I'd shoot one off the roost and a bedded deer too and in bow season at the same time!! But, I won't shoot a sitting rabbit...Just your choice and how you see it as long as it's all legal

Would you shoot a 12PT 180 class buck laying down in his bed broad side?


No, just me personally, could care less if someone else did, but if I am going to make B&C books I want to have things go a little differently.

LMAO! There is nothing I have ever done while hunting that is more satisfying than sneaking up on a mature buck and killing him in his bed, him never even knowing I was there! I've only achieved this twice and I gotta tell you, there is nothing any harder IMO!!!

I thought shooting them on roost was illegal.

I still have reservations about doing it even through I now know it isnt. Finally, I would relish the opportunity to shoot a bedded big buck

Winchester, Dan Fitzgerald has an old video where he sneaks up on a mature buck and arrows it. I think it's called Swamp Buck Fever. He also shoots a bedded one with bow in Corn Crazed Whitetails...like you, he thinks it's an awesome feat.

I do like to watch him prior to the season opening for bow and gun...gets me fired up. He lives over in Tecumseh about 20 minutes from my Michigan home.

Shooting on the roost is not illegal. Shooting before legal shooting time (30 mins prior to legal sunrise) is illegal.

The unethical part, for me, of shooting one on the roost would be slipping under his tree under the cover of darkness and then blasting him after legal shooting time. The analogy of a deer isn't a good comparison, because the deer has his nose and much better eyesight in dark conditions. There is a reason why turkeys roost in trees. They would be defenseless on the ground.

Slip within shooting distance after it's light while he is still in a tree, I have no problem with.

Terrible Ted or Uncle Ted lives about 15-20 minutes west of me in Jackson, MI. I think he calls his place Sunrize or something like that. He had a store out there that we went to once in awhile but closed it a couple of years ago...had mounted Zebras and such in there. Old Wango Tango does have a gift of gab doesn't he!

My sons and I used to use some of Dan Fitzgerald's products and we would buy them by the case. He would have one of his guys meet us half way in Clinton, MI at the McDonald's there so we could pick it up without paying shipping. His Vanilla Killa was one of our favorites for a long time for bow hunting.
