I killed a doe this last weekend while hunting with Huck in Nebraska. I didn't have my bow with me so Huck was nice enough to let me borrow one of his PSE bows. Thanks a bunch Huck....I like the PSE! Can't wait to get you back out here in December.

Nice start Whip. Congrats. IMHO nothing like a bow kill.

I said my prayer, I saw the constellation “Orion”, and I think I even had my underwear on backwards. But, for some reason, I cannot seem to shake the Nebraska monkey from my back.

This past weekend, I spent two days sitting in a deer stand. It was the start of my fifth deer season in the Husker state. Just like the seasons before, I saw plenty of deer! However, they were zigging while I was zagging! Or, they stayed just outside of bow range. Or, they walked under the stand with inadequate lighting. Or, they were so close I could not pull the bow without being busted. Or, I just couldn’t pull the bow (shoulder was a little sore). The sum total-I’m home empty handed! The whole experience left me fueled for my next adventure to the MONKEY ON MY BACK STATE!

At first, I thought the ole PSE, that usually sings, was having a lock on problem. But that wasn’t the case. Sean Whipple (whip), my host and guide, borrowed my bow. He took five minutes to re-adjust the pins, shot five arrows, and had the bow sighted in. He jumped into a tree stand and within 20 minute had a deer flopping!

I am convinced! It’s not the bow, it’s the Indian! I suck! I think that monkey has a CB radio. I move and the critters just steer around me…They're like spies! They know every move I make. I've got the evidence to prove my theory

I even tried to imitate Sean. I sat in the same stand the day after he shot his doe. Wouldn’t you know it, when Sean came to retrieve to me; he filmed deer and even got a shot at turkeys. He came to my stand location from the previous day. He thought I was set up there (God knows that’s where I should have been-I was warned!) He even had the gall to show me…talk about rubbing it in…LOL!

I’m off to Illinois for Four days starting Saturday. I’m leaving the heavy poundage bow in the case and opting for the lighter bow. With the sore shoulder and lack of back muscles in stand, I think this is the better choice. I hope the Illini state has a shortage of monkeys!

Congratulations Whip. Thanks for showing the old banged up man that his bow still works. LOL ! Huck, it is just a streak of tough hunting for you in Nebraska. Those Nebraska whitetails must have been reading some hunting magazines, and know our tricks . Good luck in Illinois Huck, good hunting for a good man. :yes: Hngry Horse in Pa
