It has been a great season so far hunting with friends old and new. Was fortunate and took a nice Buck back in October with my recurve and have had a few close encounters since. I sat last week and almost got a shot at a cool buck ( one more step as the story goes ) but a doe sniffed the arrow stuck in the ground and blew the deal when she snorted. The arrow was stuck there because I had shot over a hog on a easy 15yds shot oh well can't win em all. Back up a little now to the story at hand. Several months ago I met a fellow trad shooter Paul at a local 3D shoot. We did not have a group to shoot with so we shot the course and got to talking hunting and bikes. Was pretty fun so we shot a second round and kept on talking ( pretty sure he beat me both rounds) main talk was elk hunting and I thought we hit it off pretty well. We said we would keep in touch and we did just that and have became dang good friends since. We talk on the phone fairly regular and I have been out to his place and done some fishing and hunting. His wife is one of the sweetest lady's I have ever met and is an outstanding cook but she never lets me help with anything. On my first trip to the place Paul gave me some Simmons TreeSharks cause I had said I shot them. So far I have killed a Sika doe an Aoudad ram and a Whitetail buck with the same TreeShark that Paul had given me , I'm guessing these have built-in luck.

We were hosting some out of state hunters for a week , they would hunt Paul's place and my place. I met up with them at Paul's and shot bows in the down time , well Paul brings out this beautiful Silvertip longbow for us to look at. And I like it seemed I did not want to put it down but we had guys needing to hunt. They ended up shooting several deer each over 5 days and headed off home....

Things are starting to heat up with the rut here in my part of Texas and the bucks are on the move. I got home from work and loaded up and headed to Paul's for a quick visit and hunt if it worked out. We were shooting our bows and he brought out the Silvertip for me to shoot again so like an little kid I shot it with joy. I even hunted with it that afternoon , I was after a hog but only sat surrounded by deer. The rut is on at his place also had a big 7pt buck running the doe all around and even had to look away while he mounted one. Paul shot a doe with his recurve so we got her loaded and in the cooler and had another great meal of fish that I had caught the trip earlier. We slept in or at least I did had another awesome home cooked breakfast and did some work on some stands and got things in order. Before I left Paul asked if I wanted to take the Silvertip with me and I said no I better not. As I loaded up my truck it got the better of me and I said yes I would love to borrow it cause it's been a while since I have killed a deer with a longbow. With the rut going on and bucks everywhere I hoped one would jump in front of one of my arrows.......

When I pulled up my drive a nice buck was running a doe across my front pasture. So come morning time I knew where I would be and there I sat as the sun rose up. And about 30 minutes later the wind switched so I moved across the field and it was the right move cause here comes some deer....
It is a few doe milling around doing what deer do the weather is cool and very overcast just one of those days. A small buck pops out and starts dogging them pretty hard , they go out of sight several times then back again. They hit some heavy woods and are gone a few minutes and when they return the little guy had grown a bunch more horns on his head. Enter stage left my heart in my throat and the shakes and the Silvertip in my hand...

I give a few grunts and hope for the best and thanks to my awareness and awesome calling I do get a shot. No not really pretty sure they never heard me at all I did get the shot because the very sexy doe he was after came and stood under my stand. When he walked over he checked a scrape then started feeding like nothing was going on. Several other deer came up from beside me in the woods so now I have a bunch of eyes to deal with and I'm still shaking and my heart is moving farther up my throat. I start to draw and am half way back and he picks his head up in my direction. That lasted forever got recovered from that and everything looks good so here it goes. Hit a solid anchor and held then cut loose a TreeShark that flew true. He was down in seconds after the hit and I was one happy hunter.....

He is only the second deer I have killed on my place in the five years I have owned it. He is not a monster but I am very proud of him and to kill it with my buddy Paul's Silvertip and the same TreeShark he had given me was very cool....

Stories like these are part of the reason I love Tradgang so much. Nowhere else is it even close to being this good. [thumbsup]
