  • i noticed some pumpkins where missing from the fields.while out picking corn for deer bait. i found some of the missing pumpkins.some 2 to 3 hunder yards away .the deer where biting the pumpkins and carring them in to the corn field and eating them .in the safty of the corn rows.i cound see deer teeth bites in the pumpkin skin. i didnt think they would carry food like that. guess im going to used a new deer bait this year .since they like them so much.

    well this is going to sound hard to believe but. when hunting last year.a friend and i was hunting the same field 600 yrds apart.well all was good until dark. i seen coyote tracks in the field and bear tracks too. so we meet up in the middle of the feild. and sure enought.dogs started to bark.we did not think much about it .until the bastasrs where closing in on us . my guess was 10 or so from the right and 5 or so from the far left.i mean the things can move in fast. my friend looked at me and said what r u doing.well im swing my gun and flash light around like a marry go round.we cound not beleive it at first.but we was to be dinner .i mean doggie treats .so when i seen the first dog .well u know what i that shut m up .if they had a contest for fastest reloading muzzloader contest i was sure a with gun in hand we was making r own tracks up the field. back at the cabin telling r story .my friend made an observation .when he harvested a deer the day before.he never washed the blood off has boots. it was the best coyote atractent note to all hunters .tell your buddys to wash their darn boots off. sorry so long winded .but its hard to tell that story short.good luck huntng to all.

    i know the guys at n.c. sportsman headquarters read this stuff and wright stuff with the info .so how many dead deer have you guys found in your area.just deer found by you .not stories or i heard of we all can get an idea of how big of a problem this is.

    just got back form a week hunting near tarbro.had a great time hunting. but i did not see the numbers of seen in the past trips .according to n.c. fish and game the numbers r suposed to be up this year .in one week i saw 3 bucks and 42 does.not bad for 12 farms.i harvested 2 does and 1 buck.has anyone else noticed deer numbers lower then normal. i had a scary incounter with coyotes last week.a friend and i had got down from r stands.and we met on a road 1/4 mile from r stands.then all of a suddon a coyote yelped and before we knew it we almost surounded by them. im not sure if anyone has ever been attacked by them . but i was going to be the first when they got about 50yds away i shot my muzzloader .that shut them up so we could grab r gear and head up the road away from them.we didnt run but a fast walk made us feel better.looking forward to next year.good luck hunting to all.

    well its that time of year again. whats your guys opionion of the deer herd this year? the book says its great.last year to me was off.movment very slow .not as many bucks as years past.

    August 23, 2012 at 10:27am

    this deer was missing for 3 days.he just showed up with no velvet.i read some where.bucks will run off for about 24 hours rubbing trees.when they start to shed blood vessals bleed and flys drive the deer crazy.forcing the deer to keep pulled from camera 9-9-10.i know photo date is tired of changing date and time every couple of days when batterys die.i hate batterys .this year looks good .good luck hunting

    Do you think camera flash really spooks deer? And is led really bitter then the old flash? I have thousands of photos each year.big and small buck photos.I do move the cameras around.I guess to keep the deer guessing to. What is your ideas on this ?

    no dout you can shoot that far.i recomend a scope with multiple you have a reforance while first line 100 yds 2nd line 150 yds 3rd line 200 yds and so on. most muzzloaders will shot 250 yds or better.but you must practice long distance .and try diffanant ammo brands.not all ammo shoot the same.hope you get your big buck.

    A comment titled: dogs in response to a report titled: dog season

    i never hunted with like to try it some day.with that the other writer said a lot of states dont allow you to hunt with them.i can also under stand why hunters can get mad still hunting.a couple of years ago.i had a small buck on the corn pile for 15 min and all of a sudden he bolted off.well it was not a dog but a coyote.i know no the same.and just shifted from deer to coyote mode.and droped more coyote problem.i say injoy what every style of hunting you can .life is to short.good luck to all may you shoot a big one.

    i have never sat all day in n.c. but we sat form 5am to 10 or 11am .and we call it 9 am rush hour.and we see alot of deer around then.i dont know if its just to keep our minds awake and our hopes up .or deer like to move more or maybe other hunters are moving around . making the deer move.good luck hunting

    ya where we hunt in the past 2 years the farmer hired a traper to harvest dogs. near rocky mount.its funny in some areas we have had no others areas over run.up north in n.j.we shot most of the dogs the state droped off.i think it sucks the state agencys has to drop of dogs .rather then let hunters harvest the deer.just my opion.shoot m up.
