Gosh there are so many weird things that have happened to me. One that clearly stands out is the first buck I ever took. I had scouted the ridge where I always use to hunt pretty good and thought I knew what the deer were doing. All week something kept telling me to hunt on the back side of the ridge. Well gut instinct took over. Come opening day I was in my stand and belted in. What I didn't know was, they were building a house at the bottom of the ridge on the adjoining property. About 8:30 work onnthe house began. The carpenters had an interest in music. Lucky for me they likied the old stuff. As I was sitting there listening a small 5 point walked up. As I placed the pin behind his shoulder The Beatles started playing. I took out his heart as "Paperback Writer' blared from the speakers. I watched the deer expire and then sat and listened to a few more songs then climbed down and took care of the job at hand.

I shot a doe once that took off up the ridge. I tracked for an hour and then lost the blood trail.
I went back to my stand and climbed back up to gather my thoughts and dang. There she was laying about 20-yds from my stand in the other direction. Apparently she made a very huge complete circle.

Or maybe it was somebody elses deer. I never thought of that before now.

crazy stories. i havent really bow hunted enough yet to have any "strange happenings" go on. i only been bow hunting for the past 2 seasons and have managed to take 2 doe each year. now up in Illinois, my buddy shot a doe that decided to turn and lick herself right as he was releasing. the arrow went through one eye, out the bottom of her jaw, and then double lunged her. he said she kinda ran off zig zagging..

Shot a does at 25 yards. She ran right to the bottom of the tree I was in and expired. Can't get any easier then that.

Pulled back on a large doe and released - in one instant I saw felt like somebody smacked me in the nose with a hammer and saw the doe do a barrel roll over a small cedar tree and end up on her back with both legs kicking. Then she bolted upright and left the county with a broken arrow left laying behind. I had not been diligent enough in setting my stand and hadn't noticed the large tree branch that got in the way of my top limb when I released. The top limb of my bow rebounded of the tree branch and the cam smacked me right in the face. The arrow must have been cartwheeling when it hit the deer and broke and scared her half to death.

One of my first does I killed with a bow, I shot at her at about 5 feet and she was looking right at me. She knew something was not right. I should not have shot, but being new and not knowing better, I shot. Well it looked like someone let go of a spring and she went what seemed like 15 feet high and I missed or so I thought. I found the arrow and there was a little blood on it. She did not go 100 yards. I centered the far front leg above what I guess is the knee. After about 50 yards she was spewing blood.

Entered slightly quartering away with her head down. Somehow turned while inside her to exit between her front leg and passed through her neck.


Jay, you weren't hunting on a Grassy Knoll somewhere in Texas, were you?

I was sitting quietly in a treestand when suddenly a bird landed on my arrow a few inches from my hand. Darn near jumped out of the tree I was so startled.

I was hunting with one of my sons at LBL one year, We were on a ridge with a saddle in the middle. As I came back by to get him, I noticed the bottom of his climber was at the bottom of the tree. I asked what happened , He fell asleep and woke to a squirrel on his knee, that scared th @$^&^# out him, he kicked and the rest is history.
