I got a six pointer opening day not a real big rack but it was a real heavy boddied deer. dress out is came in a little under 200lbs. I stuck a doe last night just before dark and it got down in the swap I have to go find her after work today - I've been dying to get out of here all day -

I hit her square in the chest - can't belive she went as far as she did - I just hope the coyotes didn't get at her.

No pics of the six pointer though - just a scrub rack but meat in the freezer just the same.

I was up in chenago county this sunday by Whitney Point and boy was the wind howling and the off and on again rain didn't help much. But i think i had the best day in the woods yet in my 19 years of hunting. Me and my friend just left my brother at about 10:00am deciding if we were going to leave or stay the afternoon. As we were walking down a logging road my friend puts out his cigarette and wants to do a stalk for deer.Now i say to him what are the chances of us sneaking up on a deer with tree stands on our backs and him just finishing a smoke...well sure enough we round a bend in the logging road and he spots 3 does feeding. We drop to all fours, ditch the tree stands off our backs then crawl about 20 yards through the woods to where we could get a shot at the deer. I let him attempt the first shot because he has yet to get a deer with his bow but as he is drawing the doe spooks and jumps away a little.

I guess the saying curiosity kills the cat (or the doe in this case) is truebecause she never winded us and she didn't hear us she just saw some odd movement on a very windy day. Well sure enough here she comes again but this time i wasn't being so generous so now its my shot. After about another 5 minutes of slow approach by the doe her head goes behind a tree, i draw and put a great shot on her at about 15 yards. HOLY SMOKE WAS THAT A THRILL.

Been hunting with the muzzle loader up here in Essex County. To say it's been tough hunting so far is a major understatement. Opening weekend was some of the nastiest weather i've hunted in in quite some time. Saturday was downpouring rain and Sunday was windier than a preacher giving a sermon. To top it all off, two of my hunting partners are down with pneumonia and I've come down with a nasty cold myself.

It hasn't rained on everyone's parade though as I have seen a couple hefty 10 pters. that were taken by some other local hunters. I expect that things will pick up once the foliage drops and the weather cools a little more. We still haven't had a frost yet!

Looks like the weekend is turning into another wash out. I will tough it out, but this is getting old...
