    After I eat Thanksgiving meal tomorrow, I am headed back to Ohio. I will hunt Friday thru Sunday with bow and then gun on Monday.

    It is Ohio. Who knows what could happen. I hope to collect a few more “points” for Team SDS!

    Anyone else still bow hunting?[/quote:21ct047o]

    Good luck, bro!

    I am still bow hunting and will be until Jan.1. I made the change to only bow hunting 3 years ago and unless something happens that makes me change I plan to stay with it.
    Good luck guys.

    Not much happening here. I lost my lease so I have been scratching around for land to hunt. I have a couple places but not a lot happening on those. :cry:

    I put my bow away for opening weekend of firearm here in Indiana. I hadn’t seen much action up until Sunday evening when I had a doe come barreling by me. I look at my cell to check the time and see that I have about 5 min of legal shooting time left. So I’m waiting and waiting to see who is after her. After a min I hear a buck grunting and heading my way. Its dark in the woods now so I can only make out a big body.

    He sounds like a mature buck with deep grunts so I’m getting pumped and also thinkin hurry up and get to the field so I can see that rack…. so he gets to the field and immediately spots the doe he was chasing about 150 yards away. He takes off and I mouth grunt to try and stop him to no avail. So I yell at the top of my lungs “HEY!!!”.

    He stops I look at the rack and thru my scope and I think oh my god its Split! (Split is the name I gave to one of the bucks I have trail cam pics of with a Split Main beam) So at that moment I have 2 min of legal shooting time left… he takes off again after I look at the rack and again I have to yell “HEY!!!” and he stops at now about 100yrds quartered hard away. I put the reticle of my Prohunter 44 mag right on the back half of his ribs and pull the trigger. He runs about 30 yards into the woods on my right and I hear him crash… So at this point I’m shaking like a leaf, I can’t believe I just smoked “Split” (roughly 150+ buck).

    I get down head back to the truck and grab my Teryx and my flashlight and drive down thru the field to look for him. I find blood right away and start following in the woods and there he lays! Only its not “Split”! It’s a 2 1/2 year old buck with tight rack and really tall G2′s…. I was really disappointed at first because he was not a buck that I would have shot this year but on the other hand I was still excited because he is just my second buck (only been hunting for 2 years). So there is my long winded story of my second buck. Sorry no points for a buck with a bow this year but maybe next year will be the year! Good luck to everyone still out there with a bow!

    Congrats BigHoss. That is a pretty buck… but I do wish it would have been “split”.

    i am still hunting, but the most I could hope to do would be upgrade my buck so it wouldn’t be a huge point difference. My dad and I went out this morning and shot 31 quail. Had a great time with some young dogs.

    Congrats on the does Z7.

    My 2012 season was wonderful. I liked two does and three bucks. In my dreams, I am still trying to find a way to get one more hunt in Ohio. However, that is probably just a pipe dream.

    Hope you get an opportunity at a nice buck before the season ends.
