RE: Post Your Fall 2010 Hunt Pictures

This past Monday morning was a great morning to be in one of my new stands . We had seen 8 diferent bucks from this stand in the 2 times we had been there . On my way in Monday morning I could hear a couple bucks sparing and wondered what the morning was going to hold for me . Before I had made it to my stand I started heaaring 2 more bucks sparing and I thought this could get interesting .
As it started getting light I could see 6 bucks within 70 yards of my stand and more bucks were coming in . I ended up with 14 -15 bucks around my stand .
At one point there were 3 seperate fights going on . The 1 1/2 old bucks were not doing much but the 2 1/2 year olds were getting after it pretty good at times .
I have deer hunted for 34 years and I have seen a few fights but nothing like this . Every buck there was locked up with another one at one point or another and this all lasted for about an hour .
I usualy hold out for 3 1/2 year old or better but I got caught up in all the excitement and shot this nice 2 1/2 year old buck .

After the deer started seperating I tried a few grunts with not much sucsess but a snort weeze brought him to within 20 yards . He turned just as I released my arrow and I knew it was not a good hit but he stoped behind my stand and my second arrow found its mark right behind the sholder . He went about 20 more yards and expired .

In the end my only regret is that I did not have a vidio camera to capture all of the activity but it will live forever in my mind .

Congrats!  I'm sure he'll look nice on the Elk and Elk Hunting website (if there is such a thing).

Great deer everyone! Congratulations to all!

I was able to put a perfect 24 yd shot on an adult doe within my first 30 minutes on stand, first hunt of the year, last night. I had some rough luck and lost a couple of deer last year so I really appreciated the chance to make a clean kill. Feeling confidant and filling freezer space!

shot a doe yesterday morning at 7:25 in the IL season opener. First time I've done that. No pictures because I forgot my camera. Go figure, had the tripod though.....
