I filled my buck tag on opening day this year. Shot this one about 7pm saturday, right when it started to rain.

He came running in off of the neighbors field with another small 8....stopped at 25 yds. Couldnt see his rack until small buck started walking away and he turned to follow giving me a slighly quartering away shot. He mule kicked at the shot and ran about 50 yds and stopped. Walked back around my stand and bedded down 30 or so yds away. Could see him through a small window in the leaves. With the rain I didnt want him getting away so I threaded another arrow throgh the small opening and he finally died.

After talking to neighbor, turns out he left his stand early because of the rain and he spooked them across the fence and right to me! Talk about lucky. No tail cam pics of him this year, but one last year on a scrape line in Oct.....enjoy.

Here he is last year. Thoughts on age??? I'm thinking 4 y.o. this year.

From: Jeff in MN ........ No Violations Reported on this individual No Violations Reported on this individual No Violations Reported on this individual ....... Date: 16-Sep-13


Looks like another year of age looks good on him. Very nice, well posed picture too. Congrats.

Probably 4 years, have his teeth checked out.

One of the biggest bucks I ever saw on stand was during a light steady rain. He didn't stop long enough to get a shot and never saw him again. You had a whole bunch more luck on Saturday.

My wife wanted to deer hunt to night so we decided to go for deer and not bear. I put her in a spot with 4 big trails coming to a field. I set up on the other end of the field to scout for later hunts. At 6pm, this doe came out at 15 yards. I hit her a little high but still got lungs. I don't know if people want to know, but I am using a Bear Grizzly that draws 45#. I also use Gold Tip 3335 arrows with 100gr inserts and 100gr Stingers.

BT Just got home so here's my story...hunting on a small 40 acre parcel and the 1st week my sightings were to far away from my stand. So Sat am, my 11 yr old son and I snuck in and put up a ladder stand closer to the action. My son is taking credit because he picked out the tree! At 5:30 I see movement to the North and it's him making his way to the bean field. At 25 yds and behind a tree I draw but he steps out facing me! He then gets a slight whiff of where I cleared a shooting lane and he spins and hops back behind the tree. He then heads away and loops out to the bean field where I can't see him...40 minutes later I pick out movement and he's out in the field and heading across at 30 yds, I draw and his next step he AGAIN turns to face me while he eats beans. Finally, he decides to come back toward the tree line and when he stops at 25 yds I draw and release. Hit was high and a bit back, but he crashes thru woods and then all is quiet. Not sure so I sneak out and then head back at 12:30am...blood everywhere and found him 100 yds from shot!! What a Rush!!!

Very nice deer, Kingston, and all others as well. Good story as well--of course your son should get all the credit! Hard to guess the inches on him not being able to see the entire left side, but thinking its close to the right I'd put him right at the 152-154" gross mark.

I put some meat in the freezer this weekend. I really have to laugh after this one though. I used to think that when a deer ran back to the thick stuff on my property and made for a 150yd drag through alders and marsh grass that was a lot of work. Going out to hunt on my recent trip to AK was way more work than that. I was smiling all the way back to the truck with her.

Well, everyone likes to read the stories that go along with the pictures….so here goes mine.

