Another decent buck!

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.

      When I left for work yesterday the lake had white caps on it. When I got back 10hrs later it was locked up. An hour after that the first idiot was broke through the landing. If we get the snow they are predicting for Saturday my guess is there will be sleds in the water this weekend. They do it every year.    Patients people.

      Minnetonka there is a guy named John he just picked up 4 2017 wheel houses to add to his rentals I think he has 7 total now. He knows the lake darn well this is probably you best bet for the limited area you are willing to travel. I will pm you his info

      I have never fished it in the winter. Do not know of anyone that has either. Should be good though! Cliff
