Halloween Trick or Treat in local urban swamp

Unread postby GRUD » Fri Nov 05, 2010 11:21 am

Went out Halloween evening to local urban swamp dressed up as John Eberhart in my ambush saddle. It ended up being ladies night and these two kept wanting to go for a ride on my hitch hauler so I finally gave in. It turned out to be a real drag. Anyway, really cool beast style hunt, I set the tree up in March. Thick, very nasty swamp, both ten yard shots, they were bedded within 50 yards, I watched them get up and come my way. I intended to hunt for a my urban buck but I noticed that the rubs were on the wrong side of the trees this year like the buck was moving through in the morning back to the bedding area. I shot the first doe and they both ran back to their beds, I blew my grunt tube and the other circled back to the same exact spot I shot the first so I shot her too. 100lbs and 98 lbs dressed. Shot near an intersection where more than 10 deer are hit every year. Just trying to do my part to protect my fellow motorists.

nice, I had a double one time I had to use the same arrow. I shot a doe and she went down, the arrow went in the lungs and stuck in the far shoulder. She was close and still alive so I shot again. Got down and pulled out my second arrow, tried on the first one still stuck. Got back in my stand and shot a 8pt buck that night. One of my best hunts ever. You should be lucky to see does I think they are instinct.
