Default Halloween hunting

I CAN'T WAIT until tomorrow. I killed my first two archery bucks on Halloween, 2000 and 2001. I missed the very first doethat I ever shot at on Halloween. Last year on HalloweenI saw the biggest buck of my life [up to that point] froma tree stand only a few hundred yards from house on a new farm. I think I'mgoing to goto a special tree I've been saving in a major travel corridor where I see so many nice bucks every year. I cleared a jungle of thorn bushes and vines from the only climbable treeand it's in a perfect spot. I've neverfeltthis positive about a particular stand before. I was going to save it foranother week or so but I just have to get in it tomorrow and the wind is going perfect. I know a lot of you guys also like this day and so, good luck to all. Ken

I took a buck on Halloween morning as well back in the late 90's. He came in with another buck and when I first saw them they locked antlers. I called and they split and I saw an 8 work a rub, a second grunt and he was on his way. He actually came right to the base of my tree. I looked him over and thought yeah, I'll take him. Then the second buck was coming and I was praying he was bigger but it was a small 6 he locked up with. As they walked away, I drilled the 8. I call him my Halloween buck. I'd like to take one tomorrow as well. Here's my Halloween buck.

Very nice Rob and good luck tomorrow. My wife just informed that we have a get together with some friendswhile all of ourkids are out for tricks or treatstomorrow at 5:30pm.I think the look I gave hermade realize her mistake. I told her I won't even be out of my tree stand until after 6:30 unless I get lucky earlier in the day and even then I might dragging. I guess I'll show up late in my bow hunting costume, face paint and all.

RobI think of you every time someone mentions a Halloween buck. I thought you'd taken one on that day.

It sure would be a cool conversation topic

Unless my financial management professor literally calls off my exam alltogether within the next couple hours, I won't be able to hit a tree stand today. I will be out all day tomorrow though. Good luck to everybody!

Every year either me or my buddies have had success on Halloween day. Two years ago I shot a monster 7pointer, the year before that my friend shot a 8 point with 23inch spread, Last year my another buddy of mine shot a 152 inch 10point. The day has always been good!!

I think I read that too somewhere. I'd love to be out today, but work and taking the little guy Trick or Treating will prevent that.