Sunday, yesterday, October 20, 2013, I woke up with what I thought was plenty of time to get ready and walk out the door to my stand. By the time I got dressed in the garage and looked at my phone it was already 6:00, the time that I wanted to be on stand and ready, so I really had to move to get out there. I didn’t check the time, but I think I was in my stand before hunting hours, good thing it was overcast and dark for that time of day. I get stuff situated and start to settle in……crap, I don’t have my release! Oh well, I haven’t had a deer in range for 4 years almost to the day, why would today be any different?. I heard what sounded like a buck rubbing on a tree to the north of me at about 6:45, so I gave a few doe grunts in that direction. A few seconds later I heard what I thought was a grunt to the west of me, then another to confirm what I had heard, so I gave two more doe grunts back and I heard a response coming closer. I could hear a deer walking though the tall grass and water coming towards me so I grabbed my bow and got set. I couldn’t believe it was a doe coming in, but I’m not one to pass a shot on any legal deer so that didn’t matter at that point. She had to go behind two aspen trees for me to draw back on her, once her head got behind the trees I started my draw, at half draw I noticed her head looking towards me around the trees from her rear side so I had to hold at half draw until she moved her head back behind the trees. Once she did that I completed my draw and ………CRAP!!, I can’t see my sights, maybe my peep was twisted but that was verified that it wasn’t twisted at all. She now turns to cross by on a trail that goes to the north past my stand, which is an old Lone Wolf climber about 6’ off the ground in a white birch. I line up the shot as best as I can and loose the arrow. The arrow looks to fly true and I see a red “X” open on the ribcage right where I was looking. She jumps and does a mule kick and runs about 15 yards and stops to look around to figure out what just happened, no tail twitching or any other sign that she has been hit. I’m really starting to wonder if I was just imagining where the arrow supposedly went or not as she is standing there looking around chewing her cud, wondering if I should grab another arrow to shoot again……..then I see her take a little stumble as she is standing there, then another and then she drops. Talk about a rush and easy tracking job that I had my 7 year old daughter “help” me with, it was also nice to have her there to help hold a leg when I was field dressing the deer. The pics are a little blurry because she took them for me, not bad for a 7 year old though, I’m happy with how they turned out.

I’ll post another picture later. Sorry for the long story, but I was pretty excited about this kill, not only because I haven’t had a shot opportunity for 4 years and haven’t killed a deer for about 6 years, but it is the first deer kill in 3 seasons since I got my newest bow.

It is about the middle of the reed on the true talker grunt call. It is higher pitched that a young buck grunt but lower than a doe bleat. I've heard several does over the years grunt with each other to communicate while moving, mostly it is with their fawns but they will grunt to other does. I've heard it way more during gun season than I have during bow season, since they seem to be pushed around a little more during gun season. It seems to be a way that they can keep their core group together while on the move or get back together if they get separated.

I'm sure that you have heard a doe grunt at some point in your hunts over the many years you have put in.?.?

Here is another picture of my doe kill. It will help explain the release and sights deal in the other post. Just was trying to dress up a doe kill story a little to add a little excitement to it. It was exciting to me, my first traditional deer kill. The shot was just under 5 yards and the track was about 15 yards from the shot. I was about 6' off the ground in a white birch though, it helps that there is a spruce tree about 2' away for some cover, if I went any higher I would lose my spruce tree cover.

From: FiveRs ........ No Violations Reported on this individual No Violations Reported on this individual No Violations Reported on this individual ....... Date: 21-Oct-13


GVS-

It's an RER bow, made just a few miles from my house.

A doe grunt is much lower in pitch/volume than the bawl of a bleat.

From: GVS ........ No Violations Reported on this individual No Violations Reported on this individual No Violations Reported on this individual ....... Date: 21-Oct-13


Of course that is an RER. I should have recognized the grip, limb and tip. Kevin sure makes a nice looking bow that shoots equally good.

From: FiveRs ........ No Violations Reported on this individual No Violations Reported on this individual No Violations Reported on this individual ....... Date: 21-Oct-13


Naz-

You got it, much different sound than a doe bleat. An untrained ear won't tell the difference between a doe grunt and a buck grunt. I've been fooled many times in the woods. I still need the visual to tell them apart.

From: TheLama ........ No Violations Reported on this individual No Violations Reported on this individual No Violations Reported on this individual ....... Date: 21-Oct-13


Does grunt to their fawns all the time and when in a herd/group I am guessing to other deer.

I got a call at work this morning from a guy that was really excited and whispering. Excited and whispering, that can only mean one thing. It was Rainer Lemke. He had just dropped the string on his home made bow on an eight point buck and he thought the hit was pretty good. I had helped Rainer make that bow and the cool part was I did little more that help with the glue up, tillering and guidance where needed. Rainer had done the design and the rest so this bow was quite special to him. This was the first deer had shot with the bow.

