November 2 hunt


Got off work early today so I figured I better take advantage of the day light hours while I can so I threw on my camo and head to the woods. Got in the stand at 1530, what a beautiful evening it was. At 1600 I had 7 squirrels on my small corn pile in front on me practicing for the olympics. Man were those suckers were loud and crazy. At 1630 I heard some leave rustling, coming down the path to my right. I slowly turned my head to look, thinking I was gonna see squirrel number 8 coming to play but to my surprise it was a big bodied spike. He came right on in and started eating with the squirrels, nudging one with his nose that kept getting in his area. Darnedest thing I've ever saw. All this is taking place 13 yards in front of me. I'm still sitting, bow still hanging. Talking about unprepared.
I kept throwin the thought around in my head whether or not I should try and stand up or just sit and watch. Well the fever and my handicapped cousin thats been on me about taking him a deer for the freezer got the best of me. I figured if I could pull this one off then it would be a well earned harvest. I eased up, removed my bow from the hook, hooked my release on my loop and BAM .... that joker looked right up at me as if he was saying ...... what are you doing up there pal. That didn't last long, after he bobbed and weaved his head alittle and I didn't budge he went back to munching on the corn. I drew the 82nd Airborne, put the pin on the zone and hammered that ol boy. He ran straight up the hill turned back to the right and I heard him crash.
I sat back down, called my cousin to give him the good news and decided to go ahead and sit there til dark. Well I must say it was a good day, about 15 minutes before dark 3 does and a 4 point buck showed up to have a snack. I sat and watched them til dark, got down outta my stand located the blood trail and headed to the house. Did I mention all this took place behind my house. Being so close to the house and as cold as it is I decided to wait til in the morning to gather this one since my cousin always like to skin and quarter what I give him. It makes him feel like he's still in the game and I enjoy seeing the excitement he gets out of it.

Great hunt! My husband read along with me and he was very impressed with your hunt and the fact that you included your cousin and his feelings. We all know how horrible it would be to not be able to climb that tree or crawl through the brush after a blood trail. We applaud you all the way!! What a guy!! :)
