Got out after work for a full hour.  Wish time change was back to summer...  Saw a glimpse of a deer 10 minutes into my sit, then about 30 minutes later, saw one walking 60ish yards away, paralleling me, so figured not much a change.  Turned out 15 minutes later it wondered to me, got 10 yards, I drew, it stared at me facing.  Bounded a few steps, pauses (brushy), retreats a step, perfect broadside 18 yards.  Late season, happy to fill a tag.

This was my third year hunting with a crossbow. I missed a nice buck last year.  This year I shot a doe on November 5th, my first deer with a crossbow.  It was my third sit.  Saw deer each sit, but nothing came in range. I saw one buck earlier in the day that was 75 yards away so I didn't pull the trigger.  Glad I didn't.  This doe came out at last light and I thought it was about 50 yards away.  I did a measurement on Onx later and found it was 60 yards away!  Shot it in the front of the shoulder and the arrow exited through the throat.  Didn't go too far and bleed out.  Not a huge doe, but she had kicked her young ones out already and was alone, so I took her.

Heard a barred owl, not no deer in the wind today.  Saturday and a cool down may help.

Been bow hunting right by the house the last few weeks and not seeing anything, all the pictures on my trail cameras have been at night. Anyway, this guy came by this afternoon 5 minutes after I got in my stand. Nice 10 pointer I had on camera last week at night. He was trotting through my shooting lane and I just grunted loud by mouth and he stopped and looked for that split second. Went about 100 yards, ​crossed the road by me and died right there. About a 40 foot drag to the road ​

Pulled in the driveway and this guy wouldn’t leave until his doe did. Saturday morning had a 2 yr old 8 chasing a doe in circles for 20min.  Around 7:45 a doe walk right passed me with a really nice 3yr old in tow.  Decided to let him walk.  Maybe he will survive the orange army this weekend.  Saturday evening I saw several small bucks n does milling around.  The corn is coming down this week so their patterns will change.

Jzzzzz, so we have a rough bow season, don't see many deer, and our way to improve on that in the future is to shoot any remaining deer we see?

Just curious on this technique, I thought dead deer didn't make more deer?

Not sure it ever started in Wood county.  Had 2 days of active cruising.  November 1st and last Friday,  otherwise it's just 1.5 year Olds nose to ground and and maybe a 2.5 year old just cruising through.  Have only seen 2 bucks actually chasing a doe. 
I think in my case, doe numbers are too high. No need for bucks to need to look hard to find a doe. Probably the case most places. And high 50's daytime temps doesn't help. 
Good luck and stay safe everyone

Waupaca co: Runts done!

Sat yesterday AM and saw one spooky doe at 8am far off and that was it,  did spook up 2 walking in I could'nt see, pulled my cam card that I normally don't so its been out for over a month and had 231 pics of mostly the same 2 does at night and a few daytime pics since mid october, 1 half rack scrub 6pt, a tall 2yr old spindly 6pt and 1 pic of a nice 8 pt ,the last pic being on Nov 2nd.

Onto the pumpkin patch unfortunately for myself and I think many others If you see a deer whatever its gender you better take it . Going to be a slow season.

Goodhuntin all!

El completo by me in Lacrosse Cty. Saturday morning had a fork cruise by at 20 yards. Let it pass. Evening hunt only seen one deer at dusk out 100yrds. Big body, couldn't tell buck or doe.  Didn't see anything this morning. Passed on the evening hunt tonight. 60+ degrees, grabbed the Stihl and cleared deadfalls off the trails.
On with the long gun next weekend I guess.
