  1. Got it done tonight! One of the weirdest hunts I’ve had. Got in the stand around 4 and boy was it hot. Mosquitoes like never before. My stand is deep in a swamp and the bugs were so thick they were biting me through my shirt. At around 6 I texted my buddy and said I had enough. He said him too so we planned to meet at the ATV trail. When I got there he motioned for me to stop he had a fawn at 20 yards and wanted to see if mamma would follow. She did not. We chatted for a bit and headed for the house. About 40 yards from the wood line I noticed a doe about 50 yards away. She saw me but didn’t s

  2. It took all of 10 mins to put a doe down tonight. My 3 year old tagged along on his first deer hunt ever and we ended up putting a stalk on this group of does. First deer with the .450 Bushmaster...50yd frontal shot on this big old dry doe. Although we didn't get the early doe season in 8R (thankfully), nuisance permits on your buddy's farm work the same.

  3. I told my buddy that if his son killed one Id butcher it for him, well I got the call around 7:30 lol. Turns out he needed help tracking so we get out there and what he thought was first blood was gut. I was very worried as we couldnt find any sign at all and theres a zillion acres of standing corn, but we got on a heavily used trail and sure enough he found blood. A short track later and we had her. He shot her perfectly but quartering to and it exited in front of her hip. We got her to my house and dismantled her in 25 minutes, shes quartered up and in his dads fridge. What a blast! Sent

  7. I've learned to stay off the phone while I am out hunting so ill post up now. I was out Saturday morning and Sunday after the Bills loss.. total of 9 hours. On the drive Saturday morning, I hit a 4 pt with the truck. I saw it coming and was able to slow way down... minimal damage, three dents, left fender, left front door and left rear door. Bummer. I stayed out for 4.5 hours or so until it got too warm for me. There was some shooting in the area but unfortunately I did not see any deer other than on the drive there. Last evening, I got into my spot and after 45 minutes or so I

  9. Well the baby of the house is officially off to school. My son and our last child is off to start his first day of UPK today . Mom road the bus with him and I met him there. He was so excited last night he got his bag packed, clothes picked out and ran to bed when we said it was time. Time goes to quick feels like I just sent my oldest to her first day of UPK and now she's a junior. Wife was a crying mess when we got home. Tried taking pictures with him this morning before the bus but he was so hyper and excited to go I had to pretty much hold him down to get a couple.

  10. 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

  14. Two more woodchucks checked out this past week. Most of my kills are right by or literally in barns. I find the .22 magnum to be the perfect medicine for such an occasion. Minimal ricochet concerns and its not too loud. My grandfather uses a .17 hmr and it seems to do the trick. I like this savage 93 with a Redfield 2-7 on top. It tends to launch the 40 grain pills the best. The old Winchester super x 40 grain jhp shoot fantastic. I remember when they were 8.99 a box a few years back. .22 magnum has become one of my favorite rounds. Has just that much more pop than its little brother Long Rifl

  16. I took my 12 year old out for a couple of hrs we seen 7 deer between 7&8 am all 25 yards and closer. He decided to bring the Xbow instead of his gun. Had he brought one of his guns he would've had his first deer. That's hunting for ya. He did get to put the scope of the xbow on one of the deer but there was some small limbs in the way. We had a good time.

  18. So my buddy wanted to fine tune his Matthew’s at 40yds and chrono it. While we were at it, I decided to finally set up the enkore I bought last year. First that set tuning system flat out works. I spent 5 min getting a bareshaft to shoot straight at 20 last year. Never touched it and had bareshaft and fletched within inches of each other at 40yds right off the bat. For those that bareshaft tune, you know how hard that is at 40. This was a piece of cake. The bow is 71lbs, 28.25 DL and I am shooting 520g arrows. It chronoed at 284 average. Higher than the bio rating of 3

  22. 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.

  24. Had a great morning first cast bang smallmouth. Then I hit a spot with pickerel stacked up in it. After the sixth one I moved on. Picked away at the smallies left them biting. The wind was blowing and I had no jacket. I’ll be back at it tomorrow morning. I took a bass home to try it was bad at all. My first time eating one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  25. The barnwood really fools them. The 8 point this afternoon had no clue I was up there and offered multiple 30 yard broadside chip shots. If only he didn't have them damn horns. Unless he puts on a few pounds before early November, I will probably hold out, with my buck tag, for one more like these two. My wife photographed them on the other side of our block while coming home from the grocery store a few weeks ago:

  30. Bought two BOCES Building Trades mock houses that my son and his classmates built during the year at the end of the school year. Changed a few things to the design including the shed roof. Clad it in galvanized siding I bought at auction. Got 25 sheets of 3 X 8 for $400. Have a second building and enough siding so that'll hopefully get done in the next month. This currently sits overlooking 3.5 acres of brassicas and about 10 apple trees. Can't wait to hunt in comfort this year.

  31. Tajmahal begins, actually tajmahal finished! We rebuilt the damaged blind from last year back in May and finally finished putting it back up today. This time it's anchored down so even Ida won't be able to blow it over! Got screw in trailer anchors from a friend and secured it with 5/16"coated cable.

  32. 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

  33. It's been an interesting summer. Not in a good way but one like I have never experienced. On a positive note, this year the farmer that works my field did no till soybeans and once they came up it seemed to draw the wildlife like we have never had before. One day in July I looked out about 7:30 pm and counted 18 bucks out there at once. I began to pay more attention on a daily basis and they stared showing up every night religiously between 7:45 and 8:30. I never saw 18 together again but there have been between 4 and 11 just about every night. I set the spotting scope up on a tripod and

  34. You resent "rich people"? I live in a town with a very wealthy population, I do just fine but am well below the average income. Because of rich people my kids go to amazing schools. The rich should be thanked and appreciated but in todays society they are vilified, its absurd. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  37. Well its almost go time. Son had been loosing his mind he’s so damn excited for deer season. He’s been shooting his bow a ton and next week I’m gonna take his hoyt in to up the poundage a bit. Today he shot the tikka 7mm-08 we picked up from @moog5050. I picked up a couple boxes of Hornaday 120gr custom lites and the recoil is so minimal and is exactly what I was looking for. So thanks to all you guys that have mentioned this caliber on other threads for a great youth gun. Watch out come Columbus day weekend!! We have a few things left to do with a couple stands down at the land and

  38. Shot the 7mm-08 yesterday at my steel target, 273 yards from a stable bench and rock solid rest. 120gr TTSX Barnes bullets. I didn’t have much time but wanted to take a few shots anyway. Three shot group.

  41. I am up and in also. Changed plans a bit, because I thought it would be too hot in the tin can aluminum truck cap blind where I planned on going tonight. I am up in the cupola of my two story blind watching over a clover and wheat plot. The wind is still blowing hard enough to hold off most of the bugs. I have a can of deet ready to go if I need it. I saw a doe right by here one afternoon last week. Hopefully, she shows up again before 8:01. Just felt a skeeter on my neck, time for a spray.
