  • Non-Typical Still in Velvet

    Well went today to take down my camera and put out another 100 lbs of corn one last time before season comes in. Luckily the non typical is still coming in quite regular. He also as of early this morning is still in full velvet. I did have the same problem as GT I have one picture of two young kids riding an ATV through my setup. The bucks were still coming in after that tho. Also as I have patterned this buck over the last month his habits are almost exactly the same as last month which would be putting him under the stand at 5:40 AM and 7:47 PM opening day. i hope I can get a stab at him opening day. Good luck to everyone come Saturday.

    Play it safe!
    He will probably be cruiseing early on Saturday and you might get busted going in early or he may be there and no light. I would suggest getting on stand around 10 am and pack a lunch! Wait him out until dark but I feel with what I know you'll have he on the ground at 1:30pm. Just a hunch! Good luck.....I'm gonna say a prayer for you!m P.S. Monty has your arrow....just goes to show....all is not lost....good omen! Remember count to 100....lol!

    Just looked at the picture up close for the time....he is right on time with the lunar minor. Have you had pictures of him around 9 or 10 the past few days? Because you know what the Major is on Saturday and Monday

    Dang!!
    What a deer man!! I sure hope you get a crack at him. Like Viper said I would probably wait until that afternoon to hunt him. I would hate to Bump him Saturday morning and make him change is daily routine. When that velvet comes off it's most likely going to change anyway so hopefully you will tag him on opening day. Good luck and can't wait to here how your hunt plays out....!

    Not sure
    I'm kinda torn between getting in the stand really early that morning like 4:45 or waiting till later that morning. I really want to go here and just get in early and sit and wait. I can get in this stand very easily without being noticed. I only have to walk through about 20 yards of woods? I hate to hunt anywhere else opening morning when I know this is here? I just can't stand to not go here Saturday morning.

    Hmm
    Yea I never thought of it that way. I guess I will just go sit where the 10 pointer is on camera at another place and see what happens.

    Well I gotta give it to ya buddy. I REALLY like the way you think. And as much as I would like you guys to come I just wouldn't be able to tell ya how to get to the stand? Lol.. but really I cannot talk myself out of not going to the NT stand Saturday morning. From all the pics I have of him he always comes from the same direction and its not the same as I come in. I just am going to get in there ridiculously early and maybe tighten up my harness and take a little nap waiting on daylight. I can slip in here and not hardly make any noise. I think if I take my time walking through the short section of woods and use my RED light as least as possible if any I can get in the stand unnoticed?
