Hey Boo!

Didn’t I see on a topic a couple of weeks ago where you had gotten some of the Easton Full Metal Jacket arrows? If so how’d they perform? I was thinking of getting some and would like to know your opinion of them.

Re: What a morning!

She was facing me coming up a little rise at about 20 yards. She started acting a little squirelly as if she was about to run so I put it on the upper part of the chest so it would angle down to the heart and lungs. It hit her in the lower part of the neck where it connected into the chest and burri...

What a morning!

Man, what a morning! Today is Georgia’s opening day of rifle season. Down here in the south, gun season is nothing more than a social gathering. Every one wants to go out and hunt but few have the patients to sit for any length of time in order to get one. So I figured I would work that to my advant...

Redemption for missing my buck/found my doe

Two days ago I got to thinking about the 6 point that I had missed (twice) and figured sooner or later he’d be back. So I went and moved my stand about 60 yards further up the trail so if he came back and got spooky because of my ignorance when I educated him that evening I would have the advantage ...

Re: Chair Blind

I tried one last year during turkey season and found that it didn't have enough room on the inside for crossbow use. Mine was the single chair version, a double chair may be more forgiving but I don't think it will. The problem is the room from front to back just isn't big enough for me. It may be f...

Brain damaged deer for brain damaged hunter

I had a burr under my saddle for the past several days due to making the bad shot on that doe last week and not finding her :oops: and decided that the only way to get over it was to get back in the woods and try again. :D I had also been thinking about moving my tree stand to the area I had shot th...

Re: Going to be a long night.

Well it’s a sad ending to this hunt. I went back at first light this morning in hopes of recovering the doe from last night. I ended up tracking on my hands and knees until lunch time with no results. I did manage to find where she had bedded down for a while though; bile and just a little blood wer...

Going to be a long night.

I got a chance to slip into the woods this afternoon about 5 o’clock to do a little hunting before dark. It has been raining here since late last night and the rain finally broke this evening. I figured the deer would be moving close to dark after raining all day. After getting to my area I set up a...

Re: Finally Connected

Great deer, congratulations on taking a buck that you have hunted in the past. It shows that good things do come to good people.
