Perfect shot. I think mine hit a little too high. Next time in the elbow or neck.

He went 30 yards and dropped... perfect right in the lung. That's why I can't understand why I missed the doe earlier that morning.

Nice hogs!

Those deer are wound up tighter than a coil spring and can start to react to the sound of that arrow releasing before it even leaves that bow/crossbow.
Doesn't matter how fast they make a bow or crossbow, those deer react to the sound, which in a deer's ears travels faster than an arrow from any bow made.
Those hogs do not, but that's only if you can get them to stand still long enough.

I cannot believe the reported lack of activity last weekend. The bucks were chasing does hard all weekend just across the fence line.

Should be good after the front passes....Mondays weather will be ideal.
I miss the old days when you could hunt all week except Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and most areas would be open.

The rules this year require that a doe be taken before you can take a buck.
I could have taken a really nice buck the second time I sat this season, but had to just watch since I haven't taken a doe.
Although I haven't hunted much this season as of yet, the does aren't cooperating, and coming to the feeder.
It should get better, but also the training schedule hasn't worked in the favor of the hunters as well.

Just saw an update from Bullis website. Mentioned that TA 7 was closed Sunday because of fires on Saturday.
On the training schedule Saturday would have been closed......Wonder if training caused the fires?
Hope nobody lost their gear in that area, but doesn't sound good.

I complain all season about not seeing anything so I didn't hunt Saturday... Here's the cam footage. First seeing these all year... Looks like they are looking for some ladies during early morning.
