2011 Deer Season

Postby TJR » Thu Oct 13, 2011 9:45 am

I figured I would get the thread started for this year...

I hope your seasons are going well. I have personally been SKUNKED and havent seen a deer in 8 hunts...
My Brother SCORED last night! A perfect october doe. This is his first year bow hunting, and thus his first bow kill. He struck with a perfect heart shot and had no trouble finding her as she only made it about 30 yards before it was all over. She dressed out a little below 100lbs and I am SUPER PROUD of him for such an awesome hunt.

On a side note, We use the Rage 2-Blade (2") expandables...HOLY CRAP! Not only did this deer not know what hit her, but she never stood a chance. The wound was massive, and extremely devastating when we opened her up. Her heart took the brunt of the blades which made it a no-doubt recovery. As grisley as that sounds, it is nice to know that a well-placed shot in combination with that technology is extremely lethal.

Good Luck to all, and keep us posted on your seasons!

Nice shot, heart shot deer really get up and go don't they? I shot a doe directly through the heart a few years ago and could not believe how fast she bolted and expired. Was really happy about that harvest. Congrats to your brother!

well done.
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.
