  1. Ah whoops. I only bow hunt. No gun for me.
  2. Thank you. I'll be on private land...should have mentioned that.
  3. I was talking to a taxidermist yesterday who said he believes round 2 of the rut kicked off yesterday. Saw two bucks sparring right by one of my stands I planned on hunting yesterday and last second decided not to. That being said, I'll be there tn hunting over a decoy.
  4. That and temperature are the two I follow most. With rising pressure and pressure over 30, I consistently see deer on their feet.
  5. Pressure will be rising Thursday evening and sitting at over 30 Friday AM through Saturday. I plan on being out Thursday evening and Friday AM. Have a nice one on camera I'm hoping I can catch while he's eating.
  6. I'll be out freezing my butt off tomorrow for most of the day. GL to all those out today.

    Good for you. Congrats!
  8. I'd disagree here....although I usually get into the woods about 45 minutes to an hour before first light. I've seen most of my action when I'm up in a tree as the sun is coming up. That being said, I've also had some of my buddies roll out of bed hung over and come in 15-30 minutes after first light and take something nice after being in their stand for 30 minutes. I think it part of it is personal preference. I'm an early bird and am usually excited about getting in the woods early so I'm always anxious to get out of bed when I hunt mornings. Even if I don't see anything, I tell myself it's worth it.
  9. I'll be out early tomorrow. Going to be super cold, they won't have a choice but to be on their feet.
  10. Hello, do you hunt private land in Warwick or public? Always wanted to hunt out there but my sister and brother in law don't have enough property to hunt!

      Thanks. Shot a 9 pointer there last year but only had a few does under me this year.  Don't get to hunt it as often as I would like but going to keep trying.
