Cose but no Cigar 2019 Meat PoleContributors to this thread:
Don't know if we have ever had one of these on here. Week ago Saturday I was hunting a spot that two really nice bucks haunt. About 15 minutes before sun down the wind starts swirling. I bail out of the spot since I am hunting on the ground and not in a blind. On the walk back to the truck, I get to the first hill and the wind straightens out. I turn around to head back to the spot but I see one of the big bucks heading in but won't get there until after dark. I decide to not take a chance of messing up the area and continue on back to the truck. This afternoon I go back to hunt the spot and pull the card out the camera when I get there. I did see the one buck again but he was still too far out to get there before dark. When I got home I checked the card. I really regret not going back the time before when the wind straightened out. The other big buck showed up shortly after I bailed. Would have been a 10 yard shot. Oh and the time is wrong on the camera. He was there within shooting hours.
Should have been close not cose in the tittle. don't know how to edit it so sorry
This is a “didn’t meet” pole.
Had him at 40 but he wouldn’t stop was chasing another bull
I would post, but I like to think that I just gave him another week to live...and it's a story I will still close! lol I would have said chapter but I fear the story may have more chapters...
Recently returned from an antelope hunt in Wyoming......after many long hours in the blind, finally had a good buck come to the waterhole. As the picture shows, I killed my blind instead of the antelope!
https://youtu.be/uinJuS7o9cM Lucky doe. 15 yards with my Hoyt recurve. I missed my spot and she ducked the shot. Glanced it off of her shoulder blade.
Fuzzy phone picture, but about a 130" eight point at 32 yards. I'll regret it later this season but I passed him hoping his buddy would come in. He was a mid 140s 9 point that of course never got within 80 yards. What can I say, if I kill him now I cant hunt bucks the rest of the season!
