Just had a great few days up in north Missouri. We had a bit of a cold snap this last week and it really seemed to have the deer moving where I was. They are all over the acorns right now. The best advice I can give you for now is to find a grove of oaks and get ready! As always, white oaks seem to be the tree of choice, but if you find a tree with a good mast of acorns, stay close!
I was all set to video, but this doe came sneaking in from behind. She made it all the way in to 20yrds before I heard her. The wind was swirling on me and just as I got turned around she seemed to wind me. She trotted a few steps away out to about 25yrds. I knew it was now or never, so I let the arrow fly. She was quartering away perfectly and my arrow caught the heart and at least one lung. I saw her go down about 65 yrds away from where I shot her. That was the 4th deer I had seen that evening, so needless to say, it was a great hunt!
I’ve got video I’m putting together of a really nice 11pt that came right under my stand. Stay tuned …
In the meantime – best of luck!
