Best new archery/bowhunting product at the Madison Deer and Turkey Expo? #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Here’s my vote, at least among all the exhibitors I encountered:

http://buckrubarchery.com/magnedrop/5210097

This little gizmo looks like a real gem.
The new owner of the patent (if I understood him correctly), spent a few minutes demonstrating it to me, and I walked away VERY impressed.

If you’re in the market for a dropaway rest, you really should check out this one, IMO.

Who has experienced a deer hiding from another hunter, or caught a deer pulling a fast one over on yourself. They can be slick, and some of it may even sound unbelievable. Share your stories.

Once, I heard a deer come into a patch of bulrush to bed just before first light. I was pretty sure it was the dominant buck in the area that I was after. A few hours later a group of bird hunters drove the bulrush with their dogs. The buck took a few leaps out of there, and into a thorn thicket just a few yards to my left. I could only make out his right antler sticking out past his ear. He stood motionless as the hunters passed by, 10-20 yards away, yelling at the dogs. One dog was barking at a pheasant in the top of the cedar to my right, and never picked up on the deer. After they left, the buck walked up through the thicket, and back into the bulrush.

While stillhunting through knee high grass during gun season, I saw antlers moving along the top of the grass about 10yds away, going in the opposite direction. He must have been crawling. I picked the gun up as he went behind a chest high clump of briers, and waited for him to come out the other side…and waited…and waited…, never to see him again. Only explanation I could come up with was he turned 90* and kept that brush between us as he crawled off.

What do you hunt deer with more often – a stand or a blind? #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

I am a new bow hunter, and due to surgery I had to hunt from blinds all season.

I was able to buy both a climber and a hang on for next season, and will leave both of my blinds where they are.

Wha do you deer hunt from more often? A ladderstand, climber, hang on, or from a blind?

Evolution of deer hunting…am I getting old? #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Guys,
Don’t get me wrong, I still like to consider myself a young gun. At 26, I hope I have many more seasons left in the woods. I’m well past the stage of brown and down (just not my thing but to each his own). I’m to the stage of killing does for the freezer but will let a small buck walk. I’d rather eat tag soup than kill a 1.5 year old…again, to each his own. So this year I find out a cousin of mine is getting into hunting at 17. I have a farm I hunt my uncle owns (not his dad). Come to find out, he’s scouted the place and put up trail cameras next to my stand. He put them there because he figured the stand was there for a reason…which is true. So here’s the mental kicker. 5 years ago, that would have rubbed me the wrong way. Do I want him in my stand when I go to hunt there?…not particularly but heck, how can you fault a guy for taking it upon himself to learn to hunt? Furthermore, he is closer and would probably get more use out of the place than I can when I make time to head down to KY. At this juncture, I’m just trying to help him learn and teach him what I know. Things are changing for me too as I went from private in KY to all public in Ohio when I moved. Somehow, I am looking forward to the challenge of public more than the "sure bet" of private. Do you guys remember when it was more about the challenge than bone on the wall? I feel like that how things are turning for me and if I can get someone else interested in it then all the better. Just a rainy day thought…and if you are interested in hitting Ohio public land, let me know…its always more fun when you have a hunting buddy.

deer cart for very long walk an kill.

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

OK i have did a couple of searches already on game carts and just not sold on any of them 100% I have a $ 50 i go off amazon. I think it is a guide gear. Well some of the public land i hunt does allow retrieval of game with atv’s and they want allow you to cut it up and carry it out. You can gut it but not debone it. Now I have realized that the cart i have will not cut the mustard so to speak. I am looking for a new one. The Area I am hunting is flat for the most part with swamps and sloughs everywhere and thickets to move around. It doesn’t snow and there is not always leaves on the ground, so not really looking into the sled option. Sometimes you have to go over small tress as well.

I hunt by myself 90% of the time. I helped a guy last week get his deer from the woods of were I am hunting, which is 3 miles from the designated ATV trail. We used his cart which is pretty heavy duty and it took us 4 hours to cover the 3 miles back to the atv trail. These deer a 250+lbs. It takes a hour to walk there just to hunt. So far I see everyone like the cabelas game cart. I see the Hawk game cart looks tempting. Kill shoot has a tempting looking cart, but nothing to me says this is the one that will do the job for me. So after some research I still do not have a answer for myself.

tracking wounded deer

______________________________ __________
Good subject for this time of the year…

TRACKING WOUNDED DEER

Less than a minute has elapsed since you’ve shot one of the biggest bucks you have ever seen. It happened so fast it’s hard to believe. What you do now may determine whether or not you’ll recover your buck.

