I agree, Allen...if Bill would have positioned himself properly, with those orangutan arms of his extended, well, he would've  looked like a Boone and Crockett buck  :saywhat:   He even kinda looks like Chuck Adams when he's smilin'...

Way to go, Bill and Brendan!

Jumped two in our little patch of woods over at the farm Saturday afernoon; nothing the rest of the evening.....until I had to stop the truck as I left the driveway while 6 crossed the road in front of me  :rolleyes:

Alright everyone!  Major congratulations to Bill and Brendan!  Mucho venison and macho antlers to start October.

Nook - don't listen to the peanut gallery.  They're just jealous they didn't get a pretty doe with leafy green pasties.....

The wind "blew" several developing opportunities in the a.m. and other people ruined plans A, B, and C for the p.m.  I'd have a less frustrating time on public land, lol.  As a result I only have commentary for the "harvest thread" but I'm still trying.

And rumor has it that gretchen has been filling the freezer in September so kudos to him as well.

Some nice deer and good shooting. I'm still getting used to my tree saddle before I hunt in it.

Bill... congrats on a wonderful buck!  If Allen was in the picture (since he's a great deal smaller and all deer look bigger than they really are), your buck would have looked like an EXCEPTIONAL P & Y.

Brendan, where are the pictures????

To all others... it looks like we all have to step it up.

Safe hunting all.

I forgot to mention this was my first shot at game with my new Foley recurve.  I couldn't make it to Dixie last month, so I didn't get to show it off.  I'll take some pictures and post it on Pow Wow for all to see.  She's pretty, and shoots great.  If/when I miss, I can't blame the bow!!!

Me and my buddy Brad after still-hunting in Appomattox this morning. I shot him at 7 yards with a Bighorn T/D recurve(65@28"), and a home-made cedar arrow with a 160 grain Magnus I at the business end. It broke ribs going in and out, and he left a blood trail a blind man could follow.

Way to go Jonathan.  Still hunting isn't easy.  Good eating size.  Keep after them....

Nook, That H'bird still has the 'ol mojo working-killed a good sized doe yesterday evening. Great shooting Bill-that Foley looks like it will work for you. Best to all and stay safe out there.

Tom... I thought the picture on the Pow Wow Looked like the H-bird Dynastick with those sexy limb covers.  She's still got it and so do you.  That bow needs to hunt...  Great shooting.  Got to love this time of year.  I guess now you can do some of that old Bear bow magic...  Have a great season...

Jonathan, good job on the deer (and the written word).  

Peachy, which Crow Creek did you use... the Mag or the Blackfeather?

Depending on work, I hope to be in the woods again Thursday morning.

Congrats Tom and Jonathan!  I'm off Thursday thru Monday.  Hopefully I'll run into this guy.  He was hanging out with a couple of his smaller brothers and cousins this summer, so I have motivation to be in the woods!

 

Be safe and shoot straight!

You know, I can't believe I forgot to post this before but I have to give thanks to my Dad (Always89) and Mom. I wouldn't have my love of the outdoors if it weren't for my Dad and I couldn't imagine life without it. He actually gave up his hunting early to help me blood trail the deer and be with me when I found it. And my Mom supports our habbit and puts up with us skipping chores to hunt. I couldn't appreciate them more.

Bill,
 Think that buck should keep you going all season long, what a hawg. Good luck with it.
a89b-It is always good to hear a respectful young one give his/her parents their due, you are the result of their patience and guidence,my hat is off to all of your family.
