Thought I would share this...My son is down in Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay smacking down ducks yesterday and today.   They are getting Blue bills, buffies,  oldsqwa,scoters 

Good times by looks of it

We have to call them Long Tails now, PC was the end of Old Squaw

I’m not sure what kind of call they use for them but I’m sure it’s PC as the OS or LT don’t seem to care as they are DOA

Looks like it was a great day on the Chesapeake Bay.  It’s a wrap

He told me it was a 2 day hunt $175 per day per man for a 4 person hunt.  He said it was another long day but well worth it. They are driving home now.

Quiet night so far.  Heard a couple packs far off.  I howled a few times about an hour ago, no answers.  There were deer about 200 yards from the bait when I got here, they trotted off not real alarmed.  Comfy in my down gear in my flying outhouse!  Probably hang out til midnight.

Going to give it one last shot, I can squeeze 1 more deer in the freezer. Missed a shot at a buck on Tuesday, still had antlers.

Out squirrel hunting with “Old Brian” this morning...he was generous enough to let me try his smooth bore.  Black powder, tow wadding, and swan shot...doesn’t get much better than that!

It’s been a pretty crappy 10 days in the Moho house so this afternoon I told everyone to get dressed and we where headed out to hit the local trail through the woods. Spotted 7 deer in one area they didn’t care we where there just watched us for a while then went back to eating. I could have sat down and watched them for hours. It was some much needed time outside.

Some scouting yesterday and cut an approach trail and cleared some runs to a new set today with my “helpers”.

 

The best tree isn’t straight and at a bit of an angle so it might be a little tricky

there were at least 3 wall mounters on this property and I have picks of all 3 post season. There are a bunch of other nice shooters that made it. I've learned that if they're not taken during bow, forget about ever seeing them during gun other than maybe 2 or 3 rare sightings.

I wish I would have taken some pictures, but I took my old Remington pump .22 out squirrel hunting on Sunday. Never got a shot, but did see 3. I've never hunted them this time of year, so I'm probably going about it the totally wrong way. Regardless, it was nice to spend a few hours in the woods.

That push to get out of that awkward neighbor situation helps to find new opportunities!

i wish I could say this opportunity was easy peasy, but it too has some neighbor/co hunter dynamics. This one a little easier to manage and bow hunter friendly though. All that said, I didn't start hunting it till this past season as I was never driven to find new land and I agree 100% with you. Try to look at the possibilities in shitty situations and you'll be happier in the long run.

Around here , I’ve never got one tick one me hunting, shed hunting , working on the land . Never had a deer with ticks either . 
 

Worth checking them I guess, I’ve never really thought about ticks on my hunting land .

not this time a year, dog and I have had a few over many, many years and typically that's during turkey hunting sitting in a field. Have been free and clear since using permethrin though.

Same experience here however, the 8 point i shot this gun season had a tick on him. First time for everything I suppose.

Two in 49 years for me and I rarely see them on my deer either. I see plenty of deer keds on them though.
