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.

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
