2008 December 4th Buck

Post by Peach » Thu Dec 11, 2008 9:52 am

This buck was shot at 40 yards with my new Equinox. It is equipped with the STS from the bow shop, and of course with a Boo string with the cat whiskers. I used the Boltcutter broadheads along with the firebolt shafts as provided in the package. Lethal, fast, and quiet.

I didn't think it was going to happen this year. I have been doing my homework, scouting, observing and using trail cams and had seen little sign and fewer pics. Finally Saturday came and I was pumped to get out and hunt, however the wind was out of the south (no good) and dashed any plans to hunt that evening. Sunday morning I got up got online and checked he weather, -FREAKIN COLD degrees C with winds out of west north-west @ 20k gusting to 35k but the wind for the next 3 days were going to be out of the south again so I had to go. So out I went, got bundled up for the first time this year for the long walk in and still was kinda cold. I seen a few fresh tracks on my way in and gave me a sense of hope for the late afternoon sit. I got settled in about 2:40pm and it wasn't 10 min later and I noticed movement across the field. A nice plump 2 1/2 year old 8pt had come out and began to feed. I tell ya I hadn't been that excited since my little girl was born last Jan. Just to see him was excitement enough but he continued to feed my way, my heart was pounding so hard I thought for sure he would hear it. He got within 45 yrds when I shouldered my trusty old Exocet 165 topped with my new to me lumizone (thanx again Boo), freshly installed and dialed in. He was coming strait on then finally he turned broadside @ 30yrds and stopped to paw the ground for food. I put the 30yrd peg tight behind his shoulder and squeezed, I watch the orange Blazers turning the bolt as it arched slightly and disappeared right where I wanted it. The buck bucked his hind legs high and took off like a bullet, he ran about 40yrds, skidded 15yrds got up teetered and fell over. Whew what a feeling, I looked at my watch and it was 2:55pm, that was the shortest sit I have ever had on stand and thankfully so it was so cold I don't think I could have sat there until the end of legal shooting time. He went a total of 57yrds and left a solid blood trail. He field dressed 155lbs, 8pt with a broken brow. I was using an old 165# Exocet, lumizone, 2117 easton's, white wraps, 2" orange Blazers offset 3 degrees and Wasp Boss Bullet's 100grns.
Jeez I almost forgot my bow was strung with none other than a Boo string with silencers and it is quiet.

Everything came together yesterday afternoon when this 5 point gave me a 20 yard shot. He managed to go 50 yards from point of impact.

Got to love the power of these crossbows. The 100 grain 4 blade Muzzy broke his leg on the far side.

Here's a nice deer my neighbour took December 18. He was standing in some think cedars when this doe presented an opportunity. The 18 yard shot hit its mark and was easily recovered within 50 yards. He was using the factory supplied arrows and Wasp broadheads. There will be many fine meals from this young deer.

Although my father in law is not a member here I think this Buck deserves to be shown in the Tropy Room.

This buck will be scored on Jan 2 as he passes the 60 day drying period!
