Shot my first velvet buck this past weekend in East Tennessee. We were fortunate to be able have a early archery buck only season and this cull buck walked out (spike for two years = out of the gene pool)Image

Congrats. Good one to get out of the herd.

Season hasn't started yet, but I've been doing as much scouting as I can make time for, along with some stump shooting so that I can still hit something if the opportunity presents itself. Found a pretty good spot yesterday, but the highlight of the day for me was this shot. I was on a ridge when I looked off to my left. There was a long, clear lane with a small patch of sunlight at the end. Right in the center of that patch of sun was a stump that was just begging to have an arrow flung at it. I didn't really know the distance so I tried to just let instinct take over. It seemed like the arrow was just arcing in there in slow motion until it whacked right into the stump. I turned and waited for the roar of applause and standing ovation, but there was no one there but myself. Oh well. Paced it off at 56 yards.

Was it hard to sneak upon it?

Hell of a shot, Instinctive Archer. You really live up to your name. I wonder if I would have seen that stump at 50yds.

These are my bucks from this year. I dont think that I will shoot another one unless something really interesting comes along.
The one on the right is from last saturday. I managed to shoot him at around 140yds with the Drilling.
Of course he could have been a little older, but he was a border buck. He is a picture book example, though: Good pearling and a very nice color.

Oak are pretty lethargic and are not hard to sneak up on. Maple seem to be easy as well, but don't let them fool you, they have a nasty habit of ducking the arrow... :roll: :lol:

Nice roes Moosehunter!
