Man.. I love bowhunting smile.gif

Last year I shot a P&Y 144 10-pointer, and I followed that up with this with this guy. Not quite as big, but I'm still pretty stoked about how it went down. First the story, then the pics..

I had just gotten up in the stand. It was about 1:30 in the afternoon. I pulled up my bow, put my release on. No hat, gloves, etc.

I was scanning the swamp with my binocs when I heard crashing coming in fast from behind me. I didn't have time to grab my bow off the hook, or put my binocs away - he came right over to my scent wick and started looking around for the doe that left the scent.

He looked at me a few times then turned away. I quick grabbed the bow, and when he started walking away I drew. I grunted at him to make him stop and then released the arrow (from a sitting position, with my binocs still on my lap, no less).

Arrow passed through, he went about 30 yards and piled up... was hit in both lungs and went very quickly.

Total time from when I heard him until when he crashed was ~ 45 seconds. Didn't see any other deer all weekend smile.gif

Nice Buck, Great mass, Good story. Thats the reason we hunt. It would have been easier to stay at home after not seeing deer all week, but then again, you won't shoot a buck sitting at home. Congrats again.

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
