2nd doe of 2008
« on: November 04, 2008, 02:39:00 PM »
i have been hunting in iowa for the past 8 days and have 4 days left  to hunt. We are experiencing poor rutting movement due to very warm weather. I got lucky last tuesday and killed this big doe, She walked into a scrap i was hunting down wind of. i let her walk into the scrape and it was fun to watch her bat around the scent wick i had hung from the licking branch. She walked away only to return 15 minutes later and do the same thing all over again. I decided i would shoot her and then totally blew the shot. I still dont know what I did to cause my arrow to miss the mark . I thought I hit her low in front of her shoulders and gave my self hell for 90 minutes before getting down to look for blood. As luck would have it , i actually hit her n the lower throat severing the  jugular and wind pipe and she only went 40 yards.

 

To hear more about this hunt go to pow wow and see Shaun's post of selfbows and whitetail

The head on that thing looks like a horse's head.  Congrats and enjoy the rest of your hunt.
