Well, got a big goose egg in Alabama. It was a horrible hunt. It was hot and the deer were not moving. Land owner didnt work very hard to get me on the deer. I never even had a deer within 50 yard. He would not refund my money or offer me to come back later to get a deer. He said if I rebook, and pay agian, he would give me an extra day. Will never go there again. Time to gear up for Missiouri.
Ahhh man that stinks, sorry to hear, yeah cross him off the list. Good luck in Missiouri!
could of had a doe….but some how I choked at 25 yards and shot right under her belly my the front leg, was going for the heart….should of took the double lung oh well!Well guys i haven’t seen much of anything as of late. Been out a few times but no deer. I’m on my way to Nashville tmrw for vacation with my GF, so i will miss a whole week, but when i get back i will be hitting the woods hard. Good luck everyonethe rut has hit michigan hard….saw a big 4 point rutting hard on a doe, even poked her in the butt lol and made her keep running, saw nice little 8 and 6 point last night to far though, with two 4 poitns this morning and couple does….it has picked up here in michigan!

Joined: 2/23/2012Leaving for Missouri in the morning. It has to be better tham Alabama. Will keep you guys informed. Hope I can get 2.nice, good luck. The deer have really started to move here, I saw 12 deer yesterday was able to see a small spike. Rest were does. Then some came in late and I had no clue what they were. So im going to be moving my stand around cause all the deer were just coming from a spot I couldn’t get shots off into. So gotta change that. Should least have a doe by next weekend if they keep coming to that spot like last night. I also let a buddy sit in that stand and he shot and missed a 6 point. Said he walked through the same spot I saw all the does so time for a change.
Good luck guys.
whats been going on with everyone else?
Location: PABeen seeing a couple smaller bucks. Nothing legal though. Most of my buddies have been seeing a lot of pre-rut activity but, nothing too heavy just yet. We have 1 more week before the early season runs out. Should see some activity this week. Gonna try a lot after work this week. My be a little trickier since we rolled the clocks back. Maybe talk the wife into letting me take a day off. Looks like I’ll be doing slot of praying this week! Good Luck guys and may all your arrows turn red this week!I tell you what bow hunting is a mental game….and its beating me down, already three times this year I have second guessed what I was gonna do for the hunt, and all three times bucks have walked under the area I was originally going to hunt….ehhh im exhausted i’ve probably got over 60+ hours in the standwelp Yesterday night I put a nice doe down with my muzzle loader, around 5 oclock had two doe come into my right, and it was a brown its down night, she was a big fatty, at 30 yards I let the CVA rip, it found its mark right behind the shoulder, 60 yards and there she was! Right as they came in I was texting my cousin that I was goign to get out of the pop up and walk to the edge of the field cause I had sat in the pop up all week, Friday-sunday morning and hadn’t seen a deer. well good thing I stayed put!Congrats on a nice doe. Rifle season is upon us here in NY, and I am switching between the bow and gun depending on the location I hunt. Hopefully I can put one down.
Location: PAWell guys i know it is no more points for us, but i put a big doe down last night. This was the first time i’ve been hunting in a while. It has been cold and i work outside all day so the last thing i want to do is sit in the cold at night. I had a group of does figured out, so i decided to sit 30yds of the trail they were using. Sure enough here they came. This big doe was first in line so @ 25 yds i let it fly. She went 40 yds and down she went. I am loving these new killzone heads, large holes and short track jobs can’t ask for more than that
Joined: 10/7/2008Nice deer you guys. I am still at it but have to say I have seen fewer deer than any other year. Had one nice night with a tall 7 point but he never presented a shot. We will see what happens. Good luck all. GregAuthorPostsViewing 12 posts - 121 through 132 (of 132 total)
