1st of the season

Post by down4dacount » Wed Sep 07, 2016 9:31 pm

Opening day 9pt at 20 yards . Loving the new Hoyt Carbon Element G3 . Got on stand at 6:30 and just as there was enough light . I heard noise in palmettos right under . Had a doe bedded at 15 feet . She fed around for an hour . At 8 , I picked up the grunt call , grunted twice and saw movement to my left . Doe at 60 yards . She fed closer to me . At 8:20 heard a deer coming from in front . I see a nose and a rack . Oh yeah , right at 20 yards . As soon as he turned , I drew back , put the 20 yard pin on him and squeezed trigger . Spitfire hit the mark , he took off and I heard him splash about 60 yards . Gave him 20 minutes , found the arrow covered in blood . I went straight to where I heard the crash . There he was . Thank You Lord . All the scouting paid off .

Congrats and that's a great looking bow by the way. We can always count on you to get the season started. We open next weekend and I can't wait.

Nice one!!! He looks like an 8/9 (i'd call it a 10 with that little bump on the above the right brow) Whatever he turns out to be, it sure looks like bacon wrapped backstrap is on the menu!

Have you ever heard of the Florida blood trailers association? They have a facebook page and have guys all over the state that will come track your deer for nothing. They can usually be there in a couple of hours or less. I have never needed to use them but follow them close listening to all of te storys. they recovered like 50-60 deer last year. Just a thought, if nothing else you might just want to follow them for the reading.
