Remember to Nock another Arrow

3 posts in this topic

I was on stand tonight. The deer came in. Being Friday evening, I figured it would be a great time to get a Doe. I get 3 under my stand at 20 yards. I take a shot, and I thought I hit. Turns out I missed.

Anyway, I thought to myself to nock another arrow. Since I heard the deer I shot fall down (so I thought), I decided not to. So, the rest of the deer begin walking toward my stand! Right underneath me, at about 8 yards, this monster Doe goes broadside and stops and looks into the woods under my stand for almost a minute. IF I WOULD HAVE LISTENED TO MY FIRST INSTINCT, I WOULD HAVE HER! She was one of the biggest does that I have seen.

So, lessen learned. Hopefully, since the deer eventually walked off in a huff without spoting me, I hope they will come back in a few days.

I agree totally!!! Opener I had a doe broadside at 35 yards...missed her clean....she ran about 150 yards to the other side of the field and came right back to me to check me out.....I sat there dumbfounded as she was standing 10 yards away looking at me and my arrows were still in the quiver......as soon as i reached for one she was gone.....I still laugh by butt off everytime I think about it.

      How's the snow on the lake?  Can you still get around on snowmobile or is the slush getting bad?  Thanks for any info.

      I don't have an axe to grind with The Landing (and I don't honk anyone on this forum does either)- I went there a few times last summer and the food was good, they had an ample beer selection, and the service was friendly- all of those things I'm willing to pay for.   We had another couple up staying the weekend at our cabin and brought them to The Landing and had a terrific time, looking forward to making it back there again!   And more importantly, can't wait for the ice to get off the lake!!
