Opening day; Tagged out

Well open day in Ontario has came an gone. I capitalized on it for the first time ever. I had went to put a blind out an just to sit an enjoy the evening but the lord had other plans for me. Shortly after getting the blind set up 4pm my wife thought it was a good idea to FaceTime me. After telling her in a low voice this wasn't helping I heard something next to the blind turns out to be a pheasant. A little while goes by an at 4:55 I see a young doe pop out 40 yards away she looks at the blind stomps a couple of times an turn an goes back the way she'd come from. The whole time I'd been BBMing s buddy that's away moose hunting at 6:56 I looked up an the stands one of three target bucks at 50 yards. He walks out on the opposite side of a clump of trees that I'd said I'd not shoot pass 36 yards. So I pick up the phone an video him. He makes a couple of scrapes then loops back an comes on the closest side of the bush I put the phone down an pick up the bow. He looked at the blind not sure what to make of it after afew seconds he took a couple of steps closer. This time I knew I had to get ready because things were coming to happen fast he put his head up an over his shoulders licked himself then turn back an walked a couple of more steps putting him at about 25 yards. I quickly centred my 20&30 yard pin on his chest as close to his shoulder as I'd dared on a slightly 1/4 to shot an released an Darkhorse stud tipped with a 100 grained Rage three blade out of my Hoyt rampage XT. At the impact he hunched an turned an ran right away heading for the thick stuff. Seconds later as I listen to his retreat I heard him fall an his last kicks. I immediately retreated to my truck an headed to get an Kubota RTV to retrieve him. Upon returning with the RTV I followed the blood trail up hill 80 yards approximately to where he lay. The shortest hunting season I think I've ever had for any species.

Thanks to Darkhorse archery. Unfortunately no longer around.

Congrats on a nice buck. My shortest hunt was about 1 hour. Rifle season and I had just settled in to my blind, poured a coffee and waited for shooting light. At about first light a buck walked into my the clearing i was watching. He scoped the area and when he looked away from where my blind was I fired. Season over because our crew doesn't party hunt.
I was on wood stove and clean up duty for the most of the week. I did get to sleep in though. I did get out the last 2 mornings to try and fill others tags.

I love it when I hear how rage sucks an or the broadhead failed to open. I've never had a bad experience that was rages fault yet. Yes I have loss a deer with a rage broad head but I made a bad shot.

I still have a bunch of the rocky mtn snypers the original rage that I bought on sale when they were discontinued because nobody bought them. I bought a bunch of them because like the original thunderhead they are a great tough head and you never know when they will be discontinued for some new trick. Then a few years later they came out as a rage and are now all the rage but twice the price thats what a good marketing scheme can do LOL

You're not paying for a stay at the Hilton, you're paying to participate in nature. Anything can happen.
