First Deer with a Bow

Reply
 
It was the opening day of squirrel season but instead of squirrel hunting me and Live Bait decided to go bow hunting. I found myself Saturday morning in the same stand where I had seen a buck the day before. At 7:30 I saw a doe walking along a slew about 100 yards away. I called Live Bait on the radio but he did not answer. So I turned on my GPS w/2way radio to see if I could find Live Bait and let him know a deer was heading his way. Then I decided to try my fawn bleat. After blowing it 3 times she came running in. When she got 40 yards from me it happened!!! Live Bait decided to call me back! My GPS did not have a earbud like my little 2way did and she heard him and stopped. Then she started running again then she stopped behind a tree. All I could see was her head and neck. So I took aim at 30 yards and let’er loose! Whack!!! After the shot I was shaking so bad I nearly fell out of my stand! I could not believe it. I had finally shot a deer with my bow. Then came the nerves; wondering…………… would find her? After following the best blood trail I have ever seen I found her dead, 200 yards from where I had shoot her. It was the most exciting hunt of my life! Public Land Smack Down # 1

Neck Shot
I accidently deleted this report yesterday. Someone else had asked about the neck shot and I told them I've killed 8 deer with a neck shot. They all fell dead in there tracks but they were all killed with a rifle. I was confident with the shot so I took it.

THE SMACKDOWN CONTINUES........
Live Bait, Tunicabuck,& myself aka "The Public Land Predators" have started off fast this year. While me and Live Bait are looking for SMACKDOWN #2 Tunicabuck is looking for #1. He is a little spoiled because last year he was in a lease. He is finding Public Land hunting a little different. We are hope-n he comes around because if not; we will have to revoke his membership in "The Public Land Predators". I guess he will have to join "the private land pansies"!

You S0B!
Turd? That's the best that you could come up with? With Buddies like you I don't need enemies! Widow don't hunt with em they are trouble! Don't worry buddy I always start out slow then finish with a bang! I say I will kill 3 does and 2 bucks this year. What's your prediction for yourself? 1 doe? Gotta do better than that buddy.

Use'em all
Well.....my prediction for me is 3 bucks and 3 does. When I bought my license this year I got six new deer tags and I plan to use'em all! You know.....me and Live Bait was talking and this is the 5th year we have hunted with you. We can only recall you killing 1 deer on public land and we can never forget the one you "Gangreened"! So unless you've got in a club without telling us..........your in for a long year!
