Probably had my best season ever. I bow hunted 5 times and killed 3 mature does. November had me chasing a 10 pointer that I had been seeing on camera since July but never in person. One early November morning I had decided to move locations mid morning due to the wind and I had no longer sat down when my 1st buck of the season showed up. A doe popped out with a 4 1/2 year old 10 pointer hot on her heals. At the shot he mule kicked and ran but didnt leave any sign of a hit. We looked for a hour and choked it up as a miss although I was all but sure I hit him. 8 days later I returned to the same area to hunt and smelled him. He had only ran a 100 yards or so through some planted pines and died. Disappointed that I didnt get the meat but happy to still have his rack. I tagged him because I thought it was the right thing to do since I knew i killed him. I had never seen this buck before.

Later in November I was sitting in a ground blind that I had just put up the day before watching over some dropping swamp chestnut oaks. It had been a slow morning when I heard just a little something in the canes in front of me. I knew immediately I was shooting him but didnt pay attention that it was the buck that I had been hunting over a mile away. I shot him with my blr 308 and he only made it about 30 yards and fell. I had my 2nd 4 1/2 year old 10 pointer of the season.

I also killed 5 pigs and 1 more doe with a rifle. Most importantly I enjoyed hunting with some of my closest friends all year.

Really looking forward to knocking the dust off of my coon dog and preparing for turkey season now.

Glad you did so well! I feel blessed to have had a great season too, but I’m sad to see it go. It’s like college football. I may not enjoy it every opportunity I get, but it’s sure nice to know it’s there.
