Ground and pound

Unread postby UntouchableNess » Sat Nov 12, 2011 3:33 pm

Today was a south wind, so I figured I could maybe stand on the ground next to a tree along our creek bottom. It runs north and south, with the property across the road to the south being in CRP. I figured the deer were bedding in there and would cross the road as the sun set. I shot a nice buck standing next to a tree in this creek bottom in 2009. I found the same tree and stood next to it again today.

About 4:12 pm, I hear something to the west and see a buck in our harvested corn field running at me. I had heard voices over at the neighbors, so wondered if they spooked him. He was coming in at warp speed. My bow was hanging on a branch and I couldn't get the grunt tube pulled out of my coveralls so he got by me before I was able to try to stop him. He heard my grunts as he stood next to the road, but continued on over it. :cry:

A half hour later I see another buck cross from the south into our corn field. He starts heading straight east, when he hits the creek he turns north, right past me at 7 yards. I didn't bother trying to stop him, shot him as he walked. He bolted off and didn't make it 70 yards.

Plus one bow doe, from the ground as well. ;)

I have another bow doe only tag, then my son wants to hunt shotgun season for his first time. I'll have an any sex tag for that season, too.
