Thread: Close to death.

    Close to death.

    I started a thread like this a few years back, on another site. I'm sure you folks might have a picture to share or too.
    Title says it all. Deer that came close to death.

    4ptr at 6yds


    Spike under me.


    Broken 8pt at 19yds


    6pt 14yds


    Spike and a 7ptr inside 25yds




    I thought y'all might've had some deer that were easy pickings that got the pass and never knew you were there.
    Hope you enjoyed and maybe you'll show me some too.

    Small bear at 18 yards. He was smelling my arrow that just passed through an 8pt about 30 minutes before. I killed a different bear off the same ridge 2 weeks later.

    This bird was a different kind of "close to death". He was about 10 yards too far from death. Just could not get him to commit! Pulled the pic from the video I got of him.

    Still don't know if it was a fawn with antlers, or a 1.5 year old with spots, or a cross with a nearby zoo escapee.

    up close.jpg

    This little guy snuck up along the fence row I was sitting in. So at one point he was 2-3 yds away. he continued to feed out it the alfalfa for another 10 minutes before he walked off. I had been getting pictures of a stud taking the same routes. The wrong one showed up that morning.

    image.jpg shot rifle at least five times then this little fella steps out at 300 yds without a care in the world. I kept shooting at the target just to see how he would react, he flinched but that was it. He had better wise up before the season starts. There are guys where I hunt that can't tell a 40 pound spike from a 100 pound doe.

    this was Fall of 2012, my first year bowhunting....hard to tell in the video but this was a very young 7 pt......there's a small, bright green fir tree in the bottom of the frame near the end of the video - that tree literally touches my ladder. the little buck probably got within 10ft of the ladder.
