Went out again Thursday night, and there was plenty of action. Saw four doe, three of which kept coming back. None of them gave me a clear, close range shot. At one point I looked up and saw a ninja doe that snuck right in without making a sound. It was getting dark as I watched her putz around at about 30 yards. There was a lot of brush and I still couldnt get a clear shot. After about 10 minutes of watching her, she re emerged at about 40 yards with a perfect, clear, broadsight shot. It was getting pretty dark, my heart was racing, my bow arm trembling. This was my last opportunity of the night, and I didn't want to miss it, so I let one loose. However, new as I am to bow hunting, 40 yards is way too much for me and I totally air balled it

lol thats awesome! Yeah man 40 yards is a long shot for just about everyone, hell I have never launched one that far, but it's great you were patient and at least didnt wound her. Good luck next time out bud!

I've been going hunting with my dad sence I was 3 now I'm 17 still going everyday I don't have school I love the bow but it's really hard sometimes like last week I had a buck 20 yards broad side and I drew back but my peep sight was messed up and I ended up missing :'( but I'm really patient when I comes to hunting like I said I've been hunting a long time and I only shot my first deer last year. Plus there's not a lot of big ones where I'm from.

I can't wait untill muzzleloader season, that my favorate season. I'll admit it I think the bow is extremly hard to kill a deer with and can be frustrating, I just wish the deer were comming in during the day. Like the last few days we left the woods at like 6:15 and on the trail camera the deer are comming in at 6:30 .
PS I love upstate NY I went to a ranch there and I shot my first animal with the gun and then with back and shot my first with the bow there. And I'm from RI

Yeah I absolutely love hunting with my in-line, I just ordered the TC Encore Endeavor, had to finally retire my CVA Optima after 10 seasons of slaying deer with it. During gun season thats all I use unless were putting on drives, my county is shotgun/muzzleloader only.

Oh yeah, when I run into that problem of nocturnal bucks I usually, depending on the time of year, either make a mock scrape and put doe in estrus on it, or this time of year put buck urine on it. More than likely if he's the dominate buck in the area he's gonna want to meet the other buck making scrapes in his area. Good luck and Go Get Em!

Sometimes it's tough to bring em in during shooting hours, especially since he didnt get that big by being stupid. I'd say wait him out on stand, sooner or later he'll get stupid and hopefully chase a doe right by ya. Otherwise, now is the time to find the doe's and watch carefully who's trailing or pushing them. I've found that during this time of the rut (pre-rut) your going to usually see a lot of younger buck activity, as they go into rut sooner however, my buddy Mike (Sadass) just killed a monster 8 last Thu. pushing does around. So this time of year it's a crap shoot, either continue to put buck piss on his scrapes and hunt them, or start laying down doe piss on them and hunt them. Either way ya def. need to keep the wind in your favor. If he winds you it's pretty much all over for that old fella lol Moral of the story, spend as much time on stand with a good wind, your chances will improve the closer it gets to prime time rut! Go Get Em!

He got it down in Texas...around here in South West Ohio I have an 8 pointer that beds down in my backyard all the time. The news had a 12 pointer running across a major road during rush hour. We are honestly infested. They are everywhere, all year.
