Congrats Olivia and proud Dad!
That’s great Ed, congrats to you both
Saweet! Congrats to Olivia and to Dad! Can you give us a quick story on her deer, Ed? Hunting method, how was the shot, how'd she handle herself, etc, etc.? Obviously she did pretty darn well!
Well... it's real hot and dry here in Arizona. My twin daughters didn't draw any deer tag so I bought them otc deer tags. We hunted in blinds at water holes on weekends. On Saturday I took Sophia out and we missed her target buck by 10 minutes. A nice P&Y buck watered right before we got there (game camera). I took Olivia to a different spot on Sunday. At 11 three bucks were coming in, two 8 points and a spike. I told her to shoot the first one. The spike came in and drank. She made a perfect shot at 25 yards and was stone dead in 30 yards. One of the proudest moments of my life. Sophia gets this weekend to herself. Ed F

Awesome hunt, my biggest buck to date!
Love hunting early season with the stick bow!
I enjoyed an incredible start to the archery season this past weekend... I was hunting over two freshly opened scrapes on our property. This guy came up from the creek and bee-lined directly to the bigger scrape and freshened it up. He was then perfectly broadside, but a young eight that came in following him was immediately to my right and sensed something wasn’t right so I had to wait for what felt like forever and the eight finally petered off down the trail and this guy opened up to a slight quartering angle. Game on! I let it loose entering mid lung and taking out top of heart before exiting top of leg. He ran about 80 yards and piled up... It felt odd punching the tag so quick, but I’ll make the best of the fall yet as I have a few hunts on tap yet and the boys will need some guiding.
Buddy shot this North Dakota buck
Holy wheat field!!!!! That is a Great North Dakota buck!!!
Elite 1 that is a dandy. We need a follow up with score on that one.
Congrats to your buddy Elite1, what a great buck!
Nice! the right side on that buck will score big!
I will certainly let you know pictures really don’t do it justice. It’s going to score really well no mercy will be getting it after the 60 day drying period.
Elite 1 that buck is a stud. big body, thick velvet rack with lots of points. wow
Tagged out in Nebraska. Second buck of 2019. Been a good year! Going to be on doe patrol now!
Jeez Zack, you didn’t waste any time. Grats!
One dinners worth anyway :) ....4finger
congrats to all... nice pics and stories. 4finger, cool pic... well done!
September 15, Saskatchewan
I was blessed with this cool Nebraska buck on 9/27. He was following a scrape line on a property that I had not really hunted in 2 years. Taken with the Bear recurve I purchased at the Pope & Young auction in Omaha. 17 yard shot and 75 yard recovery.
Had a huge snow storm here in Southern Alberta over the weekend. Was lucky enough to get this guy a few days later. 38 yd shot.
Awesome deer to all! Whoo hoo!!
Freezer was empty of venison. I'm happy with this young doe, good eats!
Dino, WTH, I thought you got your photos mixed up. Foot of snow, early fall cape. You guys are tough!
Cazador. Yes. It’s Alberta. All ranges of weather at anytime. There was almost 3 ft of snow on the ground! Combine this with -5 Celsius. My damn hands were frozen solid after shooting him.
Dino....how did you find him? Must of had to track him....no blood trail to follow...WTH
Took my best archery buck to date, the 2.1 Sevr head really did its job. As he lay.
5575, Wow!!! Congrats to all.
I'm seeing a lot of droopy ears in these pics... are we sure they're legit??
Congrats guys! Some beauties being taken.
Great deer, 5575! Any better pics of him??
X2 ^^^^. Come on we need more pics!!!
I'll play. I know there are more deer killed like this that just don't get posted. I am a deer hunter, not a trophy hunter. 23 yd shot. deer went 25 yds and piled up. First kill with a NAP Killzone and I must say the bloodtrail was unreal. 2.5 YO 7 pt weighed 138 lbs dressed.
First deer in Missouri. 10/7/19
Earliest date in the season that I've ever tagged a mature buck. Indiana on 10/13. The H1 circs measured 6-3/8" and 6-5/8".
South Dakota black hills deer.
Two anterless in MO so far.
