5:14 PM LIVE from PA*
Opening day at my PA property. Got two shooters here and you can set your watch by them. Couldn’t wait to get down here. They were both here last night!

My new plot
I wiped out this plot six weeks ago and it’s amazing! Combined patriot clover with Blackhawk and a small amount of straight ladino. Drawing them in like crazy.

My little nest over my plot. If you look closely the Christmas tree still has the lights on it!

I owe someone on Bowsite a big thank you for the tip on brushing in my stand using fake Christmas trees. This is the best!

Good luck on your evening hunt. Hope the deer are on schedule one more night.

Shoot!

I think it was the Gene and Barry Wensel that started using old Christmas trees unless I am mistaken.

So, what time should I set my alarm for, Pat?

Right now. Oblivious. Charlie, remember the early years? He’d be long dead. We’ve come a long way since then.

From: Buffalo1

Is that a twig on a tree or a rope tied the the deer’s left hind leg?

This could give new meaning to Jake’s “live decoy” comment !!

From: kota-man

Ha! That’s funny. Does look like he’s “tied up”. I think Greg just determine how you, Charlie, Jake and Tom are so successful! ??

That was fun! The two shooters never showed. I bet they got bumped since it’s opening day.

I did have this 8 show up. He would have been the best buck I killed here in 26 years. I passed him because I still have a few days to try for my two shooters.

By 6pm I had four different bucks in the plot. The 8 sparred with this smaller buck.

Buck bedded 25 yards away and stayed until it was dark. I nudged them off the field with a coyote caller 100 yards away.

He bedded 25 yards from my stand and stayed there until dark. I used my Foxpro caller to clear the field.

That tip was another winner! I did a yippee pack howls and all the deer trotted off.

THANKS!!

I love the Christmas tree idea. Gives a whole new meaning to “putting up the tree!”

Is Connecticut the only state where live hunts are done ??? In your little 5,000 square mile state.... You guys must have all the corners covered on any given night...... :-)

After reading Pat`s post about clearing the field, was just wondering if anyone has used an app of coyote yapps for your android phone? That would be handy, as I don`t own a predator call.

From: Brianc1986

From: Mad Trapper

Pat the coyote call probably sent them into the next county... Maybe could have scared them off by turning on those Christmas tree lights?????

From: TrapperKayak

Pat, nice setup. That 8 isn't bad, so the shooters must be real nice. t-roy, do you hunt out of that old stand? It looks like the boards are rotted. I'd have to give that one a pass.

From: Surfbow
07-Oct-19
I think you should plug in the Christmas lights...

"Can't wait for morning to find a buck under the Christmas tree!!"

From: t-roy

Is it legal to use artificial lights when hunting in Pennsylvania?!!

Trapperkayak....yes I do, and picture is probably misleading. The stand is only 2 yrs old and I used pressure treated lumber on it. I also spray painted the boards with flat black paint when I first put them up so the fresh wood wouldn’t stand out.
