Default NY Opener Buck Down

What a great cold morning it was.

28 degree's when I left the city this morning with heavy frost on the truck and the ground.

Got in the stand at 6:40 am and didn't have any action till around 8:30am. I heard a few grunts so I grunted back and had 6 deer heading my way. 2 big does, 2 fawns which one was a button buck and 2 bucks, a spike and what I thought was a 4 pointer.

The doe's headed into the swamp as the spike was bird dogging one of the fawns. He was chasing her every where she went but she wanted noting to do with him.

Both bucks hung around and fed for a few minutes. The spike started to leave and with the bigger buck behind him. I grunted softly and that was all he needed. He came my way looking and stopping to feed here and there.

He came into my shooting lane at 18 and a half yards and I sent an arrow his way. I saw my lighted nock disappear into him. He ran 45 yards and stopped looking back. He stood there for about 2-3 minutes then wobbled and fell over.

I was soo excited that I couldn't stop shaking. I went up to him and he was still alive but couldn't get up so I quickly finished him off. He turned out to be a basket rack 6 pointer.

My dad helped me hang this stand last week and my grandfather didn't think it would produce much especially with a bow. Glad I could prove him wrong.

While waiting for help with the ATV I saw another deer moving quickly toward my stand. Now I have to fill one of my doe tags since both bow/muzzle tags have been used.

Just checked my log and In saw this deer on Sept 19th while squirrel hunting with my fiance. He was with a doe and a fawn. Watched them feed and he rubbed some trees then locked horns with another buck. Leaves were still heavy and green so I never saw how big the other deer was but it made this 6 pointer turn tail and run.

Nov 15th maybe I'll find out.

I thought my hunting season was going bad with starting a new job on Monday. 2 deer down so its going great.

I wouldn't say they are holes. More like huge gashes. I have no plans on switching broadheads anytime soon.

Congrats on the early success. Did you get the full compliment of tags? If so, lots of season left.
