Here is my season so far.
I have been out for 3 weekend hunts. My spot is just over 2 hours away so I am limited to weekend hunts.
I hunted from sunrise to sunset on Sat. Saw 14 deer, 8 bucks, 2 seperate heavy chase scenarios, but off at a distance, they were 200-300 plus yds away.
Every doe had a buck on their trail.
The forcast for Sat. afternoon and Sun. was wind warnings...great.
I hunted in the wind Sun morning, deer activity was not nearly a heavy as to the prior day. I was planning on sticking the first fat doe.
At 9:30 a solo doe walks by on the 23 yd trail. She stopped right at 23 yds and looked back behind her. There is a time and place when you should stick a doe, and this was not the time.
She continued on, about 30 seconds later I could see horns comming thru the thicket right on her trail. To me its a bow shooter.
He came right on the 23 yd trail walking slowly with his nose on the ground. I draw my Mathews and I could not get him to stop. I let a rage fly.
I hit it high and spined it, he dropped in his tracks. I'm not sure why I was high but I had loins. I still have 1 more buck tag, and that is reserved for shotgun season.
17" wide grosses 121 1/8 162 lbs

Great Buck Bob! Things are looking good. I killed a doe this morning passed through her shoulder and the heart and she went 45 yards and folded. I also had to pass a nice 7 pointer at 12 yards (prob 115) because I don't have a 2nd doe down yet and here in MD you need to kill 2 does before your second buck can be taken. Also saw another small 5 point and had him at 15 yards. Keep at it guys we have a good shot at it.

Nice deer Bob.

I let the air out of a buck on Sunday too. A 9 point, 17" wide. Had a little ground shrinkage when I got to him, but I will take him. I will try to get the score & pics posted shortly.
