Man what a year. He killed a 130 twelve point with a muzzy. Then I killed a 165 out of this stand.

He had a basketball game at 8 but I have him the choice to hunt or play and he wanted to hunt. I wasn’t really prepared this morning cause it was the first time I had him in this stand. It set up a little funky so it took time.

Around 7:15 I heard something behind us. I rattled in a nice young 10 point. He came from the wrong direction and ended up winding us. Then a few minutes later a small spoke came through but not in his shooting lane. He had one window he could shoot through because he is unsure in a stand and doesn’t feel comfortable turning to adjust.

A half out later this guy came in. He was really non chalant and was just going slow and feeding. He hit his shooting lane and stopped and fed facing is. As they do when they feed he started to turn. He got mostly broadside and I asked if he could make the shot and he said he could. It was cold and he was bundle up so I had to help him pull back. The deer was at 19 yards so I told him to put his 20 pin on the heart. He ended up putting a great shot on him. The arrow buried to the fletching and the fell all the way through 5 steps later. He is shooting a 75 grains muzzy. We had great blood deer only went 80 yards. I was shocked at the penetration with shooting 35lbs.

Long story, sorry.
Well I didn’t get a chance to hunt opening weekend but I went to a place in the National Forest that I’ve hunted for 2 years. When I got there yesterday some dipstick had tied a piece of purple no hunting tape (looked like police line tape) to some saplings on the tree I always climb and tore the gate down to ride a 4 wheeler into the area which is illegal. Well I went ahead and hunted the spot anyway because I had seen some nice bucks last year but I didn’t see anything. I figured that if someone was hunting the spot they might have messed it up so I went out early to see if I could find a different place to hunt but didn’t have much luck in the time I had so I went back to "my tree".
Last night I noticed that when I sat down or stood up my seat would make a kind of rubbing noise so I just figured I’d see if I could fix it. So I grab my wind check powder and put it on the rail behind the seat back but it didn’t work. Well I’m up in the stand messing around with the seat not paying attention and 3 doe walk in on me at 30 yards.
So I stand up and grab my bow and thankfully the seat didn’t spook them. While I’m standing there shaking like I’m about to shoot a trophy buck I realize that the deer are about to walk straight down wind of me. Well I pick out the biggest of the 3 and wait to get a clear shot. While I’m waiting for a shot the 2 smaller ones walk directly down wind of me and keep going and the one I wanna shoot is just standing behind a tree. So I’m standing there praying that she will give me a clear shot and she finally walks into a clearing at 20 yards. So I draw back and try to settle my pins and she’s walking out of the open lane. Well I did the Ole tv show grunt and she stops so I let the arrow fly. I watch as it flies right below her neck and she bolts so now I’m cussing myself for blowing such a nice shot opportunity. Well I figured what the hell and hit the fawn bleat a couple of times. The one I wanted to kill didn’t come back but the 2 littler ones came running back right in a clearing at 15 yards. When they finally quit jumping around I pick the one standing perfectly broadside and let another arrow fly. It hits her perfectly and she jumps then just stands there while the other one watches. The one I shot starts to run and hits the ground flopping and the other one is still standing there watching. When the one I shot stops kicking around I start to climb down and run the other little doe off. Well when I get down I figured I’d get my arrows then the dead deer. Well I get the first arrow that I thought I missed with and there’s some blood on the fletching. Well I started looking where she was standing and there was blood everywhere. So now I kinda feel bad about shooting 2 deer. The first one I shot at didn’t run but maybe 20 yards and one went down right in front of me.
The first shot was too far left and I thought it sailed directly under her neck but it had actually cut her throat directly in front of the kill zone. I guess in the excitement of getting my first bow kill I didn’t anchor well and pulled the shot left.
I would post pics but I didn’t get any because it was so hot I was rushing to get them both in the freezer.
On one hand I’m extatic about finally getting a bow kill but on the other I kinda feel bad for killing 2 doe at one time.

Coyote howler while hunting deer

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

I happened to be watching some outdoors channel yesterday and this guy had what I thought was a good suggestion for getting out of your stand while deer were near. He suggested taking a coyote howler with you and if the deer are in a position where they would bust you as you were leaving, give the call a few howls and it’ll chase the deer away, allowing you to get out of the field unnoticed. Has anyone ever used this technique? I’m curious as to whether it really works or not.

