Post 8pt Down
Well it all finally came together yesterday morning for me after 4 long days of hunting on my vacation. The first 3 days we spent up in chenengo county where we saw some great action the first morning and i was drawn back on a big 7 pointer but he just wouldnt take the last two steps to come out of the bursh and give me a shot. The weather got warm after that and we didnt really see much for the rest of the weekend up there. We headed back to greene county on monday afternoon and got right in the stands. I had a decent 7 point come by the stand chasing does but he wouldnt give me a shot either and then they ran off. Then came Tuesday morning. It was on the warm side but i was in my favorite stand at my uncles farm where i always see action. First light i had a coyoted come in but he stayed about 50 yards out and i couldnt get a shot. I then started using the primos can call and i called in a spike right under my stand. He stayed for about 15 minutes and then ran off. I then called my brother joe to see what he was seeing and he said that he didnt see much. RIght after i hung up with him i had another buck coming down the hill towards my stand. I could see it was bigger than the first one that came in so i picked up my bow and got ready. He came in quick and i tried to stop him with a quick grunt which stopped him for about a 1/4 of a second about 20 yards out. As soon as i took the shot he started to walk again and i hit him high and broke his back. He dropped right there and i knocked another arrow and took shot 2. He was now down behind some trees so i took the shot and the second arrow hit a branch and went right into his gut. I coudltn believe it. i quickky knocked a 3rd arrow and basically had to climb around the tree to get another clear shot which went right into the lungs. After about 30 seconds it was all over and he was lying under my stand. The worst part was that it was raining in the morning so we didnt take the big camera out and i didnt get the kill on film :(. I will be filming mike for the rest of the week until gun on monday so hopefully we can get a nice buck on film before the week is up. We will keep you guys posted.

Me three. I loved my long range shooting but I am a bowhunter by passion. I am also looking to break my record of 4 deer in a season. I am tied right now with a month to go. That is if I can keep getting out of bed and hunting. Tomorrow I am winging it, if I wake I hunt if not I sleep in and hunt the night sit. No more does either. So breaking the record will have to be with a buck. John & Mike we need to set up a date to get AF here for a video hunt. Let us know whats available and I will check my calender as well. Florida is right around the corner and I am going to try and squeeze a lot into 6 weeks. I better get to bed, hunting days are running low. :lol:
