we’re late like real late on that you do just spooking my fire they get to curious my oh we are I think we might just walk straight in and set up on this trail I think it’ll fit you can’t see anything but we can shoot well it’s just after five o’clock and like I said at the car we are late what was there seven deer on the field when we got your logan they were all those and I just tried to spook them as fast as we could I don’t wanna get too curious and then they start blowing and running around but they just trot it back in the woods and as soon as they did Logan and I just kind of rushed up here because I knew that they probably just come right back out and sure enough we had two fawns comes here already as we were setting up so our winds get it’s kind of just blowing right back out towards this field and I’d expect these does that we spooked off earlier to be back out any minute here I can actually see one on the field right now but we got a northwest wind and last night had drove by this field when it was just about dark there’s five bucks out on the south alpha field and all of them looked like something I might shoot one for sure that I would shoot in fact I got a camera up on the private kind of the way we access to get in here closer to the road on the field I checked that the other day and I know that there’s for sure a buck in here that I’ll shoot so hopefully he’s coming off the public here and he comes by tonight this is the spot that we got permission to access the public land through and we’re right on the border of it tonight just based off the way things have been going this year kind of learning that we probably don’t have to push in quite as far right off the bat here especially if it’s a spot that we don’t think it’s been pressured and I think this one definitely hasn’t been based off what I saw last night on that field we got a fence opening with a couple scrapes right back behind us where these deer going through and we’re kind of sitting right at the top of the ridge where these deer filter out on this field we got this drainage to our east that kind of pinches them up within 20 yards and then the big main trail on the ridge here is about 25 yards so should have at least somebody come by and range tonight and there was well used buck bedding areas on both sides when we scouted it two summers ago this summer we saw tons of Bucks out on this field and it just seems like this pretty high density of nice Bucks in here this great weather in October is continuing and I think somebody’s gonna have a legit chance at something tonight sounds like there’s another one coming Logan Right here Logan little bit nice buck best maybe shooter

that’s that goofy one you on him you on him good yeah watch listen I might fall right there did you see him walking yep this is soon after I kept it I just gotta watch for a bit here I’m trying to learn from me and debts miss mistake there he did walk away and I never did see him fall and I had it tucked right up against that shoulder we got plenty of time here so we’re probably just gonna get down I think and wait til Greg and Zach and Ted get back to the house here tonight and watch this footage on the big screen but just it’s awesome I haven’t been able to do an update but I guess you guys can see those dogs were real sketched out because Logan and I made a real big mistake when we walked in here I wanted to set up a little bit further into the timber but we went too far this was the right tree help me come over the fence and just came right straight to this tree we wouldn’t been fine but we got our ground set out in front of us there and they were all acting kind of funny and I was worried that have a nice buck came in that he would really get funny but you walked right over the top of it we see that a lot it seems like to just be the deers personality some bucks even big bucks just don’t seem to care for him in Iowa when we’re in Missouri last year we had that big one come in that he shot at he got kind of sketched out and then a couple minutes later we had one rock walked right by right through our ground scent so I’m pretty jacked I didn’t have time to get nervous and that was one that we had on camera right up by the road there that’s actually gonna be my first public land buck with a bow we’re gonna have to go back and watch it again how would I like to see him fall right there I mean he just slowed down and he looked like he was hurting pretty bad but I don’t know I’d like to see him go down he will stop there for a while and then I just kind of walked off so we’re gonna have to kind of be a little cautious here all right well we’re gonna go grab the arrow maybe look at a little bit of blood but I last saw I’m not too far away so we’re just gonna sneak out go watch the footage kind of consult with the guys and we also want to get out of here just because every single deer walked by within 20 yards on that same trail so I think this would be a pretty good spot for Greg to come in here and whack one with the recurve it’s pretty bright I think it exited maybe through liver but that’s that looks good up there we got in here and there’s all these fresh rubs we had walked kind of to where that one was didn’t see a tree we hop back up in this oak right over my shoulder not very high up but I was just facing where I could shoot sitting down Logan was right over my shoulder on the backside of the tree we knew that was right tree but like I said we just kind of messed up walking through there but ended up working out still I’m just gonna kind of look at some blood here then we’re gonna back out it’s real brights got bubbles in it so Logan and I are pretty pumped ready I’m probably just gonna send that picture to him and not answer him for a little while make him wonder I got that goofy thing I think yeah oh probably 40 minutes ago oh yeah he’s like he was like 10 yards we didn’t see him fall but I mean there’s good bright red blood and hit him like perfect up-and-down it might just be just a touch back but I could see blood I can see blood pouring out of him when he was walking away ten yards well Logan and I are gonna head back to town I think Mindy’s got some food we’re gonna be tracking tonight so if let’s just got it done so Logan and I can eat and then when everybody else gets back we’ll be back down here so we’ll see you at the house yeah ready get ready cuz we gotta track I told Greg