COGRATULATIONS Rainer!!!!

I sat pretty much all day Thursday and seen only 1 deer in the woods. I seen more deer driving to a different spot in the afternoon then actually sitting in the tree. I went back to the same spot Friday morning where I sat Thursday night and had one small buck come in around 9am and that was it. I packed up about 1030 and went to scout a funnel nearby and there was no sign which is been a common theme as of late in that area so I left. I met up with my uncle because he wanted to hunt his property in the morning and we went to a place where he has hunted before. We walked in about 230 to the back portion of the property and my uncle directed me down a old 4 wheeler path and I got to the spot he picked for me at about 3 and finally picked a tree that I really didn’t like but was tired over looking. Frustrated with the tree, my drop rope attached to my climber got tangled around the climber to make matters worse, so I didn’t get much more than 10 ft in the air.. to many branches around and sweating my butt off, I gave up. Anyway, it was about 345 and I had my first small 8pt come in to about 40 yards to the north of me. He got downwind of me and knew something was wrong and took off to the east. About 20 minutes later I had another buck come from the south after I had just finished rattling. He came in and got down wind of me and took off back to the south. Neither of them blew their horns but I figured my night was over. Guess not, about 10 mins after that a spike came in from the same direction the last buck did and he was just about to get downwind of me and he stopped, looked back to the south east and his tail went up and he blasted out of there. I just shut my camera off that I was recording him with (wild game innovations camera that attaches to my stabilizer) and I look back and here is a real nice 8pt standing at 20 yards. I clipped my release and start to pull and my release comes off, the knocks I have on my arrows are long and if the loop isn’t turned right sometimes the release wont clip. The buck starts to walk through the lane I had to shoot through and the reason I picked that tree so I reclip my release and pull back and grunt and let it fly. I see the arrow stick him and he takes off to the southwest and I see the arrow come back out the way it went in about 10 yards after but as he is running I can see the blood coming out. I lost sight of him at about 60 yards and didn’t hear any crashing. I got down about 15 minutes later to look at my arrow just because i didnt here him crash and when i did i seen the blood trail. I weighed him at the taxidermist before we caped him out and he weighed just over 190 pounds. I did think it was a little bit bigger, but I will take it. I wish I would have gotten it on video camera.

Here is the blood trail. The arrow actually went through but it the opposite front leg and broke off. I thought I lost that part but when we were cutting it up we found it buried in the lower part of the leg. Thank you Muzzy MX3's. I just switched to these this year because of bad luck with a Grimm Reaper. I think my mind is made up and Im going to stick with these!

Nice story and deer BBD. It sure is funny how when we aren't quite comfortable or we are missing something and you feel like it can't possibly happen, that uncertainty will show you how things can change quickly.

I like the story of the arrow. That kind of happened the same way with me. The deer I shot, just made a scrape about 25 yards from my stand that sits under an apple tree. He gets done pawing and urinating down his hocks, eats a few apples, and heads right down the trail I just walked in on. At twelve yards broadside, I bleated at him. He didn't stop, he just looked at me in mid-stride and I had to take the shot. I lead him just slightly, hitting him a little far forward (just inches), fortunately missing his blade. Hit him just above the heart severing the connection where his heart meats his lungs. He died in seconds. Not a single movement after a three second run.

As he left, I saw about 4 or 5 inches of arrow sticking out of the entrance. So like you, I had penetrated externally, but what seemed like it was not a pass through. That surprised me. Especially at twelve yards. I assumed I hit the blade and the obvious reason the arrow's energy was absorbed allowing minimal penetration. Like you, when gutting the deer and cutting his esophagus free, I could feel a pencil sized piece of arrow in his chest. I saved it and the next day found the fletch end that I could see, that was at about five yards from the impact site. I followed the bloodtrail (all fifty yards of it) twice, back and forth. I still ciuld not find the killing end of the arrow? I walked back to the impact sight, and found it burried in the ground on the opposite side of the deer where I shot it. So it was a pass through after all, but the deer being in mid-stride, apparently snapped that arrow immediately, into three pieces, and the fletch sticking out was simply like a dart stuck into the deer until some brambles knocked it out. I've broke arrows on deer, but this was a first? Arrow passes through, snaps immediately, leaving the fletch in the side of the deer, a six inch piece stuck in the cavity, and the remainder stuck in the ground at the impact site.

