Open'n day has arrived......Good luck everyone and happy hunt'n.....Can't wait to see the pics and hear the stories......
this 10 point is coming along nicely...patiently waiting for archery season...
This is one of my favorite times of the year. I enjoy getting out early July, yuup..ticks, sweat, deer flies......watchin'em grow. gets me stoked, can't wait.........
Woooohooooo!Sunday Hunting..A reality...A step in the right direction. Thank you Your Honor!:)
I wasn't feeling well the other day, turns out to be buck fever.
Anyone hear of reports of Franklin County getting hit hard with cwd this year. I heard that it wiped out 75%of the deer population. Any word on what's what?
9 point killed in Warren county. First time taking an actual deer that I have been watching since June.
just in from the field
mineral supplements that I have found to work REALLY well......As GT has sworn by, trophy rock works well. Deer cane liquid ok. But fastest response to lucky buck......Guaranteed or your money back.... put it out and had deer respond quickly... cant wait to see'em grow
Man, I can't wait till 9/7...another to add to THE list.....
Just in from the property and prospecting is looking good. Buck fever already setting in..lol
got this pic saturday and to my surprise he has already shed. Yep, pretty sure it's a buck, you can see his goods from another angle. hopefully I can find the sheds before the squirrels get to'em.
I hunt in Warren county which has introduced a bear hunting season this year. The regs state that 'processed' foods are not permitted even for deer hunting if a particular county has a bear season. It states that 'minerals' that are used for antler growth are permitted. Question, is shelled corn considered processed or by definition is processed anything added to enhance the flavor of the product?
Just in from the dance floor.
WOW!!! double strut. Just keeps gettin better.
note: time stamp is still 1 hr behind. bad part, I was there at 9:40, I must have run'em off.

So creek, What's the rest of the story????
Congrats to everyone who scored this weekend with some nice kills and great stories.
Check this out Viper.. Ya'll know I haven't paid a whole lotta attention to that moon phase thingy.
However, over the past couple of weeks I have been looking at my Garmin and looking at the lunar phase. As fate or phase..lol would have it, I saw six deer this week during the 'mid-day' phase all within the magic window. Soooooo yesterday I headed back to the pathfinder about 10:30 to take care of some business and get a bite to eat, while there I checked the gps and the best time was between 12:04p to 2:04p so I thot I would see what up. I went to an area on the back side of a 5yr old pine thicket that borders hardwoods on one side, hardwoods and creek bottom on the backside. Earlier Sat am I found several scrapes that appeared to be about a day old thot maybe he would come back to check that status on his message board...I get back there about 11:30 and after several nods it's now 12:15p. I hit the grunt three times wait, nothing, after a few more nods, it's now about 1:20. I just happened to grab my rattl bag and thot what the heck, I rattl for about 30 secs listen, nothing, I grunt, rattl, grunt all simoltaneously for about a minute. bend about half way over(i'm sitting between a forked oak tree on the ground) to put the rattl bag back in my lower pant pocket and I hear something coming out of thicket like a freight train, I look up and it's big doe coming right at full speed, gets like 10 feet from and realizes oops, that ain't no buck like I've ever seen, did a 180 back up into the thicket.
needless to say after 6 hrs, dude never showed up. guess where I'll be at sunrise.....
Mid day hunting, hmmm, keepn one eye on the moon phase, particularly when it is under foot.
Got up early this morning and headed out and this is what I was blessed with at 10:40am.
