Recommended Posts

Mixed.. I've been a victim of murphys law for the last couple weeks.. But in spite of it all, I've had some pretty good sized bucks in my cross hairs.. Just couldnt tak'um.. Had a few does come in  but for one reason or another havent been able to connect...   

 

with the worst behind me,  I think things are gonna change real quick... :cupcoffee:

I haven't seen a deer from any of my stands yet. Plenty of sign but the woods are full of food and they are not moving much from the bedding areas during shooting light. The trees are dropping nuts everywhere

and if your not careful you can get a nasty bump on the head from them. Weather needs to cool down more too.

This is true.. I have one spot where the deer have been walking  right by the corn pile and havent touched it in 3 weeks...

Ive passed on 12 bucks so far this year. All 6 point and smaller. I know some were probably the same but there were 12 opportunities to shoot. Ive taken a doe so far. Im not trophy hunting just being particular so far. If it gets down to it the biggest body  buck is getting it...

Ive been down for the count since Friday night with bad bronchitis. its kicking my ass!!! Hopefully the meds will do the trick and get me back into the game

Strange night in the woods this evening. I had a hawk fly straight at me and within five feet from my treestand before I had to wave my arm to get it to change course. I almost cuffed it. It landed in the tree next to me and we had a staring contest for about 2-3 minutes before it decided to leave.

 

Then I listened to two coyotes yap at each other until I climbed out of the tree. No deer.

Shot 4 doe and not have seen a buck to date.. The worst season so far.. I scout and relocate stands almost every afternoon .. Need to find better property...

 

Hopefully people will book the boat for fall Stripers.. Maybe take a my mind off the agony of no shooter bucks

Frustrating.  I've got a great acorn stand, but the 1st weekend all I had were bucks and bears.  Was out of town the 2nd, and will be this weekend as well.  Last weekend I didn't see a single deer OR bear.  I've got a lot coming in at night, with the harvest moon not helping and hoping their patterns will change up a bit.  I need to get some deer in the freezer!  I've got some other spots I want to scout and to start working on my bear spot.

Got my first sit behind me today. As I was walking in in and sweating profusely , I was thinking I probably have better luck getting hit by lightning or finding a winning lottery ticket on the ground then shooting a big buck. L.O.L. By the end of the sit I had my confidence back. Always gotta stay focused in the pines, so easy to get discouraged.
