Bowhunters have a tremendous option to help increase success in the field for turkey and deer, Decoys. In this month’s Thoughts and Tips, M.R. James provides some important things to do to ensure your success.
The goal was to take a good buck in velvet. The location was spectacular and there were bucks in the area of a newly planted bean field. The weather was perfect as Brian climbed into his stand on the last day of this hunt.
Well, it’s time to hit the stand and Brian Kightlinger has his bow, Black Eagle Zombie Slayers and Grim Reapers ready. He’s looking to take a nice buck in velvet.
Chomping at the bit is probably the best words to describe Brian Kightlinger these days. He is all ramped up, packed up and ready to go after whitetail bucks in velvet in KY. Patience is wearing thin.
Fall is right around the corner and for Brian Kightlinger that means a Ky bowhunt for whitetail in velvet. He knows where he’s going and the countdown has begun.
From the corner of my eye I saw a buck walking up the same trail the doe had taken. He stopped at the same tree and I could see his large body and 5 points on the left side of his rack.
While most people take advantage of the low price sales on Black Friday, Brian Kightlinger takes advantage of the opportunity to climb into a treestand and see if can’t put an arrow through a nice buck.
Brian Kightlinger has had some incredible experiences with his children taking them hunting. This article covers the adventure with his son Sam and his quest for a whitetail deer.
He needed to take two more steps and he would be in the clear. I visualized the shot in my head even before I drew my bow. The buck stepped into the clearing, stopped and looked back over his shoulder. Lee said, ¨ Take your shot!”
I watched Abby as she focused on the buck until I heard the crossbow go off. I looked around the tree to see the buck running through the woods with the Lumenok glowing brightly. Abby squealed with delight that she got him!
The sun was setting and Abby was scanning the woods. About 5:15 she turned, looked at me to ask a questions and her face went blank. I could tell by her expression she saw something behind me. “Dad, there is a huge buck standing behind you on that trail! ¨
The 2010 bowhunting season has pretty much turned out to be a bust for me. I decided to come back to school in Minnesota this fall and dedicate the next few school years to finishing up my bachelors degree and play college football again.
