I think I saw a study where deer movement and wind correlate positively (calm winds = less movement, higher winds = more movement). But there must be a wind speed where their movement slows? Maybe 30mph?

Believe it or not, it’s more about the football. We just watched WVU (my alma mater) stomp TCU. Now we will watch Michigan (her alma mater) stomp Rutgers. She already said we are going to the bar to watch Sunday Ticket on several screens. Screwed up my plans to sit all weekend, but can I really complain?

Had some success! Got that 10Pt that's been on my trail cams and that I drew back @ 30 yds on Wednesday but couldn't get a clear shot before he bolted after a doe.  Turns out he's actually an 11Pt with a 1" kicker off of one of his bases.  When I tried to upload a pic, the site won't allow me too.  I keep getting this message saying, you're only allowed 337kb.  Any idea why the site won't allow me to upload one pic.

Ha! I’ll just watch the game, drink, and follow the success of others on this board (while closing one eye to focus).

Spikehorn was laying under my stand when I got here. I stopped in my tracks and he got up about 10 minutes later and walked right past me about 10 yards with no worries.

Almost got it done from a brush blind. Still shaking. Mature 9 pt.needed to take 1 more step. Held draw for an age during a 20 yd stare down. Only a neck shot and would have had to slip arrow between 2 trees. Never going to take that shot.

I am gonna try one more bow on bucket seat hunt by the Golden Rod bedding later this evening. I know deer do not move during the day through heavy fresh snow.

What?

Considering it is rut and winter is setting in early deer will be on their feet doing these bothersome things called breeding and eating.

I have shot almost every mid-day deer I've ever harvested with fresh snow on the ground, I think all of them in fact.

      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