I butchered the shoulders up today, and that's when I absolutely realized I missed the blades on both shoulders. I took a picture of the arrow in its three pieces.

Sunday November 3rd I was already wore down from a tough work week and an all day dark to dark hunt the day before. I woke that morning with a terrible migraine and decided to take the morning off. With the high winds and feeling like crap I really had to motivate myself to go out in the afternoon. I decided to hunt an easy access spot 100 yards behind my camper. I also decided to use my climber. I thought the hunt would be a debaucle, I was noisy with the climber. sweating profusely, the tree angle was wrong etc...

About 3 I decided to look behind me. There on the woods road was a large bodied deer about 50 yards away. With the high winds I never heard him approach. He stood scanning the woods for 10 minutes, then turned to leave. As he turned I blew my grunt call, he turned back and took a few steps into the woods, still no shot. After about 5 minutes of looking for the "other deer" he trotted into the thick stuff going away from me. Once out of sight I grunted twice and let out a snort wheeze. Nothing for a few minutes so I figured he went on his way.

The next thing you know he's busting into the woods and coming fast. He gets to about 12 yards and stops behind two trees. He stays there facing me for about 3 minutes, all of which I'm at full draw. All of a sudden the wind swirls a tad and he's running the other way. But I bleat and he stops at 70 yards. I then slipped my grunt call into my jacket and gave a few soft grunts trying to "cast" them behind me. It worked he came back although higher on the hill, so almost level with me. I had one shot at 38 yards through a small opening. I thought I was perfect but at the last second the arrow hits a limb on a sapling kicking the arrow left. I'll try to shorten up this already long story. He was hit in liver intestines, very sporadic blood. One of my toughest tracking jobs, but I found him monday morning deader than a doornail about 600 yards from the shot.

This hunt was a blast for me, excluding the crappy shot. I have been loosing a little of the fire in the belly feeling I have always had for hunting. Part of it was just being busy with life. But part of it was I was getting too wrapped up in the whole big deer, what's he score thing. I decided this year if a particular deer gets me worked up, I'm shooting it. Sorry about the long post. Good luck to all those hunting yet. I'm heading back to camp later today to doe hunt and ready some stands for gun season.

11-3-13 I was sitting about 100yrds into a open swamp, I could see pretty good in every direction through the trees and back to the ag field where I watched a few does being harassed by this guy. He ran the does and fawns off the field and they came into my decoy set-up. Was ready to take the doe after I was sure nothing was following but a back-yard mechanic decided to wind up his project and they scattered into the willow thickets. After not seeing anything in the field I decided to give another rattle sequence. I usually stay alert for a couple minutes after a rattle and nothing was immediate so I put on my heavier gloves as the wind chilly. As soon as I got them on I heard a grunt and footsteps behind me. I turned to see this guy coming in fast from the field edge, I quickly shoved the gloves in the pockets grabbed the bow and made the 20yd shot. He ran 50yrds, stopped, wobbled and dropped. From rattle to dead in about 3 minutes. I waited another 20min till close time so my buddy could help drag:)

Well here he is boys, my first iowa buck. had this guy at 35 yards last night but decided to pass because I'm just not comfortable taking that shot. sat a different spot on the farm this morning and at 6:45 a doe came by at 15 yards with him right behind her. I got both lungs and he ran about one hundred yards around the hill and died. my biggest buck yet shot with my dads dwyer longbow and 175 grain woodsman broadheads. Couldnt be any happier.

GREAT BUCK DUDE!

From: 10orbetter ........ No Violations Reported on this individual No Violations Reported on this individual No Violations Reported on this individual ....... Date: 10-Nov-13


Thanks again.

