  • Great Bowhunt in Rockingham and never reached for my Bow

    Well my Rockingham Jinx seems to continue, After watching a Nice Doe Friday evening, I decided to take her for meat...Waited till everything was right and Made a shot at 17 yards, Arrow passed through her and stuck in ground, I wait 2.5 hours and Don, Diane and myself start the Blood trail...which led straight to the river!!! Don starts down river and spots her 50 yards away in a log-jam in middle of River, I start to wade to her and quickly second guess that idea after the water goes over my Boots, Decide to come back at First Light with rope ETC and when I returned, she was gone? either came loose in current and drifted to parts unknown of became water-logged and sunk...Bad Feeling but what can you do? Next evening I hunt where a Big 10 has been showing up and had a great evening as 5 different Bucks paraded around my stand but the 10 never showed but did catch some Video to share...Good Luck to everyone and Stay Safe!!! Noticed a 5 second glitch around the 5.30 mark but really can't see the last 2 Bucks sparring anyway.

    great weekend
    Good video footage. Even with the bad luck,it was a great weekend spent with some good friends and even got to see a few deer and turkey too. This is what people are talking about when they say you don't have to come home with a deer to have a great hunt.I can't wait to go back.

    Great hunt
    As always great video from you. I have a new appreciation for what it takes to make and upload a video......lots of time. I tried to video a shot on Sunday, had it zoomed all the way in hit the touch screen to record, ranged the deer, made the shot and killed her, went to check the video......and it didn't record. Note to Viper....don't trust the touch screen, lol! Anyways I'll try the shot again sometime but, they don't present themselves everyday. Thanks for sharing. Hope you get the BIG 10! Straight arrows.

    I can vouch for a good hunt with no kills. Went hunting last Thursday because I read on the so lunar tables that it was the best day to hunt for the month. Well it was spot on, I seen 22 deer in a bean field including a bachelor group of four bucks. Every deer was out of my effective range so I just watched with my binoculars.
