Messed up!

Whats happening in your neck of the woods ?

Messed up!

Postby chadbragg » Tue Oct 02, 2018 7:22 pm

Yesterday evening after picking the kids up from school I got in the stand in the middle of town just before 4. At about 530 there were 3 does came out and of all things an ice-cream truck spooked them! Then at 655 3 bucks cams down the shooting lane. Light was fading but the lead buck was a nice full velvet 8pt. I took the 20yd shot and apparently hit a limb or something. Bolt was completely green, found 0 blood only green gut material. Let him lay almost 2hrs, then me and Jlawson80 took my lab to look for it.

We trailed the gut material 70yds or so from the shot, but lost all sign. I went back today 2x looking for sign or buzzards with no luck. Will walk through again tomorrow. This is the absolute worst shot I've ever made with bow/xbow. I've been sick all night and day. ImageImage

Then to add insult to injury this morning I get this picture of the big 9pt I was hunting in Kentucky! Image

Photos, show broken, on my end. I think everyone, is trying to rush the season. To dang hot and to early. I feel November, would be soon enough to open the season. If weather permitted.

There's a beaver pond 50yds behind my stand. It's the only water close. I walked the whole thing yesterday 2x. That was my thoughts as well.

That deer is either dead or soon to be dead. 2 hours isn't nearly enough time to wait on a paunch shot deer to die. 6-8 hours is the norm when dealing with them. It sucks you lost him but it happens.
I still hate Commies, even after they changed their name to Liberals.

I actually made another loop through the property and around the beaver pond yesterday. Haven't found any sign of him.
