I was hunting the other evening and a legal 5 point with a messed up antler came in and wouldn't leave. He was eating all the corn and I wanted him to leave. I made a few noises in my stand, tapping, knocking and such. This is only 18 yards from the feeder. He'd look, but go right back to eating. I shook a branch. Nothing, Yelled "Hey DEER"!! He just looked. Finally I threw a branch at him. He jumped out of the pen and walked away, almost wistfully it seemed. LOL. Next morning he was back, and I had to climb out of the stand to make him leave. I've decided now that since our place straddles the county line of two AR counties, I'm going to take him next time I hunt. Of course now, I'll never see him again.

If it were me, I'd let him stay all he wants. He's the kind of buck a mature buck will enjoy picking on and running off from the feeder. If he's eating the corn up, throw out more corn.

I was after a particular buck I had seen 2 days earlier. I haven't bow hunted in years and that buck made me go buy a new bow and setup. So after all that cash outlay, I was after him. LOL Since then, I've read the rules better and he doesn't have to be the only 13 incher I shoot this year. So, now I'm gonna tag him tomorrow if he comes back

It's called a Ramcat. 100 grain. Flies pretty true. Supposedly, the fact that the point is the same length as a field point it keeps the spine the same as a field point. The blades sweep back over the shaft. They are held in place with left hand thread allen head screws. Blades are replaceable, and I've had success sharpening them. Haven't shot anything with them yet, I'll let you know how they perform.

Here's a little better pic. Oh, they are also sharpened on both front and back edges of the blade. If it doesn't pass clear through the double edges are supposed to do more damage as the arrow bounces around inside the animal.

Noticed your handle. Our land is in Cooke/Montague counties. We don't have the great looking deer like in the Red River areas of the counties, but it's free. LOL

I threw a beer can onto the back of a big, ugly 4pt that I didn't want to shoot because a buck I was hunting heavily was about 200 yards off and I thought he'd come in. Beer can hits him, he jumps off, startled, then comes back and starts licking the beer can.

Don't blame him, but was really surprised he didn't run off.
