Joined: 4/23/2008BOOMOk here we go. I decided to hunt my ground blind yesterday. I had several small bucks come by in the morning. Nothing all afternoon. Then at about 4:20 I have a spike in front of me and I hear all sorts of chasing and running going on up the hill in the woods. The spike looks over at the commotion and takes off after them. It sounded like a herd of deer were running around up there. But they were on the closed side of the blind and I could not see what was going on. Then, as quick as it began, everything went silent. They were all gone, so I thought. After about 5 minutes I hear something coming down the hill. I ease forward to peak around the corner and see it’s the wide 8. I ease back into place, draw and wait. He steps into full view, completely broadside, 20 yards. He stops, I touch off the release and instantly hear a strange noise and watch in horror as the arrow flys right over his back by about a foot. I had clipped the edge of the window closure. He runs straight away from me about 30 yards, stops, looks back at the blind and just stands there for what felt like forever. He paced back and forth a couple times and then started walking slowly down the hill. I am thinking there he goes. I screwed it up. Just then he makes a U turn and starts back up the hill. He is moving very slowly and cautiously only taking a couple steps and then stopping and staring. Finally he works his way to about 30 yards (10 yards from where he was the first time) and starts sniffing around. But he is facing right at me, head on, no shot. By now I have another arrow nocked, bow still in hand and waiting. He smells the ground and looks right at the blind, over and over again. He finally turns and start to walk down the hill to my left. I need to wait for him to clear a tree. When he does I give a soft baaa with my mouth and he stops. I settled the pin, squeezed the release and thump, I hear the arrow hit its mark. He jumps turns to his right makes about four bounds and his hind quarters start to sag and he starts to stagger. He stumbles around turns and goes head first into a brier bush. His rack get tangles in the briers, he goes down, head up, lets out this loud roar and expires. I sit back and can’t believe the good fortune I just had. Then I hear a noise of something else coming in from my left. It’s a droopy main beam 10 point that I also have on camera (and also would have shot). He walks right over to the buck I just shot. Smells him, paces back and forth and then just stands there for about ten minutes looking around before he finally walks off. Man what an experience and what a day. This is the first buck I have ever killed from a ground blind with a bow and I liked it.
Here are some pictures.
One of his last chases. The date is off on the camera by ten days. THis was actually November 9th.Z-7 65# 30"
