Bow Hunting In The Late Season: 2 Doe Kills Mean Venison For The Freezer! (#216) @GrowingDeer.tv

August 13, 2019


GRANT: As cold weather sets in across the
Midwest, Adam heads north and Heath and Lindsey head west. Both of ’em bring home some venison. ANNOUNCER: GrowingDeer.tv is brought to you
by Bass Pro Shops. Also by Reconyx, Trophy Rock, Muddy Outdoors, Non-Typical Wildlife

Dirt, LaCrosse Footwear, ScentMaster, BloodSport Arrows, and Prime Bows by G5. GRANT: Heath and Lindsey Martin from Arkansas
are one of our Prostaff teams. HEATH: (Whispering) Kill him. GRANT: They’ve shared some great hunts with
us in the past. LINDSEY: We caught him in the act. That right
there is why we’re getting rid of him. GRANT: During November, Heath showed us all
how to get it done as he had a great self-filmed hunt in Northern Missouri. GRANT: I was very impressed with his efforts
to get that footage and tag that Northern Missouri buck. GRANT: More recently, Heath and Lindsey took
a road trip to Kansas. A couple of days earlier, Heath had scouted a property from the edge,
working his way in and actually filmed some deer by a creek bottom. GRANT: It looked like a good place to hang,
so now they’re back with a couple of Muddy’s getting ready to hunt. HEATH: We’re on a new piece of ground, trying
to figure it out. It’s the first morning we’ve ever hunted it. It’s always fun to pick up
a new piece of property and try to figure out how to hunt it, so hopefully, we’re gonna
see some deer. GRANT: Not long after their setup, Heath and
Lindsey are in for a pleasant surprise as Kansas puts on a wildlife show. GRANT: Lindsey laid down some cool footage
of three young bucks that had apparently got back in to a bachelor group. I really like
the footage of them drinking from the icy edge creek and later crossing that very cold
creek. GRANT: Then they spotted some bobcats. GRANT: As the younger cat moves off, listen
closely as you can hear that older cat’s drawn out growls. GRANT: It’s not long until they see a target
of opportunity about 100 yards across the creek. HEATH: (Whispering) I’m trying to decide if
that’s a big doe or a little doe. She looks big to me. GRANT: The doe works her way across the creek
and is finally in range of Health’s bow. HEATH: (Whispering) Stay on her. GRANT: Slow motion reveals a well-placed shot
was avoided by this doe. Normally when this happens, that deer runs to the next zip code.
But this time, Heath was gonna get another shot. HEATH: (Whispering) Did I not hit her good? GRANT: In less than three minutes, she’s worked
all the way back. Actually, coming closer than where she was standing during the first
shot. GRANT: I’ve known and shot bows with Heath
for years. I knew when that doe was coming back in, it wasn’t gonna go well for her. HEATH: (Whispering) (Inaudible) GRANT: Heath was using a G5 Striker head and
BloodSport arrow. And clearly that combination zipped right through that shoulder. GRANT: About the same time Heath and Lindsey
were in Kansas, Adam had rolled north to hunt Northern Missouri. ADAM: Let me tell you — it is quite the change
to hunt in the Ozark Mountains and to head north and hunt in all that crop land. So,
the first afternoon, I climbed in the tree and couldn’t wait to see what would show. ADAM: About an hour later, I caught movement
in the trees and it was the first deer of the afternoon. ADAM: As they worked their way down the edge
of the field, closer to my position, and I’m filming ’em, they nudge a doe and she runs
right out in front of me. ADAM: (Whispering) I have no idea…where
that doe came from. Well, it’s just painted with blood, so it was slightly quartering
to, but that big T3 expandable head — I’m not worried about her at all. It’s always
a good sign when you see one glowing nock in the quiver. ADAM: Somehow it all worked out. I was able
to get my bow and get the shot off. Had a great hit. And it was a short blood trail
to follow. GRANT: These cold days are not only good for
hunting; they’re also great for continuing to work on that predator/prey relationship. GRANT: Trapping’s not only a great way to
balance the predator/prey relationship and work on the conservation model for your property,
it’s a wonderful way to introduce others to the great outdoors. New Year’s Eve here at
The Proving Grounds and out running a trap line this morning with my buddy, Austin. Austin
had some time off school and wanted to join me. We’re just a few traps into it and we’ve
got a raccoon right here in one of our Duke traps. Austin, what do you think about that? AUSTIN: Well, it’s nice to have a raccoon
in one of these traps. GRANT: Yeah. Yeah. Austin’s been sharing with
me. He got a .223 for Christmas and he’s gonna partake of Missouri’s youth season here this
weekend but we’re gonna get a little fur before youth season, so I’m gonna take care of this
raccoon and show Austin how I set this Duke trap. GRANT: Here, Austin. Here’s a little souvenir
from the day — if you want it. Of course, we’ve got a big spring coming out here and
we’re right by the road, so that’s kind of two travel corridors coming together. GRANT: Unlike deer hunting which often involves
sitting still and being quiet for hours at a time, trapping is full of energy, moving,
looking and seeing new sites. It’s an ideal way to share Creation and create that love
for the outdoors into other generations. GRANT: Alright, buddy. Let’s go down the road
and see if we caught anything else. CLINT: We’re out here checking our traps — the
5th of January. As you can see, we got quite a bit of snow on the ground last night. Uh,
snow is one thing. The problem we had was it rained a lot first and it iced over our
sets. So, what we’re doing today is we’re coming in, scraping off that top layer of
ice and it’s still snowing. I’m gonna put this calcium chloride down. Uh, to put this
down, you do need your traps to be properly waxed or treated in some way ’cause it will
rust your traps, but this will keep that top layer from crusting back over if it does thaw
today. Uh, traps will still fire fine through the snow, but the ice is where you run into
problems. So, we’re fixing to scrape all this ice and everything off and try to get these
traps working again tonight. CLINT: No big deal. We can deal with that. GRANT: Whether you’re out looking for sheds
or working on balancing that predator/prey relationship, take a moment to enjoy Creation
and more importantly, take some time and listen to what the Creator is saying to you. Thanks
for watching GrowingDeer.tv. AJ: This is what happens when you try to run
your trap line after a snow storm in the Ozarks. Came about two inches from death, but Clint
over there — a heck of a driver — and maneuvered it into this life saving cedar. Here you go,
take a look. You got the truck there and about a 40 foot drop off into a ravine. But he saved
it. AJ: Well, that was not a fun ride. CLINT: Oh, heck, no. AJ: Me and, uh, Clint — we’re gonna let things
thaw out before we attempt to get anything out of here. ‘Cause I think we’re running
out of miracles. CLINT: Amen. AJ: So. Got the tractor chained up. Rocks
under the tires. Hopefully, she doesn’t go nowhere. Uh, it’s gonna have to wait for some
warm weather. Let’s get out of here.

