Pig kill

I tried to use an lumenock because Iíve lost a few arrows at night. My serving is too small for it and the arrow kept falling off the string when Iíd begin to draw. I finally jerked it out of the arrow and replaced it with a regular nock.

So help me understand what you were doing. Were you basically walking around with a tripod that has a camera and red flashlight on it? Those hogs sure didn't seem bothered by you moving around with the light...

Nice shot BTW!

Yup. You need a pretty strong wind and some moisture doesnít hurt either.

Just watched a couple of your videos, PigOps. I enjoyed 'em. Really good audio and video. Nice solo job manning the bow and camera.

Recap:

I found this spot (post oak flat next to thicket and old pine plantation) Sunday evening and found a tree to climb, Monday evening rolls around and I slip out and get setup around 5:30. Around 6 I had a small buck come in and eat for a while and the bottom fell out. I knew the spot may be productive as there were a few scrapes being worked and seeing a deer the first sit was promising.

Yesterday evening I was able to slip out really late even though it was raining.I got in the stand at 5:40, and by 5:43 a doe eating behind me at 60yd.. 20 min late another came out at the same place.

Just before dark I caught a shandow through the brush coming down the road, it made its way into the woods and walked directly under me.. a doe which I debated on shooting but held off due to the rain and it getting dark. It made its way to my shooting lanes on the road and a few min later I heard a load grunt, followed by his silhouette coming down the road. Walked straight to where the doe was standing at 14yards.. grunted at him to stop and sent an arrow his way. I watched the feathers disappear and knew it was a solid hit. He took off through the brush and came out 60 yards away on the road and rounded the corner. I gave it 5 min and wanted to check for blood before the rain washed it away. Got down and blood was everywhere, but no arrow. I walked up to the house and got a bigger flashlight and headed back.. about 30 min later. I elected to go to where I last saw him and as I rounded the corner my light flashed over a white belly not 40 yards away. He isnít the biggest buck in the woods but for my first year hunting with a trad bow I wasnít going to discriminate. Thinking Iíll sell my compound now!


And of course Iím having trouble uploading the picture.. so if anyone one wants to help me out Iíd greatly appreciate it.

There you go Eastxbowman. Nice buck.

Thanks for the compliments on the blind y'all. I built it a couple of years ago and it has been an excellent investment. I left the back door open when I got out, otherwise that Windows a lot harder to see into.

Always wanted a drop tine buck!! Lol
He came in this morn to a grunt call, broadside at 14 steps, double lung pass thru. He went just over 20 yrds and crashed in sight. Bob lee exotic recurve, GT shaft, 150gr stinger was the recipe. Congrats to all, God bless, and good luck this season.

I figure he's a 2 or 3 year old, no injury I could see to cause his right side to grow that way. He's no 5 year old monster but he's got some beautiful tenderloins and that's what I was after this morn!!

I was just curious because he looks 3-4 to me and was wondering if he might have an injury or something. Very cool buck and not a chance I'd pass one like it.
