    Archerysniper reacted to Scoot in Tagged out in nd   
    I missed the biggest buck I've ever shot at a week prior, but last weekend I managed to shoot this respectable 5x4 in ND.  It was the first few minutes of legal shooting time on a cloudy morning and I had to make a pretty quick decision to shoot.  I thought he was bigger, but I honestly can't say I'm upset I shot him either.  Tagged out in ND.  
     
    Now, if I could just get one to cooperate with us so my son could get a shot.  Three close calls this weekend, but no arrows flung!

    My little girl, Morgan, is now 10 years old and able to hunt in MN.  She put a perfect shot on a doe last night and she only made it about 50 yards before we watched her drop.  She and I are both thrilled with the outcome!

    2 yards from the tree and I was 12 feet up,not much travel time on that arrow. As soon as I touch the release the next thing I saw was just the knockturnal lighted knock sticking out of the sweet spot.

    Shot a 10 point with the slick trick raptor trick last week and was really happy with the results. Shot him at 2 yards so I waited for a quartering away shot to open up more of the vitals. Broadhead took a rib and a chunk of a vertebra going in 2 ribs,sternum and part of the leg going out. Slightly bent a blade otherwise no damage to the head. Only thing I didnt like was the entry hole in the hide was only 3/4" wide and that is because of the front deployment design. Once it was through the hide it opened to the full 2" cut. Blood trail at impact was 2 feet wide and he only went 25 yards.  I have taken 3 deer and a turkey this year with different heads. A whitetail doe and turkey with 3 blade rage chisel tip,both broadheads were broke after the shot. A mule deer doe with a griztrick 2,30 yard shot pass through. Great blood trail head was perfect and still sharp. And the buck with the raptor trick.

    My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year. 
     
    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun. 
     
    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.
     
    My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy. 
     
    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud.

    SOrry I've been MIA, but like everyone, I've been super busy. I had a plan to drive to SD last week, but the weather was terrible so I chose to stay home. I hunted down near Caledonia on the advice of a buddy down there. My days are very set due to my work schedule. Unfortunately the gun seasons split suring my days off so rather than hamstring myself with a a 2-day shotgun hunt, I chose to hamstring myself with a bow tag. Pick your poison I guess. 
    Needless to say, I've never had such tough hunting in the 10 years I've been turkey hunting. I never saw a tom while hunting and only got some distant gobbles on the last day of my hunt. 
     
    Fortunately for me, I've got several chances coming up for a Nebraska trip and that Black Hills tag is a $100 bill burning a hole in my pocket. Hopefully a few more tries in MN with the bow. 
     
    Now that I set the stage, I get to go figure out how to add the pictures from the amazing Nebraska trip I just returned from. I haven't scored him yet, but he is a nice bird and a Merriams hybrid to boot.

    This is the bird I called in for my buddy this morning. He saw the decoy at 80 yards and hung up. It took at least twenty minutes of soft clucks and purrs to close to thirty yards where he made the shot. i understood why he was so wary when I saw those spurs. 1.25"each side and really sharp and hooked. true limb hanger.
