Winter bow.

Recommended Posts

Any of you guys been out for winter bow lately?

 

Been frigid.

 

I've been out a handful of times so far. My brother has been out twice. Second time he took this doe on a long afternoon sit on one of those frigid cold days.

 

A little doe management in an area that needs it.

I hope to take at least one more mature doe out of the area myself. It's public land so not sure what others are doing, but it's one of those increasingly rare public areas that definitely have way too many deer still.

 

BowhunterNJ, recognize that Ross bow?:)

Nice doe for sure under harsh conditions.. and yes I loved my Ross bows..lol, right up to when I sold them..haha.. The Ross 337 was an incredible tack driver and the Cardiac was a fantastic hunting bow. However, have I mentioned the BowTech Experience yet???

Yeah it's been cold. Last night Andy, Jon, Mike and I coyote hunted from about 4pm till Midnite or so. It was a little chilly but I never put on my jacket, kept it tied around my waist. LOL....

 

Wind is what makes it tough. My eyes and nose were dripping like faucets and freezing in my beard with the wind hitting me in the face. Had beardcicles...

That's why I went back to a biscuit. My dropaway string got caught on a branch pulling the bow up the tree and I shot a foot over a doe at 15yds! I never missed one with a WB.

nice doe, I love winter bow. Got one doe and kinda shoved out of my 2 spots, but that is public land. That is why I have a climber

That's me in that photo with a frozen nose & fingers and I'm proud of it! Lol

 

But Matty, I thought I told you not to be posting any photos of me with any strange does! My wife might see this and get jealous!
