Well, just 53 days and counting before Bow Season begins....but who's counting? I sure am!!!!! I haven't been out scouting very much what little I have done, the deer are locked in their summer patterns and are easy to find early mornings and late afternoons.
Let's see some views from your favorite stand locations! Here is one that I have a lot of success from with easy access. Last....
I had family over for my wife's lasagna tonight. She used my Italian seasoned brown ground / venison. My college niece said, 'this is the best lasagna I've ever eaten'. I told her thank you. She said but, aunt Marci made it. I told her yeah but, I killed it. She said, How do you kill lasagna. Thought I was going to pee my pants. I told her it was deer meat and she said it sure is good.
Ok folks, I know I'm not the only one that was in a tree Saturday morning! Where are those stories and pictures.
I managed to squeak out a doe around 8:30am in the rain. It wasn't pretty she had her head in a bush at 35 yards. The arrow deflected just as it got to her and hit her high in the backbone. I hate when that happens but, no tracking in the rain. I watched her for 40 minutes....
Twas' the night before bow season and all through the house, everyone was scurrying, even the mouse! The washer was washing the hunting clothes to kill scent and mom was wondering where the money all went. As I nervously replied that it went for some hunting stuff, she turned away without even a huff! She to remembered September last year, when I started bringing home all kinds of deer. Back....
It is in great sadness that I pass this information. One of our moderates and a very dear friend to many on this site. Jeffrey T. Smith of Kannapolis has lost his short 3 months battle with cancer this morning around 11am.
R.I.P. My dear friend. You fought a great battle. 3 months is hard to understand but I know you are a great Christian man and God must have needed you in Heaven. We....
It's that time again. Pre-Rut is here. Thought I'd share a Jerky recipe with you!

Tagged Out! God was good this year and blessed me with 2 nice Tom's. Both were epic spot and stalks. The Tom's were tight lipped and would hang up everytime. I guess I was hunting educated birds. I'm kind of glad my hunts worked out the way they did because putting a stalk on a wise Tom was an exciting challenge! I know 'Creek' was crawling every inch with me while I was wearing 'Papa....
My Step-Father as we called him, Papa Bill. Passed away June 9th 2012. I told my mom that I wanted his fishing hat for the fishing memories. I saw his hat hanging in my office before my hunt so I decided to bring it and him along with me for luck.
Early Saturday morning with a crescent moon and one bright star rising in the eastern sky, I let out a couple of yelps. Right off 2 gobblers on....
This is a video that I shot and edited. Before anyone says anything, I will be the first to say this is not a shot to take unless you are dead confident with your abilities. This is a shot taken and discussed in a few archery circles. This is very educational for beginner archers, because you can see how easy it is to miss this shot. This doe was double lunged and shot through the heart.....
Not a shot I recommend unless you practice it. I\'ve been practicing this 100 yard shot for 3 years now. Some of you members may have seen my video on the new bow strings I put on my 7 year old Hoyt TrykonXL this year. New strings out of the box with very little practice I hit 4 for 4 on a 3-D target at 100 yards. A little more shooting and tweaking of my right left windage and I was....
Second times a charm....Doe number 3! I sat this bean field the first time a week ago and had a old man on a bicycle ride down the field edge to try to get a closer look at a doe feeding in the beans. He didn't even know I was there, when he stopped 50 feet from me and the doe ran off. I didn't say anything because I know the guy and know he was just trying to enjoy the years he has left.....
This is the 8 minute video of Opening Day. Only one deer was harmed in the making of this video (and it\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s not on the video) but you can hear it run into the ladder stand. These Rage 2 Blade Chisel Tips were extensively test for impacts with the dirt....lol!
Hey folks. Please be in prayer for a very, very dear friend of mine and this website. His name is Jeff Smith AKA Creek07. He is one of the moderators for us. Jeff is 42 years old and his Birthday is next Saturday.
He came down with symptoms of cancer of the esophagus, while on a Kansas muzzle loader hunt back in September of this year. He is home now with Hospice and not doing very well.....
