this is why i never let bow hunters on my ranch….. regardless of how good they think they are the lost animals they have to pay for always pizzes them off,,, but it’s an economic loser for the ranch owner…. you want to bow hunt buy your f……. ranch
First time I’ve ever seen a guy tracking deer in flip flops.
Looked like lung shot to Eric
Always learning…at the end of the video we share a take away Landon told us that he learned from his dad about whitetail deer and then ducking in certain positions vs others.
To the ranch fairy is going to hit the roof if he see,s this
Using lite arrows should be illegal. It sounded like a dry fire, no wonder it moved so much.
Definitely sux but u would be amazed what those axis deer survive from. Wrkd at my uncles wild game processing shop near there (NW of San Antonio) n we would find old wounds, whole arrows, etc inside n scarred over in those deer. Definitely a hearty animal. Sorry for ur loss though,.
A lot of guys would just blame the whole thing on the deer jumping the string, a lot of respect for Eric admitting is was a marginal shot to begin with. Great video guys!
When are y’all going to invite to tag along? Great content gentlemen keep it up!
At first I thought it was lung but second look it looked a little higher
I am not a hunter.
Does a more powerful bow could make a difference, and killed the dear?
Love the vids..you guys need to get to Hawaii..let’s hunt
I really hope an effort was made to find that deer and if not kill it at least make sure it was gonna be ok if injured and not just die somewhere. The video was good and this could happen to anyone of course I’m just not sure what one would do in this situation
With those big boys I like to aim for the bottom of the heart to bad that was a really good buck
Insane how much they drop like the most spooky eastern whitetail. Awesome video and content as always guys! Always love the videos keep up the amazing work!
I enjoy seeing you guys hunt all these different animals. I do not get the chance to hunt all that much these days. I hope that will change as my little one gets older. I need to be a daddy first. Can we get a tour of the place the Casey works out of? Also can you guys do a video talking about your favorite animals that you have taken since you all have started working with one and other?
Troughs, blinds and feeders. Farm deer
Come OFF those mechanicals guys! Though they fly like field points, they are sooooooo notorious for LACK of penetration on marginal or hard quarterin shots! Had that had been a cut on contact you would have most likely cut the spine or atleast the femoral artery and that Buck would have been goin home witcha. Trust me I’ve shot atleast half a dozen different mechanicals and had success with them but BY FAR I have had MORE consistent success with Cut on contacts!
Bummer on that last buck you couldn’t find
Dude my phone turns on Siri all the time and it scared the crap out of me😂
This is one of the many lessons my father had taught to me, that not every hunt is successful, but enjoying your time in nature and the experience is what it’s all about! Hope yall smoke a big one next time around!
What was the reason for the low penetration, and I see a lot of people talking about ‘adult arrows’ what’s that? I don’t know anything about archery 😂
Amazing, boom, well done fellas ….
What stabilizer are you using in the blind? Sorry to bother with this as I’m sure you get a LOT of gear questions… I’m looking for something low pro that can be offset
Get on the FOC band wagon for more penetration. It will even make your bow more quite at the release. It is amazing how much difference it makes. Yes you lose speed but if you can’t penetrate what good does that do. You owe it to the animal.
You taught us all a lesson man! Most know to aim low but you taught us to aim even lower. Thank you!
Never shoot when their head is down…. heard that all my life. I tried it last yr at 12 yds and the doe completely ducked my arrow… the still frame shows the arrow about 3inches over her back and her chest almost on the ground.
What camera tripod are you using in the blind?
Time for some adult arrows and time with the Ranch a Fairy and The Ashby Foundation.
Need to go to fixed blade heads. You will have a tough time on elk with those heads this fall. Sorry you lost your stag.
Why not search with dog? It is good hunting practice in Europe.
Archery spot and stalk north western SD mule deer and whitetails sept 1st opening day
@hushin you should check out growing deer tv on youtube episode 462 i beleive. Dr. Woods done a video on deer dropping out of the way of an arrow. He talks about when the head is down vs. up. He done an excellent job and has hopefully helped a lot of hunters be more successful. it sucks to wound an animal and not know whether it survived or died. been there and know the feeling. yall do a great job representing the hunters. keep up the great videos.
Make sure their head is up. They wont drop hardly any once the head is up
Tough break man! That’s hunting though. Still an awesome trip! Thanks for filming!
This series was fun to watch! So happy to see that both of you were able to harvest a buck that’s so awesome! Man I’m sorry you weren’t able to find your buck Eric. can’t wait for the season to start it’s going to be epic! Awesome video!

having been born and raised in Texas, I would add a caveat to Brian’s comment about the opportunity to hunt. That is IF you own land to hunt on. 99+% of land in Texas is private land. No access = no hunting.
Quick question here: I`m not familiar with the laws in Texas (or the US for that matter), but arent you bound by law to persue and kill an animal that has been wounded? The hunting laws where i`m from strictly states that the hunt is not over until the animal has been found and taken care of (either put down or found dead). You are even allowed to enter someone elses land (you should notify them ofc.) to persue an injured animal. If you after a certain ammount of time cant find the injured animal yourself, the "case" i sent over to the state and or Police depending on what type of game you injured. (different ways to handle predatory game (Bears, lynx etc.)
Anyways, good luck on the next hunts and lets hope the land owner (or anyone) finds the injured deer.
Scariest segment was the chair breaking, almost! My heart sank when that buck dropped, much like yours did I’m sure. That would take some serious discipline to aim lower just in anticipation of him dropping like that at the very last moment before impact. Excellent footage and good take away as always. Invaluable. Looking forward to many more episodes.
That’s unfortunate you weren’t able to recover your buck. Next time.
I think the buck will be just fine.
Thank for sharing the hunt. The head down thing is real for sure because for a deer to duck, it must first lower its head. If its head is already lowered, its already got a jump on the duck. I stalked within 60 yards of a feeding axis doe about 2 months ago, set up my video cam, pulled back and let er fly. The arrow was perfectly on target but with her head down feeding, she was already ducking within a split second of the shot. By the time the arrow reaches her, she is tucking her butt under with the arrow passing just behind her butt. I have never see a deer react so fast to get out of the way of an arrow. I’m shooting a 440 gran arrow at 290’/sec. That’s some quick reaction time.
7:15 best part of the whole video. Cheap chairs. Broken more then one myself.
Looks like you hit no mans land. Just above the lungs but below the spine. The fact that you didn’t punch through tells me you need a heavier arrow/broadhead setup. Lose some speed but punch through and the lower speed often makes the bow a bit quieter.
My dad has that happen with a whitetail he shot and the buck ducked and the arrow shot clean right over him. On the bright side I guys are going hone with 2 beautiful bucks! Good job guys
Thanks for sharing. Great video.
Check out the ranch fairy and the hunting Publics video! It will your penetration
What a waste of a good hunt, good axis and a suffering animal. Shame shame.
What outfitter did you go with we are looking to go next winter
Siri shut up im tracking a big ol’e buck haha 😄
