Archery permit is just for deer and hogs.

My understanding is that since this is a population control / reduction hunt, coyotes are considered beneficial to the goal.

I saw a doe with twins come by earlier. They hung around for probably 30-45 minutes. She looked young, but then again she may have been 2.5. Iíll take another look when I get home.

Nope, as long as you are 100 yards from the next fella you are good to go.

FYI.

For those that were bothered by the dove hunters on core property this morning, this was sent from the office to the small game hunters.

"Just a friendly reminder. Small game hunting is suspended and not allowed during the White-tailed deer archery only season from September 28th until November 1st.

Nothing. Heat and acorns starting to fall does not help. Hopefully with cooler temps next week, they will start coming back.

It will be a struggle. My yard feeder went from 12-15 deer in morning to 2 this morning. They are all under my oaks. Hope for a freeze and rain or something to spoil the acorns. Good news is my trees are not loaded this year

Most of the oaks I'm seeing are loaded and really started dropping significantly in the last week or so. Seems 1-2 weeks earlier than the past few years.

Most of the Oaks in my area are pretty light this year as well. Hoping this keeps them coming to corn and blocks. I'll be sitting both mornings this weekend, so here's to hoping they are still somewhat interested and stop on by

What do you guys think about this shot placement on that first doe? (see post #5588) It felt like a good shot but because I didn't recover her I'm second-guessing my placement. It was a full pass trough.

if anyone else has recovery issues, I have a blue tick hound and I live 10 minutes from the south side of the lake. If I'm not busy with work/kids would be happy to come help.

How far, and how high did you shoot? The deer may be lower and lean to right for a jump. The arrow may go low than you expected.

I re-watched your video, can hardly see the exact place where the arrow hit, but felt it was a little far back. Did you find any blood from that direction? Have you retrieve the arrow back? If so, what is on it, blood, fat, tissue?

Btw, it is a great video.

Very little blood, mostly fat. Hindsight being 20/20 I think it was more low than back. Considering I'm shooting from an elevated position I should have aimed about 3-4" higher. And to make sure I'll never forget the lesson this is the very next morning, same spot.

3-4 inches high? That is too much. I suggest not try to compensate it if your bow is powerful enough (65lb above) and you only shoot within 20 yards. Deer's reaction is vary, next time if deer does not lower and jump, you will hit too high. I have the same lesson in the past. When deer gets alert while you pulling the bow, most likely they will react dramatically. If it is still relax, the reaction usually is late, the arrow will hit where you aim. Now, I am aiming the heart, so a little higher or lower does not matter. It is still fatal. The disadvantage is that the arrow is easy to be broken if it hits the big bone and not goes through. I use one-piece fixed broadhead.
