We have no whitetail deer on Vancouver Island only blacktails. Here is a picture of the first buck I harvested for 2010.

Got all my stuff ready at 6 AM and out the door I went.
Made my morning stop at Tim Hortons and headed over to one of my hunting spots and sat in the vehicle to enjoy my coffee before heading into my spot. I spotted a flashlight moving in my direction form quite aways away and out I get to get ready thinking it might be a trespasser planning on hunting the property. Seemed to far away when he headed into the bush so off I went, mind you this property is almost 2 kms wide. Legal light is upon us and I started through the bnack field in hopes of maybe doing a spot and stalk, but bumped 3 doe's and 2 fawns instead. I slowly crept my way to my stand keeping my eyes and ears open, the winds were wrong for this stand but I knew it was a good area and opted to do a ground sit 80 yrds to the east of it. I picked my tree to settle up against and rested the gun up against so I could move branches out of the way and clear the leaves out to. About the 3'rd swipe of my foot to move the leaves out of the way I heard a noise, turned around and there he was staring at me broadside 12 yrds away and NO gun in hand. I figure he might have thought I was another buck making a scrape and thats what brought him in. I stared at him for afew seconds before I actually reached for my gun and thats when he started to take off, I picked my spot and as soon as he hit it the slug was on its way and hit its mark. 80 yrd recovery.

Pennsylvania's deer season started wet, but just before dark last Friday I shot my first deer with my Ibex, a small racked eight pointer, decent body size though.
Image
I thought I had hit it well and had as it turned out, but there was no blood trail so I decided to wait until the next morning to track it. It was laying about 50 yards from my tree stand, seems a bear got to it before me.
Image
This evening I got a button buck, not big, but at least I get to eat this one's backstrap :wink:
cheers
David
P.S. Tonight I also bought a bear license.

Sorry, no pictures of the crossbow with the deer or me. :( Probably a good thing I'm not in there, as this is a family site. :mrgreen:

Taken 10/8/11 in Marion County, Kentucky with an Excalibur Equinox, Firebolts, and Boltcutter heads. "Assisting" with the shot was a Boo string with catwhiskers, Groundpounder quiver mount, and a NGSS. :wink:

Don't know (or really care) what he scores, but he's a 12 pt (main-frame 10 with about an 8" tine coming off the left main beam and a hook on the right G2). Field dressed weight was 172 lbs. From his teeth he looked to be 2.5 years old, but I've got a feeling I wasn't seeing everything right in there. Between the rack and the weight, he was more than likely at least 3.5 years old.

My best buck to date, and I'm tickled to death to have gotten him with a crossbow! :D

Wow look at that wound. Those boltcutters really make a hole. My deer looks like a puppy compared to some of yours.
