2008 bow season

2008 bow season

Postby brewer03 » Mon Oct 27, 2008 9:28 am

10/25/2008 Hinds County. Got to a stand on edge of a pipeline and an oak flat at 6 am... A cool 42 degrees and a slight breeze out of the northwest.. Jumped a couple out of the oak flat when getting to the stand.

6;45 am 5 does enter into the pipeline on the opposite side and mill their way toward the oak flat... as they do they keep looking down the pipeline to the south and acting skiddish... They turned and walked north on the pipeline and I thought they would enter the oak flat to the north of me as I got ready to shoot. Then a couple of snorts came and they returned to the middle of the pipeline giving me a broadside 30 yard shot at a big 125 pound doe...

Shot was made at 7:15 which passed through both lungs which resulted in a 40 yard run and recovery...

125 pounds and dry
pse 3 d dominator bow set at 65 pounds
epic hunter arrows
nap spitfire 125 gr broadheads




no hunt sat afternoon due to go kart racing with nephews

10/26/08 Copiah Copiah Hunted a creek bottom with acorns and bean trees.

48 degrees and variable breeze. saw several turkeys however no deer this am. Acorns still falling...


Afternoon hunt.... Copiah County

Decided to hunt a food plot on the edge of a 2 year old cutover one one side and a large tract of white oaks on the other...

Got to the stand a little late 4;30 pm
68 degress and a steady breeze out of the northe east(less than 5mph)

Arriving to the stand a doe was already in the plot so I waited for the doe to ease on off to the white oaks before going on to my stand

finally in the tree and settled approx 5 pm(forgot cell which I use as a clock) beautiful afternoon to be in the stand... Around 6 pm two small (appr 60 pound yearling) does stepped into the plot at about 60 yards from my perch... They fed to within 7 yards of my tree and all the way around the plot untill it was too dark to see them any more. nothing else entered but it was entertaining watching these to young does feed and fight the skeeters

10/29/08 evening hunt Hind County

got to the stand by 5;15 pm 60 degrees with a light variabl wind out of the west southwest...

hunting a pipeline stand on a large pine thicket with a couple of old oaks in a small swag. Acorns seem to be gone from these trees but the deer seem to be going for the honeysuckle that is all around this stand...

5;45 a doe and a fawn come within 20 yards of the stand eating on the honeysuckle and searching the ground for acorns.... At 6:10 pm they bolt sudeenly from this small area to across the pipeline and out of sight... The about 6:20 a nice 16 inch 8 point appears about 60 yards down the pipeline from me and enters into the pine thicket where the doe and fawn entered about 55 yards from the stand... rest of the hunt was uneventful except for the crows gathering for the roost...

11/1/08 Copiah County

AM hunt 45 degrees very light breeze out of NW

Hunted a finger ridge loaded with acorns, got settled in the stand at 6:15 am... Plenty of squirrels and turkeys to keep things interesting until about 8:15... At 8:30 am had a small 2.5 yr old 7 point come along eating acorns like a hoover vacuum cleaner... He was about 30 yards and didnt meet club requirements of beam length nor spread.. He fed up to the base of my tree and was feeding away from me and decided he would make a scrape. With his scrape made he started meandering off and left of another type of deposit... With more room he went back to gathering acorns... Finally couldnt see him any more around 9:15... Then at 9;35 I heard something walkin around behind behind the stand and down wind. It continued walkind up the finger ridge and I thought I was pulling the string back on a doe then I saw the six inch spike on it. I eased the string back down and enjoywed the show for the next 45 minutes as the spike worked the scrape and rubbed a few trees. Then I heard something else behind the tree and it was a 3 point come out.. the spike and 3 point then sparred a little and ate their way out of sight... I stayed on the stand until just a little after 11 and eased out.....


Copiah County
afternoon hunt..

