Small buck picture

Postby Yogie » Thu Oct 29, 2009 12:42 am

As a wee boy many years ago my older brother would take me along to watch him shoot in archery competitions. I remember thinking how dumb it was, all this practicing when you could take a gun out and just take your pick at anything you were hunting.
But hanging around a little while I got the fever, he then purchased my first bow for me and I still have it today... A couple years ago I was very happy to return the favor with a top of the line bow that he had been wanting for a long time... :||):
Anyway, I'd like to thank my brother for a goal I've just crossed in bow hunting.
Here's a picture of my 100th white tail deer taken by archery.
I know he's no big trophy but they all are in my eyes, he'll be good this winter when the little one and I fire up the grill. :wink:

Fine looking deer. How many sates do you normally hunt in? How many deer are allowed in Wv. per year per person?
I haven't counted the deer I've shot but it's way less than 100. Except for my upcoming trip to ontario I almost always hunt with a bow. I recently went back to a morrison recurve mainly because my kids and grandchildren have returned to traditional equipment.

Wow Yogie number 100 with a bow, that is a very impressive number, and that is a fine looking and most likely a very tastey animal.

Paul, I've hunted many many years here in our state and started back when if you saw a deer track it was a big deal. Now there's so many of them here they sell extra tags for how ever many you want pretty much.
I think the total last year with gun season and all was about 7 a person.
This year they opened a 2 week bow season in Sept. for doe only, after that came a week of muzzle loading. All of this came along before bow season opened Oct. 17th.
I've taken around 6 with my pickup and their laying all over the road on the way to work each morning soo something needs to be done... :(
I hunt only with a bow anymore, even during gun season you'll still see me heading out with my bow. I've fooled with it so long it's just a weapon of choice anymore, I love my gun collection but bows are just a part of me now I guess. :D
I'm looking forward to starting the little boy out, then he can provide meat and dad can drop back to playing a little with the recurve like I've always wanted. :wink:
I've taken my best bucks in the last week of season in Dec. after everythings wrapped up and everyones gone.. :wink:

How old is the son your about to introduce to bowhunting? You can't start them shooting too early. I remember having my oldest son Fred giving an archery demonstration in a local mall for a sporting good store back when he was around 10. He shot his first deer with a bow when he was about 14. I may not have these details exactly correct, CRS. Today he scores racks and is starting a hunting magazine in New Hampshire. My youngest son Scott has an indoor archery range in his garage. I think it was a competition with me. I built a workshop 28x72 with 12' ceilings that I could shoot in . He built one 30 x 65 with 12' ceilings on both stories. A couple years back Fred had my recurve bow custom made for me for father's day. It's weighed with a 27" draw and lettered "thanks for taking me bowhunting dad". He paid $600 for it and it shoots great. The year he gave it to me I was the only one in the family who got a deer that year. Check out the website for the Vermont Traditional Bow Hunters at http://www.centralvermont.com/gmtb/

Every year we have an outdoor "Allard Invitational Archery Shoot" with a rotating trophy that is engraved each year with the new winner's name. It's a piece of Thorne Apple branch holding a brass plaque attached to a white vermont marble base. '

My little one's 8 years old, I kind of got a late start in that department.. :lol:
It's great hearing how your son's have stuck with it through the years, keeps them busy and out of other things. :wink:
Thanks for the web site and I may call on you later for some pointers about recurving...

Dang Yogie you done killed bambie :D good looking buck. I have not hunted in over 15 years. I use to hunt every day. Kinda lost intrest in it. I kept a pack of 15 to 20 dogs for 20 years. Killed in the double digits every year, it got to be more of a job than pleasure thats when I quit, sold the dogs, guns, truck, dog boxes and the cb radios and never looked back. If I do anything it is at 100% and when I quit I quit cold turkey. I hope the cub thing and the hog thing never gets to be a job :D

Boss Hog,
Last year is the first time in 59 years I did not harvest a dear, I could have taken some but I would talk my self out of it because I did not feel like cleaning it. I have done like you and have pretty much quit do to my health. I have the Grandson who lives with me to get the meat. As a matter of fact he harvested a big doe yesterday afternoon and all I had to do was supervise the cleaning. I still enjoy planting food plots and looking at all the pictures on the trail camera. Yogie has me beat on that 100 with bow but I know I have him beat overall. We Had a limit of 6 dear either sex up until 2 years ago then they changed it to 3 bucks and 3 does.



edit: Forgot to add our deer season runs fron 1 Oct till 31 Jan
