I’ve never met Jim in person but I really like this guy. I mean, you can tell by his smile here that he just gets it. That same feel is evident in all his “hero” shots, including this Wild Life classic with Jim and son Jayden.
Jim connected with this big doe on the morning of Oct. 26. He said it has been a slow archery season for him, but he finally saw a few deer that morning and this one offered a 25-yard shot that Jim made good on. Hit in the heart with a Rage broadhead-tipped arrow, the doe piled up in sight.
As I wrote about in my column in today’s Roanoke Times, we are on the cusp of the rut. Some of us area already seeing signs. It should get better and better the next couple of weeks.
Today is a day off for most of us. By that I mean a day off from hunting. If you are out in this stuff you are crazy! Here’s hoping everyone came through the worst of Sandy relatively unscathed.
If you’ve been hunting, please take a moment to offer a quick report on what you’re seeing either below, or below the “Rut Report” sticky post.
