Wow, not much to report for my opener.  Felt like I was at a resort.  Got a Sauna bath on Sat. and a Shower on Monday.  Very few acorns in this neck of the woods.  Going to be a interesting year.  Back in the woods on Friday.  Should be a little cooler.  :archer:

I must report my Cool Springs Brother - Travis Lillard put a lighted nock Silver flame missle into a Antlerless deer. Ahh... "His definition"  No pictures were allowed.  I told him he could he could hold it arms stretched out in front of him.  No deal....  Well we have camp meat for next weeks Cool Springs Bear/Deer hunt in Madison.  I think any traditional harvest is a trophy.  Tasty too...  Kinda like veal...  Milk fed....  :laughing:

I went out Tues evening, saw a dozen from the same stand I killed the 8 pt.

I moved to another stand tonight-with lots of grass, honeysuckle, and Catalpa trees. I had a doe and button buck at 20 yards-the wind swirled and ended that.    :wavey:  

Been kind of quiet on here...

Congrats Travis!

I'm giving everyone a head start.
Was told my longbow will be sent early next week.  I'll probably be in Madison when it arrives. May have to drive home one afternoon!

Hi Everyone,

I'm pretty delayed in posting this.  I shot this one at last light on opening day a few weeks back using my home made BBO.  I used a cedar arrow topped with an Ace Standard broadhead.  The shot was about 6 yards and everything performed flawlessly.  Unfortunately I only got one picture due to a coyote harassing me while I was field dressiing.  This is my second deer with a bow.  My hunting buddy shot one about 5 minutes after I did.  I couldn't have asked for a better start to the season.

   

Good luck this season.  Shoot straight and be safe.
Jake

This was my first sit of the year as I have been taking my 12 year old son about every evening, I am typically the guide these days and rarely the shooter!  

60# @ 28" Bear Grizzly
29.5" Beman MFX Classics with 50gr inserts
125 grain 3 bladed muzzy

10yd shot from treestand, slightly quartering to me. watched her go down with 45 yards.
