LIVE From The Woods 2019 - Lets hear stories and see some pictures!

Recommended Posts

I am out with the shotgun since morning. Took a walk at lunch and saw 6 does. I am just too slow, they ran past at about 50 yds and stood at around 83. Too far for me. Walk back to the stand and fresh tracks within 50 yds. Still have a few hours.

Saw about 16 today. I bumped 2 in the morning that circled around on me, but I passed because they didn’t give me a shot I wanted. With the shotgun I would have shot, but not with the muzzleloader. Then around 1:30 I had 14 deer come in single file behind me. Shot the lead for that turned out to be a doe fawn.

When I shot they scattered, but only ran 15 yards. I was slow to reload cause of the adrenaline, but once I reloaded they walked off. Not mad cause I had a long ass drag to the car. Don’t think there was a buck with them, but you never know. I shot the first one I could, but now I’m wishing I would have waited. Either way I’m happy

Congrats AT! I took a fawn with the crossbow this year. We took three other adult deer and we are going sparingly on the fawn to make it last - so tender!

Keep it going! Still have tags?

You should! LI has more deer than we know what to do with so taking a few fawns wont hurt the population, and you know that we dont have problems with doe tags

Well when we shoot a deer we have to bring it in to the check station so they can age it and check it out. If its legally tagged as a doe, they give you back a doe tag on the spot. So I still have 3 tags that I can use, but two of them are basically unlimited doe tags

They changed this law...you only have to email a photo of the doe/tag and you get replacement tag in the mail. You can still take her tagged head to Ridge to get it on the spot, of course. 

Def going fawn hunting!! Hope to get the opportunity Saturday.

If you can wait for the tag, you no longer have to go to Ridge. You still can of course, but you don't have to.

I was told that if you shoot a deer on state land with a gun, they want to see it and you have to bring it in? Either way I have to go to ridge

Perhaps. I really didn't care about that because I have 3 tags left (1 doe, 1 either, 1 buck :crying:) and only one weekend. 

Things will be different next year, especially if i start taking doe fawns lol. I will have dozens!

I have three young deer in the freezer from this season and my family comments on the difference between their meat and meat from a good buck (3.5 best guess) and 2,5 year old doe. I’m a bad judge since I know which packages are the young deer.

I’m up for what will be my last day of this season. Not sure if I should post here or 2020 thread lol. Hope to get something before the rain sets in. Gonna sit at the edge of a plateau overlooking a busy travel route. Can’t wait to set my stand here next season.
