Bow Season Opening Day
Well it’s about three weeks until the whitetail bow season opening day here in Kansas and today I went to check one of my trail cameras and put up a stand. I had put out some Big Tine Fortified Deer Blend about a week ago in this honey hole which is one of my favorite bow hunting spots, and couldn’t wait to see what kind of pictures I had gotten. Because when I first put this camera out as I was riding my four wheeler down the edge of the cornfield coming out I saw a huge buck that I was almost certain was a buck we had named “Tall Tine” and I hadn’t seen him since last October 10th, when he disappeared. I was afraid he had caught EHD and died, but sure as the world when I checked my sd card he was back bigger and better than ever, and I got a ton of pictures of many other bucks as well and one really nice non-typical freak nasty buck with three main beams and about 13 to 15 points.
So now I am really pumped up and ready to get after the big boys and bow season opening day can’t get here soon enough.
How about you have you got your stands up and cameras out? How about food plots? If you planted food plots how are they looking? We have had some decent rain here in the mid-west and it is a lot cooler this year than it was last year at this time. Plus last season was terrible with EHD in Kansas and other states but hopefully the cooler weather and rain will help keep that stuff away this year. I was really worried about there being any big bucks this year because I was afraid EHD had just about wiped them off them out, but it looks like this is going to be a great season, fingers crossed.
I have been practicing with my bow daily, and the Mathews Z7 is shooting so sweet and ready to go! We owe it to the deer to make sure we are able to make good clean shots and practice in all types of conditions so we can be confident when it comes time to take a shot. So lets get out there and practice.
Have a great up-coming deer season everyone.
