Hoping to get out for 2 hours before dark this evening after the storm rolls through. Target 10 pt was there at dusk on Thursday working a scrape. I love hunting dark dreary days, so feeling good about tonight.
My buddy texted me he saw a nice one come off some public I have never hunted so I decided to go still hunt/ scout it with my bow. On the way I drove by 5 doe on my property, a doe being chased by a 4 point in property I hunt, and a 3 or 4 year old 8 point that wanted in on the action. All that at 4:15. Only saw 3 doe during my scouting.
Nice evening I saw a flock of gobblers 2 sub-legal bucks and a pretty nice 8 I couldn't get a shot on...Also had a coyote come in stalking one of the small bucks I finally got him to stop at a spot where I had to guess the distance and I guessed wrong and used the wrong pin.....Just skimmed his back nothing but a puff of fur on the ground and no blood
Shot this 9 point at 6:30. Saw him in the woods and grunted him out to my food plot. Didn't get a pass thru at 32 yards, but it was a good double lung and recovered him at around 75 yards. It was a good nite.
