    Took the slug gun for a walk in zone 7 this morning. Nice weather for a walk. Saw 3 nice buck and a doe run across the road in front of me on the way to the parking lot. I was surprised they still had antlers. Then I saw 3 doe 5 minutes into my walk. I didn't get a shot off though. I didn't see anything else after that.

    Still hunting

    I'll be taking the slug gun for a walk tomorrow morning. It's gonna be too cold to sit.

    Finally a taste of winter

    I'm gonna take the slug gun for a walk tomorrow morning. Ground may be a little crunchy to put an effective stalk on though.

    H&R 20 ga. Slug

    I own both the 220 and an H&R. I prefer to carry the H&R. It's simple and it's accurate enough for me. If I ever get to the point where I worry about follow up shots, I'll take my Rem. 870 pump.

    Weapon choice for the late season?

    Slug gun. This is the time of year I like to take long, slow walks in the woods. It's usually too damn cold to sit in a tree for too long.

    Boots, socks, and gloves for the stand

    Fingerless thinsulate lined gloves + Muff w/hand warmers. Cabela's Meindl boots (800gram I think) with Heat Holders socks. If it's REAL cold, I put a pair of Arctic Shield booties over my boots while on stand.

    Flying Squirrels?

    A few years ago I started using hang-on treestands. I put 3 of them up in early August. I folded up the seat and put a black trash bags over them to protect them from the weather until hunting season. When I first removed the trash bag on each of them, a couple/few of flying squirrels would take off. Scared the crap out of me in the dark! My stands would smell like squirrel piss. I guess they used to build nests in them. I haven't put the bags on since. I also had one fly into my open backpack while setting up in the predawn. I literally just unzipped it to get something out. Then WHAM! I felt something crash into it. I was using a dim, red lens headlamp, so I didn't see what happened. I didn't know WTF was going on at first. Then a little head popped out of my pack, and took off in a flash. I barely saw what it was. I was startled for a few seconds until I realized what had happened. Funny little creatures.

    Saw a small 8 pt at 830 at 70yds. Nothing else but foxes and squirrels. I'm done in nj until January. Then I'll take the slug gun for a long walk in the woods. Hopefully there'll be a little snow.

    11/12 Check In

    Yesterday the woods were on fire with deer activity. Today, the fire is out. I had one trot by at 614. It was too dark to see what it was. Nothing has been around since.

    Just had 2 small bucks come by 10 minutes apart. One of them was definitely cruising for does. Finally some rut activity!

    11/11 Veterans Day Check-in

    In my tree for another all day sit in z7. Hopefully today will be more productive than the last few sits. I've been seeing surprisingly few deer this year and NO rut activity to date. I'm a vet. In 2002 my PAARNG unit was stationed overseas and we missed the entire hunting season. You never saw a more grumpy/ depressed bunch of men! Thanks to all the vets and to all the active duty personnel overseas who are unable to be in the woods on such a beautiful morning.
