[QUOTE=chonkie;1054442]Had a chance at a doe on Christmas day, unfortunately I was not prepared. Last time shooting my AR I was using my turrets to basically just check them out, I don't really need to adjust the turret when shooting from 100yds then going to 200yds, can easily adjust holdover but I wanted to check them out anyways. Well I forgot to reset the turret when I took it hunting, 50-60yd shot went clear over her. Got two more weeks to try again.[/

Funny how seasons go based on geographic locations. In Wisconsin our gun season is the week of Thanksgiving.
A few special doe hunts amd muzzle loader but one week for gun/rifle.
No does allowed this year where im at. So of course thats all we saw

I didn't have any time to get out hunting this year. I did manage to get out on to the ice with my boys on the new years weekend.

Not to be dense - what are the 2 on top? The only thing I've seen like that are Ling cod.

Not a dense question at all, the two on top are Burbot, everyone around here call them ling. They're a fresh water relative of the lingcod.

What's even more interesting is that these two weeks are a new special late season, certain counties only, although there are many counties. Restricted to anterless and unbranched antlered deer.

My cat is a straight up killer. She has 5 confirmed kills under her belt, probably more that I don't know about.

Hey Johnny, here's a pic from the stand on a cold foggy morning for you to live vicariously. Just imagine yourself in the stand, feet a little cold, nose a little runny, and the anticipation running through you. Then imagine not seeing a damn thing all day.

P.s. Also have to imagine your hunting buddy passing out and snoring next to you. Some people just can't handle a late night hog hunt then the early morning hunt.

Ok I'm late to the party 'cause I haven't been on here for a long time but I'll tell the story.

I hunt public land in north central Alabama. On Dec. 26th I was 25' up a pine tree in my climbing stand with my bow. I was on the bottom edge of a hillside, 3 year old clearcut. I had a thin funnel of hardwoods behind me continuing down the hill to a creek. From where I was the hardwoods were maybe 40 yds to the creek and going up the hill in front of me the clearcut ran about 125 yds to the ridge top. I feel really exposed in a situation like that, especially being at the bottom of the hill on a clearcut, so I prefer to turn my climber around to the back of the tree so I have a little more cover, leaving it at a slight angle so I can still shoot back to my left (I'm right handed). I tend to stand a lot rather than sit. Every so often I will scan the hardwoods because I know they come up through there sometimes to a trail entering the clearcut about 30 yds to my left. There are actually numerous trails through there but most are in the cc. So I'm scanning the hardwoods and as I turn back towards the cc I see that there is a deer right there in front of me! I stop mid turn to turn back and get my bow out of it's holder and as I'm doing so I realize the deer was a buck. I've never really had buck fever too bad before but it's different when they sneak up on me like that. This deer was at 30 yds when I first knew he was there. So I get my bow and turn back around and that's when I first understand what's in front of me, ... and I lost my mind. I'm terrible at scoring deer so I won't try but I can tell you as he slowly walked broadside to me that I saw 4 bladed antlers on his right side and I know I saw at least 3 bladed antlers on his left side but I'm almost certain there was a 4th. I never noticed the brow tines, I was shaking so badly I'm not really sure how I stayed in the tree. When I saw him my first thought was "30 yds" but I didn't range him and by this time he was at my 11:00. I drew my bow but didn't shoot. There was some little something covering his vitals. In hindsight this was a mistake because I'm pretty sure it was just some sage grass and it was up close to his body. I'm sure it would not have altered the shot. Meanwhile I was second guessing the range because I had just eyeballed it. I held at full draw as he slowly walked and every time he would stop (he was not in any hurry) I would not have a shot. I'd been holding too long at full draw so when he passed behind a dead tree I let off and took the opportunity to put the range finder on him, ... guess what, 30 yds. He'd been walking broadside the entire way and when he got to my 2 o'clock he turned quartering away in the open. I did not want him going any farther so I drew with some difficulty because I was fatigued from holding so long before, put my 30 yd pin on him and let loose. My heart sunk, he skipped about 5 yds and stopped and slowly walked away stopping from time to time. It was obvious based on his reaction that I had missed. I tried to no avail to turn him back with a grunt call which he completely ignored. At one point when he was probably 50 yds away I thought I saw him bed down but he didn't he just stood still in that spot for a little bit. Out of desperation I tried to hit some rattling horns but as soon as I did that he took off up the hill and out of sight. I was certain I missed so there was no reason to get down so I stayed in the stand for another 1 1/2 hours. I finally got down and made my way to where I had shot to find my arrow. I searched for about an hour and could not find it and then made another mistake, ... I gave up and headed out.

2 days later I was in another tree not far from there and the whole thing was nagging me so I got down around midday and went back to look for my arrow. I found it. So when I shot at the deer he was showing me his right side, quartering away at roughly my 2 o'clock. I found my arrow lying on top of the ground 5 yds to the left of where I had shot, turned 180* with the broadhead pointing back toward the tree it was shot from. It had dried blood and white hair on it and the shaft was busted right below where the fletchings would be (never did find the fletchings). I was sick. There was not a drop of blood anywhere around where I had shot but when I saw the arrow I started again trying to track from the place I had shot him. I made my way to the spot where I had thought he was bedding down and found a puddle of dried blood the size of a dinner plate. I never found another drop of blood and I never found the deer and I won't decide again that I missed a deer based on his reaction and I won't leave without my arrow again.

Deer are amazingly tough animals and I feel like the chances are good that he survived and hopefully recovered. The white hair tells me I hit him low and the small amount of blood gives me hope that maybe I'll get another crack at him in the future. I'm pretty sure the primary problem was buck fever. I also think that because he had been broadside the whole time until the very last that I took a broadside shot rather than a quartering away shot. I think I hit him low just behind his foreleg. I'll be thinking about that one for a long time.
