Yeah I was thinking the same thing except I think it's a little to big.

Fairly successful morning.. I still hunted into a( new to me)piece of state land. I came across these 2. Typically I give the little ones a pass but he hung around too long and it is the last day of mzl ..And it was fun.  ; ).
I'm glad the ice was mostly "hard" They were over a mile to the rd.. there was a beaver flow/ creek all the way to the rd..

That’s a lot of work.  Well done.  And a SERIOUS beard to boot!

Who’s ready to sz bow hunt?!? 

I couldn’t even get my butt out there today I’m guessing 1 or 2 more bow hunts is all I got left if that.

Long year and been a long time since i was satisfied with 2 tags punched...getting older fast.

Way to go everyone who connected

It wasn't terrible.  I called in help. Ha.ha..

One of my friends who is all tagged out drove over and helped me drag.. i told him it was only fair i helped him get his buck out last night.. Never mind that we drove the tractor to it.. ;) And provided a truck seeing as i drove the little Cruze over.. Except for around 1/2 dozen  beaver dams the ice was safe. We just hit land around them..

Not fun coming out of the woods and having a deer between you and the road and a car drives by and stops. Nothing bad happened but I'm still shaking. I hate road shooters!

Did you hit the dirt/snow?  Only had to do that once.

Seeing the pussycat this morning is probably the highlight of my gun season.  Never had horn in sights.  Closest thing was kicking up a buck on my way out last Wednesday.

Well, that's a wrap on an equally disappointing regular season.  Just not seeing any deer in the woods.  From my house is a whole different story! lol

Hopefully, I can get a tag filled here during late xbow.

Nothing tonight. First time sitting that spot without seeing a deer. It didn’t help that 2 other guys with permission decided to walk straight through the middle of the field at 3:30 pm. I still had a good season. I’ve three in the freezer. Onto muzzleloader!

Squat tonight...conditions were too perfect!!!
I did have this mountain lion kitten stop by. Pretty cool find alone- usually squatch has them leashed this time of year.

Well for me it is over, tag soup for only the second time in my 56 years of deer hunting.  It actually ended yesterday with an experience I have never encountered in the wild before.  In my favorite tree on the edge of an alfalfa field, white oak stand to my right.  Caught movement on the west side of the field about 100 yards out.  Could only see the backs and could nor identify.  Suddenly they came up over a small ridge in the field, two of the most beautiful bobcats, one medium size and one very large.  The two of them were hunting for moles or mice for about 20 minutes before they went up into the oaks.  It made my 2018 season.

 

To all of you guys and girls that have put in the hours and enjoyed the outdoors, please accept my sincere thanks for letting me live your hunt on this forum and may all of you have a joyous holiday season and a very prosperous New Year.

Well boys & girls it is finally over(at least here). It is sad to see it end but I am glad it is over. I am hoping they are right on their forecast for warmer weather towards the end of the week. If so I will go back at it with the bow and climber after a couple days rest. This sitting on the ground hunting is for the birds and it's been to cold and windy for me to be in a tree.Congratulations to all the members that were successful in filling your tag(s) this year.

      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
