9 point down

Postby DaveHawk » Mon Nov 09, 2009 8:02 am

35 yard shot
I put a nice 9 point down yesterday in Va. I hunted my stand on the edge of the field. Early morning doe's and turkeys entered and left then about 11:30 I hear a buck grunting but I could not coax him into the field with the bleat or gunt or antlers, I waited another half hr after I didn't hear him any longer and then made a quick move to a stand I set up 3 years ago across the field just inside the woods about 130 yards away on the high ground. I get in hit the bleat about 7 times and then a real raspy grunt call and as I was watching the hard woods to my right and field edge I hear quick moving movement and turn to the left and he he comes. Noise down and I had to turn and thinking he is pre-occupied I was able too get set. I could not get him to stop so as he passed a big popular I picked my spot on the shoulder {Aim small miss small} I fired and he piled up 35 yards. I walked down to him but 1st saw the blood trail and holy splatters I blew out the top of the heart with a pass though.
Jake is a big help.He shot a small BB thinking is was a doe in the afternoon after he returned to the farm from taking SAT's in the morning.

This will be Biologic next year, The back corner is where I moved to call the 8 over from behind me. 27 turkeys and 18 deer were in the field at one time on Friday afternoon.

This is another field to be Biologic next year, The center field is 20 acres of Buck wheat now which will go to hay for the horses.

I haven't been in the woods this year. Was in the Philippines during MD muzzleloader season then my step father died two weeks ago. I took off Friday and now they are calling for rain all week. I have 3 more days of vacation I have to use before the end of the year so I'll probably take it during shotgun season.
