  1. I got into my stand around 12:30 and all my neighbors decided to sight in their guns around 2:00. Nothing like waiting till the last weekend.
  2. Big 8 point just trotted along the edge of my field before ducking into the woods. They're moving this morning.
  3. I had a trash panda pass by around 6:15 and a small 4 point at first light.
  4. Up and in. Hopefully some bucks will be out freshening up their scrapes and chasing this morning. Good luck everyone
  5. So, while I was eating lunch and staring out the window, I noticed this. That buck must have made it this morning. My wife finds it amazing that I can spot a rub from 150 yrds away but can't seem to see the crumbs I left on the counter.
  6. On the "Map Editor" tab you will see an arrow with "Trace" under it. I typically start by hitting the symbol that looks like crosshairs. This will show you your current location. then i hit Trace and start moving. when you are done it will ask you if you want to save the "trace".
  7. I've heard the same thing about there being a shortage of bins for the apples. My wife works for a farm market and the owners have stopped picking because they ran out of space and could not get additional bins and many of the pickers are leaving. On a side note, I have plenty of room in my field if anyone is looking for a place to dump a few 10-wheeler loads of apples..
  8. Live from the home office 2022. I was on a conference call at 7:30 when my wife came in and said there was a buck out in the field. I jumped up grabbed the bino's and head out. It was a nice 8-point that followed a path the doe normally use. I'm glad my camera was off for while I was on the Teams meeting!!
  9. I use HuntStand and just like all the others the lines can be close but not exact. I had the land surveyed when i purchased it and I have plotted the survey markers on HuntStand. The lines are definitely different, but this probably has more to do with the accuracy of the phones GPS and the amount of cover. Most smart phone GPS' are only accurate to about a 15' radius if there are no obstructions. Once you add in thick tree cover that radius can increase quite a bit. I like HuntStand for some of the other free features, Map and location sharing is great when you are out with other hunters, and you want to be sure you are not each other's line of fire. or if someone gets lost or just needs assistance getting a deer out. I also like the "Track" feature that allows me to walk or ride a trail and accurately map it out. I have found that many times I was not where I thought I was.
  10. Got in late and decided to clear a few lanes before I sat. 15 minutes after I got situated my target 8 point walked in just out of range. I grunted it in twice but he just wouldn't come in the last 10 yards I needed. Tonight really recharged my motivation. And I found some fresh rubs and scrapes. Good luck to everyone going out in the am. I'm on Dad patrol until the afternoon. Maybe I get the kids to help plant my last few apple trees for the woods orchard.
  11. Looks like a CutCo knife. My cousin used to sell them, and I received a few.
  12. I'm in the same boat, I will be in SLC the first week of Nov. and it's killing me.
  13. My FIL has always been a fan of hunting from the ground and using natural cover. He looks for sign and finds a clump of trees or a pine with low lying branches that will break up his silhouette and tucks in there using a turkey seat. The thought process is this method is less intrusive and allows for quick adjustments based on the sign. I'm not going to lie, I'm starting to see a distinct advantage in that. Last year's buck was taken that way. I followed some fresh tracks and setup my chair behind some trees and 20 minutes later he walked 20 yards in front of me. I have no intention of putting in a stand where I found the rubs this weekend. I've already located where I will sit and if the sign changes I will move. Very low impact and I'm not alerting the deer.
