bigger buck pushing a doe around. I let out some aggressive grunts but he didn’t want to leave her.

Good news is I might have a hot doe in the area. Bad news is she’s was 200 yards out and I’ve lost sight of them.

I’m really kicking myself for not being more ready for that buck. That should have been an easy shot.

If you have a hot doe every buck in the area will be around.  If they are chasing her 200yards can be closed quick.

Well seems like the end of bow season was the same for the majority of it for me.  No deer spotted,no rubs on the walk out.  Saw plenty of fresh crap and tracks though.  I might get out for a quick am sit tomorrow.  Wanted to go tonight but forgot my nephews party at 1.  

Congrats John on a great buck.

I’m not going anywhere now. I packed for an all day sit just in case. Besides I’m so dejected by my stupidity I don’t think I even have the energy to climb down.

My buddy just missed an 8 point chasing a doe. We are in 7R. Had 2 bucks dogging a doe yesterday. I’ve only seen 1 doe so far.

Bowhunting is difficult! Makes it that much sweeter when we have success
