Default Successful Axis Doe Hunt @ Broken Arrow Bow Hunting

Had a successful hunt this weekend at Broken Arrow Bow Hunting near Gonzales, TX. Curtis has a nice place set up perfectly for bowhunting, with no shortage of shot opportunities. Excellent lodging directly across Hwy 304, and a short drive from Houston made this a superb location.

I connected on this Axis doe less than 2 hours into my sit Friday evening. I bought my first compound bow (Obsession Phoenix) here off the TBH in August 2017, and since then have successfully taken 2 Whitetails and this Axis. I am using Blood Therapy OCD 125gr broadheads which I bought based on the excellent reviews I read online, and they have not disappointed.

X2?? Double arrow is the only place I've ever been I wouldn't go back too. Curtis was worthless as tits on a boar hog. Place looked worse than a frat house after a party. Feeders were empty and he had to track down the popups that blew off. Wouldn't **** in his mouth if his teeth were on fire!! Only hunt I've been embarrassed to bring people on. That said glad you had a good hunt wherever it was.

Ouch. Well I've known people to give DA and Curtis raving reviews. That said I've been to a place or two that were popular with folks on here and I was disappointed with my hunts so I guess it can happen anywhere.

Still wondering if the OP was talking about DA.

This was my 2nd trip to Curtis' place, with the first in 2014. I didn't see any pop-ups the first trip, although I know he has used them in the past based on his mention of them this past weekend. All blinds are now Maverick, with the exception of 2 sheet metal covered box blinds. We did not experience any issues with feeders not throwing, and the bunk house was super clean. Whatever was happening during your trip it looks like he may have addressed those issues since that time.
