A few days ago while sitting in the pants down stand, I noticed that the deer had adjusted their travel path this year. All though numerous deer have been taken from this stand over the years, I decided a move of 50 yards was in order.

Slightly down the bluff on a flat bench about 40 yards wide a likely tree held my interest.

Over the lunch hour that day I moved the ladder to an Elm with a branched trunk , right at the hunters height.

it's been a weird weather year. Like all across the country, there is no normal. We had September weather in August and August weather in September. I have been in the stand everyday except when torrential rain and 90 degree temps kept me in bed on in my office.

But today it was a real fall morning. The Temp was 33F when I left the yurt and the wind was slight and out of the west. I headed to the relocated stand and gleefully drank a cup of coffee in the star light.

As the light began to grow a light mist of fog filled the valley. I could not see more than 40 yards for the first hour. I had begun to think it was going to be a skunk and at 8.20 I decided 15 more minutes and I would head in to work.

Just then I spotted them coming from the north ( my right) A large doe and twin fawns trailing behind her. Normally a doe with multiple fawns gets a pass from me. Any doe who can raise twins in the coyote rich environment we have is such an asset to the farm. But this year it seems almost all the does have twins and one has triplets.

Momma stopped in the scrapes 10 yards from the base of my tree to pee. As she moved ahead I oozed into shooting position and as she passed behind the one tree between us I began my draw. But she picked up on the movement and stopped still. She turned to her right 90 degrees and then turned another 90 back to the north. Broadside now all she had to do was take two steps forward to clear the tree. As she did I picked a ruffed up spot on her side and released my arrow.

To be honest, I thought I missed. I never saw the arrow pass through her and it made no noise what so ever as it did. She ran 20 yards up hill and stood stock still for a few seconds. Then I saw her hind quarters start to sag. She bolted forward another 15 yards or so and collapsed.

Here is the happy hunter and the doe after a short downhill drag to the fire break.

I went back to longbow this year after falling in love with a 68 inch bow made by Timberpoint bows in Estonia. I hunted today with his 64 in model he calls the Icarus. it is 40 lb at 27 inches. I was shooting Bear Paws Pentholon Extreme carbon shaft with a 200 grain Werewolf on the tip.

here is a photo of the bow.

While I love the bow, I have to admit the additional 10 inches of limbs has been a challenge in the tree stand!

Thanks to all of you for your concern on me being MIA. But I have been limiting the time I spend on social media these days.

You will see me now and then that's for sure. I have a brute I am after this year and hopefully I will have another story or two to share as the season goes on.

Happy hunting all!
