60 yards and piled up 30 yards behind cousin.by far biggest buck!

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

6K hunter here.. I am working today and tomorrow and got the honey pass to head out Wednesday.. it is looking pretty good with a few inches of snow hitting the ground the night before.. looking for anything with horns to make it number 3 in the freezer
I am a public land hunter with no treestand/saddle so I am relegated to the ground... what would you guys suggest as a strategy... i am hunting some state forest that has some pretty good elevation changes... should I go find a ridge and sit tight downwind and hope the second rut will kick in (judging by your posts the past week it looks like the first rut is officially done) or try and be super aggressive and try and walk up on an unsuspecting buck and hope to get a shot off before I spook them
My buddy shot a beautiful 7 point in 6n on Friday and he was right on the ass of a doe if that gives you any help or hope.

All caught up. Camp sucked. Sat Friday afternoon and saw zip. Sat a few hours Saturday morning then it started pouring. I still hunted in the rain til 1130 and got back to the cabin to dry off and get a bite to eat. I hiked the hills for 2miles in the afternoon and put up 1 tail and a small doe.

Got home Sunday morning and found out the buck I missed on Thanksgiving was shot that morning. 9pt with a split brow making him a 10. 19" inside spread. I'm still a little sick about it but happy someone I know got him.

That’s a front loader of some sort, my corporate neighbor ends up with all kinds of stuff as repair collateral, bonus is that were ready to move a BIG buck anytime!

Anyone up? There was only 2 of us in line this morning where is everyone?

get that buck !  good luck.  I will prob be out tomorrow, i have the rest of the week off after today. And Thursday looks great with prob an all day hunt.  A lot of people winding down on hunting now,  so will see less and less people out and I am counting on it for a good muzzleloader season.

Way to represent! Good luck!
Most I assume are just allowing that full moon to pass through and then this place will be back to hopping!!! Anyone else notice a severe slow down of activity?!? Coincidence, I think not!

Seen the opposite. I have seen some bucks cruising around. I checked a trail cam this last week and had some day time movement. It crazy how different one side of the state can be compared to the other. Even neighboring towns at that!!

A few days before and after a full moon always SUCK for me seeing any deer activity! It’s just dead!

I’ve been talking to several guys at work about their gun season so far. No one has been seeing squat! By far the majority haven’t even seen a deer yet, including myself!

Shot a doe in the afternoon after horribly missing on a big ten in the morning. Saw seven deer total that day. Watched the beautiful full Beaver Moon rise before tracking down the doe. Any well lit night has more movement than a moonless night, wether from clouds or new moon. The day before, after or otherwise I haven’t noticed any significant change in activity. Deer still have to feed and that means moving.

yep. midweek post vacation, rain, full moon, busy weekend of woods activity. This is a good time for guys and gals to take a moment to catch up and give the woods some time to bounce back.

Hunting today is only a maybe. Just finished skinning, quartering and deboning the doe I shot a couple of days ago and now I’m inside, getting ready to butcher and pack the parts that aren’t going to be made into sausage and jerky..hoping for the last two hours.

In the stand for the pm. First day of snow. Got my snowcamo on.

Driving up, a hunter with snow camo and NO orange was walking along the road. Barely saw him with the snow falling. Crazy.
