Early Season Success…

Chads First Archery Kill

Chad's First Archery Kill

I haven’t had any luck yet this year, but my friend, Chad, arrowed his first deer a few days ago!  I just got Chad set up into bow hunting this year.  Last year was his first serious hunting, though he had done some over the years.  Chad has only about 3 acres on his property, but that includes a great bedding thicket, and a nice open wood that connects with some other properties.  He has set up an ideal stand, and has seen bucks every day in his stand.  He stuck this decent 7 pointer (his first buck) Thursday morning.

I do have to teach him all the rest that goes with deer hunting.  I spent Thursday morning helping him clean the deer, and then butcher it.  I only had time to help him debone the meat…he had to work on getting the rest done himself.  Normally, I would have helped him till the job was done, but I had 2 tickets to the WVU/Auburn game Thursday night, and had to get out of here early enough to get to Morgantown by 4:30!  So, it ended up being a very busy day, but we had a very good time (even though my Tigers look terrible this year.)

I think I am going to hang my stand tomorrow afternoon, and get at least a couple hours of hunting in on Monday.  Wish me luck!
