Having a good year with my recurve...one red fox (called in with rodent squeals)...one coyote (called in with pup distress)....two doe and a buck.....Nothing beats the rush of hunting with traditional archery gear..especially predator calling from the ground with traditional gear!

I like hunting the morning much better than evening but both are good. If your hunting the evenings i like the "food" sounds....rabbit squeals, rodent squels, etc. because they are just getting up and looking to feed....in the morning (after they have been feeding all night)...i like using pup distress calls to play on their emotions...this seems to work well for me.

:lol: :lol: :lol: Too funny Nelson, some folks won't admit their "errors". :lol: I shot at a deer that was walking in the river bottoms one day, shot at him 4 times and he just kept on walking. I figured it was just a miracle until I walked down there and saw I had hit 4 different trees. All had grey trunks and I suppose he was on the opposite side! :x I just named him WOODY and changed stands and got him a few days later. :wink:

A friend of mine has a similar story only he emptied his shot gun at a deer. Later when he investigated what happened, he found where each shot hit a tree along the path the deer took as it walked in a circle around his stand. Unlike you, he did NOT get him a few days later. 8)
