I have no private land to hunt so I hunt all public land. This morning I go hunting and there is a truck parked at the gate on this public land. Its about 640am I grab my bow and stand and start walking down the trail. I get about 100 yards down the trail and I see a flashlight flashing at me about 50 yards off the trail, ok the guy is letting me know he is over there. I keep walking down the trail because my stand site is about another 400 yards or so down the trail and another 150 yard off the trail. Well I come out of the woods about 12 and a note was left on my truck 'If you come here and there is a truck parked go somewhere else or next time I will pop your tires'. WOW!! that got my blood boiling. So I can understand him being mad, but hunting public land it happens, it has happened to me 3 times this year. The land is plenty for a few guys to be on it hunting, and if your that worried about guys walking up on your stand don't set up right off the trail and 100 yards off the road. Am I just unaware of public land etiquette and if someone is hunting you go some place else?
Only 3 1/2 days left
It's that time of the year again. Caught this 7 pt hot on the trail of a hot doe.
Killed this 8 pt. on dec. 7th at 7:45 from about 220 yards away.
Anyone seeing anymore rutting activity going on? I have seen two small bucks in the past two days.
This warm weather has killed the daytime rutting activity, hopfully Friday will bring a change in deer activity.
Shot this 7pt at 4pm while he was chasing a doe.
My girlfriends first day hunting, and takes him down with one shot using her new 243. I was more proud for her first deer than I was with any deer I ever taken.
