Finally got it done in kapowsin during late archery! She isnt the biggest deer in the woods but she will eat really nice. 30 yard shot through a tiny hole in the reprod and i drilled her. Dumping rain made it hard to find her but thankfully she only went about 15 yards from where i shot her! Funny thing.. got her out and loaded in the truck and was thinking to myself.. going to see a buck on the way out. Half way out there was a big 3x3 in the middle of the dang road! Had to honk at him to get him out of the road and even then he just walked off like yeah you cant touch me!

That's good to hear I'm heading up tomorrow with my muzzy. Congrats on the deer good eats!!

That old school bow can still kill them :tup:
I have had that bow since i was 11, im 31 now. Its been hunting for 19 years and has killed 18 blacktails thus far. I keep thinking about replacing it.. but the draw is super smooth and it shoots super quiet compared to all my friends newer bows! Im thinking it will end up being replaced when i have kids and pass it down to them.

Well had a guy fly around a corner today up in the snow and it was either pull over hard or get in a head on. Ended up sliding off the road because of the slant and over the bank. Super super lucky my tire caught the edge of the road or I would have rolled. Had a couple guys stop when I was come alonging my way out and they hooked my strap up to there truck and we got it out. Pictures don't do the situation justice I was nervous. Didn't even get a scratch on the truck could have been much worse. Note to self, when planning on road hunting don't wear slippers. Feet were soaked and cold

HELL NO he didn't. I told the guys that stopped that the guy had came flying around the corner. They said oh black dodge? I said yup they said oh ya he came flying around us passing and was sliding everywhere spinning out. I'd like to find that dude and give him a piece of my mind I was pissed.

No deer just some elk and tons of people which surprised me

Bridge gate side? I was up south of the river,  and it was really coming down hard.
Coming around a tight corner, I met up with a coyote coming around the opposite way. He slammed on the brakes, did a small leap in the air and jumped off the side of the road, all the while I was digging for my pistol. :chuckle:
Couple hours later, I was nearing my favorite Christmas tree deer hangout, and a bobcat runs across the road not 20 yards in front of me, almost like running sideways watching me. I jumped out, and knocked an arrow, and tried to catch a glimpse, No dice.
Did see 5 deer total today without shot opportunities.
Always fun in the snow.

Ya man it was the bridgegate side! Sounds like a good day man that's bad ass. Lots of predators in there. Once I fill my deer tag it's game on for coyotes. The guys that helped me were Huntwa members they said. Casey and Corey. Bad asses it would have taken me a lot longer to use my come along then to have them pull with their truck

I was up there today from 2-4.  Never saw a deer which was weird.  Didn't see the black truck either.
