The 10 that walked by me as I was setting up just came back and I proceeded to send an arrow right over his shoulder blades. Happened quick and he was angling out into a cut corn field. Just misjudged it. I’m an idiot.

Saw 4 bucks this morning and double lunged this guy at 23 yards. He ran twenty yards then stumbled backwards and ended up only about 8 yards from the shot. He’s an 8 if you include the one inch kicker off his base. Great morning in the woods. Congrats to all those that connected today!

Your welcome !
Flight
I thought it might have been you, Thank You!

Had a hot doe come and spend the last hour of light around me, that young woman beating forky followed her in, and then mounted her at 20 yards. I have never witnessed that before, pretty cool.

She moved on as dark closed in, and he stood there like a statue afterwards for probably ten minutes. Think it was his first time lol.

See ya in the morning fellas.

Oh, almost forgot that I got a picture of him doing some chasing today while I ran back to the house mid-day.

Friday the13th strikes the Huron Natl Forest. Hung my Hawk on a swamp edge yesterday afternoon. At 930 a wide 8 came by at 50 yds. I grunted and he stopped turned and took a few steps toward me. Just then CVS buzzed to let me know my daughter's script is ready. He turned and walked away. He'll be there tomorrow.

I hadn't mentioned it because I was embarrassed, but after my morning sit today in which I got frustrated at sitting in the wrong stand and watching the chunky 8 from 125 yards away, I left the tree kind of early. Shortly after starting my hike out as stealthily as I could and being helped in that matter by the wet everything, I saw a decent 6 coming my way but with a hump, not really a hill, but a rise in the landscape blocking him from seeing me. At 35 I got him all aimed in and squeezed the trigger but the bow didn't fire. I STILL HAD THE SAFETY ON from when I climbed out of the stand. I frustradedly clicked the safety off and aimed again but the buck heard the click or saw the movement and so I rushed my shot and sailed it a couple of inches over him. It was after that (and not finding another expensive bolt) that I took out my fury on the goose. What a Friday the 13th!

Congrats to everybody that was more successful than me.
