Buck in velvet


Well I am back in Michigan after a 4 month stint in Europe and New York City and it is nice to be able to see trees and animals again! As I previously mentioned, I’ve been looking to upgrade my bow in some areas, and yesterday I revamped my bow with a Whisker Biscuit rest, Tru-Glo site, Sims Stabilizer and new Carbon Express arrows. But I’ll talk a little bit more about those later.

Yesterday I had an exciting encounter when I took a walk through my land. I bumped two different pairs of a does and fawns and was able to watch another 4 doe and 3 fawns browsing in another area of the timber. But what I was most excited about was my next encounter. As I followed our stream through some thick grass and brush, I was surprised to see a large deer step from around the bend of the stream. I immediately crouched down low and watched as a 10 point buck and an 8 point buck walked down the stream towards me. The two bucks, still in velvet, walked to within literally 5 feet of me before noticing something strange was crouched next to them.  They quickly turned, and hopped onto the opposite shore and headed back into the brush. But this was a really exhilirating experience, as I had a 10 point buck come  face to face with me at about 5 feet. Needless to say, I’m excited for bow season! More on my new gear to come later!

Hey Mark,

Cool story! I’m excited to hear how you like your new gear…is there anyway you could do a video review and post it here for all of us to see?
