I was out this past Friday and work has prevented me from getting out this week thus far. Made some bleat calls while a doe was in the area, had a 4 and little 6 come in together checked out the doe, and quickly moved out together. They both were afforded the luxury and walking away as top of archery range for me with some cover thrown in. Would not have been a wise shot.

I cut open the stomach like a previous poster does because I was curious, and there wasn't an acorn in sight. I took a picture if anyone would like to see it.

Stopped down the summer place today in Dagsborro and saw this.... I guess the drug epidemic is now taking hold of the deer population?

LMAO... I think I found my new hunting spot

I am hoping this guy will come by during daylight hours. All pics I have are nocturnal. One at last light.

I still have some acorns by me and can't wait till there gone cause I have to hunt more in the open although along a tree line.
Where did the tip stick in on that doe? Rib? Shoulder? Spine?

Don't forget that they can chew up the acorns. I don't have pictures of what that looks like though.

Stuck in the shoulder bone. It thrashed around, but wasn't going anywhere, so I walked up to it and put one more in the chest that killed it immediately. You can see the lighted blue knock in the chest.

And I didn't even think about them chewing up the acorns! Duh!

I had an 8 pt walk in yesterday as I was getting ready to pack it in because of the rain. I let him go and watched as he bumped a couple of does and followed them around. I was afraid of losing a blood trail in the rain.

Say all day. Nothing moving this morning that I could see. Around 330 about a dozen does came out grazing the far field about 200 yards from my climber. By 4 a big boy came in and chased them in and out of the field until after 5, but never in my direction. Just as I was getting ready to pack up this four pt and another he was cruising with cam walking by. first shot failed to go through (was leading his slow walk and he stopped as I shot so caught him in the shoulder. Climbed down and followed the lit nock the forty yards he tried to run and finished him. Lighted nicks are awesome (my first time with them) but they both broke on impact - light portion intact and working but the half moon is gone. These things are cool foraging tracking a lot easier if they lodge in like they did here, but at $10 each Iím not too happy with single use... at least I got my dead meat broadhead back.

I saw a review of the bolts I use that said they break lit nocks. They werenít kidding. I like the piledrivers for their accuracy and being hard hitting but I may look for a replacement.

Can someone explain the rules to me regarding buck harvesting? I read that a buck as defined has at least two points on one antler or one antler being more than 3 inches long. And then it says that you can take a buck that has at least three points on one antler. Does that mean that if you take a buck with one point per antler, longer than 3 inches, the next buck you take MUST have 3 points on an antler? And no bonus stamp needed for the second one? Can they both be taken during archery?