It is mostly all poplar, white oak and red-stem dogwood. I've planted over 100 trees in variations of white cedar, white pine, spruce, and balsam. It is a good mix. I have also over-seeded the trails with throw and grow. The only time an ATV goes in is for a drag. I never sit the same stand twice in a row and do not allow the farmer to spread manure down in the fields until after gun season. It took seven years before I took my first buck off the property. Never enter the woods during hunting season until the rut. Sept. Oct., I always hunt the perimeter of the fields. The very center of the woods is left as a refuge. Never do I enter it. Still, the woods is a hammer shaped funnel where bucks transition through. It is not a core area to any bucks! It has become a bit of a core area for does. Great place for a doe to sneak away and drop her fawns. Also have a strip taken out of production between the swamp and woods and another strip in the middle that is a great staging area. Planted an island of trees out in the field. You can see it in one of the trail camera pictures. It is a view looking from the swamp. This place is not perfect but, sure is fun! Very grateful and lucky to have it.

I shot this buck on 11/7/13. He was the 2nd buck I seen that morning. Heard him grunt and chase a fawn that I was watching. I grunted back at him and he came within 20 yards. The hit was in the shoulder blade but it got through to the lungs.

Well I was still looking for some freezer meat, and not seeing much on the property I usually hunt, so I hunted my cousin's 200 acre farm. The land there or anywhere around there is not managed. Basically most people are meat hunters around there, including the few people that hunt this farm. It took me many years of passing deer only to see them get shot later before I realized I needed to find a better spot. I decided to go get me some meat.

So needless to say, my intent was to shoot a doe or a buck because I had three buck tags left. I shot this deer yesterday morning. It is just a 2 year old 8. The story is better than the deer, and is a testiment to making a poor shot and still recovering the animal. I feel bad it suffered, and take great time practicing. Unfortunately at the release of the arrow, my string caught a button strap that fastens my coat sleaves tighter. I did not have it buttoned because it lessens the flexibility in my arm. The strap has been removed.

The shot was gut/liver. After the shot, the deer ran a short bit, then did the usual slow, sickly walk. His back was not hunched, his tail was not wagging. I assumed gut only. I waited two hours, snuck to my arrow, and it had both dark blood indicating liver as well as green stink indicating gut. I knew the shot was centered in the middle of the deer but not far enough back to be intestines in my opinion. I was certainly hoping I hit liver. I backed out and came back 7 hours after the shot. Pretty decent blood...then spotty....then none....five beds along the way with very little blood. He would bed two or three times in each spot, indicating how uncomfortable he was. The blood was dry, so I never felt like he was alive, but knew he still hadn't bedded for his last time. I had trailed for 250 or 300 yards at this point. He stayed on the path of least resistance. It was a prettty direct line. When the blood finally quit, he was very near a field edge. There is a sliver of woods that is virtually unhunted because it's so thick with brambles and burdox, no one typically enters. Of course it makes a perfect bedding area. There were several tracks in the field coming from this trail. I was losing daylight, and figured I would look in that four acre sliver today.

Rain and snow in the forecast, but I had no blood at the end anyway, so at this point I would be doing a grid search. I walked in through this sliver running the edge, zigzagging my way to that field edge. I walk out to the field, and the deer is laying right where I stood last, the night before. Dead, stiff, and right out in the open?

To sum it up, he was not dead when I tracked him 7 hours later. He died perhaps exactly where I stood contemplating my next move for the following day. He was gut and liver shot. He lived at least 10 hours, and likely longer, because that's the time from the shot to the time I left after tracking.

I've read that a gut shot deer is 4 to 12 hours before death. Liver is approximately 2 hours before death? If you make a bad shot like I did, my suggestion is this. Give it as long as you can. If weather is cool and coyotes are few, let them lay overnight, even if it was a morning shot. I'm sure there are times where the deer will die sooner, and likely take longer. Of course making the perfect shot is what we strive for, but shit happens. If it does, take my advice and give them as much time as possible. I'm not sure the trail would have been as easy to follow, and I would have had to start earlier to avoid this rain and snow mix, but my deer was not dead after ten hours, and bumping him would normally make matters worse. Where was he when I was standing there the night before? I'm not sure? He could have been bedded a few feet from me and met his demise in that field later? Just no idea. Real crazy for him to die right there though, and I got very very lucky!

