Best of luck.

Good luck. I have had good interactions during rain, especially during the rut. Other than it being less than ideal comfort-wise, I bet there will be no negative impact on your hunt. Enjoy the time with friends and any deer is just a bonus.

Sitting here at work, chomping at the bit to head home, winterize my bees, load my car and trailer and head out there. I'm figuring to be on the road by 0500 tomorrow. My back and neck that I blew out over a month ago is coming back to where I can pull my bow again, but at only 55 lbs.. Getting old sucks butt. Anyhow, I'm bringing both bows, my HTR and HALON 32. The HALON shoots flatter at the lower poundage but the HTR draws easier, so it'll be a judgement call on what bow I bring out on any given day.. Anyhow, I have way too much stuff, but like the old saying goes, "it's better to have and not need than to need and not have".. Or the old Army saying, "travel light, freeze at night". I think I have my bases covered.... So tomorrow is when the snowflake ANTIFAs are supposed to be having their day.... Get in my way going to camp, your ass is getting run over. Beep, Beep. LOL

Good luck guys! Hoping some big boys show themselves for you all.

Of course, Morgan has to shoot the biggest one, next will be Michelle's and then probably Kelly's Dad. You guys might as well just shoot the first dink buck that shows up.

"To be honest I’ve been on well over hundreds of blood Trails and with this deer climbing straight up a damn bluff for 250 feet I? think this deer will live to make another scrape! "

Did you read the conclusion of my Ohio hunt? Damn near 600 yards from POI, and he climbed a near vertical cliff that was nearly impossible for human to climb (50 yards long)... Then the blood ran out... Then Matt found him with no blood 75 yards from last spot of blood. High lung entrance, center lung exit.

Good luck Kelly !

Your trail experience was better than mine this morning. I had a big black spot in my trail and I knew it didn’t belong there. I was wishing for a stronger light and a bigger pistol but I just kept walking and the stinking sucker eased off into the woods. Good thing, I wasn’t especially hankering for a Wild West showdown in the dark.

I saw good rut action this morning in my NJ woods - unfortunately 4 bucks were 1.5 yrs old and one was 2.5 yrs old. Have not seen a mature buck since I left Ohio! :(

Good luck Cuz - may today be YOUR day!

Kelly don't be so damn selective today - a 125" 8pt is a helluva nice buck... 130" even better. 150" bucks are not a dime a dozen, even in Ohio. Put one down!

From: Nick Muche
17-Nov-17
Jack, when you've got 14 125"+ bucks it's hard to just shoot anything. Seems he's found the one he wants and is willing to hold out, quit raggin on the man, GEESH! haha

From: Brotsky

From one father of daughters to another, if you get your buck do not field dress it until Morgan's boyfriend arrives. Cutting the balls off that buck while looking at him out of the corner of your eye will send a clear message! Ha!

I have a buddy that knows the feeling of loosing a tote with hunting gear in it. He lost binoculars, rangefinder all his camo, etc. Worse part was it was on his way to hunting camp. He had to borrow from all of us to make the week hunt.

Thanks for sharing your season. What a great thread.

This weather through the Midwest is just nuts! Guys here in KS and MO are saying they saw less deer this year than any recent years. I personally do not think there are less deer, but they are moving more at night. They have their winter coats on already and we are still hitting the 60s and 70s. Discouraging to still be sweating hanging a stand this time of the year. I had insects still flying around me on Saturday. Be safe.

Serious question - Do you have to check them whole? If not why not gutless process the doe? 4 1/4s back straps and tenderloins can't total 100 lbs and that's a heck of a lot easier to handle then dragging a doe out of the woods whole. Sandbrew

He has had some major adversity with his spine and neck, and he just oozes passion for hunting the Whitetail Buck with bow and arrow. Kelly you are lucky to share deer camp with him. Too boot, I hunt just up the road from your lease in Ohio..small world!

what happened?

06-Dec-17
Kelly, I appreciated this thread. We are both in our 50s and I am impressed that you are comfortable with your past successes at hunting that you now enjoy the social aspects more. I feel this is something I do not slow down enough for. I still try to be that focused predator that I was in my 20s and 30s. Even my cabin is basic because it is about just sleeping. I am enjoying your cabin thread equally as much as this one.

You helped me realize it is OK to slow down and just enjoy the entire experience of hunting.

While I am certainly blown away by the success of some posters, we do not have to all have the same goals to be respected. I am not even capable of what many accomplish, but that doesn't mean I enjoy it any less.

Keep at it! Enjoy the journey.
