  1. It depends....wife if I am going to be late, which is typically the case, since 95% of the time I arrow deer late in the day. Processor if close to closing time to see if he will stay open for me....particularly if the weather is warm. Next would be a text to long time my hunting buddy followed by a post to this forum. Only shot I wall hanger, so in that instance I called my son to share the moment and take photos. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  2. Congrats Crappie! When you get a chance post up some details of where you hit the deer. The wound in the photo looks decent shot placement. You obviously did the right thing by giving him time. Great buck! Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  3. Tough year for sure....but you are one tough cookie. May the solitude of the woods ease your burdens and clear your mind. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  4. X2 on the semi-auto in 20 gauge for recoil sensitivity. Can also try a limb saver slip on pad to cushion the stock, but it will increase the length of stock about 3/4", which may affect fit. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  5. Cyntia, how come none of the folks you push for return the favor? Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  6. In 1c hoping to see some deer. Getting to that time of day, when I've been seeing them. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  7. FWIW, just saw Midway has heated vests on sale for $40. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Wow....just Wow. So happy for those kids and parents who get so much enjoyment out of sharing their passion and traditions with kids. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Best wishes Outdoorstom for a full and speedy recovery. Hope to read your stories next hunting season. Until then, hope you and the pups rest up and have a very merry Christmas. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  10. Well you have the better part of 2 months of deer season left in 1c, including shotgun will be open on weekends in January. So you can take a break, chase some ducks and come back to deer with bow or shotgun. It's nice to have choices. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  11. Was out last Saturday and only saw does and fawns in the last hour of daylight. The does fed normally with a little doe skirmish breaking out from time to time. The previous weekend I saw a nice buck nose to the ground around 2 pm. Saw other bucks cruising the previous 2 weekends in the early afternoon. No bucks showed any interest in grunt calls. Don't know what to make of that. One year I saw bucks return to bachelor groups as early as this, but generally my buck sighting decrease in December and January. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  12. I know nothing about rock climbing, but these harnesses look more like fall prevention equipment than fall arrest equipment. To my way of thinking, you would need to be tethered close to the tree so that you could not fall. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  13. Why not do both....Hunt from a blind in the AM and from the stand in the PM or hunt whichever is more favorable for wind and weather conditions. FWIW, I have stand hunted (bow) hillsides a few times and have had deer at eye level within easy bow range. I think it helps if the thermals in the evening take the scent down hill, if the deer are expected to approach up hill or level with the stand. GL whatever you decide.

  14. Did not hunt MA, but hunted Tunxis state forest in CT which is next to Granville state forest in MA. Saw a few deer over the years, that was when I first started hunting, but never connected. Supposed to get some snow on Monday. Good luck! Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  15. All my bow bucks have been taken in the PM, mostly the last hour before sunset. Over 95% of my hunts are PMs, so no surprise that I have not killed bucks in the AM. I have not kept track of dates, but they ranged from 10/1 to 11/25. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
