Arrowed another 8 Pt.

This has been a strange beginning deer season. As stated in a previous post, I hunted four counties for five weeks of archery season and saw zero deer. I was getting depressed and discouraged.

The opening day of gun season I saw eight deer and arrowed an eight pointer. I went back to the same stand this morning and saw six (4 bucks) and managed to arrow another eight pointer at 10:05 a.m. It was a 12 yd. shot and he was down at 50 yds. The first 8 pt traveled 15 yds. Those 4 bld. Magnus heads will put them down. I watched him fall and reached for another arrow and there was a 4 pt. under my tree.

I am going to sleep-in the next two days as I need some rest after dragging deer 250 yds by myself. I am 66 and it gets a little tiring but I still like the challenge of bowhunting. It will be does the remainder of the season except for a trip to Sapelo in Nov. I will take my camera to photograph some bucks.

I will be scouting two new places to hunt this week. Two total strangers told me I could hunt their farm land. One was a greeter at Wal-Mart that has farm land in the city limits. The other person is a new neighbor with a farm ten miles from my house. I never ask to hunt another persons land but usually mention that I bowhunt and obey the laws. If you treat people with respect you never know what might come your way.
 
Sounds like a mighty fine season (even the four counties and no deer is better than work:))

Congrats on the bucks, bring on the pics.

Congrats on some great success with the bow this year... :clap:

I'm glad to hear those Magnus heads are working out for you also since I just switched over to them this year myself, though I failed to get a shot at any during bow season in order to see how they worked first hand.
