Well I have never yet made a kill, or even taken a shot but my favorite experience so far is I was setting on the ground waiting for a whitetale to come along when this ruffed grouse came struting along and walked up to withen 3 feet of my foot when he took a good look into my eyes and decided he would just side step me. That was prety neet! 06

ought six,<BR>I've had many great experiences while bowhunting in the past 26 years. [img]images/icons/smile.gif" border="0[/img] The greatest???...I'm not sure where to start, but it's all good and I wouldn't trade any of them.<P>I like bowhunting in the late Spring and early Summer for groundhogs. When I'm out there at that time of the year, I get to see a lot of the first born animals, while there still in there exploring stages.<P>Good hunting, bowhunter57

my single best day w/ a bow was 2 seasons ago. i made it to my spot a little later than i would have liked, but i got out as fast and quiet as i could. i was sitting on the ground for about 15 minutes when a cottontail rabbit walked right up to me and began eating a couple of inches from my left leg. i almost started laughing! luckily, i didn't, because about 5 minutes after the rabbit got there a few deer started filtering out into the clearing i was watching. first a doe walked out, then a spike. a few minutes later another doe came out and then a 5-pointer came out. i was sitting there, on the ground w/ these deer anywhere from 10-20 yards in front of me and a rabbit by my left leg... the 5-point and the spike started to spar a little, and after shoving the spike around a little, the small buck walked away. then the 2 does started to leave (in another direction). the buck that was left started licking a branch. i came to full-draw. he stepped into a clear shooting lane and stopped, broadside. his right front leg was a little forward, offering me a shot. my heart was pounding, the adrenaline was flowing, and my mind was racing. i put my 20-yard pin on 'the spot', and when it was all right, i let the arrow go, and missed him cleanly over his back!! agony! the best buck i ever had a chance at w/ rifle or bow, and i cleanly missed him!<P>he's still around, though...i saw him about 6 weeks ago. he's a beautiful 6-point this year, and his rack is as symmetrical as it can be. bow-season opens in 3 weeks. with a lot of luck....


Hunting is not a matter of life or death. It is much more important than that.

Few years ago I was sitting in the forks of a blowdown and watching the squirels run around. there was a a decaying long about 10ft from me and them little buggers were taking turns rubbing on it . They would twist and squirm and then lay down on thier bellies and push along the trunk with thier back legs.That's one of the best.....
