  2. Took my son out hunting this afternoon to a spot I have been getting lots of pictures of some nice bucks. I have a latter stand set up and put my climber slightly above the ladder stand so I could film the hunt. We got in the stand slightly before 4 pm. It was a beautiful night wind was prefect for our hunt tonight. About 45 minutes into out hunt. A spike buck came in from behind us and circle around to our left. He had no idea we were there. Made his way in and started feeding. About 10 minutes later my son says deer. So I look in the direction he’s looking and I see a nice buck approaching.

  4. Day started slow with zero in am. Afternoon proved different. Had this guy and a Big six every day on camera. Told the wife I'm forgoing meat hunting till he is hanging. Well tomorrow it's all about the ladies. Could not have asked for or tried for a better shot, sometimes everything just works. Solid hit lots of blood and on the ground 25yrds from my stand. I know if I had a Ford he'd fit in it However my Taco looks good with meat over filling it lol Stay safe all as harris says

  5. Was lucky Monday night to harvest this 10pt. 20yd shot thru the heart, he traveled maybe 30yds. One of my most enjoyable hunts and being my last in NJ before we move...I'm very happy with the way it's ending. Was in the stand by 4pm, within 1/2 hr a doe, fawn,.spike and 4pt circled down wind of me, didn't pick up my sent and moved out in front to feed. Good start, the young bucks were feeling there oats and decided to spar for a while. .they left. Next I see deer in the field, some feeding and a small 8 and a 6pt going at it full tilt driving each other to the ground at times. Fun

  6. Took this buck last night . Had him on the cams and saw he has a bad back right leg . Have a few better deer around but was happy to take him . Sat with my son in a blind and had a great hunt . He was looking for a certain buck and said I could shoot the dinks . Lol. He passed a few other young bucks and all in all we had a great sit . Time well spent .

  7. Never had time to post anything as area we hunted had bad reception and then things happened fast!! Enjoyed the time with my son tonight, probably more than he did and created another memory. 30 yard shot and she dropped within 25 yards. Now he can seek out the buck on his own!! Saturday was my daughters first time in the woods and she was excited. Had 6 does come in and after she waited patiently for the clear shot, she took her first shot at a deer with the crossbow. 18 yard shot and after a nice 50 yard tracking job she scored her first deer. Proud dad for sure this week.

  8. Sitting in the stand tonight , learned a lifetime friend had passed away . learned a ton about hunting and fishing from him in my early youth , as he always was willing to share his knowledge . when I competed in bigger 3D tourneys he would make it a point to come say good luck , or drive to the shoot to watch . Tears in my eyes I knew I would be shooting my EAB doe tonight , and that it wasn’t going to be an easy hunt . had 2 does coming in about a half hour later , but they were skittish . had 2 eight pointers come in pretty close, finally a few Does were milling aro

  9. Was lucky enough to get my doe on Saturday, was sitting this afternoon waiting on a nice 8 I have on camera when this guy walked past my tree at 12 yards couldn’t pass up such a unique beautiful buck on heavily hunted public land. Now deciding on a full body mount or just tan the hide.

  10. HUGE doe came in solo. Must have closed my eyes briefly, cause when I opened them she was standing at 14 yards away. Perfect quartering shot at 16 yards with the new NAP Doublecross head. She was down 30 yards away...Mature dry doe.. Awesome morning!

  14. Met @nmc02up in Truro to be part of 3 Bobby Rice owned boats - all named “Reel Deal”. Our charter was @TroutandBucks, @Buck154, my son and myself. Our captain - 26 year old Chad Avery. NMC02 can report on what his boat got in mort detail but they got two nice BFT over 100, and we got a 40# and 72 3/4” fish about 200#. My son Landed the smaller and Buck154 the larger after about a 45 minute battle. We assumed boat had standup belts - nope! Rod butt between the legs! . All action on live mackerel although we did jig all day without a hit. Troutandbucks and I always seemed to end up with s

  16. Came up to Maine to do some bear hunting with stony brook lodge. Was supposed to go to their NB camp back in the spring but obviously that didn't happen, so they were very accommodating in making arrangements for everyone to still enjoy a hunt. All of the things I've heard about Bob and Jaye Parker are true. The nicest, most hospitable people who truly care about what they do. They run a great operation and I'll definitely be back. So yesterday was day 1, we got up, ate breakfast, hung out a little around the lodge, then had some lunch, showered and headed out. I was in my stand at around 315p

  17. Got out for a couple hours today with my buddy Glenn. We got about a half of bushel on chicken along with 18 blowfish. Still no desire to hunt deer. Still in fishing mode. Ran off the water early due to threatening weather. Now for the crab feast!

