Last year was a very successful hunt in Kansas. I was fortunate to take a great buck with my bow. Take a look at www.BillLowen.com for pictures. This year thanks to TightLines UV I was able to get another shot at another nice deer.
In bow hunting there is obviously little room for error. I was in a great stand and had marked off the area so I knew my yardage, or so I thought. 30 yards is a very comfortable distance for me and a really nice buck came into my area. He was on a steep embankment that I thought was 30 yards away, so I shot for that distance. Turns out he was about 39 feet when I stepped it off – after shooting and missing!
That has to be the worst feeling in the world. It is similar to the scenario of seeing a really big bass on a beg, flipping in a bait and having the fish eat it, only to miss it or break the line.
Since my return home I have been waterfowling a lot. Flambeau sent their newest Storm Front decoys and they are the deal. With these decoys and my Feather Flage camo I feel real good about my chances hunting on the river.
