Was invitet to a bowhunting in a state forrest today and ofcourse I was ready :)

The weater was not the best, a real snowstorm made the hunt a bit harder than normal ;)

We startet with breakfast, 23 bowhunters and one hunter with a sweissdog ( trail dog ) and he go in the wood with his riffle, and hunt with us.......

5 guys from the forrest would walk around in the 1000 acers wood, to make the deer walk past a hunter, thats the plan ;)

We get a number and then we got drop around the wood, in the right places, the leader said :roll:

I got a post between to pices of spurce ( green trees ) and I made a little hole to hide in.....

Sooooo much snow and very hard to see against the wind and my bow keep getting covered in snow :shock:

After a little time I see 4 roe deer running from behind and past me at 60 meter, and later a singel deer came in front of me, running like hell and passing me at 10 meter on the trail I was told to get close too :x

A bit later I see 2 deer in front of me, walking very slow and my heart try to beat the snow of my jacket :roll:
They dissapear behind some trees and I draw my bow and is ready when they use the trail, but they dont :?
They go more to the left of me and pass me in 30 meter in some big trees, without any chance to shoot :cry:

At 1 pm, after 3 hours in the snow, the hunt stopped and we have to walk back to the road to get back to a fireplace in the wood, where some food was ready ;)

3 deer was shot, two arrows had missed, no hit at all and a nice day was close to an end.......

After the parade it was a very bad weather to drive home, a lot of cars off the road, but I made it home safe :)

Indeed! :D

Dadburn, I'd be freaked out with worry given all that ice clogging/freezing up the mechanicals in the compound bow. That weather is made for recurves! :lol:
