Double Kicker Buck
- Day 1, Ripping It UP
Saturday's temperature drop
made the difference, the deer started moving. Saturday afternoon the Double
Kicker Buck came into my hunt area ripped up a tree, and more. Here's what
happened and the pics. GO...
Double Kicker Hunt (Day
2 - 4)
On the second day I switched
to a treestand 90 yards from the food plot. I've had a North Starr Treestands
"Steel Starr" in this tree for 3 years and hop in and out of it at will.
Treestands) In the woods I saw the Double Kicker buck and his grey
running buddy. I don't have a clear view of the food plot from here but
I saw deer parts in it.
I moved to a different stand
where I can watch the back fence corner of my corral. This fence line and
corner is a good deer funnel and the trail I saw the bucks on yesterday
goes through here. I have a "Boss Star" treestand from North Starr in this
tree because the seat turns and I need that here because there are shooting
lanes to the left, right and in front of my tree.
Several does walked right
by me before I saw the Double Kicker bucks tall antlers a little further
in the woods than I wanted them to be.
He was alone and seemed
interested in something ahead of him.
An 8-point walked into view
and the two bucks watched each other.
Then they both looked into
the woods and walked in that direction.
As darkness came several
deer slipped through my area in the fading light. The Double Kicker walked
right under my tree but I could not see my pins clearly. He headed toward
the food plot. I didn't want to spook him so I sat in the woods an hour
after dark -- until I felt deer were out of the area. When I finally got
down I made it to the house without hearing any deer snorts.
4th Day - Here He Comes...
Two sixers came to the food
plot and drank water from my water tube. They walked around and saw someting
and left. Before long the Double Kicker buck walked into my view and I
took its picture as it got closer.
It stopped and looked in
my direction. There was time for another picture so I took it. The buck
seemed to be staring at me.
And just as quickly and
delibertly as it came up it walked away. My thoughts felt scrambled. I
did not expect this. Did he leave because there were no does or otheer
deer. Or because he had seen me or the camera? And is he gonna be back?
Double Kicker Hunt - Day
5 - Banging Heads
The Double Kicker buck walked
in my direction and when he stopped and watched the other two bucks I checked
him with my Nikon rangefinder, 24.5 yards. I stayed behind the camera tripod
but carefully picked up my BowTech. I wanted him a few yards closer and
if he did I was ready. GO...
Double Kicker Hunt - Day
I was early. The deer were
late. Both Double Kicker and his Buddy walked through the high grass surrounding
my food plot. I took a quick pic of each of them, set down my camera, and
got my BowTech and waited at the ready. Several times, I checked him with
the Nikon rangefinder. I don't like to shoot past 20 yards and prefer closer
and Double Kicker stayed out of reach. No other deer were in sight and
they left in a few minutes for some place unknown. Like I said yesterday,
I better get some shooting done.
Double Kicker Hunt - Day
A 6-point came from my right
and the Buddy started toward the deer and Double Kicker followed. I can't
believe my good luck. No time to fool around now. GO...
Double Kicker Hunt - Last
Hunt - It All Comes Down To This ...
He took off after a doe
and chased her all around the place. Then they both stopped and stood apart.
I range findered him at 27.5 yards. There were several deer closer to my
Double Bull blind and he walked over to them. I pushed the yardage button
... 18 yards. To the Hunt &
