  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.
  13. I have 15 oak seedlings that I am transplanting around the land. Around my area oak trees are rare. So far 10 in the ground . I gathered up about 60 acorns last September when I visited the Waterloo outlet mall There was a huge beautiful oak tree dropping acorns I brought them home and dropped them in a bucket the ones that floated I kept I stratified them in a refrigerator for 2 months and then planted them in cups where they remained dormant until about 2 months ago
  14. Not to argue but my most recent bow kills have been Nov 7 and Nov 11 and before that was a Friday late afternoon, last day before southern zone gun opened. All the bucks on the move and looking.
  15. So counting back 202 days this fawn was conceived Nov 10 or 11 - 2019. People always ask when's the best time to be in the woods for the rut. And does the rut come the same time every year. I killed my bow buck Nov 11 at 9am. We all know that from late OCT say Halloween through opening of gun is great and Picking the best 7 days each year to be in a stand would be from like Nov 8-14.
  16. Memory cards are pricey so my question is - I plan to have 2 cards per camera and 6 cameras so are 64MB card suffice ? Also if I command the pics to deleted each time will there be an issue with corrupting the card. Anything else advice?
  17. Can you use each for different winds?
  18. I slept in cause it said rain all morning. Got up at 8 and out the door at 9. Got set and called. Moved after awhile and random calling and eventually made my way back to original spot and heard gobble. Called and heard gobble got set up and called again and another closer gobble but never did see him. Never heard a shot all morning
  19. Angelo Dundee was the master mind and reason Duran lost the second “no mas” fight. Duran destroyed Leonard in the first fight and then got fat partying and Dundee knew this and talked Leonard into the second fight with just 2 months to get ready. Like black belt Bill said he was just arrogant enough to think he could get in shape, make weight and beat his ass again but that proved too much to overcome. This was brilliant by Dundee.
