Creed and Stallone AZ OTC Deer
I’m done for January and I’m here with Creed to chat about deer hunting. The time between the holidays and hunting goes by so fast. I didn’t get anything in December, but I made up for it in January with a big buck I call Megatron. He looked exactly like the offspring of a buck I chased around in 2017 and was in the same area. I stalked him twice last year but wound up getting Covid and my whole plan was shot. All this past December, I kept looking for him but every time I went to glass, some other guys would beat me to it. I wound up shooting him in the neck because he was quartering to me.
Creed got an amazing Coues buck this January and it was a buck he had some history with. He found the buck last year and was living in a place where there were very few deer. He almost killed him last year and got to about 90 yards, but he miscalculated the distance between him and the ravine he was bedded in. This buck was the easiest for Creed to see and lived close to his house. Things took way longer than anticipated because he had to go slow to avoid making too much noise. He started stalking at 11:30 and got him at 2:00.
We also talk about the buck Creed got last year. He shot a Coues deer in January with a bow and before that he got another one with a rifle in November. The buck he shot last January was similar in size to the one he recently shot, and he got to hunt with his brother and cousin. Creed’s brother shot his first archery Coues deer on that trip and later that day they went in to look for another deer his brother had seen. Fortunately, he was right where he was supposed to be, and a doe led him in. Creed and I also talk about frontal shots and share our opinions.
