  1. Good Opener

    I'll try to get a pic when my son is around to help. The only one I have is on my phone. I'm not tech saavy enough to do it myself.
  2. Good Opener

    Got my first bow turkey at 8:00 this morning. 22.4 pounds inch spurs and 8 inch beard. A lot of birds gobbling but they got a late start.
  3. RUT REPORTS

    Son was hunting yesterday morning. had a doe come in with a fawn, followed closely by a decent buck. He got a nice 15 yd broadside shot. the buck went about 60yds and tipped over.

    I have been using Shwacker head the last two years. I only shoot 57lbs. I have shot bucks the last two years, but neither one was a pass through. What heads do you use that fly good and get good penetration?
  5. Archery opener reports

    I had four come by about 7:45. A single doe about 40 yards out and a few minutes later a doe with 2 fawns about 15 yards. Easy shot on the doe, but I'm in a one deer area and didn't want to burn my tag on a doe this early.
  6. Preference level

    When you check your results, it shows your preference level for the current drawing, not for next year. Anyone who has never applied or who was drawn the previous time gets a preference level of one. If you applied the last time and were not drawn, then your preference level would be two. If you didn't get drawn again, then next year it would be a three.
  7. Shot a nice buck this morning!

    I had the rack scored at the lcal archery shop today. It scored 130 gross. There are very few deductions. They said it should make P&Y.
  8. Shot a nice buck this morning!

    Thanks Boar for the intructions! I was butchering today. Tough crownd if you don't get pictures up right away!
  9. Shot a nice buck this morning!

    Well, it wass a short trail! I had just marked blood and then backed out this morning. When we went back out, I went to where I marked blood. I pointed out where I had last seen him. My friend took about three steps and said "There he is!". He went down within a few feet of where I last saw him. He was already stiff, so had been dead for a while. How do you post pictures?
  10. Lots of deer moving this morning. I rattled and heard deer running in. Turned out to be a doe and fawn.They stopped about 20 yds out and were looking around. Doe got nervous and walked off. Another doe came down the hill but followed the others. Five minutes later I heard some grunting. I grunted back and a small buck come in to check it out. Ten minutes later I rattled and grunted. I heard a deer walking in from the north. Then I heard one coming from the south. This was a nice one. He marched right in and stuck his nose in a scrape. Looks like I hit him right behind the shoulder. He trotted about 20 yds and stopped. Stood a couple of minutes and slowly walked down hill about 10 yds. He got wobbly and went down. He laid there abot 15 min and got up and slowly walked off. When I got down, my arrow was covered with blood. Shot him at 7:50 and am going back to look at 11:00. Hopefully he won't be far from where I last saw him!
  11. Broadhead

    Has anyone used the Slick Trick either standard or mag while using 2 inch blazers. I used to shot Muzzy, but when I started using blazers, I couldn't get the Muzzy to shoot consistent.
  12. Fall Hunting results

    I haven't seen any results posted from the fall hunt. Has anyone bagged any birds?
  13. Results

    Sat this morning and had a small doe with a fawn about 12 yards. I'm in the cwd area, but let her walk. She was small and the fawn still had some faint spots. Nice to get out again.
