Recurve blacktail
« on: October 22, 2021, 07:23:09 PM »
This is my best deer ever.

I was still hunting a ravine this afternoon when I heard and then saw a doe moving through underbrush pretty close to me. The wind was good and it was raining so she did not detect me. Her tail was straight back and I was suspicious she was being pursued, so I nocked an arrow and crouched behind some big sword ferns. Just a few seconds later this buck crested the edge of the ravine and started following. I let him get about 15 yards quartering away and shot him in the chest and watched him fall. Pretty amazing. 55# Wes Wallace recurve.

Is that a lowland deer? It's a beast. Obviously rutting hard?

Fantastic Blackie! Congrats.

Saw a really nice 2x3 this evening after shooting hours. Was really tearing up a tree. Didnt care that we were sitting in a running vehicle watching him from 30 yards away!

Really good deer, congratulations  :tup:
He's not trolling you - he's mocking you

Did you ever notice that the biggest critics of formal education have little of it?

Cloaking ignorance and bigotry in an elementary school understanding of scripture doesn't change the fact that it's ignorance and bigotry.
