We had a great time lastnight playing with this little fellow. Jim and I headed down to some land a friend of ours has and were walking around just seeing what we could see, when we ran across this little guy 26 yards away.
He moved away, Jim glassed, He looked at me and said Its a fork horn!
We quietly snuck threw the weeds and bushes. We had lost sight of him at one point, then all of a sudden he popped up out of the bushes he was laying behind (11 yards away). WE FROZE! It was a total staredown for about 5 minutes. Finaly Jim told me to move away, walking at a angle I slowly moved off...all the while swaying my hands back and forth above my head. (I had seen this on a video!) haha....I never in my little mind ever thought it would work, it was worth a try. But as I moved away I made as much noise as I could, waving my hands, he snorted, licked the air and grumbled. The further away I got the more corious he became.
In the mean time, Jim was at full draw for what seemed forever x3! We couldnt get him to turn away to give him a good side shot. I got about 50 yards away and he started coming towards me, then he would walk the other way in circles and come back at me......Then finaly, he came out of the bushes and Jim had a clear shot. I know hes not the biggest bull of the year, but oh boy is he going to be good eating! Not to mention the adrenaline rush I had being the BAIT! ha!
Anyhow, here is our first stalk. Man, Im liking this archery stuff!
Thanks for letting us share! Debbie
