Climbers are hard to nap in. 

 

Squirrels and chickadees so far for me. At least the rain stopped in 7R.

Nothing but pheasants cackling up in the field so far. Seems like there are still a lot of leaves on the trees for Nov 2? Prob because we haven’t had a real frost yet.

Look on the bright side, with all this rain you can sleep in a little longer and take your scent-free shower on the walk in to your stand.

Sure has. That could be the answer. Between my buddy who’s out in Kansas right now, my old boss and a few other buddy’s, there’s supposedly a boat load of big deer running around out there this year. Must be a good year all across the Midwest.

Not a single deer seen so far. It’s really pouring now. Feel like I’m gonna be trapped in this ground blind all season if this rain doesn’t stop.

It could be. It could also be with the invention of cell cams and how they are becoming more popular and widely used. Think about it. Now you can get real time pics without have to go in once a week and pull cards and spreading your scent. It makes it easier to pattern big deer without alerting them that they are being hunted. Compare it to reading a week old newspaper or going on the internet and reading about a news story as it happens.

Market penetration on cell cams is likely to be 1-2% or less right now. Long way to go toward major impact.

Wet springs have a direct correlation to larger antler growth. I forget where that data lies, but it's been proven in quite a few scholastic studies.

Finally back in my home stand...no rain but the wind is blowing backwards!  My stand overlooks part of my 3D foam course...do you think my zombi deer is helping or hurting...debating with myself if I should move it...or find a head for it...(horns or no horns)...thoughts?

Good morning everyone!  Hey you guessed it, iiiiiiiittttttttttsssssss raining out side.AGAIN!!!!!

This is really getting crazy. A couple food plots are now under water. A small feeder stream that we use to skirt a swamp, is now very wide and waist deep. Have two prime rut stands, that border a swamp that are surrounded by water, no way to get near them. Tractor and ATV roads are all a quagmire and mostly impassable, without creating deep ruts. Even hay fields have standing water in them, that look like ponds. All the ridge slopes are muddy and slick. 

Have never seen this place like this, at this time of year. Almost like a rainey warm up, in early spring, with a deep snowpack.

All this, WILL effect the deer movement on our property to some extent. They can't bed in the swamps because there are very few, if any, high spots left to bed on. So they are pushed out to the next available thick stuff, to bed in no doubt. But we are not set up for that. Now it's up to us, to figure out all the changes in deer movement. Just an added challenge, to an already challenging season so far. 

Success will be all the more sweet when it happens this year!  We are up to the challenge.

i think i have this same issue on our lease.  It is already a wetlands and with all this water its now a frogpond.  Its really thick and a great bedding area but is more of a swimming area now.  Tough year.

Need the Extinguisher grunt tube to steer him right where you want him. Just saw it on tv so it’s gotta be true.  
Nah you need one of those VECTOR grunt tubes like me and Larry! They're the real deal

If I don’t get a buck tomorrow in rain and wind, I’m banking on Phade’s Sunday Funday Buck prediction.

My guess would be every deer may react differently to a headless deer/or even a decoy with a head. As would one with antlers, one buck may want to fight it but no horns and one might want to breed it

I can’t stop thinking about moving my stand, steelhead fishing and 2 McDonald’s sausage McMuffins.

 I think I made a mistake moving it from my usual spot.

      The procedure below to carry the bow is detailed below:
      You have to use a cotton towel or something similar. You have to wrap it around the bowstring. Doing so ensures that it will not cause an injury with the bowstring coming in contact with your body. It will not be that sharp either. Once you cover the bowstring with the towel, you have to wear it like a sling. So that it will not fall away from your body. The best way to cover the bowstring is to use a large enough towel. You can wrap it around twice as well. When making a sling out of the cotton towel, you have to ensure that you tighten it to get a snug fit. In that case, it will not slip away. Consequently, it will remain in place. When using this technique to carry a bow on your back, it is essential to practice before going in the wilderness. Only when you can move briskly and without noise using the scanning mechanism should you go ahead with it. To remove the bow, you have to hold it at the bottom. After that, you have to slip it over your head as well as arm. Doing so ensures that you can remove it quickly. When trying to focus on a prey, you need to remove the bow quickly. The technique for removal that we have highlighted above can certainly help you do so.

      Just want to relay an experience I had this weekend regarding hunting regulations and other hunters.
      I've had several  hunter's tell me last weekend(10/12/2020) that muzzleloader was open, it is not. I also had two other hunters last weekend confront me as to why my son was carrying around a rifle and hunting deer. I calmly explained the youth weekend and the rules around it. After that everything was cool and we continued our hunt.
      I know at the end of the day we're all trying to participate in a sport we love and maybe harvest some game. My thought is to just make sure you're up on your local hunting regulations. Not just so you are within the rules, but also so you can assert your right to be where you are, hunting the way you're hunting.
      I know when I have been operating outside of the regulations I have appreciated a person respectfully correcting my ignorance and I try to pay it forward by being informed and respectfully educating when required.
      Thanks for listening, off my SB...

      Hello,
      I am in the process of purchasing my first rifle to go hunting deer for the first time.  However, I have received contradicting information regarding the types of rifles that are legal.  Based on what I have read, it appears that I am able to use a bolt-action rifle with a pistol grip and a detachable magazine which holds 10 rounds.  However, I have been told that this is not the case. I can't seem to find where this is stated.  Can any one here provide me with some insight into this? I'd really appreciate it.
      Thanks in Advanced,
      Alfredo
