Congrats on a nice buck!

 

Now that I’m done made the switch and got rid of the old Leupold VXII 2x7 and replaced it with a Nightforce 3x10x42 SHV illuminated reticle

Gotta love being able to repurpose the kitchen!

Anyone ever have an issue with a crossbow misfiring when you take the safety off? I have a Ten Point Wicked Ridge Invader G3, Went to discharge it, took safety off and it fired without touching trigger. I've had it 5 years and never once had this issue, maybe I cocked it wrong as it is the type where you put the clips on the strands and pull. Regardless that thing is now retired and I will be upgrading for next season to an acudraw!

SOUNDS TO ME YOU NEVER FULLY COCKED IT

I walked my entire farm in 7A (180+ acres) today and only saw rabbit tracks. Could not believe it.

 

My hunting group down in 7R pushed a big section of woods and only kicked out one yearling.

 

Can’t figure it out

Took this guy December 1st. My first deer with a pistol and probably equal to my nicest buck. I took the shot at 4:15 and it felt like a good one. I didn’t see the buck crash but it looked like he was struggling. The pistol was so loud that my ears were ringing so much I couldn’t here him crash either. I went up to look for sign before dark but couldn’t find anything. I walked back to the house, had some food and called my dad. He came over and we went back up to look. It had started snowing now so I was concerned we would lose what sign there may be. Nothing, couldn’t even find dig up tracks from him running. It is a small block of woods behind my house so I knew if he was dead he’d be in there. We gridded it where I saw him heading but still nothing. At this point I was sick, thinking I had either missed the buck or made a bad shot. I called a couple buddies and went back to the house to wait for them. The three of us went back in and started from the shot area again and Cody was able to find some running tracks. After following them a bit I was able to find some blood and my confidence was restored. But still unsure of the hit. The trail picked up and was pretty easy to follow slowly. We got to a spot where we lost blood for a while, but I made an arc and found some more. The trail picked up pretty good again and I was able to find some foamy blood on some goldenrod. Now I felt a lot better. We followed a few more spots and looked up 10 yards away to see my buck dead as could be and covered in snow. The shot was right behind the shoulder and smashed both lungs. I just was looking about 10 yards to close at the initial site of the shot. The buck didn’t make it 100 yards before piling up. The shot was from about 70 yards. Super happy I stuck with it and finally got a deer with the pistol, and a hell of a deer at that! This is the first time I’ve killed a deer that I “had history” with, I have his sheds from at least 2 years but potentially 3. To think that he avoided hunters all those years and I was the one that was in the right place at the right time still stuns me. Hope you enjoy the read, good luck and safe hunting!

Man, I love my a-bolt. Your the only other person I know that has one...I own the savage as well but the browning is so much nicer.

Congrats on a nice buck!

Great bucks!

 

First day off of 10 day vacation. "I'll wait till the last week of reg season to hunt" said no one ever!  Trying something different this year. Going out like its opening day and I'm the only one on the block.  

 

Hoping to join the big brow club 🙏 SmartSelectImage_2017-12-10-12-50-21.thumb.png.6d45e7656c5306385372c07c2b17a834.png

Good luck Bill, go get him. I will be out in West Sparta tomorrow. Passed up on a 6 pointer last Sunday for hopes of a bigger one.
