    11/17 - Bills Quest for his Buck. Get her done Bill

    Thought for sure you would have found him this morning. Did you kick him up or did he get up on his own? I still bet you will find him not more than 200yds away. He may have backtracked after the pressure was off to go back to where he came from. Hope you can get some closure at some point.

    Best part of being retired is not having that commute . It kept getting worse every year

    11/17 live bow hunt

    Good luck everyone! Good luck finding the deer Bill.liver hit can take a long time. Sounds like he was close to being blead out last night I'm convinced the buck I'm after doesn't like getting wet in the flooded swamp and creeks so he uses the bridge on the rr bed, then drops back down where I'm sitting. I'm surprised nobody is here thus morning.

    It took almost 20 minutes to get home from my hunting spot, usually takes 10.

    Winter gloves?

    Ski gloves, and a hand muff. I can pull my hand out of the glove, leaving it inside the muff to shoot. Can also put hand warmers in the muff.

    Today is the day

    Back when we had deer, and I was just starting out with a bow that needed a pin for every 5yds, I shot over and under a couple dandies. 40 years later, I still remember them, the tree I was in, and the setting as if it happened yesterday. Even remember the doe that ducked my shot when I was 6ft up in the crotch of a tree, and it was right next to the tree. And the stick I hit that I didn't see 2ft in front of me. And watching an arrow go straight up in the air as it hit a twig just before hitting the buck. You're right, you'll never forget those blunders.

    Seen what looked like coyote tracks going under the rootball I'm in. It just ran out and a deer snorted behind me.

    He won't go far bleeding like that. Waiting on the recovery pics. That buck beat me again on the rr bed. He moved after the snow stopped this morning and went down into this meadow again. I'm hoping he's nearby laying in the cattails and moves back through here tonight.

    Going to be hard to loose him in the snow, Bill. By the dark blood and the way he walked off I'd also say liver. No sign of spraying blood? He could live through the night and into tomorow with just a liver shot. Keep looking ahead when you track. If he gets up on you he will lay down again after a hundred yards or two. Hope he's already dead, and you don't have to make the call to wait until the morning.

    Muzzleloader problems

    That's what I was shooting out of my triumph, and couldn't get a good group. Each barrel is different. Shockwaves were way too tight in mine, so I tried the barnes t-ez with pyrodex and 777 since they were a couple thousands less in diameter. Had no confidence in the gun until my son had me try 2 pyrodex pellets with hornady sst 250gr. They fit even better than the t-ez down my barrel and are spot on target, every shot the same. Keep trying different loads, killer, until you're happy with the results.

    Jury Duty

    I always got off because I was the sole provider and didn't get payed for anytime I didn't work, including holidays. Last call I was retired so thought I'd try it. There wasn't a case that day and I got dismissed. Next time I will use my crohns to get off. When I have to go, I've got about a minute to make it to the bathroom. Had 2 cops lie under oath in court over a ticket I didn't deserve. I'd probably get let go if they knew I wouldn't believe a word a cop said in court.

    11/15 Check In - Pre-Snow Storm Hunt

    They are ghosts, but 300yds straight down the middle of a RR bed? Plus, I think heavy snow and fog blinds them to an extent.

    This Just Out From F+G

    My cousin in PA had to have his taxidermist from NY meet him along the Delaware on the PA side to cape out his deer. As they were doing that, they watched 8 deer cross the Delaware into NY. NJ wanted to stop the transport of deer into NJ from PA, but PA was going to do the same to NJ if they did. That's what I heard out in PA, anyway. It hurts NR license sales, especially since you can not leave a carcass in the woods in NJ. What's better anyway, leaving an infected carcass in the woods after deboning it in the state it was shot in, since not many have out of state garbage pick up, or taking the whole deer back home where the carcass can be disposed of in the garbage?
