Makes Me Smile!

A few years ago a friend had taken up bowfishing and wanted to bow hunt also. She is a gorgeous little indian gal 20ish years old named Mary and sweet as can be. I agreed to put her on a bow stand and she showed up with a youth bow and full length arrows with mix and match brodheads. We were headed to one of my best stands when I got a call from a friend that had stuck a buck and wanted help tracking. I got her set up at 3pm and went to help him.

At 4pm, I got a call and couldn't understand the caller. They were making noise like someone in serious distress and then the call dropped. I looked at the number and it was MARY! Scared the crap out of me so I called her back quickly and asked if she was ok. She answered and it went something like this..... I-I-I SH-SH-SH-OT A-A D-D-D-Deer! me.,"Did you hit it?" I-I-I Think s-s-o. What kind of deer was it? A Bi-BI-BIg doe. Well did you see where the arrow hit? N-N-N-O. Did you hear it hit? N-N-NO What did the deer do? It-IT-IT J-J-Just fell over I-I-IM dizzy! Are you sitting down? N-N-No. Well SIT DOWN! Im ten minutes away.

When I walked in, I met her coming up the tail literally leaping for joy! I went out there and sure enough, she had drilled a tender nubbin buck. Its one of my all time favorite hunting adventures. She was shaking from head to toe. That's what bowhunting is all about.

I actually think her fellow is a TBHer.

This is my favorite yet! All of those big deer, but this is what's it's all about. First deer stories are always the best.

How do you do this without the hogs finding it? Once the hogs find the corn the deer are pretty much gone where I hunt here in ETX.

I work on the hogs hard in off season but I do occationally have problems with spots that are corned long term. In most cases though, im corning a spot just a few days right where the deer is traveling. Hogs cost me several arrows last year.

Yes I understand about the arrow cost with hogs lol. I just get frustrated with our hog problem cause it just seems that hand corn isn't a option for me

Prize Winner

On morning, my BIL and I were hunting together and he killed a big 11pt. He had entered a local big buck contest so we took the deer in. While we were there, I went ahead and paid my entry fee too. We left the store and I decided we would go check out a spot in the very back of my cousins place which was ten minutes from the store. We were driving down an old farm lane with thickly grown brush on each side. It was about 1230 on a crystal clear day when a huge buck jumped up right in the middle of the lane!

I slammed on my brakes and the deer broke out across a wide pen pasture. Sam Jumped out and started shooting. My rifle was in the back seat and it took me a few seconds to grab it and stuff a shell in the barrel. By now Sam had shot at him three times and he was about 250yds out and as stretched as a deer can get. I got hooked up and shot. It was almost delayed reaction but the deer went head over heals. I got him! Sam said he got him. I didn't know Sam shot but he had four hulls. We fired at exactly the same time and neither knew the other shot. He was shooting factory loads and I was shooting hand loads with SP/BT bullets. The bullet had lodged under the skin and made a noticeable lump. I slit the skin and popped it out. It was a SP/BT.

He was a heavy typical 12 with 2 kickers. We loaded him up and headed back to the contest. I told the store owner I had the winner. He came out and took one look and accused me of having the deer killed before I entered the contest since it had been less than an hour since I entered! I showed him that the deer was still plenty warm and had Sam as a witness. At the end of season...I won it again

I bet the store owner wasn't to happy about that one! Almost too good to be true.

Garguy, in your experience, do you find that the bigger bucks move between 11-2 in the middle of the day?

This thread is about hunting pressured deer and I didn't finish the last story. Apparently he was using the overgrown lane as a sanctuary since he could cross and watch two big fields totally concealed from there. Sometimes they will hide in plain sight!

Steve, the stories are amazing!! My first real nice buck came off the Lazy K ranch out of Kennard... and I have always considered that one one of my best hunts ever... Dec. 30, '67... next to last day of season back then... He was only an 8, but what a hunt. My dad and uncle had the spot set up for me. I sure miss gettin' to hunt those big woods. Thanks for taking all us along on some epic hunts!

11am seems to be a secondary magic time in the sanctuaries but right after day break is great. They just got home and like to grab a snack before bed. I do see a lot of mature bucks mid afternoon though.

These stories remind me of a few my uncle used to tell before he passed a few years ago. He was a dirt poor farmer that used to hunt around kennard and groveton when I was growing up. Every year he would bring home a giant east Texas buck from the dcnf and I was amazed at how such big deer would come out/around the national forest. He had been killing these big bucks every winter since the late 70's. Keep the stories up garguy I enjoy them!

I haven't participate in any since I went archery only. We always waited until the end of season when the deer had been pressured hard and then surrounded the thickets they holed up in.

GarGuy,
I'm sorry, I did not mean to hint that I didn't believe your stories of past hunts. That is definitely not the case. They certainly have had me on the edge of my seat and I've enjoyed learning from them. I think plenty of folks, myself included, learned several lessons on going after pressured bucks. Didn't mean to step on any toes with the last post- I really enjoy all your threads

I have enjoyed every story. Trying to use your experiences to try and finally get a shot at a split brow 12 point that I have on camera for the past 3 seasons. Night time pictures only in a small oak flat in the middle of pine plantation.

These stories have been equally entertaining and informative. I'm hunting the thick stuff this year because of what I learned in this thread. Thanks for posting.