I already felt terrible about the bad shot and the suffering this animal must have felt. It would have been magnified if I didn't recover it. The deer bleed internally and the gut was preventing blood loss. What kept him alive (besides his untouched lungs and heart) for so long, still surprises me. His cavity was absolutely filled with blood.

It is little things like that, that can go wrong with any "high percentage" bow shot. That is why I will not hunt in the rain. Glad you were able to recover your buck and that the weather allowed you follow a blood trail the next day!!

From: Pete-pec ........ No Violations Reported on this individual No Violations Reported on this individual No Violations Reported on this individual ....... Date: 11-Nov-13


Thanks 5R's. I was not able to follow blood (after a while) even on the day I shot it. Basically I made an error or an oversight and made a horrible shot, that potentially could have cost me a deer and worse yet an animal's life for nothing. I feel bad about the shot, I could have shown a photo of a dead deer and said nothing about the bad shot, but I thought perhaps my bad shot could potentially help out someone else if they find themselves in this sort of predicament. I was way lucky. I would have given a hard target search for the entire day if I had to, but divine intervention lended his hand and for some reason had the deer die in the open for an easy recovery? I believe for that, I needed to man up, share the experience, and hopefully help the next guy who screws up a "high percentage" bow shot.

Once again, a liver shot deer does not (always) die in two hours (like so many souces say), and a gut shot deer needs as much time as you can give it. Like FiveRs put it, weather plays an important factor. I have snow cover on the ground. Blood trailing would be impossible at this point, and we all know how easily a deer blends in to cover, even if we are looking intently for them? This deer was potentially a few feet from where we lost blood the night before, and he was not seen, and we were really looking. He decided to enter an open field after we left before he died. Crazy lucky!

11-11-13 I was watching a group of 6 does+fawn feed in a field when this buck came out smelling everywhere they had been. After a few minutes he began chasing them(grunting the whole way). Luck would have it the 2 of the does ran my way. He followed and got drawn, I start to take aim and notice my peep is turn and i can't look threw it. Then i lower my arm and use my tongue to twist the peep. I did get the peep to a position where i could see threw it. However i didn't make a great shot it was back a bit and luckily i got some liver. I gave him 2 hours tracked him into an open field then realized that was a bad idea backed out till morning and 50 yards off the field edge there he was!!

Oct. 31st I slept in and got on stand at 9:10 Saw a few does from a distance walking in. Alittle after 10 i tried rattling and saw another doe and had a spike come in shortly after. Around 11:45 i did a grunt/doe bleat sequence and at 1155 glanced over my shoulder to see this guy running up logging road directly to me. I had just enough time to turn, grab my bow, hit full draw, mouth grunt to stop him and shoot. He was close and i hit him about 6 inches behind the shoulders just missing thd spine. The arrow exited high brisket running through right side lung and severing arteries off the heart. He made it 200 yards back down hill before crashing. It all happened very fast and was a thrill to experience. Not the biggest buck ( 120") but i'm ok with that!

Hey Squid, you had a good season. Did you get any of those near my land?

I have been pretty much offline for a while. Been in the woods every day for about 4 weeks. Retirement has it's advantages. Was real busy the last 8 days.

This story started Tuesday Nov 5th and ended today. I shot this buck about two hours before sunset on the 5th. I watched him run 35 yards out of the woods and another 200+ yards up hill across CRP to the crest of the hill which in this case was the horizon. Was not sure if he went down near the horizon or went past it. It was a 23 yard shot with him angled away. He had snuck thru behind me and over to my right side. Anyway, did not see the arrow in flight, luma nock did not light, no arrow to be found and only 5 specs of blood in the first 50 yards after waiting an hour. Weather said to be forecast good till noon the next day so I left him over night.

