  1. Back on August 3rd, I was up around 12ft high and I chose not wear my safety harness cause it would take longer to put it on than the task at hand. Long story short, this was the time i needed that harness. I fell and broke 3 ribs and a near compound mid shaft humerus fracture in my left arm. 6 weeks in and the union of the fracture is delayed but doctor is confident that i wont need surgery. But I sure wont be lifting any weights or PT till Dec from that left arm. Ribs still hurt if I cough or sneeze. So why am i posting this? Learn from mistake and this coming season plz we

  2. I've been wondering where this buck has been, as I haven't had him on cam since January. I was very happy to get a cell cam notification a couple days ago with pics of him! Just seeing the shape of his rack, I figured it was him, but he notch in his ear was a giveaway though! I went back to my January pics and zoomed in and could make out the notch.

  3. Awesome afternoon hunt yesterday. Went into a suspected feeding area and I got to watch 5 different deer, even had the hammer back on the first one I saw. The first one I could clearly see it was a spike at 40 yds, so it got a pass. Decent size deer too. The next two that came out of bedding ... one was a real nice buck followed by a large mature doe... They were at least 250 yds out but sure got the blood pumping. 15 minutes later, two SLAMMERS came out of a different bedding area.. they were at least 300 yds and I couldnt count points through the scope but the racks on these two

  4. This showed up in the bathroom today… apparently my wife is getting pumped for bow season too. If this doesn’t attract deer, nothing will!

  6. This whole thread shows why I’m not a fan of scoring and “ record books .” Also “ world record “ according to who ? Some group with a set of rules ? That’s not a “ world record” that’s their record . Either way scrap the whole tape measure thing and just hunt .

  7. Brought my 7yr old with me today to get the cam cards. Put him in his camo and let him carry the binos to get him excited about our scouting trip. I saw more deer today then any other single day i can remember. 81! That was 41 on the property and another 40 while driving. At one point we were walking along the field edge when a young doe nearly walked out of the brush into us. Came within 7 or 8 feet of us! Also saw a bachelor group, and one buck that was by himself that was pretty big. Here's a couple pix from our hike and one from the trail cam.

  8. Went out this morning with 2 buddies on an early season goose hunt. Had a great morning. That's me kneeling in the picture with one of my buddies. We bagged 10 geese and honestly missed a few more. It got so warm out that we quit early. All in all it was a good day. valoroutdoors.com

  10. Timing is everything. So we buy it online and she gets 2 doe permits 8P and 8S. We are joking how great opening weekend will be and up pops her club soccer schedule for fall and winter. Wouldn't you know there is a tournament Nov 20th and 21st. They are U18 all the kids are committed to colleges on the team except mine. No big deal if see missis the tournament but doesn't look good and goes against her grain. Looks like I'll be up day after Thanksgiving! lol

  13. I have to laugh at how many dedicated haters I have on this forum. None of them ever seem to address anything I post other than to say they hate everything I post. I'm amused by how easily they are triggered and their ad hominem replies, which they always resort to when they cannot refute my posts with an intelligent counter argument. They're truly indoctrinated and refuse to listen to any opposing opinions, just like they were indoctrinated to do. They seem to find it easier to think what they're told to think. No matter how many times I've offered to debate them on any issue they wo

  14. Yes, it is a K 1.5 that I bought used and had mounted in 1984. I imagine it was made in the late 60’s to early 70’s, around the same time as grandpa’s model 37 Ithaca 16 gauge deerslayer. I have a matching serial number modified choke barrel, in addition to the cylinder bore deerslayer smoothbore barrel for that gun. I only used that one time, on a grouse hunt with my uncle, when I was 14. I shot about 14 times on that hunt, at about a dozen grouse, but never so much as knocked a feather off one of them. That is why I did not mind having the receiver drilled for the scope m

  17. I love shooting my revolvers as I have many. However, I only have an optic on one of them and thats a reflex sight. I thought a long barreled .22 mag revolver with a scope would be a lot of fun for those “think i can hit that” scenarios. I have a few shooting sticks i can play with thanks for the tip. Oh, because everyone likes gun porn….Smith and Wesson 617 .22lr. Nikon spur reflex sight on top.

  18. Same here . One of my proudest days was when the youngest asked why we had “ life in prison.” I said well society has deemed that some people are so dangerous,that we don’t want them walking among us . She simply said , “ I get that , but why don’t we just kill them ?” Ah out of the mouths of babes ….

  21. So many doe around this year as we knew the population was downnand only took 3 instead of our normal 10.. crazy looking out kitchen window and seeing 11 deer in plot just in front of house... cut doe tags way back here this year so guys will need to use bow ,crossbow or muzzleloader this year to get their meat. Nephew came over from college and we shot bows this evening.. he did very weĺl 9 of 10 all kill shots one went high. 1st time shooting bow and he'd kill a deer to 25 yards no problem. Looking forward to him shooting his 1st deer with a bow or gun this year, even though hes killled a

  23. A lot of you know that I work with 4-H Youth Development. My Executive Director and I are wanting to pilot a trail cam program for our youth, and I'm looking for suggestions for cameras that are easy to set up, take quality photos, and are easy to retrieve. Now, that wish list obviously isn't exclusive to what we are looking for as I doubt anyone is looking for something that is difficult to set up, takes crap photos that you can't access We're planning on purchasing 4 cameras for this program, and are going to start with them ourselves. I'm going to take a couple, and he's going to take

  26. The cheap stealth cams are very easy to use. A few samples below of critters/deer both day and night. Sometimes the quality isn’t great but good enough for cheap and training/learning. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  32. Had to go up 20 or so feet on a ladder to fix holes in the eve of the cabin. I put on my harness and had a rope tied to the staircase. I clipped in once I got up there. It worked! Got to be safe.

  34. !! I hope for speedy recovery! I went to ladder stands years ago for increased safety, but still...regardless of height, I need to use a safety harness more. It only takes a fall of a few feet for a serious injury.

  35. Those two fawns and mom from the second set of pictures visit that clover trail everyday and are doing more then fine. Had a camera problem on my usual bow hot spot but the rye plot is getting pounded. I'm wondering what is munching on the rye. Never had so many good bucks preseason so I'm pretty happy to say the least. For 5H I think these are some pretty nice adk bucks. Opening day of bow I plan on sitting where that wounded buck is. Hope it works out.

  41. If you've hunted for any bit of time, you should understand that deer hunting makes people stupid. And I'm just talking run of the mill deer hunting. Big bucks make some people delusional. For one reason or another . . .
