My very first hunting trip in the pouring snow

The weather man is calling for a twenty four inch snow storm here in Roanoke county Virginia.   more snow than we will have gotten in fifteen years, also setting records for the month of December!  Anyways, i decide it will be fun to hunt in the snow and i should get to my tree stand before it starts snowing heavily.  As soon as i start walking into the edge of the woods i can barely see through the sno

windburn :(

 
windburn 🙁

w. i don’t turn back.  By the time i get to my stand already an inch and a half of snow has fallen and the steps are slippery climbing up.  im sweating and i should have lived in that last moment of warmth.  finally hooked in my stand i start to feel the snow flakes and wind on my cheeks.  windburn was in my future. my big fluffy NON-waterproof coat was starting to turn white and so was the rest of my clothing. i had to stand up to get some of it off before it all soaked in.  this turned into a routine.  an hour has passed and I’m colder than I’ve ever been in my life, and it feels like the temperatures dropping.  it hurts to look to my left; the wind and snow are hitting me harder than ever.  the next two hours were miserable.  i hadn’t seen a a squirrle  much less a deer and i was about to die so i lower my bow down and descend down the slippery steps once again.  up the hill i fell more times than i can count and next time i WILL dress warmer!

There was an article some time ago called “Save Your Neck” written by Mark Hicks. It focussed on tree-stand safety, specifically on making a safe climbing rope. Can anyone tell me where I can get a copy of the complete article?

get noticed?

hi my name’s Sarah, my absolute favorite thing to do is bow hunt. i am a fourteen year old girl almost fifteen. yes its true. when i tell people i hunt, usually i get a shocked expression and have to explain. no one ever expects that i hunt, not to mention bow hunt. but anyways, the reason im writing this is to let people know what i want to do with my hobby. i want to attempt to start a hunting show. i know this will not be easy or quick but i believe if i work hard i can acheive this goal. making money doing what i love. sounds incredible. i need some advice on how to get a jump start on this career and what i could do to get noticed. thanks, sarah (:l_5b95ea9766c24dafa9a1ff1c794e237b

Ground blind suprise

Ground blind surprise
What can happen when you least expect it….

In the fall of 2006 I had just gotten back into bow hunting after quite a few years away from it. Seems like teen age girls require a lot of time and maintenance, go figure! So in the quest of picking up a used PSE bow and setting it up to be my very own lethal weapon, I was good to go. Seems like practicing is a great past time, and also finding out that pulling a 70 pound draw takes some real getting use to, so starting with a few shots and working up to many didn’t take as long as I thought. So now comes the part in finding a place to hunt, to see if my new set-up would work. Lucky enough my brother has a farm yard not to far from town, so I did a little scouting around for any sign of hoof prints that were not from his horses.
Sure enough, there was split hoof tracks all around the back side of the yard and trees. You could see where bucks were making their scrapes and tearing up the branches. The problem with that was there wasn’t a tree tall enough or even straight enough for a tree stand. So now I started another quest on what to do in setting up some kind of a tripod stand, but knowing what I know about ground blinds, I decided to go that route.
So in being rather thrifty, or,” tight”(and most people tell me I am) I found a small pop-up blind called a
G-20. As some of you probably know, it’s not all that big, but I decided to give it a try.

So then, I took my blind out to the farm to find a spot that would be suitable. I decided on a spot right behind the machine shed in the brush and weeds. This spot had a good view of the coulee that was about 30 yards away. In along the inside edge of the trees, with the grass and weeds as good cover I saw evidence of a lot of deer activity, so it’s here I decided to put my game camera and left it for a few days before I came back to check on it. Sure enough I had pictures of deer on it the first night it was there, but it was showing that they were coming through in the evenings, right before dark. So I spent quite a few evenings sitting, waiting, watching, all on my 5 gallon swivel top lounge stump. But seldom would any come through before dark. Had a doe or spiker come in on occasion, but there again right at dark. So I would get in the blind about an hour before dark as the camera was telling me that it didn’t pay to be there any earlier.
The set up was really nice as I would park my truck on one end of the machine shed, and my blind was on the other, lots of sneaking there.
This particular evening I was thinking it was going to be another uneventful, bird watching, or an occasional farm cat passing night. I was just about ready to start packing up, and there he was, like a ghost from nowhere, a deer, 15 feet in front of me. . Beings my blind was on the east side, I was completely in the shadows.
It was a small frame 4X4 in (ND) or a (8) pointer in some other states, but, never the less he appeared like a ghost. The buck took me totally by surprise and then my heart started to pound like it was going to explode. The adrenalin took over at that point and I had all I could do to not fall off my bucket.
Trying to regain my thoughts, I had to remember that shooting a bow out my blind was a precise action all by itself. Since there is little space, the arrow had to be out the window before I could draw the bow back. Like a small miracle I made the draw, got centered in the blind, got my sights lined up and…. I MISSED
What!! , I couldn’t believe it but the shot went right over his back. Gone he was, as suddenly as he appeared. But, I could not believe it, there he was again. Evidently the buck didn’t know what happened either. The stars, the moon, the blind, and my lethal weapon all became aligned. It was closer to dark than I wanted. Knocking another arrow as fast and quietly as possible, I replayed what had just happened and took a few deep breaths and let another go. This time things went my way, it sounded like I hit a tree the way it cracked, but there were no trees on his far side. The buck spun and was gone in one half of my heartbeat, leaving me there, heart still pounding in the chest.
Now it was almost dark and I was thinking I’d look for him in the morning, so I packed up my things and took the shaky leg walk back to the truck. Heart was still pounding. By the time I had everything in place it was dark. In driving out of the yard, my thoughts were of where he would go, how far, how good of a hit it was. So out the short drive with the lights on I slowly turned on the road with my lights sweeping the field, nothing there. Then as I got to the corner of the yard I swept my lights to the right into a harvested bean field, behind and close to where the blind is. He didn’t go 40 yards, there he was piled up. My heart started pounding all over again at the sight of him laying there.
It was truly a “muzzy moment”, even if the buck wasn’t as big as some that were caught on the camera.
The bigger bucks never showed themselves during daylight hours. With being wound up with excitement, I had to call my buddy Paul and by brother Dan, I think they both told me to slow down and repeat what had just happened.
So this is my first experience with a ground blind and I’m totally hooked on them , yes I do have one now that is large enough to draw a bow in, much easier and more comfortable to move around in.
With looking into all the options that are out there, and the equipment for bow hunting, my wife and I have set up our own web store for archery related products with competitive pricing for everything from bows to blinds and more, so check it out and see what you think about thebowbarn,com and drop us a line or a story about you’re hunting experience.
