Well three tags purchased at the beginning of the season and three tags notched, I am officially done deer hunting this year! Now I know some of you are anti shooting does( and i can totally understand and respect that point of view)so I figured I'd add a couple different type of pictures without actually showing the deer much to avoid upsetting anyone. One picture is the view from my stand of the deer after she went down, it's not the best using an iPhone at full zoom from any kind of distance. The other is the damage done by my FX-3 broadhead and APA Mamba 6.5. The wind tonight I figured could be a big advantage.... It masks your movements with all the branches and leaves swaying and blowing around, it masks any noise you make, and it blows your scent away so you can really weaken a few of the deers defenses on a day like today. I sat in a stand that I had a hunch about tonight even though it's been totally dead the two times I sat there and the trail cams had zero deer on them by that stand, but it is traditionally a reliable location. Well a good half hour before dark a couple deer popped out onto the field 60 yards from behind me, directly downwind go figure. Normally 99% of the time they hit the field and go straight out away from the bush but for whatever reason they walked parallel to the bush towards me then right in front of me, never winding me miraculously. This nice doe gave me a 25 yard shot totally clueless to my presence, it was a little tricky aiming from a tree stand with a 70 km gusting winds but the shot hit its mark with a pass through and the deer expired quickly right in front of me on the field. Go figure I took the car instead of the truck not expecting to see many deer trying to save a few bucks on gas, so I had to go home with the car and come back with the truck( so much for saving money on gas . Got this one loaded no problem, Lol. Sorry for the post to all the guys that hate shooting does but like I said I hunt for the meat, and I'm pretty satisfied with my season but kind of sad to see it come to such an early end. I guess there's more fishing in my future now that I'm tagged out and I may even hang out with my wife a little now during a hunting season for once! Good luck to everyone and I look forward to all the stories and pictures from the muzzle and rifle seasons!
