Had a good day on Monday Nov 4th and wanted to share my crazy morning in the woods.. Weather was cold, the rut is kicking in and I had a good stand on a property that is trying to reduce the deer population.

Got up at 4, was on stand at 5:20. The first deer appeared at 7 and 3 archery deer were down by around 7:30 and I had no buck tags left!! And before anyone asks, I checked in the first one online on my phone while sitting in the tree as it was down within sight 50 yards out and I still had plenty of time to hunt. It was 15 mins later when the second one came in so I never had more than 2 unregistered deer in possession, I know the rules :)

Around 7 I saw what looked like a year and a half old doe coming in from the front of me down my left side. Found out after the fact it was a chubby button buck. I bleated to stop it slightly quartering away at about 15 yards, the shot entered high behind left shoulder and an exit is low right shoulder, it sprinted 50 yards and fell. 15 mins later I hear a deer behind me and turn to look and it's an 8 point crossing and heading away out of range. I gave him a few soft grunts to catch his attention and then I heard another one trotting in from in front of me. I looked up and see a fork horn coming in, I assume to check out the grunts. He stopped about 5 feet from where the button was, again about about 15 yards to my left. Same shot and pretty much the same result but ran the other way, the direction of the 8pt and then I heard him crash. While texting a few buddies about the 2 deer and about 10 mins later the 8 point had circled back and walked right up my left side at 15 yards (headed to where I had put out some Tinks 69) and I punched him too. Never even stood up, all 3 were left shots (I'm a right had shot) with some good lanes to the left. They all fell within 5-60 yards of the shot and I gathered them up for the photo and started to work. I had a friend help me drag them to a point I could get my truck to.

Great morning with some crazy action but then started a whole lot of gutting, dragging skinning and getting them on ice. I donated the fork horn to an organization that does an annual cookout, had it butchered and then donated it. My 11 year old daughter and I butchered the other two. Never had a morning bow hunting like that before!!!

Anyway, a few photos.

Yeah the truck looked great. I got some honks and high fives (mostly from trucks) on the highway but I can only imagine how many people I triggered driving into Woburn area :)
