Have shot deer every year at less than bow range (6pt was grazing so close I could have poked him with a stick) . Sure wish Illinois DNR would bump firearms season back a couple of weeks so bowhunters could hunt the peak of rut.

I bow hunt there regularly during archery season, and more often than not don't see any deer, (that would be with no eating, smoking, peeing or farting, totally concealed and with the utmost attention to scent conrol). Guess all I was saying was that deer act very non-chalante* during the peak of the rut, and I wish us bowhunters could hunt the rut before gun season starts. Hell I've shot deer during gun season just so they didn't walk into me.
