    Costal Season 2011

    Well as luck would have it, I hook up on a nice blacktail. Had a 48 yard, hard downhill angle shot. The only thing that went wrong was something drug him off into a fern patch, and ate his ass end out. I am sure it was a cat, becasue he was barried in the fern patch, in a small drainage. Over all he wentabout 70 yards, and I shot him at last light, so I came back for him in the morning. Good thing about blacktails, you can stuff one into your pack and hike out.

    Great buck! Congrats....too bad about the cat encounter. At least you got most of the deer back.

    Nice. Congratulations on the buck. I agree the size of a blacktail makes for a plus in packing out.

    Nice buck Firearrow!!!
    A couple of years ago my friend shot a buck on opening day with his bow. He hit it a little back and within minutes he heard a bear grab the deer. He waited about an hour to go look for it. When he and another friend found the deer the bear was still on it and had already eaten everything from the middle back to the hind quarters.

    I was up out of Healdsberg, on Gloden Ram property. Pig hunting was tough this year. There was a round up, and that scattered the hogs all over the place.
