  • STRAIGHT ARROW: Successful bowhunting in October yields a buck

    After the weekend of Oct. 21-22, we experienced a change in the weather. With rain moving in for Monday, Oct. 23, we were between the new moon and the first quarter moon, and the end of October was drawing near.

    The rain was supposed to stop Monday afternoon. There was a light drizzle still falling, and it was windy. The drizzle stopped, and Eric waited patiently until dusk, but did not see a deer.

    On Tuesday morning, Eric left his house at 6 a.m., and by 7 was in the same stand he hunted the night before.
