Way too much fun to have the family along for the ride!Shot this buck on November 4th at 3:30 in the afternoon. Only my second day of hunting in Wisconsin. After being gone for 11 days elk hunting in Wyoming I didn’t push to hunt too much at home. Trying to keep the home front happy.
Very cool, glad he connected.My 14 year old got his best buck last night. Normally a dedicated bowhunter, with the tough season we’ve had, he has been rifle hunting more. We’re very selective about what we shoot on our property, and he had passed several others. I actually passed this guy on October 23, and was very happy my boy got the opportunity. It’s a pretty good deer around here View attachment 37751
I reached out to all my buddies nobody did any good during the IL firearm season. I shot a smaller 9 pointer I had passed up during the archery season. My sister jumped him up and he ended up running by me so I shot him on the run. Thought he was bigger.I have spent a lot of time in the woods to get the three bucks I have gotten. I think I averaged 23 sits/shooter. Its been a grind but proven to be worth it. I still have one buck tag to fill here at home. I'm going to hit the ground this weekend and hunt for pigs/bucks and hopefully get a good buck in the swamp and give him a free boat ride....lol We have 4 deer in the freezer and need about 2 more to get us through until next year.
The commitment it takes to kill big deer is always what impresses me the most.I killed the deer at 12:25 after sitting in my lone wolf assault hand climber and not seeing any deer all morning. I almost always do all day sits during gun season. It has paid off a couple times in my lifetime. Him and 4 other bucks were having a lovers quarrel over a doe....lol
