Final Days Afield

It’s a beautiful morning in the snow covered woods as I type this from my treestand over looking a feeding area along a ridge.

Tomorrow brings the close of the Westchester season and leaves me with almost as many tags as I started with.

The season started off with cool temps, but a full moon and a warm front minimized deer movement during daylight hours.

Passing on several does early in the season led to the freezer taking longer than normal to fill.

I saw three bucks over the 100″ mark this year, but just couldn’t get it done. The first one that walked by I was busy filming, the second encounter was ruined by a nearby doe and the last buck came in on a string until the wind swirled and he ran off.

I would have published this sooner, but just as I was thinking of a closing line I noticed a deer under my stand. As the doe worked its way away from me I drew back and took a 15 yard shot while she was quartering away. I watched her take her last few steps and drop – what a way to end the season

    Sweet- congrats! What a feeling to close the coffin on a hard earned doe! I have a feeling that next season is going to be a great one for us all!

This is an incredible deer and an awesome story. You would never have anyone here passing a deer like this two years in a row, but that's what it takes to grow them BIG! ...
