How is bow season going?

Postby kevjack6 » Thu Oct 07, 2010 5:23 am

Anybody out there bow hunting VT this year? Having any luck? What are you seeing for bucks? I saw 2 does and 2 fawns the opening day. 2nd evening I saw 11! Only 1 small buck and the rest were does and fawns.

Howdy fellow Vermonter! So far so good, took a doe opening weekend that was with 9 others. Saw a nice 8 from a distance and I know there is a big 10 nearby so my hopes are up to get one of them with the 2nd tag...........good luck to you and everyone else.!!!

Congrats on the doe! I've seen quite a few deer myself...16 the opening weekend. This past weekend wasn't so good...the apples really dropped hard so I think the deer are a little spread out. Unfortunately, I can only hunt on weekends :(

Where are you located?

I pretty much just hunt on my land in Albany. I have 106 acres there and I really don't have all that much time to travel anywhere unfortunately. Some day.....some day! Here the deer are really pounding the apples. We had some late frost up here so the apples are kind of spotty. We don't have any oaks in this area...some beechnuts from time to time.

No luck over the weekend...some does and fawns and that same small buck. The buck was starting to act a little rutty which is kind of early for here anyway. He came out of the woods birdogging a doe.

Any luck for you?

Thanks kev. 8 point 148#. Last Saturday at very last light. Just hoping to wack a doe, let one with a fawn go by. Just about to put the quiver back on the bow when I looked to my right and saw him. I said "that's a legal buck". 18 yards hit him. He dropped right there, I thought I spined him so I knocked another one and put in an insurance shot. I did not need it. Hit him on the left side ended up in the right shoulder.
58# mathews Q32, carbon wolverine arrow, Rage 100 gr two blade. Rage worked awsome, and are in perfect shape. Thanks for asking, good luck to you. Nice to have some VT'ers on here.

Congrats to you VT backstrap. I'm going for a flat top now. I've never tagged out before.
