3 bucks, 3 broadheads, 2 brothers
« on: November 08, 2013, 09:35:00 AM »
         

        November 7th was a great morning for field testing broadheads.     A Stos, a 4 blade Zwickey Delta and a Simmons Tree Shark were used to harvest 3 bucks for 2 brothers.    Accurate shooting on all 3 deer provided very short,  easy to follow blood trail.    Very thankful for a successful morning.
  Some story insight later.

The plaid hat in the picture was my father's, who passed away 20 years ago. He introduced us to hunting and everything related to nature.  He was like an Aldo Leopold.  We recently found the hat and have been wearing it for "good luck".  Turns out whom ever wears it the night before a hunt has been gifted good luck.   We both wore it the previous day, but my brother with the 2 bucks had it on longer.

I was really happy to harvest my deer, the first  picture,  after passing up several bucks so far this season.   This time of year I usually have  several close calls, but "no shot" situations on bucks I would like to shoot.
   The buck hung up behind me,  changing directions several times. Not bird dogging though. Head up and looking for my previous grunts.  Here it comes, get ready.  There it goes,  no shot,  oh well.  Here it comes,  there it goes.  Not going to happen. Over and over again.  By the time it stopped in the honeysuckle in front of me at seven yards, a nice 4 inch opening in the brush centered over the deers vitals.  Holding my draw for about 5 seconds,  pushing my bow arm hard at the target,   the string pulled out my fingers and I watch the arrow hit its mark through my bows sight window.
   The arrow hit behind the shoulder,  angling down into the offside shoulder.  The orange fletch/orange wrapped Beman MFX arrow with a new Zwickey Delta 4 blade stuck out 6 inches from behind the shoulder and spiraled tornado-like as the deer ran off tail tucked.
    It's the best hour a hunter can have waiting to recover a well hit deer. I stretched it out as long as I could.   Stand up.  Pee in a bottle.  Enjoy the 8am sun on a dead still morning.  Hit replay in your mind over and over again as you reflect on the event.
    I have shot 3 deer with a Zwickey Delta 4 blade and thus far have all provided "non-crouching",  easy to follow blood trails. This deer went about 100 yards.
   A big thanks to John McDonald for making me an awesome shooting Big River bamboo longbow 66" 51#.
