Anyone else?
« on: January 20, 2012, 10:04:00 AM »
Is anyone else still out there hunting?  

I have had the big woods to myself for some time now.  Still working hard to get my first bowkill this year (tough season for me).  Had some good opportunities recently but there are so many eyes in these yarded up herds.  

I plan to try again in the nasty weather Sat morning.  Maybe get one sneaking through the thick laurels on the edge of the herd.

I even have a hunt planned for Jan 31st evening...the last hours.

Any other nut cases out there still at it??

You guys are men after my own heart. Yes I am still out there going at it. I am trying to catch up with that Yohon fellow(LOL). But so far the season have been good. Good luck to all in the little time we have left. I have planed to take off on the 31st and hunt all day right into dusk. Shoot Straight and Good Hunting.

I was covered in deer Sat.  Snow/rain stopped just in time to enter the woods.  I sat on the ground and had 15 deer around me.  

Picked a nice fat doe out at 25 yards and shooting the longbow uphill from a stool got me....lower limb tip hit the ground and ruined my shot.  Still was a great hunt!  Almost had a follow on shot, they never knew I was there!

oh shoot! I hate that. Always cool to be in the woods with deer though. 15 deer? dang. do you need some help with population control? I'm not the best but all with a little practice who knows?? LOL  

If you really want some killers talk to Tony and Yohon and probably Keefer too  :thumbsup:

Well my plan was to go out and hunt most of the day on the 31st, but unfortunately a bad cold kept me inside. But I did take #7 this past Saturday(25th). I took another skin head with my 1959 Bear Kodiak Recurve and Bear Razorheads. So now start the 7 1/2 month wait until the season opens again. In the mean time, I plan to get some Hog and Turkey hunting in along with summer time Groundhogin and some Bowfishing. Shoot Straight and Good Hunting.
