LIVE From The Woods 2018 - Lets hear stories and see some pictures!

Recommended Posts

Nice weather this morning for a sit.  Nothing but barking red squirrels and a few gray's running around.  Around 9:45am I decided to sneak around a bit, heading over the hill to a big area I can view.  I heard a couple quick snorts and saw flags........they were south of me and that nasty north wind gave me up.  They made a big circle and one stopped in a spot where I could only make out some brown hair.  Finally after a good ten minutes she took two steps and was wide open.  I glassed her quickly with my binos to rule out any little spikes that could screw up my day, all clear, just ears.

I took the shot at about 90 yards and she flopped over.  I started to drag her uphill but after about 60-70 yards I changed my mind and made a call.  My buddy was going to pick me up on the lower road but first I hoofed it back to the truck and left most of my clothes, gun and binos.  Changed boots and headed back down the hill to get her down to the road.

Nice doe, 1.5 years old but maybe older.  Didn't weigh her because if I did, I'd have to tell you. :)

Not a fawn, thankfully.

I might have a mental problem,i lost three does this hunting season,more than my prior 7 seasons combined. 

That has to be some sort of sad record,i will do a serious re-evaluation of my equipment and skills before next year. 

I value not having my prey suffer,and that has not happened this year. 

This does make me appreciate how things have worked out in seasons prior.

Not sure of i was just lucky or what happened this year.

Shit happens only one way to get off the schnide...get zeroed then put 2 holes through the long ribs

31 and a little wind. First sit without the ground covered up in snow since the last week of bow. Looks weird lol. Can’t remember ever having a whole Gus season with snow.

It's coming down good in 9p,  I'm not missing my last hunt of the year because of some rain. I know I'll regret it if I pass and just drive home.

Hearing you guys talk about rain has me wondering if or when it'll get here. Nothing yet. 33 degrees, dry, and a very slight breeze.

 

As mild as it is, I thought for sure the deer would be moving. Nothing yet and I haven't even heard any shooting.

Just had this big weasel looking creature come through the pines and slip into the creek area.

 

Big and all black with a bushy tail. About the size of a coon but longer and thinner. Currently google searching. Thoughts?

      Hey everyone! I'm Louis Backlas, and I'm from Wyoming county N.Y. This past fall I entered the largest deer hunting tournament the hunting industry has ever seen. The Bone Collector North American Whitetail Championships. In this tournament, there was 14 different regions in the United States. Region 1 being New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Winners of each region qualify for a hunt in Kansas at Wicked Outfitters and will have a chance to win $50,000. I was blessed to be the winner for region 1! Pretty Excited here about this! I wanted to invite all of you N.Y hunters to watch my latest video that was uploaded to my YouTube Channel, Cross Over the River Outdoors. In this video, I will take you on the hunt that qualified me for the championships in Kansas coming this September! After watching the video, Please give my YouTube channel a follow and you can also follow me on Instagram and Facebook @ Cross Over the River Outdoors! Send some prayers my way ya'll!
