Last days in the Archery Blind
« on: October 28, 2013, 09:19:03 AM »
Spent three days in the blind with the bow tucked in waiting for deer
Last chance for me as next set of days off are in rifle season.
Had a nice 3x4 whitetail hang up at 71 yards and turn and walk away, a big whitetail doe and her two yearlings as well as a nice little fork mule deer and his mother.
All of them never even came close to being able to feel the joy of one of my muzzy's

I kept bowhunting through the rifle season last year and ended up getting another doe near the end of the month.  My quest is for a 160 plus Whitetail buck with my bow so I figure I have to suffer through some cold sits to make that happen.  They just seem to show up once the rut starts.  If I was hunting untouched area then I could probably pattern a large buck during the early season but they seem to hide until the rut makes them get out of their comfort zone.

even tho there is not a lot of pressure on the deer during bow season, it turns into somewhat of a zoo around the area I hunt.
The biggies go back up deep into the coulies a couple miles off the road and are hard to get at with archery tackle.
That being said, not a lot of those lazy asses are willing to get out of the truck and walk up to find them.
