Default Live from Carta Valley -Monster Axis Quest!

Dad and I drove up today to find out no water and busted lines everywhere in and under house. Thankfully can be fixed just been chasing down parts! We always drain it and I fixed it all last time and installed a valve. Owner checked it all out and said was good. Least have water outside and will fix tomorrow!

Anyway. If you saw my other post last few weeks following 2-3 stud axis deer Iím finally here to hunt them. New bow and ready to get one. I could have shot these couple times now with 6.5 but I have 3 monsters on wall so itís bow or bust

Dad shot axis doe tonight - still trying to thin some out. Iíll be in cedar bush early morning and ready to go!

Big group of axis came and were in brush within 15 yards of me. Antlers and does everywhere. See spots everywhere through bushes right here on top of me. Hadnít moved a muscle and suddenly they spooked and took off. Donít know if caught wind or something else. Wind died down then started again. Iím not giving up yet. They didnít go far They came from side they never come from of course. Normally come straight across the opening.

The main buck I could fully see wasnít one of the 3 main ones that stick together. He was shooter w bow but would pass gun. His 2nd points were not that strong. The 3 monsters been together and no does. So I really think this was different group. Iím not in GB just cedar. This pic is from behind. Iím well concealed in front but not back. Iím in bush on right and the axis group was right beside this cedar on left. Wind is swirling little now and gust off and on. 3 big dudes almost always do same thing and come across open field. This slipped in beside me Oh well. Waiting while longer unless wind just gets wrong. Going to add fresh cedar to front side before leaving but going to keep hunting a while. Not looking forward to crawling under house
