4 day hunt in S.E. Illinois. Saw a ton of deer. Had 2 young 8 & 10 pointer come within bow range. Saws good 140 class 8 pointer but had broken G2. But only got within 60 yards. Also had a high 8 pointer within 45 yards but it was also young.
Waited for last hunt to harvest doezilla. She was in middle of hurd of yearlings and doe. Last second she ran to lead the group. Mistake. Walked in what I thought was 20 yards. After ranging it in more like 15 yards. In one motion drew, settled pin, sent arrow. Solid thud. Stumbling after she turned to run. Set up hunt at 6:45am. Was in truck with deer by 8:15am.
Illinois deer hunting happens very fast. Gotta stay on your toes.
