way to go mhpm! She'll eat very well I reckon. I had the biggest buck encounter I've experienced with my bow on Friday night. Wanted one last hunt before guns started blazing saturday morning. Neighbor was arriving around 4pm and it was the first absolutely dead calm hunt I've had this year...been plagued by wind all year. Heard this buck come flying down the hillside behind neighbor's pond and saw him pop up at 40yrds across the property line. He sat and stared at the truck pulling up and bolted as soon as they turned into their house. I was already standing and got to full draw immediately. He bounded past me at 20yrds, just couldnt get him to slow up for a shot unfortunately. great big buck, at least 10pts. I made myself concentrate on aiming and didnt really even take a solid look at his headgear, but he was very big. Flash to Saturday, we had 25mph winds and upper 60s all day...never saw a deer, barely any shooting .Woke up Sunday and walked out at 5am, it was 62 degrees and gusting HUGE. We had 40mph winds and 79 degrees at my farm, I quit at 9am due to fear of my tree blowing over. Eventually turned into tornadoes which demolished some IL towns just across the river. Worst opening weekend harvest of MO deer season in over 20 years. It was absolutely brutal conditions. Hoping this weekend fares better. Didnt seem to slow up Ike and his crew somehow though! They are stacking up the deer this year.
