Well i didnt score out at half moon...but gotta say all in all it was a good hunt seen 19 deer 2 of which were bucks, a four point and a nice 8 point that wouldnt come no closer than about 70 yds...the joy of bow huntin...watchin a nice buck n not bein able to get a shot...also seen a big hog...they checked out 5 deer n 9 hogs...not bad for a 3 day archery hunt...now that i have found a productive deer area in there i will definitely try to go back there at some point...

i shot a nice 4 point through both lungs about 10 days ago. At 15 yds...could not find it..super bummer...Deer went down fast...when i went to get my deer he jumped up and ran...tail down into a giant field of chest high palmettoes...looked and looked..just disappeared....in the future only heart shots for me..i have a great bow...Hoyt and expensive broadheads...very disappointed.
will not share where i was hunting...sorry
