Default From One End to the Other: LIVE SEASON 2.0

The other thread got closed for some reason unknown to me but it's time to kick off the next one...

Heith, Gilbert, and Kade rolled up top yesterday and I'll let Heith share the pics of their last 18 hours or so... Clay is behind me hauling the base for one of the 2 stands that I'm bringing up and Tim is in route from Alaska. Some of y'all may remember when Tim made an invite to TBH to come bear hunting in Alaska in 2012 and I graciously accepted and had the experience of 10 lifetimes. Well it's only taken me 9 years to do it bit I'm trying to pay that back now. Tim is trying to arrow a P&Y buck and mine and Clay's goal is to break a doe's ribs with the ol recurve. Clay is a hell of a shot, I'm glad I have a lot of arrows and my compound for a back up. We're between Wichita Falls and Vernon with the hammer down. With any luck at all we'll be there in time to hunt this evening. Stay tuned and I'll update as I can.

Me and Clayboy are in. We sling a couple of arrows and I liked his spare long bow better than my recurve. The feeder is too far but it's directional so if she gets inside 20 she's in trouble... or not lol. I'm not a great trad shooter and this is my first run at it so basically anything with a pulse is fair game.

No blood on impact and penetration didn't look great but when I lost sight of her she was doing the gangster lean and I'm 90% sure I heard her crash!

Clayboy has a doe and pig in sight. If either get inside 30 they're in bad trouble. He can actually shoot his injun bow.

Man I do miss hunting my trees


We're all set. Clay and I spent the day topping feeders and putting up new stands. I'm in one now that's never been hunted. Busted 5 out on the way in but that's what it is. Tim got in, we met up, shot bows, shot the and hustled to the stands. Something will bleed tonight!

At lunch Clay and I came back to where I shot the doe last night and never found a single drop after last blood. We both feel like I got 1 lung and possibly bumped her on my way out. Where I thought I heard her crash was 180° from where she went. It sucks but that's bowhunting I guess...

Today was an anomaly... It's super rare to get zero'd here unless it snows. I busted 5 walking in but that doesn't count. Not a single deer on stand for me or Tim. Clay say 6 but they were all at a distance and nothing came to the feeder. That's all pretty strange stuff. We just grabbed a beer and a bite and about to hit the sack. Tim has been up for almost 48 hours so he's fading real fast. We'll get after it early and see how she goes.
