Re: 2011/2012 crossbow harvest comment thread

Thanks guys . . . it was nice to tag out early, but I will really miss watching leaves change and fall, animals preparing for winter, and the cool chill on my neck, but I just couldn't let the 8 walk even though I know at least one bigger buck roaming the woods. I can now spend some quality time with the family and maybe, just maybe fight the steelhead crowds in Erie.

There is no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people asking questions.

Got my first doe with a crossbow Sat. evening.Parker Tornado with red hot arrows and broadheads. Deer traveled 10 yards and that was it. She just folded up. Only downside I was unable to recover my arrow. I was shooting up hill from a ground blind and the arrow past thru and just kept goin.

Re: 2011/2012 crossbow harvest comment thread

Got my first crossbow buck today. My largest buck to date. It was a 7 point. Got a complete pass thru. Found the bolt covered in blood and hair. Heard the buck crash. He went about 100 yards. Got to love the Columbus Day! This is my earliest date to be done buck hunting for me. Now I gotta focus on getting my 13 year old a deer. We love early muzzleloader season.

Re: 2011/2012 crossbow harvest comment thread

Congrats to all making these harvests...don't forget to enter the HPA buck pool with your pictures. Anyone who has pics and just does not know how to post em on-line contact any Mod for help...WE LOVE PICS!!!

One thing I am noticing in both the stories and pics is that these shots (even youth shots) are close range, very accurate, and quick to kill and that ladies and gentlemen is what it all about to me.

CONGRATS AND CONTINUED SUCCESS to us crossbowers!! The GOOD NEWS to those that haven't scored yet, It only gets better right up til the last minute of the last day of the season. Enjoy those days, burn a vaca day or two, (or 5 in my case), best show on earth!!

It only takes a second to change your season...
