Unforgetable opening week

Reply
 
Well me and Undertaker headed to our favorite wma for the opening week. Once we got there we found that all of our favorite spots were basically unhuntable. So we spent most of opening day scouting for some new spots. After not seeing crap we decided to go hog squealing Thursday evening. Under taker blew the squealer 1 time and about 3 min later I spotted a doe running strait towards us. When she got to 40 yds I drew my bow back she then stopped at 35 yds directly behind a tree. After about 30 seconds of holding it back she took off again undertaker stopped her with a ma and I released. I hit her but not all that great. We did recover the deer and I was no longer a bow hunting virgin.

Saturday morning we decided to deer hunt in the middle of all the squirrel hunters. Sitting there all morning thinking wow what a poor decision all the sudden under taker comes on the radio excited as hell saying he just shot a doe. This doe was browsing at 150 yds and a quick fawn bleat called her in to 30 yds and she stopped behind a tree leaving her neck exposed so he shot it. After a short bloody trail we recovered it. Now he too is now longer a bow hunting virgin.

The muzzy mx3 100 was the broad head of choice for us and performed great huge entrance and exit holes on both deer and awesome blood trails. I will post the pics as soon as undertaker develops them.

I agree with you...don't give away your secrets. Congras Live Bait, and good luck to you....you too Tunica buck.

I personally introduced live bait and the undertaker to bowhunting, taught them everything that I could. These two guys was one of the most egar groups of guys that I have ever taught archery to. Now both guys are like brothers to me so I am very proud of both of them for their first deer kills with a bow!( Even if I am the gangreen king) As far as the" tell all" that's a runnin joke between both of these guys and myself so If the rest of the sportsman can't take a joke about something as simple as "tell all" screwem! Because there is folks on here that hunt public land that think they own it and they will never tell anything about their spots.

you are lucky to have a couple of good fellas that bow hunt with you. i am the lone ranger of bow hunting in my circle of friends. I am trying to figure it all out by my self. I got pegged by 2 does opening morning at 21 yards. they smelled me as soon as a saw them. too thick for a clean shot. good luck to you guys this season, and wish the same on me.....I need it!

They not to bad! Lol! They keep me on my toes and like to give me a lot of hell. But other than they are ok. I just can't get outhunted by these 2 or I will never live it down. I wounded 1 doe a few years back and all I hear from them is "gangrene"! With buddies like these I don't need enemies! Just like I tell them bow hunt enough and I gurantee you you will wound a deer sooner or later.

The Student has become the Master!!!
OK...I will give credit where credit is do. Tunicabuck...aka "MR.Ganggreen"...aka "Chee-wee" is responsible for getting me and Live Bait hooked on bow hunting. If it wasn't for him i think we would still be hunting tree rats in October. So there you go...theres your pat on the back. Now get ready because here comes your kick in the butt! When me and Live Bait started bow hunting we did not know what we were doing. We truly were students. Soaking up all the info and knowledge we could get. The very first year we bow hunted Tunicabuck killed a doe opening day. He was the master and we were the students! Now.....Well......now it is a different story. Since we started bow hunting together Live Bait and Tunicabuck are tied with bow kills and I am ahead by one. I even took Tunicabuck to my stand last year and let him shoot a hog. So it looks like the student has become the Master! By the way... Tunicabuck does lead both me and Live Bait in the ganggreen category. Good luck this year T-Buck...youe gonna need it...lol!

Thanks PAL
Undertaker thanks! I believe that you guys learned quick, and quickly come along and kicked my butt! That's ok mabey the teaching will look good on my rusume, lol! Just remember what I told you guys you "WILL WOUND A DEER WITH YOUR BOW" sooner or later if you bow hunt long enough. Its bow hunting! I am sure everyone wants to shoot like widowmaker but he is a diamond in the rough! I am sure even the best has gangrened a deer! Just askem. But who has the most gun kills? That's right baby, cheewee! I will give you my autograph on our next hunt :-)! Just think the killing starts next week with the old smoke pole! I can't wait bring on the meat! See yall, good luck!

Hog Squealing
What is hog squealing? Were you guys blowing on a fawn bleat and brawler call to call in does, or were you really hunting hogs with a hog squealing call and the does just come to the hog call?

calls
There is a call that is calles "hog sqeeler" I think haydels game calls makes it. The undertaker was blowing it the evening that live bait killed his deer. We hunt in a place overrun with hogs, they will come to a squeel call. However on this evening the doe came running in to the call and live bait put the smack down on her, even if it was a gut shot! LOL! The morning that undertaker killed his deer he seen her about 150 yds away, said what the hell and blew the fawn bleet! The doe turned and ran straight to him! So early season calling works! Fawn bleet and hog squeel is 2 different calls.

The hog squealer is made by premos. It is a hog in distress call. Hogs are very agressive. When they here this call they think something is attacking another hog. So they come in to help and we shoot them! When "Live Bait" saw the deer she was coming from a long way off. I beleive that because she was so far away, she thought it was a fawn bleat. Tow days latter i saw a doe 150 yrds away. I blew my fawn bleat 3 times and she came running in.