  1. Keep you a vehicle with a spare set of rims and some alterain tires and only use them for days like that when a street tire isn't good enough

  2. Keep up the good work, GrowingDeer.tv. And Grant, if you get the chance, could you go like my facebook page? We are located at facebook.com/huntingaddiction Thanks so much for the great videos, and awesome stories.

  3. Totally apropos of nothing, tonight's minimum in Adelaide, South Australia is 82º F and the max tomorrow is 107º F.   Pretty much the same all week, until Friday at 86º/104ºF.

  4. I love this channel. Not only, are you not afraid to show kill shots, but you acknowledge God and his creations. You live a life worth sharing. Thanks for your videos!

  5. That doe ducked pretty good. How far was the shot? Generally, they don't have time to duck when the shot is under 20yds.

  6. Great video Grant. I'm ready to see Austin get a shooter in front of him and let that .223 roar. Thanks for sharing and happy new year to all the GDTV folks.

    Bo.

  7. Hey Grant, I found a small kind of inconsistent bedding area with a spot that could produce a good food plot. Would this area be a good spot for a food plot? 

  8. how many acres of soybeans do yall plant in the spring per 100 acres? Curious as to how many acres to plant this spring

  9. Great video! I started trapping for the first time this season and I have found another great way to spend time outdoors. God bless!

  10. I think you'd be proud of what I invested in, I now have a z7 extreme tactical loaded all high end products, I have a tripod and a nice video camera to do videos now I just have to go but a new charger and figure out editing and ill have videos for you to watch and give me tips on, hope you are having great hunting my season is up though I didn't get a buck I filled the deep freeze and I upgraded all my camo and my bow, do a series on editing for us that can't edit, if appreciate it oh so much man, thanks, go over hunting on public land and leased land from older people that have woods, how to get deer to come in without grain fields or food plots

  11. Thanks for sharing these experiences as they help to soothe my accumulated three seasons of cabin fever! Hope to get back into the groove in Northern Missouri or Virginia in the near future – wishing you continued safe and sustainable hunting!

  12. Great Videos keep it up! It's always good taking does to keep the buck to doe ratio in equal level I never have a problem taking a doe!

  13. Love your videos just subscribed Its always good to take some does out of the herd to keep the buck to doe ratio in good level all I do is bowhunt and I never and will never have a problem taking a doe! Nice vids!

  14. This is off topic a bit but I could a place near me that sells trophy rocks and I got one and putt it out. I'm not hunting the deer by my house but they are fun to watch and I want them to be healthy. Good videos keep them coming!

  15. should of put the blade down to stop you from hitting the truck , use the blade to dig down to get to gravel then you might have some traction that looks like a 4×4 tractor, need winter tires and chains.

  16. How many pownds was he pulling because I got a Mathews Z7 extreme maxed at 52 pound what kind of broad heads would you use on that setup.

  17. Yes, I was wondering are you allowed to just dispose of them or have the hides processed for commercial or private use.

  18. I love GDTV and love hunting and outdoors, so I have no problem obviously with killing wildlife if you are going to eat it…I am certainly not one of "those guys" who complains about killing wildlife, but I really dont understand the need to kill those racoons and possums. Coyote's, yes sure. Are they really that much of a nuisance?

  19. Hey Grant does your wife ever make venison stew; it's very good with variety of vegetables in it. I grew up on this stew during my childhood and watching you, your family and staff hunt makes me want to get in on the action while I am still young with a compound bow.

  20. Does anyone know where there is nice public land near Arkansas, me and my grandpa need more places to hunt please. 🙏
