Group of 3 doe and 2 fawns came threw 20 Minutes before end of legal. Was stuck in the tree til 20 Minutes after legal waiting for them to get far enough away. Surprisingly no buck on their trail... with their scent around should I sit there in the morning if wind is good?

Depends where you think they're walking to/from. If you have an idea where they eat and where they bed then they might have a buck follow them back to bedding

Gonna play the wind and hunt on the ground tomorrow am.. bringing a blind chair out with the xbow to sit behind some down limbs.

I know where they're bedding and unfortunately my stands are not on their routes this year!! Had my target buck at 75 yds yesterday he literally walked under the tree my deepest stand was in last year lol.... That's hunting

Great all day sit. Probably a record for deer seen for me, all but one were does. Lone buck chasing a doe way too fast for a shot attempt. Does got passes all day. Shortly before 4pm, group of does woke up and started to.make their way towards me. I reached into my pocket for another pass, but my doe tag came out instead. Went 20 yards and piled up. e1f22e99ed1ad8529247f232258ccff4.jpg

Hysterical...I actually added the word “making” after sausage ....I initially only wrote “chefs sausage video”

Come on no ones up to hunt?

I’m 15 min away from heading out the door for my last Bow hunt of the year. Hoping to sit dark to dark for this one.

I'm ready to head out!!  Should be a fun day! It's the "Magic Day" of Nov 10th!!!! Most years on this day, I'll see something to remember!

Hopefully a big fat doe will come to me today! Not quite as cold as yesterday morning.

Best of luck to all heading out!

 Sat last night and drew (not Andrew) a blank. We still have snow in the woods and I love to bow hunt in these conditions. 
 

This could be my last sit for archery, hopefully it is eventful.

Yesterday was a long cold all day sit, only seeing 4 doe with the last 2 at 1145. Then nothing else rest of the sit. Hopefully today will have some bucks moving through

I'm in for my last hurrah. Quiet out here this morning. Last weekend I saw 18 deer in 5 hours on stand. I'm up to 12 hrs this weekend and I've seen 2. Unusual for this area.

String/Cable.  He was unloading it in the dark and not paying attention.  


Sorry to hear. I’m writing Cuomo now for a ban on these dangerous weapons and a return to verticals only.

Finally just laid eyes on a shooter this season....nice mature 8Pt. Chasing 2 doe, ended up coming by me at about 15 yds. Drew back but no good shot opportunity the two times he briefly stopped. Tried grunting him back but no luck.

I sat dark to dark yesterday ended up seeing 3 small buck and 8 doe. 2 really big sized doe trotted in to my 20 yard shooting lane at 8am but never stopped for a shot just after 4 I took a small doe.

My first deer with the crossbow.

23 degrees up in the tower with my daughters boyfriend. His first ever hunt. Crossbow ready. Had one walk down down ridge before legal light.

Hope he’s a good guy and doesn’t suffer an unfortunate hunting accident

Just got back into town this weekend.  Sat in my “under-ground blind” last evening and in my “nest stand” this morning...still waiting for a deer to come by.  I hunted the Massena area last week and saw more deer in a single sit then I typically do all season at my house...unfortunately they (at least the close ones) were all doe...no doe tags.  I had several come within 10-15 yards (I was hunting on the ground).  On a side note, I trapped several coyotes, fisher, and a bobcat.  Good luck!

Just had a 8pt come thru the plot, gave him a few grunts and bleats, could have gave 2 sh*ts, completely ignored them and walked towards a bedding area.


Switching gears to habitat improvements!