when he left who’s like you know they’re gonna shoot one tonight it’s a cold and rainy it’s probably like five miles back in there no he ain’t you better okay unless you’re in real far which I hope you might as well make it I think we good okay you know it’s cold enough out that we probably other guys know yeah yeah there’s a lot of blood just that point now where I was wondering cuz he is quarter to a little bit coming in close yeah coming in hot what about perfect for your recurves and I never did that but I wish it was a little bit close to the shoulder need a higher you know few inches up and a few inches forward I didn’t I didn’t know he was accorded to that much when I shot but I never saw anybody really right not as quartering to it and we’re low in the tree so like the angles good the back of the left lung and it’s I thought to probably liver and there was a stomach manner yeah there yeah it was like half the the top half the air was bright red and the bottom at the Arrowwood still well it’s starting to spit a little snow and we’re just trying to get this deer card situation figured out got one pin don’t have the other one so I think we’re going to try to Ratchet it together it’s been about four hours and we’re gonna go try to find them now it’s starting to spit snow like I said so these guys went and got what five six coffees so we’ll all be caffeinated and ready to drag this thing out hopefully if just we can get this together we might have to drag it and set a roll it hey there folks were loaded up we got hot coffees put a little bit of vanilla in there for this one going kind of the wimpy version but you know what a little sweet drink warm up here we go or looking to track what do you think about the snow I hate it wow man I’m mad about it yeah I’m sitting in the heat letting the snow and my rollers window back up I can’t handle it I wish I could get dragged out like this cuz out that’s gonna have to be taken to the stand every time we hunt now alright you know I think that’s it Hold’em let’s do this well we’re gonna start slowing down now I think it’s just gonna be me and somebody else kind of working up front and then everybody else will stay with last blood why didn’t ox right up there in the blood just went pretty much straight north and I can see him for 80 yards so we got a pretty good idea of where you want yeah there’s a lot of bubbles in there okay bunch of it here I see this track right there and blood well we’ve learned about 80 yards and bloods good I wouldn’t say it’s great but he’s kind of just found this main deer trail so the covers starting to get the thicker up here and we’re hoping he just laid down in this thicker cover and he’s gonna be right over this hill there’s some blood here it’s a fair amount right here Greg some more blood here he’s kind of going on this trail right here it looks like I’m just gonna start tracking it no I think so too Zack you maybe go that way I’ll go this way we got something here

more up here I think he’d go up there to set up for the wind better cuz I’m gonna say go back back when did his back there’s a small secondary off yes there was that finger there that was kind of got a sauna for sure there’s two nothing that laid down in there might just be going right back to the bedding came from you know wait a second man would walk right by this big realm that the bride where he came up from right here something oh yeah a little turn around again I don’t know if bloods dwindling off and maybe he just took a couple steps in the direction we didn’t expect to but I got on this deer trail where this big route this and jump out get back on what here so hopefully just follows this path here now it doesn’t throw any loops in this thing bunch more rubs up here he might be smarter than where he was better than gonna bet back down hopefully well it’s about 11:45 right now and but it’s kind of piddled off it seems like it’s getting kind of washed away too with the snow and we’re only kind of finding it on high or vegetation mostly but he’s been following this same trail for at least 50 yards now and it seems like he’s just going right back to maybe even the Betty came from there’s been rubs pretty much throughout the whole blood trail along his path so we’re hoping he’s either dead in the first better maybe bet it down a couple times and we find him up here within the next hundred yards well it’s been seven hours now and since last time we updated you we walked another forty yards maybe but kind of had ran out and we were just got all stopped and back looked up and said stop everybody there he is and he’s not in good shape and legally we can’t do anything about it right now so we’ve been sitting here for what a half hour at least this is the little point of bowhunting right here’s I mean yeah we’re gonna get this dear he can not move he came over standing ten yards on right now well I spent about a half hour and pretty sure you just expire I’m just gonna go check and make sure here though I think we’re good yeah thank you little did we know what we are in for yeah I guess so like what you’re saying now like I think the biggest thing for me it’s just you know it’s not what you want to go through but it makes you remember what you’re doing out here and I think that you know as fun as it is to strategize and stuff like yeah I think you are taking the life of a man of only it really puts it into perspective and I could never never thought I would be sad to come up to a buck that I shot and I was very very sad thankful that like the meat is not gonna go to waste but well right and I think that’s the other thing too is like it’s worth being out here so you know he he expired at whatever time with 1:40 I mean if you wait till I

