    Big Woods Cabin Fever

    I can say the cabin fever has taken hold pretty strong over here too. I've actually got some winter trips planned that should help to snap me out of it a bit. Headed up to Algonquin Park with some old guiding buddies of mine to hit the hard water and do a little carousing. I'm planning to stop through 5H on my way up there to check in on our place and try my hand at a little predator control. Maybe give the gobblers a leg up for spring? I've pondered trying to sneak down to the Keys to throw flies at bonefish, but that one's probably a pipedream. There are some crazy cheap flights into Miami but we'll have to see how much time I can scrounge (not to mention patience from my lady). Otherwise, I'm just looking at Google Earth and Topo+ a lot trying to find that perfect travel corridor through the big woods...

    still hunting technique?!?

    A couple additions: It might be worth trying either a grunt tube or a can call and having it right in your pocket. I’ve had several mature bucks stop and hang up if I grunt or bleat at them immediately after I bump them. It might also be worth messing with a gillie suit. They’re less stealthy to walk in, but they definitely break up your profile. You can also keep that super clean on scent and store it in your pack until you’re starting to hunt. Also, to echo Buckmaster, deer where I am usually don’t bust very far. Lane Benoit has a big thing about always waiting at least a half hour exactly where you are any time you jump a big buck. There’s an excellent interview with Lane Benoit on the Big Buck Registry podcast. Also one with Joe DeNitto (sp?) Lots of good tips in both. Good luck in the rut! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Tree stand hunting in the ADK

    I use stands early season in the Southern Adks. I have a ladder stand, a hang-on stand with tree steps and an ultralight climber. I basically just use them for bow and some muzzleloader and set them during the summer along runways leading into/out of zones where I find dense sign. All on state land, but nothing far from our camp. I killed a respectable six point from the climber two years ago and was full draw on a bear this year. I’m pretty careful about scent, but I see a lot of critters. By the end of early bow I’m very ready to start still hunting, but I do love the view. Where I hunt stand hunting is kinda like anything else, you have to be cool with few sightings but also ready for a bruiser to appear at any time. I do find that burning hours in a stand helps my eyes adjust to the deer woods and helps relearn how be patient. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It's Big Woods Time 2018

    I’ve been up in 5H for muzzleloader this week and the weather has been good for movement. Snow over night a little bit stuck the AM. Cold and clear today. I reckon some bucks are gonna drop this weekend! Best of luck to everyone. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Dragging or Packing?

    I’ve also had good luck doing that with smaller deer. Never tried with a big boy though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Would love to hear how you end up liking that Badlands pack after a season. Been keeping an eye one some of there stuff but haven’t checked it out in person. Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    No need on my account. I’m sure I can dig up the specs online. Nice looking boots. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I second that on the sloshy feeling. I’ve got a set of mucks I’ll wear during spring turkey if I’m on a farm but I never deer hunt in them. I’ve also been curious about the Lacrosse rubbers. Heard a lot of guys swear by them and the simplicity seems appealing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Dragging or Packing?

    That was my initial thought, guys that hunt “backcountry” sections multiple miles from roads/trails/vehicles etc. That said, I’m always down to see cool camp and farm toys! Haha. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Anybody here ever tried Schnee’s? They’re not cheap but look pretty sweet. Like Bean Boots with a more legit tread. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Wool clothing

    That’s been my experience too. I’ve got them with the goretex/thinsulate liner and they’re bone dry and warm. Sometimes I think they’re warmer than an insulated boot because they’re basically layered. I have definitely wiped out with them on a few times but a lot of times, snow on an incline is not good. Generally the dry/warm/weight keeps them in the mix for me. It’s a nostalgia thing for sure too though. Fond memories of my dad and uncles lacing them up when I was still a kid wearing whatever hand-me-downs came from my cousins. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The “Tracker” crew, Joe DiNito etc, will tell you it’s not even worth going out unless you’ve got solid snow. I’m personally itching to get out the minute my tags are legal but those guys slay some beauties just getting on big tracks... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