Your first impulse is to bail out of your treestand and take off after him. Depending upon your arrow placement, this could be a big mistake. If a deer is not hit well you could spook him and make recovery next to impossible.

Knowing where the animal is hit makes a difference in how you track him. For this reason, a bowhunter should use brightly colored fletching, such as orange or red.

The chest of the deer contains the lungs and the heart which, when hit, produce the quickest kill. The lungs are easily reached by an arrow, protected only by vulnerable rib bones. The heart is low in the body and somewhat protected by the deer’s leg bone.

The following describes types of hits and how you should track for each.

* A lung-shot deer will run hard 50 to 65 yards. After that he will
usually walk until he falls. The blood will sometimes have tiny bubbles in it. This blood trail usually gets better as you track the deer. However, if the deer is hit high in the lungs, the blood trail may sometimes become light and even disappear completely. The deer could be "filling up" inside with blood, showing very little external bleeding. The hair from the lung area is coarse and brown with black tips. The deer will usually go down in less than 125 yards. Give the deer 30 minutes before tracking.

* A heart-shot deer will sometimes jump wildly when hit. The blood trail may be sparse for the first 20 yards or so. A heart shot deer may track as much as a quarter of a mile, depending on what part of the heart is damaged. The usual is less than 125 yards. The hair from this shot will be long brown or grayish guard hairs. Again, a 30 minute wait is advised. But, if while trailing you find where he has bedded back off and wait an hour before taking up the trail again.

* A liver-shot deer. The liver lies against the diaphragm in the
approximate center of the deer. It is a definite killing shot. The blood trail will be decent to follow and the deer should bed down and die within 200 yards, if not pushed. A one-hour wait is best. The hair from the liver area is brownish gray and much shorter than the hair from the lung area. If you push the deer out of his bed, back off and wait another hour.

* A gut-shot deer is probably the most difficult to recover because of the poor blood trail and the hunter’s impatience to wait him out. A lot of bowhunters want to hurry up and find the deer. Since the liver and stomach are close together, it is possible that the deer will go down and die quickly if the shot also penetrates the liver. If the deer is dead in an hour, he will still be dead in 4 hours. Have patience, he will not go anywhere. Wait him out for at least 4 hours. Wait overnight if the deer is
shot in the evening.

When a deer is shot in the stomach area, he will usually take several short jumps and commence walking or running. His back will usually hunch up and his legs will be spread wide. The hair from this wound is brownish gray and short. The lower the shot is on the animal, the lighter colored the hair will be. The blood trail is usually poor with small pieces of ingested material (stomach contents). If the intestines are punctured there will be green slimy material or feces Take your bow with you because a second shot might be required.

* A spine-shot deer will usually drop in his tracks or hobble off. Either way, a second shot will probably be required to finish off the deer. If a spine-shot deer hobbles off, wait a half-hour and track slowly and quietly. Look for the deer bedded down.

* A neck-shot deer will either die in 100 yards or he will recover from the wound. The lower portion of the neck contains the windpipe, neck bone (spine), and carotid (jugular) arteries. If the arteries are hit, the deer will run hard and drop in less than 100 yards. The blood trail will be easy to follow. A shot above the neck bone will give you a good blood trail for about 150 to 200 yards before quitting. The deer will more than likely recover to be hunted again.

* A hip-shot deer. A large artery (femoral) runs down the inside of each deer leg. This artery is protected from the side by the leg bones. The femoral artery is most often severed from the rear or at an angle. If this artery is cut, the bleeding will be profuse and the deer will usually be found in less than 100 yards. The ham of a deer is also rich in veins with a lot of blood. A hip-shot deer should be tracked immediately. Track him slowly and quietly to keep him moving (walking). If you jump him and he runs, back off for a few minutes then continue trailing. You want him to walk, not run. A walking deer is easier to trail.

* An artery-shot deer will almost always go down in less than 100 yards. The aortic artery runs just under the backbone from heart to hips, where it branches to become the femoral arteries. The heart also pumps blood to the brain through the carotid (jugular) arteries.

