I shot a nice fat doe on the opening day of Marylands ML season on 10/18/12. 3 or 4 does ran in front of the blow down i was in, in the afternoon almoct 5:00 p.m. when one stopped to check out the blow down i was in. I thank God she stopped, now she's in the frezzer.
Got this doe my last night of hunting in PA and this fox last night in NY. The doe never knew she was hit. Jumped up and walk about 10 feet her headed started nodding and she flipped over within 5 seconds. The fox game into my doe in estrus call
I won a crossbow at our church's Outdoorsman's Dinner last February. I loaned it to a buddy who is retired and hunts a lot. He shot a nice 8-pointer and a doe with it.
I took it out on Nov. 10 and shot a doe after sitting for 5 minutes in a deadfall blind.
Our gun season opened on the 15th and I shot a spike in the morning and a big doe in the afternoon. Didn't take any pics in the field, but here are all three hanging in my garage.
I will probably go out again during the ML season in December.
Good luck to all who are still hunting.
Everyone has different ideas about trophy pictures. Looks around and you will see "long armers," "set behinders," "big cheesers," and "blood covered brutes." I have a few tips to keep your trophy pictures from being laughers or worse yet just plain gross.
#1 Clean it up. Try to avoid bullet holes, gut pile, mass amounts of blood, and the tongue sticking out. You don't want your big buck to look like a angry 1st grader with his tongue out or a MMA fighter during the 3 round.
#2 Long arming...
