Well I got my required Doe at the Park so I am now
BUCK HUNTING BABY
I got some great video footage from my treestand opening day.. I had a shooter 12 point buck come into 9 yards from my treestand and just hung there in his staging area for roughly 20 minutes... he was then joined by a 8 point buck... they put on a real show for my video camera
To bad he didnt come in till
after I had gotten my required Doe
Checkout the entrance hole the Grim Reaper 2 inch cut Broadhead did on this Doe

I made it out opening morning but didn't see a deer. Was out last night and had 11 does come in just out of bow range. Knowing where the does are will be huge in the next few weeks. Just have to be patient now.

Yesterday morning I headed to the park on the herd reduction Bowhunt ...I took the climber and climbed one of my favorite trees... its a great spot I have proabably killed 10 deer out of it over the last few years
First I see a yote come trotting through after it had ran by Christine at 15 yards ( she was just a few hundred yards away in another tree and they dont allow us to kill yotes in the park ) and then not any thing else for about an hour except a lone doe out of range... then in the thicket I see movement, first thing I thought was , DAMIT here comes a pack of yotes, but it wasnt yotes it was 2 does with their young ones. Once they cleared the thicket I saw I had a nice hole to shoot through on the trail they were traveling on. The first doe entered the hole and I bleated to stop her and settled the 20 yard pin on her and let it rip.... shot looked perfect... grabed another arrow nocked it and the 2nd deer entered the hole and I mouth bleated to stop it and settled the pin again and let it rip... shot looked like a good double lung... grabbed another arrow and nocked it and the 3rd doe entered the hole and I rembered I only had one tag left and I needed to save it for a buck.. so the 3rd Doe got a free pass
Well the 1st Doe was a perfect heart shot and went about 40 yards and dropped dead... the 2nd deer was her button and it was a double lung that cut half of a rib on the entrance and completely broke in half the exit rib and it dropped not 6 feet from its mother.
Now I prefer not to shoot button bucks but unfortunatly I didnt see its buttons
Here are few pics.

Thanks
I took my older video camera and hocked it up to my tV and then took photos with my camera of the video footage of the 12 pointer I videoed the other day from my treestand.
Its not the best quality but you can see the buck.
