  1. So since this is the first time I paid any attention to ash trees. My eyes have been on trees all day. I would estimate I have 75-100 of them on my home 12 acres. I have two biggies within range of my house. On another piece today I have permission and the ladder stand I am in is in a huge ass ash. This friggin China borer is gonna cost me a lotta ache!

  3. Up and at em. 33 and little spit of snow. Can’t remember the last time I’ve seen a deer outa this stand. Slow slow slow Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Well done! I hope the drag was not 3.7 miles! We’d of been eating a few pounds at that fire lol.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I am not saying there are not good and bad hunters with each weapon. Not my point. Just what weapon effectiveness. And I’ll take that bet any day. My 7mm mag against his bow. At 10, 20, 30, 50, 100, 250, 350 ………winner gets a hunt in your deer Mecca lol! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I’m up and in 32 here in 7a. Nice buck or fat doe would be stellar. Good luck all! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Trad bow<(less effective than)compound bow<crossbow<flintlock<shotgun<inline muzzleloader<rifle shooting at running deer<walking deer<standing deer Not too complicated, shooting at a running deer with a trad bow is on the stupidest end of the spectrum....... The next thing is why do drives have to be shots at running deer? I guess like most things folks like to generalize. Drives can be safe, slow and shots at standing still deer. Done right the deer will more than not stop often to check their backtrail. Or when given a sharp grunt, bark or even holler.
  8. I have no attachment to the tree so it will go. And it and the others are all very much still alive. Sharpening chains Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I have about half a dozen 50-60’ cherry trees to take down along with a 60’+ pine and this 80’ ash and a couple smaller ashes. Might as well take 6-10 more mixed off side of garage too. Or just put the house on the market lol. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I got insurance lol!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. That one is one big ass tree. Gotta be over 60 ft and the house is in range. More flipping trees to cut rrrr. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Unfortunately I will admit I do not know what type of tree. It is big lol. I just looked up pics of ash and emerald ash borer and there are some very similar pics. And the bark looks identical. Well that’s not good! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. So noticed this a few weeks ago and finally took pictures. I have this on a tree in the front yard. Also 2-3 trees on neighbors showing the same. There are little holes and the outer bark off. The trees it is on all seem to be the same species. Ideas? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. The snow melted out too much to tell anything. I have a pic of one yote stroll through occasionally but no pairs in a long time. And I can’t see a yote chasing a deer in I inch of snow. It’s got no chance. I have a couple more cams in the area I will check this weekend. If I catch a yote around that may sway me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. When I looked quick I thought dog but I think I have convinced myself it’s a deer. What do you think? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. 27 and real pretty out. Sitting here with my ML watching trees for a couple hours before work. Did jump one coming in. Last sit for a few days. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Just one small doe this morn and did not shoot this one. Still slowwwww Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Nice morning. Movements been scarce. Hoping for a little luck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Easing out that ravine just before dark a small flathead made the mistake of crossing my path. Meat for the freezer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Did a morning sit in the tower no bueno. BIL and I headed south to Tully. Got in at 10 and walked a couple miles until I even cut a track. Single track medium sized. Got on the track and he busted me before I saw him in his bed He had a nice setup and with all the snow on the branches I didn’t even see him. I need lessons from Buckmaster!! Way too long of a hike lol. My BIL got on two tracks and I was trying to cut off but just missed getting in place and saw the two, a doe and fawn, but no shot. Now hiked down a big ravine and do not love the spot and had the only other hunter in 10 miles walk 50 feet from me. Too late to move. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Up and in the tower nice and dry. Hoping the incoming weather will get them moving. Or the incoming weather will even develop. I have a healthy cynicism of weather predictions lol. Anyhow I’m high and dry. Hauled in the big thermos of coffee and a Turkey Sammy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
