5 minute bow hunt...

9 posts in this topic

I had the shortest deer hunt of my life today! I was settled into the tree at 11:31 am and was done hunting at 11:36 am. My dad arrowed a doe on Tuesday night so the pressure was on today. I got into his stand ( grin.gif ) which is on a hardwood ridge that runs south of our food plot west/east. There's some low areas and thick popple on each side of the ridge and the bedding area is to the east of the stand, behind me. I used my Primos can call a few times, followed by 5-6 excited buck grunts. I look to my right and here is a spike at 50 yds lip curling. He came in on a string at a fast walk. I drew, grunted, and he stopped. I double lunged him at 12 yds and he ran about 40yds before crashing. I've had a drought the last 2 years so I was pumped big time.

Congrats. To me, all deer with a bow are truely a trophy be it a buck or a doe. Not everyone has the skill and patience to harvest a deer with a stick and string.

I really enjoy seeing the pictures of all the deer that are harvested by the Fishing Minnesota members and everything you all contribute. Thats what makes this archery forum what it is.

That's exciting. Congratulations. I had a similar situation last year. I hadn't even had an arrow knocked yet and I had a fork coming down the trail. Thank goodness he milled around until I could get situated.
