My First Kill of the 2015 Archery Season

Post by madeforthewoods on Sat Oct 24, 2015 10:53 pm

I left one spot to go hunt another due to the strong 30mph winds making a complete 180 from South to North. Remembering something I heard ol' Fred Bear say once, that bucks usually travel with the wind at their backs to smell danger from behind, I went to a spot where there is about 40 yards of hardwoods between an open field and unbelievably thick swamp and marsh, and the North wind was blowing into my face from the thick bedding area. I had one hour of daylight left, I sat beneath/behind a large oak tree. at 6:44 pm this guy came out walking right at me just as planned. Don't ever listen to people who say hunting windy rainy days is no good. Any day in the woods with a bow in your hand is a good day. Anyway, He was eating acorns and I watched as he came about 12 yards away. I'm sure I don't have to tell the rest. Thank you for your great timeless advice Mr. Fred Bear!
