    Next up. This is one of a few doe interested in the gut pile. Hopefully Friday morning, when it cools off, she will be the latest addition to the freezer.

    Since I have a cam at the gut pile, here's a couple vids on a foggy morning.

    No other wildlife.
    Last year there were deer, raccoons, foxes and a yote on the gut pile.
    It is gone now except for the stomach, which is covered with maggots.

    This is the 6 point that was running with the nontypical. This was this morning.

    Congrats!

    Crows are the one animal that always show up at our gut piles.

    Tried posting on my phone. Didn't go through so may be a double post.

    Well, the senior rifle doe season is over and no additional meat is heading to the freezer.
    I went 2 days and my buddy went on Friday.
    It was thick and leafy but great just being out.
    On Thursday, I had a real nice 8 point come up to within 30 yards and checked me out for 3 or 4 minutes before walking away.
    He let me scope him with a frontal presentation, quartering to , a broad side and quartering away.

    Here he is walking away.

    I heard a dozen shots Thursday and only 2 on Friday.
    On Friday, my buddy saw 2 spikes grazing in front of him for a while too.

    We had a decent frost on Thursday but not Friday early.

    So, I'll be in my treestand next week for a 2B and will have to wait till the second week of rifle for a 2A doe.

    My senior lifetime combo will let me hunt for yotes the first week of rifle or I'll see if there are any leftover trout in East Hickory creek.

    It's all good.

    Nice day after that nasty storm yesterday.

    Decided on the spur of the moment to climb my treestand,
    No hunting clothes or boots.
    Just jeans, bow, daypack,

    Got up there about 5 and about 6 saw this girl.

    She became this girl at about 6:05.

    The shot was a bit quartering to so the bolt passed through but had some gut hanging out the exit wound.

    She ran about 120 yards.

    Ill prepared causes issues.
    I found her just about dark.
    my headlamp died. I gutted her in darkness.
    The drags back are entirely uphill.
    The 70 YO knees are asking for ibuprofin. I gave them MGD instead.


    That takes care of the 2B tag. One left for 2A.
    When I go to camp, I will be the shanty bitch but will do some fishing.
    The following week, I'll try for my 2A freezer candidate..


    Retirement is the cats ass.
    Hope I can do this a bit longer.

    Nice going 27hand. Meat in the freezer is always good. All you need now is to find her boyfriend. I got home from Wyoming on the 26th from mule deer and pronghorn, both bit the dust. . I missed old farts day and the early bear season, but Id rather be in Wyoming.

    Thanks guys.
    Cool beans on the trip out west QBC. Good for you.
    I'm just about settled in with a load for my .300 WM and hope to get out there next year.

    The does boyfriend is at the taxidermist.
    I'm heading out to 2A territory tomorrow to look around for a potential tree stand spot and try to fill that tag while archery is still in.

    If not, I still have some 170 Deep Curls (thks) for that 3030 for the second week of rifle.
