Deer Contest

Post by PineywoodsBow on Thu Sep 11, 2014 10:32 pm

First topic message reminder :

Anybody thought about doing a deer contest for this forum? I'm in a few on other forums and its alot of fun. It might be a little late to organize for this year, or maybe not if enough are interested. 50 points for does and spikes, bucks are based on scored inches of bone. Have to post up two pictures of you and the deer with bow, and the deer must be taken on public land. If enough are interested we can even think about forming teams. Thoughts?

Jason

If you guys get 2 more that want to get in I will make the third for the 4th team. If not I will be happy to throw in a hat and shirt for the winners. Either way.

Like I stated before, I will be at a disadvantage because I don't hunt public much. Counting on my team to pull us through. I will give it my best shot though

Well I came close yesterday. Had two does at 15 yards, but they busted me when I was going for my bow. I've hunted 3 straight days, 5 more to go.....

Early freezer meat helps the off season itch. That doe was right under me, about 3yds from my tree.
PineywoodsBow, I hope to see one of them doe in a pic with, a bow & keys.

Way to go teammate! I've got a fishing trip coming up here, but I also have a heavy oak drop scouted, the grounds covered with deer poop. Kind of waiting on the best wind for a few of my better spots, I'll be working on some video for my Public Pope and Young series, but need a few doe for the freezer too, and have been working on another public scouting doe hunting video as well, so I won't be holding fire on the gals this year like I usually do.

Post by SlowBow on Fri Oct 10, 2014 7:20 pm

Sorry guys, I can't seem to put the fishing rods down this year, Just had some time off and spent it in Georgia fishing for stripers on topwater plugs in Lake Lanier. What a flipping blast. But I'm sure thats not what you want to hear from your teammate. It just seems to rain every time I have a day off to hunt. I ran up to the private land yesterday after work, mainly because I have about an hour to hunt after work, and it's a five minute walk to my stand. This big full moon has them moving about 2 seconds before the end of legal light, and I managed to get busted by two big does coming in just as I hit the ground and turned on my headlamp. Oh well. Off tomorrow, but again, the rain, and opening day of duck here. So maybe not any bowhunting for me. But do not fear, I have 17 days off during the rut, between the full and dark moon in November, and have some prime locations scouted, that I have not set foot in since before the season opened to check shooting lanes. Unless someone else has discovered and hunted them, they will be undisturbed giving me the advantage. I may try to get out to some oak drops and put a doe down here in the next week or two, so hang in there. I'll do my best to put some points on the board for us between now and Thanksgiving, good luck to everyone!

Hey teammates, I managed to put a small one in the freezer last Monday evening-still having issues posting on the contest thread, But I'm off early in the morning for 10-14 days hunting some NF land. Hopefully they are moving good while I'm there. Good luck to all and I will check in when I get back to see what progress everyone has had.

Was out of town for the opener here in north bama, October 15th, but went out to my hunting club this morning. Didn't see anything but squirrels. Going Saturday and Sunday afternoon to some public land in my area. Hope to get my first kill on public land and get some points for my team

This will be my spot for tomorrow afternoon, if no one beats me to it. Went out there a month ago and scouted around. It is roughly 1.1 miles in so I hope no one wants to walk that far. But it is an easy walk so I will find out tomorrow.

Well teammates, sorry I wasn't much help. After hurting my back two days into our rut, and being unable to hunt, the focus turned to hunting our private land we have permission on with the shotgun to put meat in the freezer.

Thanks, but no need to send anything. Donate it or save it for the next contest. A little competition made things a bit more exciting each time a deer came close. Just wish they would have presented a shot. Count me in for next contest. Maybe if I send the pic to Dave's email he can post it.