Sever any of these arteries and you’ve got yourself a deer. There is one catch, these arteries are tough. It takes a sharp broadhead to cut through them. A dull broadhead will just push them aside. Keep your broadheads sharp! Give the deer half an hour before tracking.
GENERAL TRACKING TIPS

* After shooting the deer, stay in your stand and be quiet for the
recommended time. A noise might push your deer away. He could be bedded down less than 100 yards away.

* I have found it very helpful to tie a piece of pink surveyor ribbon around my stand tree at eye level from where I shot. After noting several terrain features near where the deer was standing and where it ran too, I tie on the ribbon before coming down. From the ground looking back up to the ribbon, I can get a better visual for locating exactly where the deer was and went.

* Before beginning the tracking, mark where you shot the deer with a piece of white toilet paper hung on a branch.

* Mark the trail periodically with more toilet paper as you track. This will give you a line on the deer’s travel.

* When you find the arrow, check for hair, tallow, blood, etc. This will give you a good clue on how to track. Example: Tallow and slime means you should wait 4 hours.

* Check for blood carefully, walking off to the side of the run.

* Look for blood on trees, saplings, and leaves that are about the same height as the wound. Blood will sometimes rub off the body.

* If tracking as a group, spread out a little. Keep noise to a minimum. In tracking, sometimes "too many cooks can spoil the stew." It would be better if only 2 or 3 people tracked the deer. If the blood trail runs out, you can always get more help to search for the deer

* While tracking a deer that you have shot and you jump a deer and it flags its tail, it’s probably not your deer. A wounded deer will very seldom "flag." BUT – check it out anyway.

* Gut-shot deer have a habit of going to water. If you lose a gut-shot deer’s trail, check out the water holes in the area. He could be down by one.

* Tracking at night presents special problems with visibility. The blood and the deer will both be hard to see. A Coleman gas lantern will help a lot in both cases. If the deer is not hit well, and no rain is forecast, wait until morning. If he is dead in 10 minutes or 4 hours, he will still be dead in the morning.

* Take a compass bearing to where you last saw the deer, and another one to where you last heard any noise from it’s flight. It might prove very helpful.

* It helps to have someone who did not shoot the deer to help with the blood trial. Many an experienced hunter in his excitement misses things.

* Stay off of the blood trail, and use a small piece of tolled paper to mark each spot

* Get down on your hands and knees when a blood trail is hard to see it helps. From this angle while night tracking you can shine the light in the direction of travel and often see blood that does not show when standing over it.

* Look at the bottom of leaves on branches at deer body height. Sometimes as the branch slides along the body of a deer it is the under side of the leaf that picks up the blood.

* You will often find a gut shot deer or liver shot deer dead in the water not just beside it. so look for an ear or the side of the deer in deeper water too.

* Some shots that look good may be one lung or a poor liver hit because of the angle. These deer can take several hours to die. Be careful about pushing them to soon, since they will rarely leave much blood sign if they are jumped when bedded.

* Look ahead as you blood trail for deer parts and movement. Your deer may still be alive and you might be able to get a second shot or back off with out spooking it.

* Look for disturbed leaves and broken twigs as well as for the blood sign on hard to follow blood trails.

* It is often hard to follow a blood trail in grass. It seems that the blood can fall all the way to the ground without hitting a single blade of grass.

* Look for clusters of ants, flies and daddy longlegs. You can find small drops of blood because these bugs are feeding on it.

* Often times when the blood trail seems to end you will find the animal off to one side and not in the same direction of travel.

* Listen for birds like magpies, jays, and crows. Sometimes they make a ruckus where the animal lies dead.

* Be persistent!

* A dog can often prove very useful if legal. Even your house pet. They can see with their nose what we can not see with our eyes.

* Use your nose. sometimes you can smell a deer you can’t see. A gut shot is even more likely to have a smell.

* When trailing at night use a couple of the Chem Lights that you can get at WalMart for less than a buck. You don’t use these as lights to see blood, but they are hung on limbs at the last blood found. That way nobody has to stand on the last blood and everyone can easily see where the last blood found is at.

remember these are only suggestions that should be considered …..remember NOTHING IS IN CONCRETE WHEN DEER HUNTING.

How long do you age deer meat?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

I have never aged my meat more than a day or two. I was at supper with a guy last week who began to tell me about aging in a refrigerator (after de bone) for 10 days to 3 weeks. He went on to say the meat is super tender. I have struggled with getting meat real tender.

Do any of you age that long? How would you tell if the meat was not good?
