One of Deerpros.com visitors shared this video from facebook. I have never been on Facebook and after all the privacy issues I don’t plan on joining.

Lee Ellinburg quietly connected to his Lifeline and slipped into his tree stand. Before he could pull his bow up the biggest buck of his life shows up!

To make matters even worse, the big buck actually steps over his bow. Unbelievable!!

I can sympathize with this poor sole. In the mid 90s I was hunting northwester PA during the first week of November. It was cold and I wore gloves and a heavier coat that I usually wore. A very nice 8 point approached my stand and I started to prepare for the shot. That is when I realized the head of my release aid had come unscrewed and was laying at the bottom of the tree. What a totally hopeless feeling.

About Jeff

Deer hunting is a great sport and is one of my passions. Between September and January you will probably find me in a treestand with bow in hand. My hope with this site is to share my experience to help you have a more successful and enjoyable deer hunt.
