    Great morning for wildlife

    While drinking my coffee and catching up on emails for work I saw quite the show in the backyard. First it was 1 doe that fed through around 5:30am. Then about 20 mins later I saw a hen and 4 poults. I have never seen poults in person before. Very cool. And then if that wasn’t enough about 30 mins later I saw a spike and an 8 pointer feed through the back yard. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Still hunted the middle of the day and sat the last couple hours before dark. 0 deer, but 10 turkeys. Might have to revisit the area for spring turkey season. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Congrats! Why not gut in the woods? Less weight to drag. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I’m okay without it. Give the vertical guys a chance. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Ready to head into the woods in 9h. Mornings have been better overall this year for me so hoping to keep the trend going. Good luck to everyone heading out today. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What's for dinner tonight?

    Tenderloins and heart from the buck I shot on 10/28 this year. Grills getting warmed up right now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Hunting behind the house this morning (9h). 2 spikes walked past me around 9:00 then at 9:45 this guy walked out. Personal best with the bow! Quartering away shot, got liver and one lung. Wasn’t a pass through so blood trail turned into a grid search. He ran about 300 yards but I was able to see him for most of it because it was a crp field. Very thankful the neighbor didn’t mind me looking around on his property. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. 6:12am in the tree and quiet. 40 degrees calm winds in 9H. Good luck!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Hunted last night for a couple hours didn’t see anything. Sat in the stand from 6:15-10:00 this morning. Only saw one doe a couple hundred yards away in the neighbors field. Guessing the warm temps and rain/fog kept them mostly nocturnal this weekend Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Saw a spike at 12 yards, nanny doe and buck fawn circled my stand for 10 minutes decided to pass on her because of the fawn, then 3 doe passed off in the distance at 50 yards as the sun was going down. Great opening day. Can’t wait for the bucks to get on their feet during light. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Best Hunting Channel on YouTube...

    I found hunting public and diyhunter last year. Both great YouTube channels. Also enjoy wired to hunt. I started listening to wired to hunt podcast on my drive to and from Pittsburgh for work last summer. All those channels and podcasts are great. If you like that content try checking out the huntingbeast forum. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Where are all the Region 9 Hunters?

    9H here. Just moved to Holland last year in September. Starting to figure out the deer movement behind the house. Still plan on hunting public land around the area as well this year. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Letchworth

    Did some scouting on Labor Day. Bumped a couple deer in the river bottom. Left a trail camera to soak. Plan on returning in October to pick it up. Numbers - Not sure what to compare to since still relatively new to the park. I was only there in the middle of the day so tough to say. No plans to stay overnight since I live about 45 minutes drive from the park. I only hunted a couple days in the park last year. Plan to hunt more and hunt deeper this year. Just picked up some new arrows today. Can’t wait for October 1! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
