It was a Great start to the 2011 bow season here in Illinois!!
With temps dropping in the AM to the frosty mid 30s and only getting up to the low 60s and high pressure moving in and stabilizing. It set the stage for a fantastic start to this seasons quest to fill the freezer. After missing a doe in the evening of the 1st, opportunity knocked again in the AM of the 2nd when a 9 point buck stopped 15 yds in front on my stand. The Xforce powered muzzy tipped gold tip pro hunters blew through the cage and both lungs, allowing the buck to go a mere 10 yds before expiring.
