Like the Great one once said “you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take “

easy gun kill, but too heavy to risk an arrow through it. kept waiting for a clear shot just didn't happen. maybe in a few days.

Well I think it's about time I put away the fishing poles and start getting back in the woods and on the forum!

I've been patiently waiting for cooler temps and looks like a beautiful cold front coming in.... nice and rainy on the front end means a lot of pent up activity on the back end once it clears out. I'll be out Saturday pulling cards and looking for the hottest scrapes I can find to sit on Sunday and Monday. My cell cams started lighting up the last two nights with scrape activity so decent chance the weather gets the bucks up during day light to freshen them up. I know no one likes to get wet but scouting in the rain is honestly one of the best moves this time of year - the deer don't hear you and your presence washes away. 

You can't hunt till Monday I want you as my 4th week pick

man this weather sucks. Saturday morning or this evening were my best shots this weekend with all the kids football stuff and well, it doesn't look like it's going to work. On the road the next 3 weeks for work too :(

My Man!!    :good:

Too many just wing shots, hoping for the best. I've seen it all while tracking for Deer Search. Enough can go wrong on a good shot opportunity, much less risking a poor one. If it ain't right, I ain't shooting. Would rather let them walk, than take an iffy shot ! Sometimes, just minutes, or seconds later, the deer will offer a much better shot? If not, perhaps another day.

As hunters and sportsmen, we owe it to the game we hunt. To know our own limitations, and make that shot the best that we possibly can.

Looking at the weekend weather has me less than excited. I'll probably get out tomorrow morning (assuming it's not pouring and/or lightening) for pheasant with my father in law and a few buddies. The weather might keep back some of the crowd that has become the norm on the pheasant opener. Then Sunday, assuming the rain isn't heavy, I may sit on a field edge in the morning. I have a West facing stand overlooking the beans and that stand would be perfect for Sunday's West wind.

Never played in my life before this summer, now I’m golfing instead of hunting. It’s an addicting sport!

Funny I played for the first time this summer too, been out 6 times now and have a full set of clubs… I’m in trouble with another hobby in the mix

This weather sucks...Got up this morning to a downpour then rain predicted for the next few hours with about 2 of them downpours. I don't mind getting wet but not a fan of bowhunting in downpours. Looks wet all weekend.

Good rain gear was the first thing I packed for hunting next week up north.  Maybe I will put on my new chest waders, goretex jacket, electric tape over the muzzle of my stainless steel inline, and still hunt in the morning Saturday.   
 
Back to the house for some hot soup with the inlaws, then out to the pop up blind until 1/2 hour past sunset.  Sounds like a good plan for this meathunter.

If I could gun hunt I’d be doing the same thing!

My remark was 100% joking

Live from the driveway. Heading out to pick up fish fry for dinner I had to stop halfway down the driveway for five deer in the driveway. Waited till they cleared and headed on down. Wouldn’t you know it, the sixth one launches itself out of the brush and into the side of my truck. Luckily, we were both going pretty slowly so no damage to either one. Pick up the fish fry and come back home and all six are spread out across the driveway. Two nice big doe that I wouldn’t hesitate to take, just not with the truck!
