Took a doe the first 30 minutes of the season.Thought it would be a great year.Boy was I surprised.In around 40 sets I only had deer in range 3 other times and couldn’t get a shot.Went today with my brother-in-law at his place and was able to take this doe at first light.She came in with two other does.This was my first time hunting out of a ground blind and was not aware of the constraints on your movements,but took my time and made a good shot.She ran about 50 yards and piled up.Made a good heart shot.Great blood trail and the T-3’s did their job.Meet in the freezer.

Location: Upstate NYWhen you start out on a good note and end it on a good note, I’ say it was a pretty good tune. As long as you had optimism in your outings and did as well as you did, feel fortunate. there are many that wish they had done as well. Like they say in baseball, “Wait until next year!”
Congratulations nice does looks like your season turned out pretty good to me!
I agree, any year I get a deer is a good year.

Location: In your stand while your at work!Some seasons are like that. with 40 sits in a tree Im sure you had some cool experiences or naps lol!!!.My Buck killing skills are sick – too bad there not contagious!!! Big Bucks are easy - That's why I let them go and shoot little young ones :)Thanks for the responses,and your right.Being able to take a deer with a bow is always good.I’ve just been hunting for 3 seasons and this season was the fewest deer that I’ve seen by far.Was able to spend a day hunting with my Son-in-Law(US Army EOD) for the first time this year and had a great time.I always feel that a day in the stand is a blessed day,and already looking forward to the next season.
On a side note.My Brother-in Law(who got me into bow hunting)took his first buck three days before I shot the doe.He was one very proud man,and I was so happy for him.AuthorPostsViewing 8 posts - 1 through 8 (of 8 total)
