That is a toad Brent!Now go get him. Well guys, I came close tonight, he was only a small 6 point, but after going a year without meat in the freezer, and with the season in the second half, I figured he would do. He came thru right before dark, hot on the tail of a doe. I turned the can over 2 times, and he stopped in his tracks, and looked back in the direction that it came from. I grunted at him twice, and he still wouldnt budge. So I snort wheezed at him, and boy he didnt like that. He came right in, ears laid back, and stiff legged. Well, I took a shot at about 25 yards, and he ran off about 10 yards. I watched him for about 5 minnutes, until he just walked off. When I got down, I found my arrow, clean miss! [:@]I think I might have hit my bow arm with the string. I am really starting to get frustrated. I never mentioned it on here, (I know how hard these guys can be on you on this forum) but last year I hit a doe in the early season, and never found her. I think I hit her in the ham, or the leg, because I had really good bright red blood for about 200 yards, and then it just stopped. Then in the late season last year, I hit a buck, that I never found, (actually I think he lived to see another day). And now this clean miss. I am starting to think I should go back to gun hunting, I never lost a deer when I only gun hunted.

I hear ya Darren, I have more then a couple wounded deer in my bowhunting career...mostly due to shot selection in my earlier years...and shot placement more recently.

One thing I found is that I have to keep practicing religiously...I had been shooting lights out for the last month, and just today I shot a few rounds after hunting...I was high and left at all yardages...something moved!?

I think most of my problem is that I cant get over the buck fever thing. It seem like when I shoot at a deer, I for the loss of a better prase, black out. Not really, but its like I cant remember anything about the shot. Like tonight, when I drew my bow, its like nothing felt right, and then when I did get him in my sights, and squeezed the trigger, I didnt even see the arrow leave the bow, or where it hit. Its just frustrating after bow hunting for 10 or so years, you would think that I would be over that. Oh well, better go practice some.

Darren, sounds like you have a problem my buddy has a real bad case of....buck fever the first day of archery this year he missed a doe twice at under 20 yards, problem was he was so worked up becuase of buck fever he would punch the trigger and would shoot over the deer. Week after i sat in the stand with him and when a doe came through i just told him to take his time and that the deer aint going anywhere. Bottom line, he made a perfect shot at 17 yards. But on to the buck i set him up on, he completely forgot about taking his time to "control" his buck fever and ended up making a poor shot that he could have swore was perfect but his mind was so fogged up from buck fever. I told him that we would back out and come back the next day, found his buck 150 yards away with a shot square in the hind quarter. He was using a rage bh that just barely caught the femoral artery running down through the leg. Best advice i can give you is to just try to slow yourself down and take your time and pick exactly where you want to hit the deer, and yes i was in your same shoes the first couple years of bowhunting until i started to take my time and concentrate on where i want the arrow to go. Hope this helps you bud.

P.S.- Nice buck Brent, now go put your tag on him

Hey boys, sure has been slow in here lately. Not much going on here. Did get to see the big 8 Sunday night right at dark, that my wife wants me to get. We have a few different traili cam pics of him, and she want him on hte wall.[8D]I couldnt get him to stop, and I didnt want to take a shot on him while he was walking, so he lived to see another day.
So, what are your personal chances at scoring on a buck yet this year? I have to say, that my chances are not all that great. I could probably tag a smaller buck,(I have been seeiing a ton of different small ones) if I wanted, but I keep seeing that big 8 in my mind, and I just cant do it yet. I have 2 more full weekends to bow hunt,(I can actually bow hunt until the first of the year) and if I have not filled my archery tag by then, I am bringing my ML out the weekend after Thanksgiving. This will be my first year hunting with a ML, and I am really looking forward to it. The problem is, that in my area iin Minnesota, we can only tag one deer period. Our ML season runs from November 29th - December 14th I think it is. So, if I still have not filled my tag by then, the bow will come back out for the last 2 weekends. So, what are your true chances of taging out on a buck this year? Good Luck to you all the rest of your seasons.

[8D]Ya Patrick, I would say your chances are about 100%.
