  1. This is exactly my thought as the video says. Keep the does happy and the big bucks will follow. I’ll kill a doe late season for meat. 2 maybe.
  2. What’s the thoughts on taking a doe or does early season or late? I could have put this in deer hunting section but felt it fit better in Bow Hunting. I also realize that much may have to do with how much time you have as a hunter and access to land to hunt. I’ve always felt that I can take a doe even late in gun season therefore I don’t take a doe in bow season because the doe I kill early may be the doe that brings the nice buck past my stand in the November rut.

    I got the vxr28. Love it. I had a Halon but this is even more stable I’m slowly dialing it in. 4 shots adjust pin at 12 yds 4 more shots. Put it away for a day or so. Repeat. Just moved out to 25 yds tonight. 4 shots and not bad. Put it away. Shot again tomorrow. Not in a hurry.
  4. I’d try to use a tree as close as possible to the entry of The thick area. Try using this the second half of the month October. Don’t go in earlier than this. Use some doe pee with just a touch of estrus (like a drop or two) when you have a north wind. Set up the wick out in front of your stand about 30 yds but past you a bit so he has to walk past you. Get in extra early. No decoy.
  5. Straight Arrow Archery in Saquoit just south of Utica is an excellent place to shop. They carry about 5 lines They have a 25 yd inside range Too. I’ve bought 4 bows over the years from them. Knowledgeable
  6. We had 2 different rain spells this week nothing big but a couple hrs each time.
  7. Hancock Seeds are great. Turnips and daikon radishes went In last Sunday morning and 4 days later and their up. In both plots.
  8. Just completed the food plots. About 4 acres total. 2 acres Hancock Seed Reid's field corn which was about a month behind the area farmers plus some Hancock Seed Ripper Peas, Daikon Radishes and Purple Top Turnips, Evolved Harvest oats mix with brassicas and Evolved Harvest 7 card stud.

    Anyone buy the Mathews VXR? Thoughts?
  10. After 20 years I still use a Truglo single pin pendulum set at 25 yds. Go from 10-35 yds
  11. daikon radishes - takes a beating and keeps on growing. Deer were in them all year fromAug through the season
  12. This corn was planted 4 weeks ago by tilling, fertilizing, dragging a cultivator to create furrows and then broadcast corn from my 4 wheeler broadcaster and fondling pulling drags to cover seed.
