Whitetail Deer Bowhunting Exciting

Have you ever harvested a whitetail deer bowhunting?

Deer Bowhunting

Harvesting a deer bowhunting can be very challenging.

Taking a deer bowhunting can be a very exciting challenge. I made myself a personal goal of harvesting a Pope & Young buck before last deer season. I was able to take a very nice whitetail bow hunting in Illinois but I still have to get him officially scored to see if he will make the book. I’m thinking he will fall just short, but we will see. I have taken quite a few deer bow hunting but since I took that big boy I have got the fever bad. We are planning on filming some great hunts next season and we are pumped. Having to get the big bucks so close before being able to shoot with a bow really gets your adrenalin going. Last year after I harvested that trophy buck deer hunting in Illinois I didn’t go back in the woods without my bow.

Filming whitetail bow hunts can make for some exciting footage.

I think now I will pretty much hunt most of the time with a bow or be behind the camera. I will still hunt with a rifle just not as much. One thing that I have never done that I plan on trying next season is hunting with a muzzle loader. I am currently in the process of shopping around for a deal on a good muzzle loader.

Yesterday I got my PSE Stinger out and shot a few times. I have to get me some new arrows for next year and a new arrow rest. The rest that I have is making a popping noise when I pull it back sometimes. It usually only does it after I have shot it a few times but I can’t have unwanted noises when pulling my bow back. My luck it would do it when I was pulling back on a monster buck of a lifetime. I am already fired up about next season and want to go to the woods right now.

 

Rate Your Deer Season

I hope everyone had a great deer season.

Rate Your Deer Season

rate your deer season

Big bucks like this one make it easy to rate your deer season great.

I think deer season is just about over everywhere. I wanted to get some feedback on how all of you did this year. Did you get that big deer?

If you had to rate your deer season how would you rate it? Mine started off seeing quite a few  in Georgia during bow season, but I just wasn’t seeing any big bucks. I saw several small bucks and a ton of does. I wanted to shoot a doe with my bow but I kept holding off in hopes of getting a shot at a trophy buck that we had on trail camera. But I never saw him. My dad saw him one time just before dark just for a second, and he was gone. As it got closer to the rut I hunted hard and kept thinking I might see some big bucks. I was seeing a lot of nice rubs and scrapes but no big boys.

November 1st rolled around and some friends and I headed out deer hunting to the heart of monster buck country to do some bow hunting in Illinois.

Bow hunting in Illinois can make a deer hunting dreams come true.

Bow hunting in Illinois can make a deer hunting dreams come true.

If you have never been bow hunting in Illinois, I highly recommend it. We arrived on the first of November and were greeted by unseasonably warm temperatures. We hunted very hard for the whole week and saw a lot of whitetails and several smaller bucks chasing does, but the big bucks were laying low. We ended up extending the trip for a couple of days because we knew there was a cold front moving in. On the last morning of our trip I was able to rattle in a very nice 125″ class 10 pointer and was able to put the smack down on him at thirty yards and right then and there I fell in love with bow hunting in Illinois.

So that made my season a great one. While we were in Illinois we got reports from Georgia that the big boys were chasing like crazy and in full rut. By the time we got back home the rut was almost over. So if we hadn’t gone to the mid-west who knows maybe I would have been able to get a shot at the trophy whitetail that we had on trail camera, but then again you never know.

Let me know how you did this year. Did you get that trophy whitetail? I hope you all had a great year. I had one that I won’t soon forget.

Take the poll and let me know how you did.

  1. Poor, didn’t see many deer
  2. Okay, saw a few deer and some small bucks
  3. Good, shot a doe and some smaller bucks
  4. Great, shot a nice buck
  5. Excellent, shot a Pope and Young  or a Boone and Crockett
