Lucky at Lincoln Ranch

We hunted the first evening and only saw a few spikes and yearling doe. We decided we were going to hunt all day the next day because the bucks were chasing does and you might see a big one at any time. The morning flew by because I had a small 8 point buck that… Continue Reading →

Last chance on the last day of the season….

The first time I spotted this buck… he was off in the distance, strolling across this field. I had initially just glanced over in that direction, but quickly realized I needed my binoculars to study more closely as the wide, heavy antlered deer was slowly making its way toward my blind. When the buck gave… Continue Reading →

I had scouted this location before bowhunting season started in October, and new that it was a funnel where deer had been passing through, although the area was thick and there were no trees available for a good stand placement.

This was my two week old Switchback XTs first kill! I was hunting on a buddies farm and was hoping for an opportunity at a nice doe. But the nice doe had stopped right behind a big branch that I couldnt shoot around and I was already drawn back, when this little doe appeared 18… Continue Reading →