Next morning heavy fog that had frozen into quarter inch thick frost on every blade of weed and grass in that crp. No chance to find more blood but tried and then went into an 8 hour pattern search before the rain got so bad I was soaked and had to quit. That was the storm that covered a huge area of western Wisconsin on the 6th.

Thursday and Friday hunted the same stand with hope of getting help from the crows and doing more pattern searches of the CRP during mid day. Focused on the area near the horizon then worked farther and farther on the other side. No help or luck finding him.

Friday night I headed back to MN to hunt part of the gun season that opened on Saturday. Didn't see much and my mind was on getting back to look for this buck and do more hunting where I was actually seeing deer.

Yesterday I got back in time for an evening hunt, sat that same stand but still no crow activity. Plan was to hunt till 10 or so this morning and then get back to pattern searching cross wind figuring my nose might help by now.

Around 8 this morning 2 crows start landing and taking off only 55 yards from the woods. Since I saw that buck run at least 200 yards past the woods I knew it could not be my buck. After 20 minutes I had to go look. Well, it was him. All I can figure because he went down in line with some big trees in my line of sight I could not see him go down and somehow there was a second deer that I saw go over the horizon.

Hit was slightly high and just forward of the hind quarter and stopped by the opposite side front shoulder. My arrow was totally inside of him. It was a mess inside but think it went through the opposite side liver and lung. As you can see yote got to him. Meat was worthless and the cape is probably going to slip.

After calling the local warden he said it would be OK to cape him out right where he was laying and let the yote and crows clean up the meat. So after tagging him and capeing the story finally had a conclusion.

Now, back in MN for the rest of the gun season.

A little closer look at the head gear. Yes the top of his right ear did get a chunk chewed off. Otherwise no real yote damage to the cape.

Serb, if you are still around reading this consider this my equivalent to your buck in the back of your truck pictures. ;-)

Is it me or do the majority of the bucks look like their antlers are a little cropped this year, including the buck I posted. Tines look a little short while beams look thicker. Just an observation. Congratulations to all.

From: Jeff in MN ........ No Violations Reported on this individual No Violations Reported on this individual No Violations Reported on this individual ....... Date: 14-Nov-13


not sure about the rest but the area I hunt is known for short tines, especially the G1's. What should be 8's often don't have any G1's. It is farm country so not a food shortage, has to be genetics.

Jeff-

That sounds the same as one of my properties, if they have both G1's they are rarely over 2 inches, most bucks have 1 short G1 or none at all and it is farm country near the fringe of big woods.

"Jeff in MN ........Hey Squid, you had a good season. Did you get any of those near my land?" No, Two were shot at Two Creeks and the last one off of Woodland Dr. not to far from the Fawn now HogWild. I also got a nice bear, 310lbs. I hung up the bow as I have enough meat but will take the muzzle loader out - the pantry needs a few deer, I might as well help them out. There were only three hit by auto's on 310 so far, an all time low, two on Woodland Dr., and one on Columbus. The Dunes hunters have a total of seven and only three does out of the seven - none close to your land unless Jack, or the other guy arrowed one. We seem to have more bucks than does all of a sudden and some nice one too. The picture is one I hope to find next bow season - he's only a mile or less from your property.

I wonder why people cover their faces? I see quite a few people that are part of the witness protection program who also partake in bow hunting. I guess it beats sneaking up on a mobster and shanking him instead?

Maybe Charlie was supposed to be at work that day, and called in sick instead? ;-)

" If you want to remain anonymous that is your right"

Yes, it is anyones right to remain anonymous. If that's what they choose, good for them.

"Serb wasnt a coward like Fipster"

How do you know he is a coward? What gives you the right to say that to someone? It is you who is the coward, illegally baiting and calling people names on the internet. Grow up! Just because you feel you are right all of the time, doesn't make it so. I joined to learn and hear stories about bow hunting. I didn't join to have a person or person's bully someone else or call them names because of something they don't like. We can agree to disagree, but you sir take it way too far!

