Before I get started on deer season....I found some more pix of "Muzzy" to share....not my pix(saved to my computer).....wanted to share because I feel they capture what's it's really like to shoot in such a beautiful surroundings.

End of the road....time to get somewhat serious...
 -


Saturday morning "orientation"...let the games begin!
 -

Hard to find a more beautiful place to shoot a bow in New York...
 -
 -

 -

Championship Sunday warm-up's...cool pix that captured me(bright green "hat to the back") and Todd H.(blue shirt with his back to us shooting metal riser recurve)...we would later shoot it out for "all the marbles"!
 -
 -

Thanx to whoever took these great pix!

OK....now on to deer season [archer2]

Deer season 2017...


Before the season would start I got to thinking one day that I've been doing this for an awful long time and started counting.....this was going to be my 40th deer season.....woah, wait a minute....I can't be that old!!!!

But it was true, my 40th season bowhunting deer was about to begin and I wanted it to be a memorable one. Not only here in NY, but I also had a trip to Kansas to hunt with my good buddy Tracy(KSTRAPPER) to look forward to...I was ready to see what the gods of the hunt had in store for me...

October 1st was finally here and I was looking forward to spending some tree time with Cade.

We'd hunted 5 opening days prior since he was 12 yrs old and although we always had a good time....we'd never seen a single deer!

After getting permission to hunt a new little chunk of ground and doing well there in the late season.....I knew right where we wanted to be to start off the year...

Long story short....we saw like 8 does, and something like 5 bucks! Including a big 6 pt that walked right to the base of our tree no offering Cade a shot, picking us out in the tree, spooking back out to about 10yds quartering away....well the combination of the buck being on edge, ducking some and Cade's shot being a bit high(all on video)...the arrow went just over his back! [Frown]

Oct. 2....

Afternoon hunt after work, I'd be by myself...Cade had golf practice...

I was going back to the same stand as I started my season last year, killing a big doe the first time I was in this stand....I was hoping for a repeat.

Although the acorns weren't anywhere near as heavy as last year...the deer were still hitting them....and our freezer was empty of venison...another nice doe would be a perfect way to start my season!

Just like the year prior, there were deer there when I got to the stand. Off they went, but I hoped that ,like last year, they would come back...

It wasn't long they started back, but try as I could....I just couldn't make it happen.....they were on to me....but they wanted those acorns....it was almost like they knew where and what angle they could stand at...

That was until last light when 2 does all of a sudden appeared just about right under me.....I barely got the camera on her in time and swung around to shoot before she went behind some brush and into the orchard...

"CY" looked as though she had launched a tracer round as the lighted nock streaked toward her!

The carbon arrow, with a giant "Big Jim" broadhead, smashed into her low in the shoulder with a loud, bone breaking, crunch!

She was out of sight in no time....but she didn't go very far...
 -

Look at the hole that Big Jim left in her!!
 -

Tag number one of the year punched!
 -


The arrow had broken as she initially lunged forward after impact....but I never did find the BH end of it in the dark...

After I got her hung up, I got looking, and found this...
 -

The 650gr. arrow after smashing the near lower shoulder bone had gone thru and hit the far leg bone, changing direction and traveled about 6 inches down the far leg bone...
