Archery season is in full swing and the cooler nights have deer moving. I still can’t shoot a rifle due to my port, but I got out my old crossbow and put out some corn about 20 yards from my box stand. Deer are eating it, so I hope to harvest some meat this year although I have never killed a deer with a bow.
I say “harvest” not hunt, since I do not consider shooting game over bait hunting. But since it is legal now, it is ok to shoot deer over bait. Just don’t call it hunting.
Some big bucks are already being killed with bows this year. Many of them are killed in metro counties where there is no gun season. Those bucks have adapted to living around houses in small wooded areas, and avoiding cars, growing big.
