  1. About halfway through an all day sit and have yet to see a deer. 10 pointer on cam is keeping me motivated though Sent from my SM-J327T using Tapatalk
  2. Damn dude, hope he's ok. Keep us posted Sent from my SM-J327T using Tapatalk
  3. Congrats to all those who scored today! Sat from 230pm to dark, saw a spike, 4 pointer, yearling doe and a big doe Sent from my SM-J327T using Tapatalk
  4. I hunt in Selkirk, right by Delmar and Voorheesville. Seen some dandy bucks here but nothing like that Sent from my SM-J327T using Tapatalk
  5. Split second decision, certainly did not think it through. In hindsight, no, it was not a good idea Sent from my SM-J327T using Tapatalk
  6. That's awesome. Usually get 3 or 4 trail cam pics a year of bobcat here. Only saw one in person once, day before the season opened too. Such a cool animal. Can't wait to see pics! Congrats Sent from my SM-J327T using Tapatalk
  7. So about 50 yards into my 1.5 mile walk to my stand I see eyes 40 yards ahead of me. He takes 3 steps towards me and I see a giant rack. Mind you it's about 5:15am, pitch black. But he's locked on to my headlamp. We both just kinda freeze there for 5 minutes and he slowly starts walking away. Didn't really know what to do because it was still over an hour until shooting light. He walks into the cut corn field but it's too dark to see so I just waited there for almost an hour til light. I walk another 50 yards towards my stand and there he is, 300 yards away on the other side of the field. No way I can put a stalk on him in an empty corn field. He starts walking the wood line and I know he's got about 80 yards til he's perfectly down wind from me. I start spraying myself with doe urine but it didn't help. Took a couple sniffs and bolted. Was really exciting though Sent from my SM-J327T using Tapatalk
  8. That's a beast! Congrats Sent from my SM-J327T using Tapatalk
  9. As soon as I pack up my stuff to leave a big 10 walks by, never got closer than 75yds. Tried grunting, rattling and the can but he didn't react at all. Just kept on trucking. Incidentally all that noise I made called in a 6 pointer. I was stuck in my stand til after dark waiting for him to leave Sent from my SM-J327T using Tapatalk
  10. Another nice one down on the forum. Congrats! Sent from my SM-J327T using Tapatalk
  11. Heck yea buddy, that's a dandy! Congrats Sent from my SM-J327T using Tapatalk
  12. Just had a decent 8 come in to my rattle. Hung up at 50yds. Not sure if I would've shot him anyway Sent from my SM-J327T using Tapatalk
  13. Just had a 6 pointer cruise through, he's lucky I got freezer full moose meat Sent from my SM-J327T using Tapatalk
  14. finally bought a Sitka base layer, found them on sale this past summer. so far they've exceeded my expectations. they really do wick away moisture. I sweat like crazy and they are dry in no time. definitely gonna spend the extra dough and buy more Sitka gear
  15. my stand is maybe 200 yards from my father inlaws stand and he hasn't seen a deer and ive seen deer every sit except for 1. last year it was almost opposite. I guess deer just do what deer do
