Take em! They're supposed to be delicious. I'd love to get one stuffed. Can only imagine how much my taxidermist would love me if I brought him one of those prickly creatures or a skunk lol

I'll write up the full story later. Still trying to settle down. Basket case of emotions today. The long story short on this buck.... I missed/hit a tree 2 years ago. Didn't see him last year. Had an

Kurt did my porcupine
He probably hated every second which is the best part lol. Also porcupines are cool. Can only imagine must be a nuisance to transport but oh well. Maybe one day I'll see one. Not likely in Westchester though

I don't think it's a big deal. when they are dead, they are dead.

They are cool to watch. If they were chewing up my cabin or sheds or something like that I would not hesitate but they seem to mind there own business. For now at least. If that changes I will have to give you a call so I can get your taxidermist.

Got out this morning hoping to beat the rain that was forecasted to start after noon. It started @ 8:30 and didn't quit. Had a small spike come in close and spooked when I tried to get a picture of him. Got home and it hadn't rained a drop here:banghead:

Climber and clothes are in the basement drying out for the fourth time of getting soaked based on weather forecasts. Probably going to need another dose of permethrin even though I haven't seen a tick yet.

Easton XX75/2117 Camo Hunter aluminum

I've killed a few deer with those! Used them for years. Still have a few downstairs with my archery stuff.

One would hope so but I have picked them up in December in 20° weather with snow on the ground.

Good luck! I'm envious as I haven't been able to get hunt #1 in yet!

You haven't been out once yet? Stop following Hong Kong Phooey and the political threads and get out there! Hell man, I hate hunting in the rain and I've now done it 4 times.

 

 

One doe. Jumped her in a patch of spruce trees near a swamp, she damn near scared the $%#@ outta me. She waved bye and never looked back.

Another day of wet clothes and chilled. They said rain after 10AM. Pfffftttt! It was raining by 8.

Outer layers need a retreat of Sawyers and it looks like it will have to be Saturday after a morning hunt.

Didn't see any today. However at about 7 I heard a deer coming down the ridge towards the bowl I was in.  Shortly after i hear him destroying trees then nothing so I think he bedded down above me.  Never heard him walk away or keep rubbing trees.  Which isn't uncommon in that spot.  Then about 8 I had a deer blowing about 70-80 yards to my right.  No way it saw me or winded me it was blowing complete opposite direction i was thinking a coyote.  good news is on the way out I saw the handy work of a buck he had about every sapling ripped up and 3 or 4 scrapes.  Finally have some sign to show they are there.

Haha! The internet hasn't been stopping me. Work has been a mess. Can't get time off, and if I factor in my commute, I'm doing 75-80 hr weeks since late September. Plus a weekend here or there. Up at 4:00 am, home at 8:00 pm is kicking my 62 year old ass. Working this Saturday as well. 

Haven't stepped in my woods in 6 weeks. Hoping to get out next weekend!

Funny, I gave Kurt a few porcuppines a few years ago. He asked for them to mount for  a couple of guys that wnated them. I shoot around a dozen every year, munching on my cabin.

I'm jealous. Well not about them eating your cabin but being able to shoot one

They're munching on my raised blind.  Just like everybody said they would!

i finally have a few days off coming up.  Threatened to lick the floor at Walmart to be quarantined.   8 weeks of vacation on the books.  Max sick time, max personal. 

Hope you get out there Jerry all those hours just usually add up to time lost.

I've got about 240 hours of vac on the books. Currently scheduled to have off M-W of rifle week, but the odds of that are diminishing. We'll see. Trying not to dwell on it as my attitude goes very sour very quickly. 

Was originally thinking of retiring at 65. But if I miss most of deer season this year..  well, it'll be the last one I miss due to work.

Just wish I had the stamina of a 50 year old, lol. Six hours of sleep a night isn't cutting it.

well this 50 year old wishes he had the stamina of a 40 year old.  lol.  If you can afford to retire do it .  You wont regret it.  I have buddies that kept working and then retired and said- wth was i thinking!?  

I am working to retire at 60 def by 62.  I never take a day off all winter, never took a day to work from home during covid, missed one day for a blood clot for crying out loud.  Stupid work ethic.  I am takinbg some days off!  If i won 2nd place in the lotto i know i could walk away from it all with ease, insurance is the tough part.  Hope you get out and hunt that zoo you have there.  Dont miss those times they dont come back.

You make perfect sense, and I read you loud and clear. Actually I don't turn 62 til January. My SS dollar amount won't be too bad at that age. Anyways, I look at it as how much SS can I collect in my lifetime, not how much I can get monthly. Wife is same age and wants to work until 65 - health care is through her employer so that works out.

OK, that's enough derailing the Live thread! I'm currently living vicariously through all of you guys and have to get back to the live action.