65 degrees when I got to the stand with a slight breeze directly out of the east

Hunting a food plot sthat has cutover on 3 sides and large tract of oaks on the other... from 3 pm until 7 pm I had deer in the plot all afternoon though none posed for a shot. I did have 2 yearling get within bow range out of 13 deer that made trips into the plot during the afternoon...

11/8/08 am hunt

brisk 44 degrees a swirling breeze that gradually got worse

Hunted a white oak ridge between a cutover and a food plot. Sat in the tree until 10 am with nothing but squirrels running every where



11/08/08 pm hunt

breezey steadily changing directions 60 degrees

Hunted a food plot in a pine thicket next to a 5 yr old cutover.. When I arrived at the plot folks were scouting the area which deflated my hopes but I decided to hunt anyways... I had gotten there a little late in hopes the breeze would die down some... I climbed my tree and got everything set. I was pulling my bow up when my bow sling let go of my bow about 15 feet up... I climbed down got the bow reclimbed the tree and got set... Disappointed I figured would be a wasted hunt so I got my book out and began reading not really into the hunt... This was about 4;15 by now.. At 4:36 pm I heard something coming down the road that enters this plot(where the 4 wheelers were parked an hour earlier).. I put my book away grabbed my bow and stood up.... I drew as teh deer entered the plot at 15 yards.. Then the deer moved its ear and I saw the dreaded spikes... Eased teh bow down and returned it to the hanger ande watched this lil fella get his fill of wheats and oats.. He left t eh plot rite at 7 pm which I could still see by the light of the moon...

40 degrees slight breez out of the east northeast

Went into an oak covered ridge blind and found a tree to climb.. I had never hunted this area before but had scouted some during late summer.. I liked the set up and will return during gun season.. Stayed in the tree until 11 am, didnt see anything


11/09/08 pm hunt

10 mph breeze out of the east 55 degrees

hunted a plot in the middle of 10 y/o pines from 2:454 pm until 6 pm didnt see a thing but seeing how the moon is going full really not too worried.. enjoyed the weekends hunts and being the first time to sit a couple of stands and not see something has not been discouraging because there is supposed to be days like that....

11/16/08 am hunt Hinds County

31 degrees with a slight breeze out of the west

Hunted a climber on a small food plot in between two fields of planted 8 y/o pines... I got settled into the stand at 5:35 am and it was down rite cold...enjoyed the actions of a wood pecker above me rite after sunrise.. seeing nothing else until exactly 8 am.. 2 does come into the far end of the plot and walk directly across into0 the thicket. I get stood up hoping they will cicle behaind the tree I am in. I see the first one that enter the thicket turn around and head back to the plot. I get set and ready to draw as they both reenter the plot. The end of this plot is 42 yards from my tree and I wont shoot anything at over 35 yards(used to be 30). The lead doe stays along the far edge of the plot however the second doe angles closer as she feeds across. she just about reaches my 35 yard marker and starts quartering away... I figure if I am going to get a shot I got to take it now. I let it rip and was not happy with the shot as it was a little far back...but it sure sounded solid... I give thanks and sit to settle down and give it some time.. At 9:15 I climb down and go to search for my arrow... To no avail, and no blood... but I did find hair and the spot the deer was standing was 38 yards from my tree... I proceed to the spot where I saw the deer enter the thicket still no bloodso I begin to make small circles and then larger arcs... The good Lord answered my prayers as I found a large amount of blood... I trailed the blood through some of the thickest hedge and briars for the next 150 yards... I just totally lost the blood... I then marked the spot on my gps and back out.. I went to the house and got my dog and returned to the plot... She picked up the trail immediately before I had a chance to put her collar and bell on... as we enter the thicket she was dead on the money sa I caught up to her and got her bell on her she went rite back to it.. We got to the spot where I had last found blood and turned sharply to the left .. After about 20 yards I heard the tell-tell sound of her bell... I was only ten yards from her but could barely see her it was so thick... She had her 63rd find under her collar... I then proceeded to drag the 125 pound doe out to a spot I could get my 4 wheeler to about 100 yard of tough draggin....
