    I already filled my NJ buck tag and I have some nice bucks still on trail cam and November 1st starts extended bow season and a new buck tag!

    I wanted to try a decoy this rut and I heard that decoys also work on doe. So I ordered up a Tink's Miss November decoy and I wanted to see how the deer reacted to it before I tried it at my other spot where my target buck is.



    Here is a pic from the first day, these youngsters came in and were very comfortable with their new mom!

    The next day it was "game on" and the decoy worked great! All of the attention of the deer was on the decoy, awesome!

    With all of the attention on the decoy, I was able to take my time and make a quick ethical kill!

    She didn't run far at all!

    It was an awesome Halloween hunt and I can't wait to try Miss November out on my target buck!

    Here is footage from 1 of 5 cameras I had rolling... full video to follow!

    That is awesome! I tried a decoy for the first time last night. Unfortunately all of the deer I saw were too high up a hill to see it.

    GR8 post! That impact shot is what we all look to accomplish when bow hunting. Well done, enjoy the fruits(aka backstraps) of your labors.
