Other Big Game Hunting / Florida archery buck
« on: February 11, 2020, 06:03:26 PM »
Even to this day it still blows my mind that I can chase rutting bucks in February. 

On Feb 2nd I was able to put down this cool buck on a super fun hunt. 

I was sitting in an area that I had a feeling would be active and it didnt disappoint me.  The first few hours of the morning I saw bucks cruising around like crazy about 150 yards ahead of my on this little saddle. 
Once it warmed up and the winds started to switch, I snuck over to that saddle to pick a new tree to climb once the winds stabilized. 

No sooner than I marked the spot on my phone I heard a crunch crunch coming up the hill.  I looked over to see a buck heading my way and I didnt even have to second guess that he was getting shot. 

I froze and every time he was behind a bush I would reposition.  It finally got to the point where he was 30 yards away coming straight for me.  There were two trails he could take.  One less travelled path coming directly at me which would have resulted in a 2 yard quick draw and shot and the other trail (which he ended up taking).  He started cutting left and I was able to draw while he passed behind a bush only 7 yards away! Then he emerged at FOUR YARDS BROADSIDE! I stopped him, shot, and instantly smiled because I knew it was a good hit.

I think if I physically could I would have done a couple of backflips out of excitement.  Not only was the whole encounter super awesome, I walked up on this gnarly of a buck 6 point.

Busted up ears, double throat patch, and a mature 6! Something that Ive just always dreamed about shooting!

Its just so cool to see the difference in deer all over the US.  I shot a buck in Kansas this year that was a 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 year old deer who tipped the scales at around 230lbs.  Then here is this 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 year old Florida deer who weighed a whopping 85 lbs field dressed....

Doesnt matter though, this is why I love bow hunting.  What a cool buck and fun experience! Ill never forget that day!

I'm going to miss Phil a lot!
He was always positive and was great at cheering people on. Because of him I'll likely never loose my nickname of "Jake Slayer".....

You will be greatly missed!

This was a doe I took last weekend. Unfortunately I didnt draw the tag I was after, so decided to add some more meat to the freezer.

Congrats Derek!

NC Boys got on the chart in Colorado (09/26/2019). My buddy called one in for me, in the morning and I called one in for him that evening. We both cut our tags the same day.

Well done!!!!!  :thewave:
