Everything I am reading on TPWD says that doe are allowed in Bosque county, and according to COE website, it doesn't say anything about buck only. When I called the COE office, they said they go by state rules. So, I see no reason why you can't shoot a doe. But I stand to be corrected if someone knows different. I filled another tag this weekend actually. Saw a small buck yesterday. Sniffing some scrapes that were made by a bigger buck. Bucks seem to be cruising.

Stuck a doe Saturday at the house. It didn't look like I got a ton of penetration. I am shooting 125grain Muzzy Phantom SC 4 blade. The bow I am shooting is a 45# @ 28" Kodiak Magnum. There was a ton of blood but could not find her. I am not confident that that is enough weight to take a deer with that set up. I will hunt the rest of the season with my compound. I need to test it out on some pigs and maybe try some different heads and arrow combinations.

I could see it getting one lung or lodging in the backbone. But I would think the arrow would break off at some point.

Did the same thing several years ago trying to get into a tree where some one stole my bottom climbing stick I put up the night before. I was hard headed and determined to get in my tree that morning. Landed right on my bow, snapped half my gold tips in my quiver and broke my rest of. The bow was pushed into the ground. Those old Hoyt Tec riser must have been made good. I know the guy whoís still shooting that bow.

As long as I'm the hunter that is most up wind, closest to the deer that is further upwind, and will have a clear shot before the others, I'm OK with this.

The deer win again. Had one fork horn buck at 24 yards for 15 minutes. Bet he is glad he was only 10 or so inches wide. Maybe next time.

Well, my season may be over. I'm settling in the ER with a bad knee. Stepped down when getting out of my stand yesterday and felt the dreaded pop. It's been bothering me for a couple weeks and I guess I just pushed too far.

Hope it's not your quad jnd. Keep us informed of how your doing. My Dad had his tear loose several years ago. And they had to go in and clamp it down cause it tore completely loose. That was a long recovery for him. He was on the golf course playing with my brother on the back side of one of the holes he overshot. He was on the back edge of the green standing there looking down in the bottom where his ball was 30 foot down a slope when his quad tore loose. He ended up beside his ball. The paramedics had a really hard time getting back up the slope without him because of the steep wet slope. Much-less pulling him back up in a basket. The ambulance could only park 80 yards close because the ground was wet. Thank goodness my brother was there to make the call.

Thanks. I don't think it's too bad. I'm setting here figuring out how to get in my kayak to duck Hunt Kansas in two weeks.
My two youngest were with me. First thing my daughter said was she thought we should amputate and picked up a tree saw.

Stay at it. Hunting is a learning experience.

The fish are biting, and there's hogs to be kilt. Gotta go!

I missed a shooter... but dumb mistake on my part. It was following, and didn't come into the clearing I had, so I tried to shoot through some brush, and arrow went right underneath it. If that limb wouldn't have been in the way, would be a dead deer... Live and learn though. Ill be back at it this weekend. Luckily I have some meat in the freezer already, so that monkey is off my back.

Lost my lease this year and have been working like a dog, anyhow I got my permit albeit late and am going to try my luck at Aquilla. Anyhow I have not hunted public land much and don't want to be "that guy" the one who walks up on other hunters who are established in an area and screw up their hunt because I am well aware of the work that goes into successful hunting, so any suggestions are appreciated, I know there are lots of places to hunt out there.

Best time to scout mid season is 1100-1400 hours to least likely disturb anyone. Lots of folk leave the woods for lunch between 0900-1000. I've had folks push deer right to me when they leave. So I sometimes take a little later lunch . Look for human sign; ie climbing marks on trees, corn, brush groundblinds, ect while taking notes on game sign. Sometimes the least likely thought of place is where you'll find game too.

And,, take some snacks/ lunch with you.

This time of year, you never know when they might show up.

Be there when the amateurs go back to their truck for lunch.
