Title: Hurricane Helped Bow Hunters
Post by: bohicajuan on September 21, 2017, 07:45:24 PM
For about the 4th year in a row, bow season snuck up on me and I wasn't ready. But this year it was crazy. Opening weekend was September 9th and Hurricane Irma was beating up Florida and coming our way. I really hadn't planned on going hunting, but by Thursday I was seriously reconsidering.

A friend of mine that works for the Georgia Department of Transportation sent me an app that I could connect to our computers and see all the Interstates throughout Georgia. Looking at I-75, I-85, I-95 and I-20 you would have thought that Georgia was being invaded by Florida. Bumper to bumper traffic, mostly going north but some heading east and west.

All that traffic convinced me to stay home. As it turned out I was called in to work that weekend because of the number of people that we were now classifying as "refugees" :roll: :roll: :tickedoff :tickedoff

I don't think there was anybody left in Florida!

But the bizarre part was that with the approaching storm, it caused the barometer to go cray and this caused the deer to start moving and pretty much keep moving. 5 members of my club made it down to hunt. 5 guys using bows killed 7 deer in two days! :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

That has never happened before. One was a nice 8 point and another was a real wide racked 6 point. The rest were does, but they saw and shot at but missed two more deer and saw more that were just out of bow range.

They said the deer cooler we use to process the deer was busier than it had ever been before on an opening weekend of bow season.

Typical of my luck, I was stuck here having to babysit people!! :knuppel2 :knuppel2 :tickedoff :tickedoff

I still haven't gone hunting and won't make it this week either because of prior commitments, but even if I went knowing my luck I wouldn't see a thing! :'( :'( :'(