mean first light that’s 7:00 in the morning We heard like 6 coyotes howling there’s kind of everywhere out here there’s coyotes pretty much across whitetails range pretty heavily at this point so you know it’s I guess we take lot of pride and trying to get to these things making sure they’re not gonna go to waste and everything happened so fast and like I did think he was more broadside than what it was when he when I shot but and that’s why it’s just you know important to try to really really focus I mean like like that much difference yeah two inches and he’s in he’s down and I’m yeah i mean more nice when he ran off I was like get on him he might fall right there just my vision of the shot is a hit right where I wanted to I never never had any doubts that we were gonna find him I guess there’s just as time went on I was kind of fearing that what was what happened was gonna happen or if we weren’t gonna find him till tomorrow morning and a coyotes get him you know it’s just guess it’s just won’t work what we’re dealing with out here just one up one through the diaphragm I’m actually working out feeling here you just throw up like I don’t feel good I’m super exhausted but hey let’s get back on it ain’t gonna get himself out you know what I always say come on Myndi show us what ya got is trapped in hold up so luckily we have him into here and she’s pretty much just great in the backside and I don’t know I don’t know what exactly dead to him but he’s back there’s poor Myndi come on Oh no not but it does feel good that I can actually degrees warmer and I’d be plenty happy he’s all over your trail camera wasn’t it yeah I know and we just checked it again today and the most consistent buck on there by far you and I we have a feeling he was the one leaving most of that sign as we got back into the woods and started tracking him just pretty much rubs steady all the way up through there kind of where we had scouted two summers ago you guys kind of had scouted that Ridge side in the back and I were on the other side but we knew there was good buck betting on both sides of it I knew that we’d probably be in the cards last night yeah I mean it’s a great situation a lot of times I think our default mode is to go way back in yeah whenever we’re hunting but as we learned in Minnesota and as you found on this particular piece of public land sometimes you don’t have to mm-hmm one of the big things were always talking about is access creative access and finding ways to get back in where these deer are at and to hunt them effectively you know sometimes it’s kayak sometimes it’s walking two and a half three miles and in this case it was talking to a landowner yeah and that allowed us to just access right to the field there instead of having to walk through all the bedding and it ended up just working out on the first sit which is what we talked about a lot that first sit-in is I mean generally when you’re gonna have the best shot and just kind of catching them off guard and that’s what we did last night so everything worked out as far as finding bucks to hunt coming up with the strategy to get in there and get close and one thing we always learn from is the shots and the shot wasn’t exactly what you thought it would be or meaning and what we we thought would happen after we reviewed the footage on the computer I just didn’t realize that he was quoted to as much as he was and I guess everything happened so fast in bow hunting and the lesson that we learned it’s just I had time and the deer was still comfortable I could have just let him take a few more steps wait for a perfectly broadside or quartering away shot had I made the shot that I thought I made in my head that deer should have fallen right there the deer kind of slowed down to a walk and then walked off so there’s clue number one for somebody that doesn’t have video and then of course clue number two is the

arrow itself you had good bright blood on it but then also there was some stomach matter in fat in fat so that tells you that it was back obviously and then a little bit low so you have those clues you know you need to proceed with caution you know so like we talked about last night it was a little bit of a reality check as bowhunters to make 100% sure when you release an arrow that it’s a high percentage shot and then you can put the animal down quickly yeah I was definitely a learning experience for me and I think a lot of the guys in the group and hopefully you guys home even and I hope next time I’m definitely just going to take that extra couple seconds there let them take that those extra couple steps to make sure that the shot is perfect yeah I mean bow hunting is a game of inches and often times a rollercoaster of emotion mm-hmm that’s exactly what it was last night yeah we’re all happy for you and you know we started off the deer tour with three bucks down in one week in two different states and here we’re hunting our home state of Iowa and it took a couple weeks before Jake finally got us on the board but Aaron’s in Missouri hunting right now doing some scouting for the Missouri leg of the deer tour and then we’re just gonna keep on rolling yeah about this weather today I know Blue Bird day you guys better get running you’d better get to the stand I’m ready to get back out with the longbow and see if I can get a deer like this I hope charge just like you did I know awesome man Congrats yep thank you guys
