  1. That's the truth!! Along the same lines, I get so annoyed when people say to me, "Yeah, but you get deer every year!" They have NO idea how much time and effort I have to put into it to tag a deer!!! I'm not blessed with having a lot of deer around, so I have to bust my ass to get what I do. This year, conservation is more important to me than filling tags and my freezer. There are only a few does around, and even fewer fawns, so I'm not planning on shooting does, hoping to help next years recruitment. My son and daughter have both agreed, they don't want to shoot does either. I have already lowered my standards significantly since bow season on what buck I will shoot, but....
  2. Hopefully the dirtbag learns his lesson! I still wish they could have gotten him for trespassing!
  3. Happy Birthday! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Thankfully I didn't start bowhunting this fall until 10/15, otherwise I probably would have been burned out long ago. The damned deer are just completely nocturnal! My cam check yesterday confirmed that. No travel necessary between bedding and feeding areas... Step in, step out! No reason to move during daylight hours. Can you hold a light steady? LOL
  5. Congrats Grampy!! That’s awesome!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. At some point, I gotta have sense enough to wave the white flag. I wish I didn't buy my muzzleloader license, so I could put my season out of it's misery at the end of gun season. Wayyyyyy too much effort, for so little return. Hunt #60 in the books...
  7. Are you thinking of Paula? She shot a buck opening day. I might be mistaken, but I thought Cynthia shot a doe. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Had a nice red fox pass by at 15 yards. That’ll probably be my excitement for the night… Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Trespassers suck! Just feel entitled, I guess! Sadly, like so many others in todays society! Sorry it ruined your plans to hunt! I know your hunts have been limited recently. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Went to one stand that I haven’t hunted yet, but the wind wasn’t cooperating. Switched to plan “B”… Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Sounds like some nasty weather coming tomorrow! Rain and 50+mph wind gusts.
  12. I wonder if the DEC will be posting the counties that opted out somewhere on their website?
  13. Took a look at trailcam pics when I got home tonight. From 8 cams 99% of the pics were night time. Decent amount of deer, just moving at night. Only bucks were 3 small ones. Funny that the nicest of the 3 bucks has been in my back yard just about every night (~40 yards from my house)! LOL Looks like some chasing on 12/2. And actually, that was ~50 yards from my yard! LOL
  14. Glad you put him out of his misery. That hurts just looking at it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Checked cams on my way in to the stand. Decent amount of tracks in the trails, but probably all night time activity. Going to wait until I get back to the house to check the SD cards. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. You and me both Jay! I'm sticking mainly to evening hunts. Sucks bad enough when you go out repeatedly and not see anything, but it's even worse dragging my ass out of a nice warn bed for absolutely nothing. Evening hunts are much more convenient for me and I look forward to them after being cooped up in the house all day working from home. If the trailcams showed any daytime activity it would help, but just nighttime.
  17. Sunshine and blue sky! This is a whole lot better than yesterdays sit, with hurricane winds, pouring rain and sleet! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Thanks, but let's be honest... it's stupid! I hunted all last gun season and ML season, before finally seeing my first deer, a doe and fawn, on the very last evening of ML season. I'm not even sure if I would shoot a small buck or a doe if I saw one. I might, but I would probably regret it later. There's really, not enough deer around here to spare any. I'm not getting too frustrated, as I really don't care enough if I get a deer or not. Just putting in stand time and if it happens, it happens.
  19. And the rain just couldn’t hold off until 5:00 like the weatherman said!! Oh goodie… Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Decided to go to a stand after all. Big oak that’s not budging in the wind. Doesn’t appear to be any dead branches anyways. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. That's exactly why I'm hesitant! I've had close calls in the past too. If I go out, I think I'll sit in a hedgerow and watch a winter wheat field.
  22. Mighty windy out there this afternoon! Thinking about taking taking the evening off... or not.?
