Tonight I had an encounter with my number one target. Throughout the summer and fall he’s only shown up 3 or 4 days. To say this is an uphill climb is an understatement. As last light was approaching I saw a buck limping through our food plot. The seriousness of his limp told me that I may never see him again. Before he exited the plot he stopped at 75 yards and I released an arrow. Complete whiff and off he went. I’m not sure if there’s a lesson to be learned here but it sure feels horrible for several reasons. Starting on Friday I’ll be back in his core area for a few days trying to close this chapter. #bowhunting #deerhunting #archery #kansas #kansashunting #deer #hunting #trailcam
First snowfall on a Whitetail Buck with a bunch of sticker-points in hardwoods. Showing you two views so you can see all of his points and the “extras” that aren’t all visible in the head-on shot.
My wife has put some great bucks down! Here is a opening day memory that we won’t forget. Mount them up because when they are on the wall the story lasts forever!!

Let me tell you about my first year of archery deer hunting. The ups and downs of my season will haunt me. My mistakes from being a total novice are so frustrating. I didnt have a range finder and over shot my first deer I ever drew my bow on. Watching that arrow soar over that doe's back was such a let down. The fact that I was able to scout public land on my own and set myself up for success was a feeling of satisfaction all on it's own. It is such an indescribable feeling of being 5 yards from a deer that has absolutely no clue you are there. It's such a thrill. I spent so many hours in the woods just listening to the wind blow through the trees and squirrels going crazy lol I would just close my eyes and be so thankful for the opportunity to be there. I learned that the smallest ruffle of your jacket will alert that animal. I learned it's better to draw your bow than to just let the deer pass being afraid you're going to spook it. I learned thay even with the best arrow placement you're not always going to be able to find that deer. The excitement of placing that arrow where it needed to go and just shaking from excitement... only to be let down several hours after searching in the 37 degree rain. The ups and downs of archery is what makes it such a challenge. The pure love for the outdoors far outweighs the downs... I'll be back next year.

Good day out deer tracking! Had a couple of opportunities to get some venison but couldn’t connect. Including this young doe who got lucky because I decided a picture was better than food. #HuntVA
Trail cam pics from last season. Let em go! Let em grow! You can’t kill a big buck if you keep shooting scrub bucks. I had a chance at killing that weird racked buck squaring off with the much bigger buck, but decided not to. The trail cameras are going to be up all winter up at deer camp so let’s hope for new pics all winter/spring. There’s very little time to seal the deal left for me this season. I’m leaving the muzzleloader in the case this weekend and going out with the Mathews. Time to let the air out of one of them!!!! Let’s go!!! #deer #deerhunting #winter #fall #whitetail #fish #fishing #outdoors #nature #followme #iloveny #saltlife #naturephotography #trailcam
Cool little series of this late season scraper still out lookin for love! I’ve had this camera strapped to the same tree since October 5th and it’s taken thousands of photos and this is the first I’ve seen of his pretty face! You never know what late season may bring!
A successful sit in the deer stand this afternoon. First time I've hunted in a month due to injuring my back. Deer number 3 for me this year so far! #deer #deerhunting #bowhunting
