Rick's Last Deer Hunt
By Rick Philippi
Feb 24, 2009 - 4:41:03 PM

We still had some MLD permitsfor my hunting land -- which allows us to hunt through February.  I gave Robert a call last week and he and I decided to bust out to the ranch and get in a quick 2 day hunt. 

We had a great hunt.  On Wednesday Robert had 4 Toms come in and then right at dark he had 5 bucks at 6 yards from the Double Bull Dark Horse.  We were after does on this hunt so Robert just enjoyed the sight of 5 bucks at such a close distance.

Thursday morning was slow, we did not see a thing.  Thursday evening picked up. 

Both Robert and I had nice Tom Turkeys within bow range.  I was watching gobblers when I noticed some movement 60 yards in front of me. There were 4 mature does making their way down a trail that led within 14 yards of my Gametamer Quad Pod. 

When the group of 4 does hit my shooting lane I already had the Bow Tech General at full draw.  I sent the carbon Express arrow tipped with the 100 grain XP Spitfire on its way.  The hit was good and the deer did not go 80 yards.
