Sat tonight and seen nothing. WINDY and Freaking Cold. Not sure if I could of drawn back at dark or not. Stiff Muscles, Snot running, hands frozen, back killing me, if the spike would of shown up he woulda paid for all these treestand symptoms..LOL
Hopefully I can hold out for the 8. I'm not real patient though.
I'll be hitting it again in the morning and if needed the evening also.
Here he is guys. Not a big one by any means but another bowkill to the tally. Spike FD 118 lbs
Another cold and very windy morning. I got into stand around 7:20 a.m. Things started lightening up and around 7:50 a doe and button buck worked their way in. They were feeding for around 35 minutes or so. She started acting odd (looking up the other trail and stomping her feet) then her and the button left. Maybe 2 minutes later I could here some crunching and I knew it was a deer coming down the other trail. Hoping it was the 8pt. I see some bone coming through the brush but could tell it was the spike. He came in and fed for 5 minutes and I decided to take him. 18 yard shot. He squatted on the shot and I ended up spining him and dropping on the spot. Nocked another arrow and sent another through his back and into the chest cavity. I did video the hunt/kill if anyone is interested.
I told you this bucks tongue would be hanging out before its over with. I tucked his tongue back inside his mouth for the pic. Adam from New York with the 8 pt. Have pics of a mature 9 pt on this same stand.
I'm glad he shot this buck and I got the spike. Biggest buck of his hunting career so far. Dropped in its tracks at 20 yards.
That's really cool! Shows you what hunting is all about NBG. The feeling you get seeing another hunters excitement is sometimes worth more than your own. Especially when that hunter "really" appreciates it! Good Job!
