  1. TN is on the list of states I'm considering retiring to. Looking forward to seeing your hero pics this year. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk

  4. FWW I would go the same route as First-light. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  5. I'd make the trek from LI...if timing works. Chance to meet Grampy, learn some more about Africa from Dinsdale and meet some other forum members sounds good to me. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk

  7. Permethrin. I will not hunt without it. The jet sled for after a successful hunt. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  8. Any members want to share a review of their season? Yeah, I know the season doesn't end for a month, but for most, it is done tomorrow. Here's mine: Practiced with the bow the least in 25 yrs and was not as excited as I usually am heading into the season. At the start, I hoped to find a unique buck with 1 side turned down that I had passed on last year. I hunted less frequently than usual and never saw the buck I was after. I was fortunate to kill 2 bucks this year, a first for me. I may yet go out in January, as I still have 2 doe tags. We'll see. If I don't, it was still a great year for me.

  9. Shift timing an hour or so. Wash, rinse, repeat. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  10. "Fantastic five!!! Must have been hard quartering to? Where you in a tree or on ground?" @crappyice I am posting here to respond to the above instead of the harvest thread, because...rules and all. The deer was quartering to as the entry and exit wounds show....but I would not say hard quartering to. I was about 14 feet up and the deer was 10 yards away or less. I felt that the position of the deer (relative to me) was such that the arrow could miss the shoulder and catch both lungs and probably liver, when I took the shot. I did not count on also catching the stomach. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  11. I spent some time with my grandaughter (around lunchtime) practicing archery in the backyard before heading to the woods. Got the spot I wanted (the spot I hunted Sunday) with perfect wind. Found lots of fresh sign and climbed the same tree I sat Sunday. Around 3:00 ish I saw what I thought was a 6 point headed my way browsing slowly. It took about 5 minutes for the deer to come within range, but behind brush. I kept thinking Crappie would say what a sexy six. Twice I drew and had to let down as the deer took its sweet time to clear the cover. At 15 yards, I drew and held as the deer was facing towards me. Eventually, at about 10 yards the deer turned enough to expose vitals and I let the arrow loose. The deer ran a few yards and I could see my arrow and lighted nock stuck in the ground. The deer walked in a 10 yard circle as if it was trying to figure out what just happened. Then the deer trotted off. That was the strangest reaction I have ever witnessed from a deer that had been wounded. I took compass reading of last sighting of the deer and sat wondering what just happened. Curiosity got the better of me and within 15 minutes, I was on the ground checking out the arrow and looking for confirmation of the hit. I found white hair and the arrow was covered in rumen. My heart sank. Did I blow a 10 yard shot? My mind raced as I tried to understand what went wrong between release and impact and trying to correlate that with the deer's reaction. Nothing made sense, so when in doubt, back out. I packed up, marked the point of impact and headed out. My rout would take me in the direction the deer had headed. Eighty yards away, to my surprise, I saw the deer laying dead. I was so thankful and relieved. I went from one of my lowest of lows to the highest of highs. Turns out the sexy six was a fine five, but I was happy none the less. From what I could tell, the arrow hit both lungs, liver and stomach. Not sure how that happened. Anyway, I am relieved that it was a humane kill. Better yet the deer ran 80 yds closer to the truck, so win-win. The 400 yd drag was all uphill, but I knew that going in. I may still "hunt" in January, but it will be more about getting outdoors than anything else. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  12. Around 4:00 this happened. I will write something up in the bow harvest thread for those who are interested in the emotional rollercoaster between 3:15 and 4:00 ish. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  13. Around 3:15 today this happened. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  14. I 2nd what hornhunter said. As for meet ups, there is usually 1 for the southern crew. I attended one that Chef organized a few years back and met quite a few folks. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk

  16. I am on public in 1C. This is a 1 car spot and I did not drive by any other spots, but hunting slows down this time of year usually even with season going to the ending in late January. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  17. Just bumped a decent buck and another deer as I was looking for a three to climb. Hope to see some deer this PM. Lots of fresh deer tracks in the atv tracks, so maybe the atv got them moving and I just missed 'em. Oh well , beautiful day to be in the woods anyway. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  18. Moho was kidding, so a couple of us chimed in...all in good fun. [emoji106] Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk

  20. Merry Christmas all and best wishes for the New Year! Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  21. That's a good spot. I have only hunted it during bow. Good luck! Unless things changed, you have to access from the back side during shotgun season (need 4x4) instead of the usual parking spots along the road that are used in bow season. I would suggest you scout it before opening day and get the lay of the land. Maybe get a buddy and still hunt to nudge deer towards one another. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  22. Did you take along a shotgun in case a turkey shows up. An extra turkey or 2 would go well with the 5 bucks. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  23. That dualliner looks interesting. Anyone with first hand experience with dualliner want to weigh in? Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  24. Mats are good, but lots of the bed remains exposed to damage. Spray liners can trap some stuff and are not as impact resistant as a drop in bed liner. Drop in bed liners are slippery and sometimes the ridges catch stuff. All work better with a tonneau cover in my opinion. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
