Hope you are right. I did see a few this morning as I was hunting.
Figured I'd see if the deer were moving before our shotgun weekend starts but I had a bad day though: I brought my buddy's crossbow instead of my compound bow. I am regretting that because I had a doe in my sights and shot at it about 35 yards. I liver shot her... tracked her for 3 hours and then the blood trail went dry. It twists my stomach, thinking how I injured that deer. I did all I could do to try and pick back up on a blood trail. The crossbow is very loud when the trigger is pulled and I think the doe jumped the string because I had the bow sighted in myself and was dead on at the target range. I put the sight on this doe right over her shoulder and she was standing completely still, gnawing on an overhanging branch so there is no reason for a liver shot. The only thing I can think is she heard the bow release and jumped the string. This is the second time now that it happened to me using this crossbow plus I killed a buck earlier this year but luckily I recovered him easily. The shot too was further back then where I had the sights.
So on my way home, I stopped back in at the gun club, went over to the archery range, went 35 yards from the target and shot two bolts... bullseye both times. So the bow is fine... I now believe the loudness is the real problem. I think I will head back out to track that deer again if not today, then tomorrow morning. Luckily I hunt private property so there should hopefully be no hunters to disturb. Hope I beat the coyotes.
