Good luck to you out there! Looks more and more like my obligations are overwhelming my ability to hunt. Pretty sure my bow season is over. With a little one joining next week, my deer season is likely over but for a sneak out here and there.

Looking forward to pics!!!

I’m with you guys...clocks a ticking!  Trying again...short hunt this morning.  Wind is goofing me up a bit...hopefully something picks up on the scent trail I left leaving my blind after yesterday’s PM hunt.  Really want to draw good blood with this point...it definitely racked up some serious hours in the woods!!

Good Luck!!

Super quiet both sound and sightings wise last night. A peaceful hunt none the less.

There's an injured hen near one of our stands. My dad's seen her a few times and so have I. She's always alone and limps on her right leg but seems to be doing ok. The fact that she's never with the flock is odd to me. But I saw her fly up and roost just about 10 yards in a tree behind me. Was worried that she might bust me if I had to draw, but we came to a mutual understanding that she was comfy for the night and I wasn't going to see any deer to draw on haha. 2 more sits on Friday and it's a wrap.

They are moving this morning in 3N. This buck came into same scrape as I killed mine last year. Bet my dad wishes he hunted this morning now.

Had some chasing going on. She ran right past me and he followed. Just hit a small buck. Hit may have been a bit back tho. Arrow passed thru. He ran for 30 then walked of real slow. I could see he was bleeding good. Gonna wait till 10 to go look.

Public land bow only. Didn't pre-scout this spot. Daylight came and I was in wrong cluster of trees from Google maps. Doe with fawn had me pegged at 50 yards where I was supposed to be. Windy but sticking it out as long as I can.

I tracked a buck with a friend last night, we called it when he got to the edge of a huge field of red brush and golden rod. I told him I'd return this morning, he's got doctors appts all day. First light another friend and I spent an hour trying to get a direction, couldn't find a drop. So we cut across the field and lucked onto a stalk of grass with blood. Followed that trail to a bed with blood and then just beyond that...76597bb81d73c7fa3c54c088d56c2b38.jpg395f4101a88e7b395603bfda24936ec9.jpg

Def hit him back. Arrow has goo on it. Found good blood and got to within 30 of him. He got up and started to walk but stopped and then left slowly. Gonna back out for a bit...not used to this. When should I start looking again?

I would give him several hours, probably later this afternoon.

Wait hours now... once you see that goo and smell that’s smell it’s best to just wait. Hope you didn’t push him too far

It sucks the yotes got to him, but I'd rather know he's dead then wondering. 

I can't let a deer sit overnight in my area either.

He only walked 10 yards and stopped for an honest 10 minutes. When he walked away, he was slow and wobbly.

No yotes on the Islander, that I know of but I guess the coons would enjoy him.

You shot him at 9am?  I'd give him till 3pm at minimum. If your familiar with the ground and don't mind tracking after dark I would go in after dinner like 7pm. 6 hours he may still be alive but if you are slow and quiet you may not push him to bad? I also would wait longer if you have property line issues. Less if you have a yote problem...Waiting sucks but losing deer that should be recoverable is worse.
