After two years, it has finally come together.

This was one of the ones to remember, but not for all the good reasons. First I was late getting started. I had a couple minutes of last minute things to do that ended up taking almost an hour. Then on my way to Sherburne (Louisiana public land), the interstate traffic stopped around 5 miles before my exit adding 30 minutes to my travel time. I decided that even though I was late I could setup and get a couple hours of stand time.

I drove my 4-wheeler to my super secret honey hole, and was greeted by two other ATVs, so I kept going. I scouted around for about 15 minutes in a new area and found some heavy traffic trails and needed to get setup quickly, it was already pushing 5:00 PM. This was my first time setting up with the Lone Wolf sticks and Millennium Lock-on. I only went up 2 sticks high for a total of about 10 feet off the ground.

Hearing noises to my right, I switched up to shoot left handed. At 6:30 I heard something coming quickly to my left. I saw the spike coming in fast, so I switched back to right handed. Just before I went to grunt he stopped about 20 yards straight in front of me. I put the Varizone crosshairs on him, and squeezed off an arrow. I heard it make contact and watched as he trotted off about 60 yards and out of sight. It punched through a rib and deflected my arrow a bit.

2008 Exomax, Varizone, Boo String, Ground Pounder, Cow Whacker tipped with a Rage 3-blade.

Got this nice 8 Point with my Exocet 200 from 25 yards using 2216 arrows and 150 grain Boltcutters. Recovery was 30 yards. I am very happy with this crossbow.

I went out Tuesday night after work in the high wind to a new spot that I have only hunted once before but is good for a south wind. I get a spot on the ground on the north end of the cover and figure the bucks will cruse this side of the woods to sent check the does.
Their was a lot of small under brush and I quickly clear two narrow shooting lanes and range check a few trees
I sit about an hour and a half and at last lite I see a white antler buck with good mass blow through my first lane before I knew what was happening but he was headed for lane # 2 at a good pace he was about to step into the next lane so I gave him a doe bleat to stop him but I blew to soon and he was obscured when he stopped only the white front portion of his rack visible this gave me a chance to get yardage bearings and he is at the 30 yard tree.A few seconds go by and he starts to move I shoot THUMP know I got a hit by the sound but feel I may have hit to far back when I play the mental rewind game , Bow hunter depression sets in, what to do it is almost dark I may have a gut shoot deer , sounded like a kettle drum when the bolt hit.
I pack up and go to where he was when I shot and tie a orange marking tape to a tree so I can find it again and go home pumped and depressed at the same time :cry: I wait 2 hours and go back to search I find the tree with the marking tape and hang a chemical lite stick and start looking for blood and can not find it.
After sometime I find 1 drop that is when decide to just search ahead a bit with the light and finally see a brown hump then white antlers awesome :o Depression gone real fast :D He only went about 80 yards but in the dark you have to almost step on them to find them. He was all ready stiff with rigormortis when I found him it was a better hit than I thought clipped a lung through the liver exit in front of back hip.
I gut him out by head lamp lite and hang another chem lite stick over the Deer and head back to car for the game cart.
I did not get him out of the woods until 12.45.Get home and the family is all asleep I have no one to take pictures so I dig out a tripod take some photos and now have to skin him out It is warm and I have to butcher tomorrow time to call in and use a sick day got buck fever.
At 2:30 I am done with messing with the Deer and can relax.
This is my first year hunting with a crossbow second state land buck this season now I am out of tags and rifle season is 2 weeks away :roll: A good problem to have I guess.
