Uni-horn!
« on: November 30, 2013, 08:30:00 AM »
Last night I took my first "one point" LOL!!
 
 This deer is a serious trophy to me all joking aside. Out of the 31 deer I have taken with a trad bow, only 2 were harvested while hunting on the ground, without a blind. It is my 4th deer harvested during gun season with a bow.
  He came in at a mere 20ft away. I was squatted at the base of a huge oak tree, and one horn walked in from behind. I was able to stand up and lean around the tree, sending my arrow right where I was looking and feathers deep.
 That ground hunting business without a blind is
tough!
   :D  
 
 
Just one more step.....please!

He has a big head, was he an older deer?  

Congrats, Nothing like playing the game on their terms at eye level.

I was going to say the same thing, he has that long snout.

very cool hunt!!! I had a blast ground hunting without a blind this year, but I have to admit I may have been more successful if I had been in a tree.

My daughter is in shock and awe that someone killed a uni-horn!!!  LOL
