Today’s blog from Kelly “Sheddhunter” Kirsch, who has posted many great antler-hunting stories and tips on BIG DEER. Look forward to more of Kelly’s reports as shed season heats up next spring:
Mike: Here’s a of picture of the deer I shot, West River South Dakota. It was a very tough year, with an EHD outbreak again in central SD…not good.
Hunted a total of 7 hard days and this is the best deer I spotted during legal shooting hours. Did a half-mile crawl to get a 55-yard shot.–Sheddhunter
Great job Kelly. Love to hear the stories of “spot and stalk” for whitetails. I should have attempted to go after a big 9 on November 2. It’s tougher with archery equipment, but I kick myself now for not trying. He was with a “hot” doe, so I might have been able to pull it off. Congrats and Merry Christmas!
Always try, you just never know. I’ve had it work both ways, sometimes not even close and blow it and the reward is when you get so close you can’t believe it.
To me that is the fun part of “HUNTING”
Oh “Landowner” is what you call the man whom gets your deer out… I call them “sons”. Merry Christmas! Terry, a.k.a. BD
Nothing better than having a great relationship with the person you hunt on, he is same age as I and we work the hell out of each other.
You have a Merry Christmas as well.
Nice job, nice cart.
That cart is one slick deal too! I only posed for picture and than let my landowner pull cart and deer out.
