Oneeye - Sep-30 Mobile live hunt from CtContributors to this thread:
3:55 PM LIVE from Ct*
Ok folk and wife. Back at it. New spot for season. Run and gun (bow) with climber
Shot a doe here last year. Grunted her into range. Wtf. Neighbor just shot gun. Been asking to hunt property for years. Seen signs of his trespassing. One shot. Sighting gun or shooting onto my property.
Well three more shots. Guess target practice. Hoping deer come by now
Sounds like 22lr.
Why this spot? Over ridge on my 9 is South facing slope so it's a deer bed area in winter for sure. I got doe in fall in this are. My thought is it's near a marshy swamp on my 3 and with it so dry maybe they will head there for a drink.
I would like a few more mast trees here but I see 4 good white oaks and half dozen red oaks. A half dozen hickory s dropping but probably not a draw for deer.
I was looking for a good tree and one I'm on is great for wind but a bit far for low land area they will probably stay in. May have to grunt and hope. That is if they show. I have a camera here but I haven't looked at film since August
I'll do boots but it's to show how I customized my climber. I got rubber nonslip pads with adhesive from home Depot and put on base. Much quieter and dampen sounds
Hopefully today is day. I have hunted 5 times so far and seen a minimum of two deer each time all with in 45 yrds. For various reasons still nothing in freezer.
I hunted yesterday before work. On stand an hour before shooting light. I hear deer move by me and know there is mainly three does who travel thru. I hear them. Even smell them and figure we'll there goes this hunt. But I sit for an hour after shot light. Don't see or hear anything.
A lot of BS issues at work and am sitting on stand whole time thinking about work. I figured deer gone work sucks so I'm getting down early to treat myself to a good coffee before work..
Good luck OE! Home one works by...
I stand up to leave and three deer bedded with in 30 yrds of me jump up and run away. No joke. guess that day. Work and hunting sucked.
What's solunar say for today? I had 4 deer in field across from my house when I was headed to stand at 3p today. Would love to hunt it but it conservation land . No hunting BS. so they eat every plant in field in broad daylight then when it's dark bastards come to eat my landscaping
Pretty sure saw my first scrape of the season on way to stand.
Lunar will be out at night sometimes depending on the time of month...like a crazy broad...lol. GL Bud!!!
One eye I am hunting at a Christmas tree farm , bucks already tagging trees
I just had to 4 pointers under my stand
on the same deer?
Another night seeing deer only problem it was 30 yrds from my car on walk out and ran. Oh well.
