Going to hunt a few days with the muzzleloader when the weather and wind look promising.

Hoping for some more snow on Sundays during winter bow. Going to get a camera or two back out next week and see what’s still around.

How is shooting a deer in the winter over bait any different than shooting one with a gun during a drive?
I spent most of my money on hunting and fishing. The rest I just wasted.

I really enjoy winter bow.  Especially now that our daughter is in college and winter break is the only chance that we get to hunt together.

Acorn crop was terrible this year (except for chestnut oaks), so hunt food.

 

I am going out for smoke pole season at the end of this month.  I'm off work, but just started filling those weeks with work.  I need to reserve some time to get into the woods.  You know you have a problem when you create calendar invites to go hunting.

I have a group of about 8 guys that hunt the area I hunt hard up till 6 day, they hunt all day? Go to the trucks for lunch then back in for the evening hunts almost everyday from October-6 day, they start slowing down after 6 day then are done for the year by Christmas. I literally have a few hundred acres of state land to myself all of winter bow. I never really do good but it's nice and quiet knowing any bucks from here on out will make it till next season

I wish I could be that optimistic....still 2 months of gunning in my zones, and if we keep getting snow, I've known a lot of racked bucks, and buttons to be killed after 6day

If we get a lot of snow it's a good thing "kind of"
Keeps the guys out of the woods, man kills more deer than anything people want to point the finger at.
Problem when we get heavy snow and the ice pack over it coyotes can run deer till to tired to continue.
Still they are taking way less deer then our way to long seasons do.

I think this was the 3rd or 4th year in a row that we had crappy weather for opening day of 6 day

 

In north Jersey it was a gorgeous day, you must have been south I guess?   A bit foggy here in the morning, but once that cleared out it was beautiful weather.

I donno what all the fuss is over 6day...we still have two months of hunting so your all around sportsman could still have 3 buck tags in their pockets ( muzzy, shotgun ,winter bow) and you still have shotgun season that hasn't started plus muzzy still going on for another month....with the two muzzy days and 6 days that's only 8 days worth of gun hunting so far..there is still alot of time left and I guarantee that at least 95% of guys on here me included are still going to be chasing bucks for another month and a half imo

 

This, and the fact it's the time when all the yahoos that only hunt these few days of the year are in the woods with their shotgun that wasnt sighted in and their itchy trigger fingers.

There's like 5 months left to hunt in the great state of New Jersey.  Plenty of time to score on a decent buck.

Was able to sit for one day, thanks Stratus, most likely will not get out until next year now. All I saw were a bunch of doe, on the drive home no less.

When I left home it was real foggy, but when I got to my hunting spot there was none.
