Tuesday night I finally got an encounter with this 10. He came in at 4 and gave me a quartering too shot at 23 yards.

He ran hard 100 yards then stopped and a second later I thought I heard him falling over but just after that I catch a glimpse of a deers ass crossing the creek there.

I sat in the stand another hour then climbed down to check my arrow it looked good but one side had a little stomach matter on it. So I snuck out and waited till morning to look for him.

While waiting to climb down had a parade  of does cruise down the creek along with this nice 7 pointer.





When I went back the next morning there was good blood for the first few bounds then just small specks. I walked up to where I thought I heard him fall last night and there he was. Guess I should have just checked that night but the last thing I wanted to do was bump a deer hit back. Ended up being a good hit just clipped the stomach when it exited and that plugged the exit hole.

Damn now those are some beams. Maine sure produces some nice deer just a shame what happened to the north woods herd. Remember the pictures my dad had from the 80s and 90s and man they killed some bucks. Like to go back up and hunt and have done some scouting the last two years bear hunting see some sign but itís still pretty sparse.

Yeup itís almost desolate now. Good thing we only have one tag because it takes the whole month to find a good one sadly

Congrats again
