Quickly approaching

Recommended Posts

Maybe im jumpin the gun a bit quick but.....

As the 2019 deer season is coming fast and the live from the woods thread is going to light up like a christmas tree(better train this kid at work fast so i can follow up on all the deer porn)...The quickly approaching season has got new topics popping up and me getting antsy sooo......

Is there anyone with a new approach to this years season different from the past?

Different preparations for the season,etc.

Accomplishment's/goals you are shooting for in the 2019 season?

Shorter/longer sits etc.

 

A few of mine..

1.Prep by shooting as much as possible

2.Spend as much time as i can in my "happy place"(always been my peaceful place)

3.Get my first mount done so i can hang it on the wall at the first house(bare spot!)

4.Get neccessary equipment for processing my own deer in the garage(needs a good cleanin before opening day!!)

5.See the smile on Jay's(turkeyfeathers) face with his first bow harvest!!!!

6.Be blessed and thankful to be able to spend time in the great outdoors.cherish every moment of the woods coming alive at day break(g/f doesnt understand it!!!)<<but im ok with that:drinks:

This year has flew by and season will be here before we know it.This post is a bit early but im pumped and ready for some woods time!!!!

Biggest change is putting more hrs in with the bow and ide like to be able to harvest a couple with it.  

Biggest goals are getting my daughter and dad deer.

Otherwise everythings the same. Have new chunks of stateland i found last year ill hunt.

I am concentrating on getting a few friends/ family the opportunity at a decent buck, a lot more of habitat work this year than years past, and overall maintenance on property.

#1 goal is always one for the freezer. But as usual am hoping to take an early doe for that and then hunt for a buck.  Would really like my hunting buddy to get one with the bow this season.  It's been about 4 years since he's tagged with bow.  He got one for the first time ever with a gun last season. 

Other goals are to get about 10 pounds of Rueben dogs and 10 pounds of blueberry sausage from Constanzas besides what I am gonna make. So hopefully will tag one with the bow cause I didn't score til xbow last season. First time in a while I didn't get one with the bow.  

The difference this year is I am not taking really any early season hunting time except for weekends. Every year I go early and it is too hot and wish I had just saved my time. 

Other difference is my approach that less is more.  By not going so much early am hoping my stands won't be burned out. Last year the hot stand I didn't hunt til xbow and three sits -3 deer.  

Still have stands to trim, 2 to move and am hoping the lease landowner cuts trails this weekend or I am buying a brush hog next week. Which I need to have anyway. 

The most exciting is that the stand where I shot my best buck and saw another one that was bigger has corn around it again.  That seemed to be the winning combo!  

And moved my best gun stand just about 30 yards and I like the setup even better and am looking forward to sitting there the gun opener.  Unless I have already tagged a couple then will have one of my buddies in it.  Had one there last year and he tagged a doe for his first gun deer. 

But am def looking forward to it!

No. 1 for me is not wounding any deer this year. Got a new used bow and getting it set up just so. I have been shooting a ton and i am going to set up more spots for my climber. Clear some lanes now,no little twigs in them to deflect my arrows. I also got lighted nocks so i can see better where my arrow hits.

As far as hunting goes,i also hope for an early doe but will save my time for late October. I walked a lot last year,this year i will sit more and try to be slick about my approach to the stands. It looks like the red oaks are full of acorns this year,that is good for the property i hunt. I hope the apples will stay on the trees longer this yesr too,makes things easier.

Big fan of lighted nocks!  Was amazed how much better it made me feel after shooting so you know placement.  And finding arrow after.

#1 goal is to finish this 3 man shed/blind so my boys can spend more time in the woods this year.
Not sure if we'll have TV like Moog but will definitely be bringing snacks, drinks and a heater.

The funny thing is two years ago I downed two early does and then never filled the buck tag!  Lol

But it was a fun season cause I passed on a few small bucks and got within 70 yards of a big 9, 50 yards of a nice 8 and rattled in a 7 point ( first time ever rattling one in). It was a great season. 

Hope you are right.  The tough one is the 5 point that stands in front of me on Oct 12th!  He quickly becomes a shooter!

Kind of in the same boat, been building this deluxe blind so the old coot can hunt comfortable again.  Noticed his woods time has really dropped this past couple years, he just can't sit for too long anymore.

Be sure to add a shelf below or next to the shooting window so that you don't miss any deer while watching TV - it requires skills in multitasking.

These are my goals for this year:

1. Spend some quality time out in the field with my two teenage boys.

2. Fill a tag or two while we're out there.

3. Hunt someplace new. Maybe in 6 or 7.

1.---I have been practicing more this year for bow than I have in a long time. I will be hunting the full season with the recurve that I had made using the riser off my father's old Darton compound. (Thanks Moog for all your assistance  on this) I am committed this year to not back off on this one for any reason.  (EDIT: and I am shooting the first deer older than a fawn that comes withing range. lol)

2.---It looks like our QDMA branch has 6-8 participants for the Field to Fork program this year. (still waiting on the registration on a few). I want this program to continue to grow and as a goal I want to repeat the success we had last year. 100% harvest. 

3.--- Drag Moog up north for the Northern Zone Muzzleloader opener. (10/19-10/20)

My goal is to get it in gear!!!   We have a new lease and haven't had any time to get down there and scout much this summer with the new granddaughter's arrival. It's going to be last minute set up in September I think.

I haven't even been out to our usual spot out in Orangeville yet, I have to pull 3 ladders to move to the new lease and this weekend is the Christening so once again... nothing will get done other than a few practice shots in the yard.

Above all, I simply intend on having fun with my sons and being thankful that I'm able to be out there with them for my 41st bow season.

I think i will use a canoe this year to cross a swamp down the road from me for a sneaky way into the woods. My property borders it,so i can leave the canoe down there. Should throw the deer for a loop.

      Hey Everyone! This is Louis Backlas/ Cross Over the River Outdoors. I just posted a new video to my YouTube channel that I though ya'll might get a kick out of! Have you ever used a decoy to hunt whitetails? If you haven't before you might want to start! I woke up one morning and look out my front window only  to find that my 3D deer target was in pieces all over the front lawn! A fired up buck decided to take his frustrations out on the target!  this took place sometime in November during the peek of the rut. Hope ya'll get a kick out of it!
