  1. I totally disagree. I out fish anybody that comes on my boat with gulp. My buddies start with gulp and end with minnows. I use just a minnow and a hook. I buy 2 quarts a trip to get as many big ones as I can. (Which is why I want to learn to start catching them so I can pick threw them) Now out at reefs. I do not use minnows.
  2. How and where to catch minnows for the back bay flounder season? I am curious to see how everyone gets thier minnows. I usually buy them but they are getting expensive and sometimes there is a shortage at the bait shops. I keep my boat at Ocean Heights Marina and fish the back bays of Somers Point and Ocean city.
  3. This and the other bait thread are the worst threads I have seen since joining. I feel ashamed now that I used corn to hunt this year. I have been baiting since August. So I would put me around $800. Looking back. I don't care. I use corn to see deer, shoot deer and eat deer. If I had more time I would probably hunt differently. But I don't, so I use corn. 3 doe's and 1 buck this year I use bait to fish too????
  4. My two buddies have alot more time hunting than me and more Antlers on the wall. They helped me drag the deer out and said his body doesn't match the Antler size. Yesterday I went through my trail camara card to find him. This spot has three 8 pointers on it as well. He is the same body size as them. Good deer for sure. I am really happy with my first buck and going to get a shoulder mount. Thank you for all the replies. Jason
  5. As the title states. After years of hunting and passing on Doe's waiting for a buck to come out. It finally happened. A 5 maybe 6 point. I started learning and hunting on my own in 2012. The camara had deer coming in every night at last light. About 5 shootable bucks with the 3 on 1 side rule along with some nice Doe's. Last weekend I sat here and saw nothing in heavy winds. Everything lined up last night with light winds and it blowing in my favor. I got in around 1:45pm after a long walk because I wanted to get my truck way out of the picture and have no effect on deer movent. So I sat knowing nothing would happen until last light. At 4:00 p.m. I put my mask over my nose and the crossbow up to my face and crouched down into my shooting position and waited. It felt like I was waiting forever but finally I saw two deer coming straight at me to the bait pile. It was a big doe and a buck right behind it. Only two deer. I could see that it had antlers but I couldn't see exactly how big. However I did see that its body was way bigger than the doe and I knew this was going to be my opportunity for a buck. The doe right away gave me a broadside shot and the buck stood facing me with its head down into the corn. I was like oh my God it's getting dark and this buck is not going to give me a shot. So I was contemplating just taking the doe because I knew this was my last day to hunt this year and I wanted another deeer in the freezer. Then all sudden they heard something behind them and the buck turn sideways and I let the bolt fly. what I didn't know is was he was taking a step forward so I hit him a little bit back. It was a 25-yard shot and I had the crosshair just a little high right above his shoulder. I let it sit for about an hour and me and my two buddies went and found it and drug it out. I can't tell you how happy I am and excited. I felt like I had this buck curse on me for a long time. I would see deer sometimes 12 to 15 deer a sit and never see a buck. I have passed on so many doe's waiting for a buck. Now this deer is not going to break any records but for me it means the world. What a way to end the season. let me tell you to my wife has been giving me some shit and she wanted me to watch the eagles game with her friends at the bar yesterday. I'm glad I made the decision to hunt. Thank you for reading.
  6. Im in. Passed on two doe last night at my other spot. Saw 4 deer total. Today's spot has the herd coming in at last light. Hoping I see deer. My last sit here I didn't see anything. This will be my last hunt of the year. Never got my first buck. Just 3 Doe's this year. Kids sports, clinics,trainings and practice will now get my full focus.
  7. I am out. Nothing yet. May be my last sit for the season.
  8. I definitely did something wrong. I have been practicing with my 308 rifle friday and Saturday. I am thinking I flinched on pulling the trigger. My stand has a rest as well. It was good and bad news yesterday. Bad news was I missed. Good news was I saw deer. This spot will get driven. Hoping it settles down quick. Thursday I leave for a 3-day rifle hunt in North Carolina.
  9. I blew it. I'm set up in a new spot that will allow me to bow hunt through december. This was the second sit. First sit I saw no deer. Having little expectation in seeing deer I was in the stand at 1pm and watched the Eagles game on my phone with volume off. At 4:15 i put the phone away and get ready for a shot if something was to come out at last light. Sure enough seconds later 2 big doe's are coming straight at me. Heart beat and shakes kick in. Put my 20 on one and shoot. Sounds like a hit maybe. Both deer never run. They just walk away. I look at spot where I shot and I see a pile of white hair. I missed low. No blood on ground or on bolt. Rechecked my distance with my range finder. Had my 20 on a 24 yard shot. Very disappointed in myself. I haven't checked my bow since the beginning of the season. Going to make sure she is shooting straight before next sit there.
  10. I just got settled in. I have zero optimism....
  11. No luck. Will try again Sunday afternoon.
