I feel pretty confident I'll find this one. I probably rushed the recovery a little but wanted to find her and get out of there without boogering up the spot at prime time... Anyways I bumped her about 75yds from the shot. Looks like 1 lung and paunch. Headed to town to grab a burger and will be back after dark for the recovery.

It's almost light enough to get serious about it. 10min ago I had a buck almost directly under me. Way too dark to tell what he was but definitely a bigger deer. Wind is shifty and the woods are waking up.

Since the last post I had a coyote roll through, too dark to shoot. Just had a small buck dogging a doe out front. This morning is starting out pretty dang good! I don't like this swirling wind though!

The sun started peaking over the tree tops and I don't know what numerical digit on a thermometer represents dam cold but that's what it is right now! I'm about 4 layers short! Squirrels are cutting acorns, crows hollerin' and a lazy river bend full of wood ducks out front. Where else could you possibly want to be!

These guys just set up shop and there's probably 30 more behind them. I'm about to slip out, go have a biscuit, and do some scouting.

Hit me up next time you are down around Angelina county and we will drop my boat in Rayburn and you can show me how to catch these green fish.

Great thread so far Steve!! Yes, one of the things I love about the Injun bow stuff is there's always something to shoot at... I always keep at least one arra, most times 2 for opportunity targets like dillers, coons, possums and stuff... Heck a practice shot walkin at an old rotten stump at unknown range is good...
Gon' be some good eatin' with that first kill! Congratulations!

I'm settled in for the evening. I'm on the side of a series of ridges and the corner of a field. South of me is some property Insure wish I had access to. It's where my 3 target bucks live. I have a spot I'd much rather hunt but there just isn't a good tree for a climber. I'll make the call tonight if it needs a lock on or not. It's the kind of warm that feels like it'll get cold when the sun goes down and there's the perfect amount of wind in the right direction for me. It does swirl in here a little because of all the ridges but we'll just have to run it.

Pretty slow start this evening... I'm totally ok with only seeing 1 deer as long as it's one of my shooters! Beautiful evening even if they are over sleeping a little.
