We have stepped into the first stages of a fun few months ahead... bucks are now posting rubs/scrapes in and around their core areas. as doe’s inch closer to their breeding cycles, these bucks will become more aggressive and frustrated by the day, in turn making mistakes along the way! movement patterns, red moons and cold fronts are all things to keep an eye on! @advancedwhitetailsystems@illusion_systems

Ken beachy's beautiful iowa buck
co owner @huntersblend coffee☕
i hunted in the morning oct 13th and saw good deer movement but did not see a buck. i passed on a doe because i thought my chances for a buck was good as i had been seeing daytime movement on trail cam photos recently.
i got back into my stand at 3:30 but nothing happened till the last half hour of shooting. i saw a deer 30 yards behind my stand and after closer inspection, realized that it was a buck that i had a number of pictures of. he was coming head on and moved very slow and cautious and at 10 yards looked up directly at me before walking on past. i drew and got my shot at 17 yards. within 30 yards i couldn’t see him and i did not hear him crash so i had just a little doubt but i thought my shot was good. i got down and looked for blood and found very little but kept walking up the ridge and found him only 80 yards.
couldn’t be happier with my southern alberta archery mule deer!! had to take my boots off to stalk into 50 yards. winds 20-25 mph were great to get in close but didn’t affect the shot as wind was from behind me. i kept a little angle on the wind so he wouldn’t smell me. thankful for all the help from my family!! this beast was so heavy!! i love this @cameronrhanes signature @hoytbowhunting rx1 so much!! best and smoothest shooting bow ever!! used a 4mm @eastonarchery fmj(worlds greatest arrow) with @wasparchery 100 gr drone broadhead. so thankful for the life we have!! thank you god!! @spothoggarchery 📸 @jennrivet_
