Indiana Whitetail Bow Kill

Since I have spent several hours on my day off today looking at the site I figured I would share my good friend's buck killed in Indiana the last day of the 2013 season.  I have it posted in the elk category too but under another heading and I doubt many get to see it. 

I wont share the good story that goes along with it because it is not my story to share.  Though I will say it was a very good story on an awesome deer hunt.

Nice Vinny, Wish I had time

Nice Vinny, Wish I had time to hunt muley's but its either them or elk and I have to put my efforts on the elk!  Fact is I practically stopped hunting early archery deer just because it takes so much out of us to get ready for elk camp and by the time we get back it is time to catch up at work and get ready for opening gun season.

Thing about my bud is he has 4 -140+ on his wall with only one under 150.  I think the one I posted went just over 180" and is like #5 Indiana all time archery (not for sure on that). All came from his farm which we have hunted for years.  Stopped taking young deer way back in the early nineties and began removing more does,  this it has paid off.  We stay out of one area all year until after rut and the big ones are usually holed up in there feeling safe.  It is hard to hunt though because they can see and smell you come in, have to plan it perfect and the wind can only be coming from the NW.

Cant wait til season!
