I got off early yesterday and wanted to hunt one more time. I have been going threw deer meat like crazy this year with all the jerky I have been making. So I get to the stand around 2:30pm. I was confident I would see something but was hoping to see one early so I could possible shoot 2. Right around 4pm a deer shows up. It's coming my way but go strait for the bag of corn I hid by a tree.  Huh It starts kicking the bag and eating out of it.  laugh I could not believe my eyes. Then 3 min later another deer shows up and starts walking towards me. I have my bow in my hand but it is facing right towards me for like 10 mins feeding. But finally is turns to the side like it's about to leave. I draw back and fire an arrow. Looks to be a little back but it was turning away so I think it was a good shot. I can see blood coming from the entrance wound. I wait to see if anything else is coming. Around 5:15 just when I was planning on getting down I see a deer. It stays behind a tree for like 5 min before moving. Then another deer comes from the other way and comes to the corn. It's a spike. The other deer starts coming in and it's a small buck as well. I see more deer behind it and wait. The last deer to come in was another doe. I had 5 deer in front of me and it was starting to get dark. The bucks chased the doe right below me and I shot it about 10 yards from my stand. She drop about 30 yards behind me. No tracking needed for this one. Went to my truck and grabbed my knife and deer cart. Field dress the one close to me and dragged it to the truck. Then looked for the other one. Thought it would be an easy track but it was hard finding blood. I lost blood for a little bit and just walked in the direction I thought it went. Found a bed and where it had kicked around. I knew it would not be that much further. 2 feet away found blood on a tree. Then another 5ft was my deer. It only went around 120 yards. From the time I shot her and tracked her down was only maybe 3 hours, but in that time the fox had already started eating her stomach. Shot was a little far back but hit her front shoulder. I have a hill that I have to drag the deer up and I was dead tired after dragging both them out. But my freezer is full again. Now I just need to get me some fish and crabs! I had a good season this year. Hope my crabbing and fishing season is good as well.

Looks like there's three deer there. Where did the other one come from? Heart attack?

Nice.  Great way to end your season.

I was out last Saturday and the neighbor next to the property I was hunting decided to re-live WW2.  He shot from 1:30 when I got in the stand until 5:45 non-stop.  Sounded like 22's to cannons.  Sad  Not a thing showed up until 6:30pm after I left.

I will be back out Fri and Sat hoping for at least one more for the year.  If not, it wasn't meant to be but it still was a good year.  My wife got her first nice buck and I got a nice one.  Now to pay the Taxidermist.

During the regular season you have to follow the season rules but before or after, you have your choice of weapon and you are allowed to hunt Sundays

Made my last trip this past week.  Let a doe yearling and a 3 point walk.  20 yd. shot.  Big buck busted me before I could pull the trigger.  Season closed today so I know he'll be there next year.

BTW good going In.

Correct Chris, the wife and I are agents

135 acre vineyard with 30 acres of grapes and 100+ acres of woods.  DMP is for 30 does a year.  Tons of them plus lots of nice and upcoming bucks.  Best of all, it's a free lease and we usually get a couple bottles of wine each year.   Smiley

That has always been the joke.......pre-marinated.

They do a lot of damage, the last 2 years, harvest has been down 65%.  It was even worse before we started hunting there.  Between the damage to the vines, canopy, and the fruit.  He has even gone as far as to put up an 8' fence at the wood line and you still see them and plenty of signs in the vineyard area.  I keep telling him that fence does very little to stop them.

We don't have an issue with it. We actually use bow all year long.  Keeps the woods quiet for the most part and makes you make good shots

Just be careful D if you want to keep that free lease. A friend and i leased hunting rights on a small farm in worcester county years ago and the farmer said the deer were taking a toll so he want us to kill. We killed a few the first year but not enough to make him happy so he put us off after the first year.

Thanks Rdbeard.

Hopefully we wont have to face that issue.  We make sure we let him know everything we kill so he sees we are doing something.  We also help out around the property so its not just hunting.  We help in the spring with getting the vines ready and in the fall with picking.  It saves him labor costs so he gets the benefits several ways and when I say we, I have the entire family out helping.  It saves him a ton of money in labor so benefits several ways.