The pics from Nov. 13th and Oct. 13th are indeed the same hunter. Look at the bow in the pics.

FIP either has ag-tags, multiple earn-a-buck stickers in the CWD area, or one of those hunts was out of state.

I didn't measure the neck, I got my first wolfskin back in '99 and I think I've had the wool since about '08. Btw, your wife might not be able to tell us apart with the same camo...Lol!

Thanks RC, smokey, 10orbetter and havoc.

This is the first bow buck I have killed on private land in 32 years. I went to my normal stomping grounds in bayfield county, hunted the first week of November and saw 3 deer, 1 wolf and almost zero deer sign. Seriously, it is really pathetic up there. It's always been a challenge but in 16 years of hunting Bayfield County I've never seen so little sign. A friend who has killed numerous P&Y bucks hunted 13 days and saw 1 doe. Another friend saw zero deer and 5 wolves. I heard the local registration station registered 5 deer for the entire season as of last weekend.

So I came home and shot this buck on the 50 acres I live on.

I shot my doe yesterday. Didn't want to shoot one before my buck because I was using the doe for bait.

Anyway, it was 8:45 when she walked in and gave me a good 30 yard shot. Hit looked good but what happened next confused me. She trotted 20 yards, stood for half minute then got wobbly and folded up. I figured down for the count. Well after about a minute she stands up and walks slowly away and got out of sight. Now I figure I better give her a good hour. So hour and a half later I take the trail, massive blood up to the spot where she fell, and after. Literally two lines of blood sixteen inches apart, entry side line bright red, exit side line dark red. So, figured liver and something else, but what. After at total of 40 yards just drops every 5 feet or so and dark red. OK, at about 90 yards into the track I backed off to give her more time. Went and got the sled, 4 wheeler, and camera, and took a stand down. Picked up the trail at 3.5 hours after the shot. Figured plenty of time with there being a fair amount of bright red blood at the start of the track. She never bedded, looked like she fell twice just before where she laid at 140 total yards of walking a drunk persons wiggly line. She was hit center of the entry side lung and center of the exit side lever. More angled away than I thought. She was one tough doe to Walk that far given how she was hit and all the blood she lost. Running I could see it but that walk took her some time and energy.

Now, package the meat, pack for the gun season up at Hayward and head up there ASAP.

Pic with two lines of blood, liver blood to the right and lung blood to the left, harder to see the lung blood.

Now tell me how a deer bleeding like this walked 140 yards. Tough critters.

Thanks to Treefarm for his valuable second opinion over the phone. We both figured this deer was dead but hey a dead deer now is also a dead dear a few hours later.

Glad to hear that you got her. Question though. Is that picture showing the entry? If so how could the deer be hit quartering "away" with entry hitting lung exit hitting liver? Or is my reading disorder kicking in?

Sweet buck Mike.

From: 10orbetter ........ No Violations Reported on this individual No Violations Reported on this individual No Violations Reported on this individual ....... Date: 20-Nov-13


His description makes sense, I think? if the exit wound is on the left with lung blood on the left, the deer must have been quartering away and the entry was on the flip side, or right side and high enough to hit the liver. Anyway, congratulations.

From: Jeff in MN ........ No Violations Reported on this individual No Violations Reported on this individual No Violations Reported on this individual ....... Date: 20-Nov-13


My mistake, the pic is entry on the left side, exit on the right side farther back about the same elevation. I meant to say quartering toward me.

What do you people think of the pic of the blood with the bubbles? That was dark red blood so I expect it came from the liver but bubbles on blood from liver? Seems unusual.

And I almost forgot -

Here's number 1 son Michael with his first archery killed deer ever - check out the smile!

Michael's shot was at 12 yards as he opted for the smaller of two deer as the larger one would simply not present a shot he reports. The doe traveled some 80 yards before tipping over! Rage in the cage as they say!

Bent on a career in the Shooting Sports Industry he claims that he'll do that in his off time as a linebacker for the Saints! At 220 pounds and a size 13 shoe, age 14.....

We'll see!