  19. Day #10 - Gotta luv it when a plan comes together and regret when “ All good things come to an end”. Today was, well let’s just say PRICELESS!!! The following is how today unfolded. Over the past few days while glassing the river bottom in the morning I kept seeing the same good buck jumping a cattle fence between 6:45 & 7:00 AM. An old two-track lead up to the fence and the buck was using it to head to his daytime bed. Fast forward to todays plan...Get up extra early (3:30 AM), hike 4 miles out and around as to not spook any deer, cross the Milk River 2x’s and be tucked into the

  21. Back in the tree to see if a shooter comes by. Doe was down around 6:45am this morning. If I can tag out early season then I might be able to get some fall fishing in.

  25. I've been watching this guy for three years. Last year, he was around pre-rut, but disappeared. I figured someone got him, but here he is, alive and well. It's so cool to see him become a shooter. Time stamp is wrong, it's actually 7:14 in these pictures. Can't wait to see him in person again!

  33. Shot this doe out of a ground blind yesterday evening. Nothing to exciting about a doe, but I thought I would add a broadhead review to it. Swhacker 150 grain 3" cut. Excalibur Bulldog 400, 400FPS, range 10 yards. I have used them before with good results and always saw the small entrance hole and large exit. I did some careful checking with this deer, specifically the lungs. (should have taken a picture). The broadhead went thru the center of the lungs. Where it entered was a small closed hole like the entry(pictured) and where it exited the lung was the large 3" hole. So it opened inside th

  35. After a 13 hour sit not seeing anything yesterday, wasn’t sure if I was hunting this morning. Got up around 6am decided what the heck let’s hit my buck stand (breaking my rule of not shooting does from a buck stand) got to my stand around 6:20am as I’m climbing I hear brush moving, didn’t even have time to light up a smoke. I can see a doe feeding. Decided to take a quartering to shot, my old crossbow would have never had a pass through. The swhacker 125 grain 2 blade did its job. Didnt even go twenty. Dragged her 200 yards away and gutted her. I’ll buck hunt the stand this afternoon look

  37. Got in the blind at 5:30, Deer were walking 5' from the blind at 5:45. Lots of deer in and out all morning before 1st light. Shot this doe @ 6:20 am. Went 15 yards & piled up. I had my friend with me and decided to switch places...now its his turn. He missed a small doe 15 min later, 15 min after that a nice mature doe steps out....he pulls the trigger & the xbow blows up!!! Just glad he is not hurt. Called it a morning and gt my doe out of the woods. Going to get another xbow, sight it in and try to get my buddy a doe tonight!.

  40. At this point it's tradition. Kids no matter what have to hunt with me on opening day. My 11 year who is not a trigger puller has been sitting with me since she was three and watched her first deer get shot at. 16 yrds. For the past years we've been getting 1 or 2 on opening day. My little one is a little different and WILL be a trigger puller lol. We held her back till she was 6 last year we got two together and she's hooked. Now one goes in the morning and one in the evening. Morning proved good with one doe down and a tired kid that was quiet the rest of

  42. Day #7 - First and foremost I want to say a prayer for all the Americans who lost their lives 19 years ago on this tragic day. Next, good luck to everyone who will be hunting tomorrow in NJ. Today was a day I want to forget! I decided to get up an hour earlier and hike up above the deer that have been using the river bottom at night. Glass from high to locate bucks and hope that the bucks that have been using the badlands to bed do it again. WELL..I broke a golden rule, “when you see antler tips draw your damn bow”!!! Glasses several bucks down in the river bottom. Then at 72

  43. On way home from a successful trip for tuna in Cape Cod. Unfortunately the top water bite & jig bite was nearly nonexistent. There were three groups on the water each day. One group never tuna fished before and their first tuna was 85 inches....not a bad first tuna. Another group fought a GIANT for 5 hours, only to snap it off. Got one more trip then maybe climb into tree stand.
