Expanded Archery deer
« on: Dec 13, 2023, 03:22:43 PM »
I took up bow hunting this September for the first time at 58 . I did some scouting, set up a camera and a tree stand . My first sit was on 9/9 and I had many chances through out the season. A 6 point Buck came within 15 yards and when I drew back he looked up and bolted. I missed a 4 Point Buck trying to thread the needle through some brush and missed. On 12/7 I arrowed a 96 LB Spike horn. On this 12* morning I saw a nice 8 point Buck following a doe .
Unfortunately way out of reach with a bow. I passed on this same deer on 10/5 he was 7 yards from my stand . This late in the season I was less fussy . He came toward my stand at about 20 yards and when he started to turn I let it fly. I could tell that I hit him good by the thwack and the crashing through the trees. I got down from my stand and had a good 60 yard blood trail to follow. I didnít  get a deer with the gun so I am happy . Here are some photos of the Spike and Deer I had walk by my camera.
