    Eyesofthewoods got a reaction from hammer4reel in Playing the wind . Food for thought   
    Playing the wind is important but I don’t always let it dictate my hunts.  For instance last Monday I went out and the wind was gusting from every direction.  To me atleast that’s not horrible.  There is no steady wind direction and it breaks up any scent at that point.  Not to mention the loudness of said wind makes for easier movement on stand without noise.  Just have to hope the deer in that area still want to get up and move.  I myself have had a few deer come in from down wind and not think a thing of it.

    Squirrel  populations are directly related to the predators in the area and the acorn crop.  They bounce back quick though too.  The rut will start in late November so you’ll see some males about looking for females.

    What I don’t understand is it was supposed to be a prop.  Not even a real gun remotely capable of firing a round.  Seems suspicious to me almost like someone switch it out and knew this would happen.  Just doesn’t make any sense to me.  Regardless of that for Baldwin is pot kettle meet black. lol

    Eyesofthewoods reacted to bushden in BUCK DOWN TODAY, Nice wide heavy 7 Pointer. Old guys get it done !!   
    This guy has been coming around since early velvet. He came in tonight with a bigger buck that I just could not get a shot at, this buck came in to my left and was watching the other buck and I was looking for a h0le that I could shoot through and after about 10 minutes he stepped out into the clear at about 30 yards broad side slightly turned and I let the arrow fly, he spun around and ran off into the thickets and I thought he was down but waited  anyway 30 minute and sure enough he just made it out of the thickets about 70 yards away. I was with my hunting partner and we both looked at each other like OH crap, now we got to get it gutted and out of here. Knee surgery end of May is not 100% yet and it is hard to kneel down but I had my old military knee pads in the bag and they helped a lot. We got him out and on to the truck with no help from any of the  youngster who were not around tonight. Not bad for  a 70yo and 79yo COUPLE OF OLD FARTS who  have been hunting together since our Army days. It was a good day and I closed the truck door and thanked GOD for sending me this deer.   VIVAT JESUS
    p.s. He is not the giant I been watching but he is in the truck. That big boy is going to one of the Grand Kids before the season is over. AND JUST IN CASE YOU ARE WONDERING Harvest ID is 1265221a

    Been going up to Potter/Tioga county since 1981. Not much has changed up there except the bucks are bigger and the mountains are taller.  Can’t  wait for Thanksgiving.

    The usual sitting back home at the hunting club in northern Wayne county PA.  Hunting the mountains and sleeping in the loft in the shack for a few days.  Crapping in an outhouse.  It ain’t much but it’s paradise to me!

    I agree a lot is luck and I’ve gotten lucky.  But sometimes the harder you work the more luck you find.

    Eyesofthewoods reacted to Haskell_Hunter in Gun transfer question   
    If you have an FID, I would just take them.  If someone asks about them, they are yours.  If they ask where you got them, your dad gave them to you.  When?  A while ago.  Can you be more specific?  I don’t recall the exact date, but it was a while ago.
    If you are transporting them according to federal and NJ laws, and you have an FID card, you will be fine.
    The above is not legal advice nor should it be interpreted as such.  I am more of a civil disobedience kind of guy when it comes to laws that violate my civil rights.  I am also a terrible role model.

    The legal way is to transfer them through an ffl.  You can however put multiple guns on one nics check..

    Went out last night, had this guy come running in to the Deer Seance smoking stick. He's not a monster but it's unique 14" blade on the right and 3 on the left. 12 yard shot ran about 45 yards. What the pictures don't represent is that I'm a big guy 6'2" and 320# which makes that deer look like a fawn 🤣

    Got in the stand about 330pm.  Windy as hell but temps are right. The wind is gusty and it’s coming in from all different directions.  We will see if anything gets up and moves tonight.
