2019 Hunting Stories
« on: October 09, 2019, 11:20:15 AM »
I thought I would start this thread.  Tom was asking about the Cool Springs Gang.  I was able to take a doe on the season opener.  Found a nice pinch point.  She came by about a half hour before dark.  Best blood trail I've ever had.  Fell within sight.  Same setup as last year. 57 pound ACS with 200 gr. left bevel Grizzly.  Took out the top of the heart at 18 yards.

Thought there might be more than just my epistle, well done Bro!
The essence of the hunt for me is to enter nature and observe+ return safely occasionally with the gift of a life taken.

I'm too technologically illiterate to post pictures, and we all know if there's no picture, it didn't happen.

Thanks Jeff.
It was a good first week for all the Cool Springs guys.  I took the pictured doe Wednesday evening at 6:15 p.m.
Saturday evening I took another big doe.  Ironically, when I looked at my watch following the shot, it was exactly 6:15 p.m. again!  Both deer were down within about 75 yards.
64" Foley longbow, 53 @30", Gold tip 400s, 31" with 165 grain Zwickey No Mercy broadheads and 40 grains added to the inserts. Total arrow weight = 560 grain.

Well the annual Cool Springs Traditional Bowhunter Madison county hunt has ended.  I was lucky enough to take a mountain doe.  Shot her at the top of the shoulder, slightly quartering to me.  The exit wound was 2 inches opposite the sternum.  Had stomach contents on the arrow.  Backed out and found her 70 yards from our encounter the next morning.  Had a close encounter with a 10 pointer hunting from the same tree the next morning.  The arrow missed I didnt.  Haaaa.