Got deer? Cougars could help control herds, study says

Yeah, hunting wouldn’t work here. Let’s introduce a top of the food chain predator. It worked well with wolves in Minnesota.

Got deer? Cougars could help control herds, study says

By Cristina Corbin Published August 11, 2016

Big cats are the new big idea for reducing the deer population in the Northeast, where growing numbers of bucks and does wander through backyards and onto roads — where they pose a danger to themselves and humans.

A group of scientists is calling for re-introducing cougars into states like New York and New Jersey in an attempt to lower the exploding whitetail deer population. They say the 220-pound predators are a natural solution to a problem that causes 1.2 milllion car accidents per year, including 200 fatalities.

"Recolonization by large carnivores could provide an efficient solution to the problem of deer overabundance,” wrote study authors Laura Prugh, a wildlife scientist at the University of Washington; Sophie Gilbert, a wildlife ecologist at the University of Idaho and several colleagues.
The study, published in the journal Conservation Letters, argues the region could see fewer fatalities and save $ 2.13 billion over the course of 30 years if the prowling beasts were reintroduced into the wild.

While the authors acknowledge "large carnivore recolonization" could lead to attacks on humans, pets and livestock, the number of lives lost would be far less than the number of lives saved.

The eastern cougar was last seen in Maine in 1938, but the cats the study refers to are also known in other regions by names including catamount, panther, puma and mountain lion. The cats have been seen as far north as the Canadian Yukon and as far south as the Andes mountains of South America.

It’s not the first time scientists have thought way out of the box in an effort to cull the hoofed herds. Several locales, including New York communities of Ithaca, Staten Island and East Hampton, have spent taxpayer funds to tranquilize and sterilize deer.

Auto accidents attributed to deer also are blamed for $ 1.66 billion in damages and 29,000 injuries to people, making them the "most dangerous large mammal in North America to humans," according to the report.

The study asserts that a single cougar may kill 259 deer over a six-year lifespan.

The study, published last month, cites South Dakota — where the giant cats were imported — as a success story, noting their presence has dramatically reduced the number of deer-vehicle collisions.

The scientists argue that the Garden State, for instance, could save $ 2.4 million and avoid 24 injuries caused by deer-vehicle accidents annually. In New York, some $ 218 million could be saved each year and roughly 2,188 inuries and 16 deaths could be avoided if cougars prowled the land, they estimate.

The authors’ methodical approach analyzed certain factors, like starting deer density and final deer density. It also included projections for 17 other states, such as Maine, Missouri, Ohio, South Carolina and Wisconsin.

The idea of reintroducing cougars was roundly criticized Wednesday by one state official in New Jersey.

"It doesn’t have a leg to stand on," Larry Hajna, a spokesman for the state’s Department for Environmental Protection, said of the recommendation.

"We’re too densely populated," Hajna told FoxNews.com. "It makes absolutely no sense to introduce a top-line predator with so many people packed into a tight area."

The areas where deer are most problematic, Hajna noted, are places near homes with children and pets.

"I don’t understand the logic whatsoever. Cougars have been known to attack people," he said. "It seems the authors are sitting in an ivory tower out West."

In New Jersey, Hajna urged people to stop feeding the deers’ voracious appetites and advocated for greater use of what he called the community-based deer management program, which allows for hunters with specific training qualifications to kill more deer in certain areas.

"It takes some political will on the part of towns to implement this program," he said.

What Will This Deer Look Like This Year?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

In late December of 2015 I spotted a new buck that I had not seen up to that point. He was a fairly good size deer and I would’ve been happy to shoot him with a bow in the after Christmas buck bow season in WMU (wildlife management unit, not sure if every state calls regions by that name) 2B in Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, I was not able to shoot him last deer season, and I have not seen him in the first few days of trail camera pictures this year, but I am hoping he survived the winter since the area in which I saw him does not see too much bow pressure, normally only a few cars on the roads during gun season in late November/early December. Below is a picture of him I got last hunting season, and I am wondering what you think he would score, what his approximate age is, and if you think he would be any bigger this year.

Here are the photos:

Thank you for taking the time to help me out,
