A Lesson in Humility

This year, my husband busted (and I mean BUSTED) his butt to make extra money to gain us access to a deer hunting lease. There were months where he'd only have one or two days off the entire month. Our regular public land was over fifty miles one way, we had the new baby so that drive was even less convenient than last year, and now this particular public land was getting over hunted and everyone's stuff co ...

Rich’s Hunt Went from Bad to Good… 3 Arrows Later!

Ok, this hunt started off crappy! First I dropped my camera from 20+', I then cut myself with a limb saw, forgot the camera clip for my Viper Tree Arm but then all was forgotten when the deer started coming in! Had 2 chances at the albino doe I saw last week. I held my bow at full draw for 5 minutes waiting for a shot. I know this cause Steve got it all on film.  I was covered by doe so I could move too muc ...

Rich Gets Attacked by a Buck!

Ok here's what had happened!  Since I was unable to get to my lock on that was across a deep Creek, I hiked down the sewer line some and found a good small tree to hang my Black Widow Deer Lures from.  I must have gotten some on me! I was covered in deer the whole hunt . Mostly doe and spikes. They were all close encounters. I had a doe 4-5 ft from me, I could count the whiskers and smelt her breath(not goo ...

Haley Price Harvests a Monster NC Buck!

It was November the 5th. My friend rufty had just baited this new spot the Sunday before. I actually skipped class that day because the weather had just gotten cold and I knew that the deer would be moving. So let me tell you a little about this spot. It was perfect. I was hunting in what you would call a knob or a point of the woods and all around it was a new cutover just cut that summer therefore; there ...

John’s Largest Bow Buck to Date!

I am an avid bowhunter. I carry my bow on almost every hunt I venture on whether it's Alligators, Bear, Hogs or Small Game. The one animal that has eluded me so far has been a mature whitetail buck! Not anymore. This past weekend I was able to harvest my biggest buck with my bow to date. He's not a 180 class freak but he's a trophy in my book and will look great in my man cave! What a journey it has been... ...

A Long Game of Chess with a Matriarch Doe Comes to an End

The setting has been too familiar. The similar still morning, the similar walk down the sewer line, the similar blow of a doe that has made us! I have been hunting this property for over 8 years now. It is a small property that gets a lot of deer traffic coming and going. It doesn't hold deer but they enjoy visiting the tasty vegetation planted on the sewer line for the land owners' horses. Most of the deer ...

Bow Hunting Reaching a Goal, the Story of the 100 Yard Bowkill!

I have always been amazed at the technology and advancements in the Bow industry in just the last nine years that I have been bow hunting. I have looked at everything from arrow weights, splines, even something as minor as a fletch and the difference small things make in a big way. Through a lot of research, trials and errors I have even played with the dynamics of the bow itself. Long story short I have fo ...

John Stretches it Out with a 50yd Bowkill!

We have been hunting hard the past few days. Not getting into any shooter bucks this weekend we started to get back into our doe management program. I strongly believe in harvesting as many does as possible before the rut takes place in our area, middle to the end of November. Daniel and myself headed to a property in Stanley County for a short afternoon hunt, we had no idea it was going to be this short! W ...

David Comes Back to the 704 to Lower the Boom on a Few NC Deer! Part 3

Hunt #3 day 6: After spending the weekend with the grandparents, we headed back to NC for my last chance at a NC buck.  With all the activity we had been hearing about we were really hoping to get on a buck. Well the morning didn't disappoint.  After sneaking into the stand in the dark and spooking a deer out of the field we didn't know what to expect.  We weren't in the stand long when we caught movement c ...

David Comes Back to the 704 to Lower the Boom on a Few NC Deer! Part 2

Day 2: My First Doe Daniel, my brother, and I got in the tree around 2pm. It was a windy day. Fortunately the wind was in our face and not blowing in the direction the deer had been entering the field the past few days. It was a bit chilly so we were expecting some good movement.  Just as the night before, the sun started to drop close to the horizon when one after one, 3 deer piled out into the field not 6 ...
