New York luck

Postby NYarcher » Mon Oct 26, 2009 1:28 pm

Sorry I havent posted in a few days. Been real busy between getting out and still trying to finish my honey-do list. lol. Been tough hunts the last few days. Havent seen a whole lot but what I did see was all the worth it. When that storm front moved through here in genesse county saturday afternoon it got plain nasty. 20-25 mph winds with intermitent downpours. At about 6 I had taken enough beating and got ready to get down when a MONSTER stolled out 100 or so yrds down from me. Couldnt count points but it was real high over his head and at least 6 inches beyond his ears on both sides. He was a tank, easy 200 plus pounds. He walked up to within 50 yrds before he disappeared in the brush right at sunset. But this morning I was rewarded in another stand with my biggest to date. A beauty 8-pt. And he put on a good show tearing up a tree 10 yrds in front of me facing me. We had several staredowns but nomatter how hard he tried he could not wind me. So because he knew I was there and that I didnt belong he turned around, I drew, he ran cause he heard me, but he messed up cause he only ran 10 yrds. He stopped behind a tree blocking the front of the vitals so I tried to thread the needle as close to the tree as possible but pulled my shot (The fever and I tried to draw on him earlier getting busted and having to hold it back for over a minute!). I wound up hitting him far back but as luck would have it I cut his femoral artery. He only went 30 yrds. Lucky, lucky, lucky. Hope the rest of you have great luck this season also. And as Eddie put it last year, The beast is dead! lol

Way to go, Nick! I'll be hunting western New York the first week of gun season, and maybe more depending on whether I score in PA. Save one for me!

Thank you everyone. He's no monster but he's my monster! lol Great start to the freezer. The stand I shot him from had 10+ scrapes and a few rubs around it. Im pretty sure the main reason I got the opportunity at him was that I would not sit that stand unless the wind was perfect and it wound up paying off. My next mission is to try and get my lady her first. This weekend will be her first out this season due to her recent crazy schedule. Overall not many deer sightings. Alot of standing corn around here. I think that has contributed. Good luck to all. The rut is just around the corner!
