I was wrappin up this hunt due to high winds, when this fine doe came under me. :shock: I had already pulled my arrow and quivered it and was lowering my bow out of the stand. She was gracious enough to stand still while I renocked an arrow and drilled her :lol:

Well the hunt is over for me here in South West Missouri, :( I ended up killin another doe (twin to the one pictured).
I was sitting one of my favorite clamp ons we call North Pond, and I kept seeing deer crossing thru an opening 60 yds further down the draw. So I decided to take my climber down there and find a tree. After sittin for an uneventful evening, I went back the next morning and got settled again. About 8:30, I see ears twitching thru the cedars, sure enough a big fat doe is meandering below, she walked through my scent path and got a little cautious and started moving away, but her girlfriend fed right under my climber, and looked up at me, :roll: . Thought for sure she was gonna bust me, so she started moving away a little concerned. At twenty yards, I mouth stopped her and she gave me a quartering away shot in the only opening I had. I took it and she crashed some 60 yds away. :D Can you say meat hunt?
Between myself and my two brothers, we prolly seen 25-30 bucks in the last two weeks, some legal, some not, some great 8 points, one really nice chocolate 10 pt, alot of spikes and 6 pts, several broken horns on one side or the other. Definitly seen more bucks than does, but no quality shots at any of them. What seems a little weird to us, was we didn't witness any chasing whatsoever, in years past we'da seen does with bucks on their tails all over the property we hunt, not this year, really strange rut, course the 80 degree days aren't much help :-? I'm afraid the gun hunters are going to massacre these guys starting tomorrow, when the temps come back down. :x
Can't complain though, had a great two weeks with the bros, ate like there was no tomorrow :pp
Going home with all the whitetail I can carry in two ice chests. :sg

Congratulations. Due to the difficulty of bow hunting, a doe is every bit as exciting and rewarding as a buck. Way to go.
