Sat last evening to a decent wind from the south.  It was pretty warm but this time of year it tends to cool off pretty quick.  Got in my stand, sat up the GoPro to do some self filming, arrow knocked, all just before 4.  Land owners turned 2 horses loose into this 80 ive been hunting and heard several deer during the sit "blow" which had to be due to the horses. Seen a few groups of does 100 yards away.  At 5:45 seen a yote working his way up the tree line towards me. He was downwind and i was for sure he would bust me.  He worked into 15 yards when i let the arrow fly.  He ran 20 yards and fell over.  I love doing predator control, and when i get the chance with my bow, that tops shooting a deer.  For some reason i dislike evening sits.  I have always seen more deer mornings.  Im sure its my stand locations.  My stand is in the tree with the picture with the arrow.

Good job taking out the song dog. I've only been able to get one of those with my bow so far. I'm fixing to start logging some hours in the stand starting this Sunday. Once youth season is done, I have quite a few vacation days planned to spend in a tree. We don't have much on the cams for mature bucks right now, but anything can happen here in a few weeks when they start looking for love. Plenty of 1.5-2.5 year olds and a few good looking 3.5's as well as plenty of slickheads. Shouldn't have any problem filling the freezer anyways.

Thanks guys.  Ive managed atleast 2 per season with my bow for the past several years. This farm is over ran with them. I will be after them hard after Jan. 15 and bow season ends. 

Your right Seth. Some of my nicer bucks werent on camera this last pull, but i know shortly they, along with other new bucks will be showing up looking for that one night stand. Im actually kinda excited about gun season this year. Im 99.9% bow hunter, but the new place and stand placements has me giddy. And im pretty confident my beautiful wife will finally harvest her first deer.  She made a good shot last year on one, that we tracked 500 yards before the blood drops ended with no deer. 

Bow, gun, small game, waterfowl, predators......Plenty to keep a guy outdoors.
