That guys a stud, best of luck!
I moved back to WI 2-1/2 years ago, Ive been scouting more and more public land each season and will be on public more this year than private for the first time. I have my sights on some great public...
Date of harvest: October 18th, 2014
Location of harvest: Wausau WI
Time of harvest:...
If you're going to run and gun the best choice is a lone wolf or xop hang on with sticks, it really depends on the style of hunting. I couldn't use a ratchet strap with how I hunt.
October is a month of change, crops change, acorns drop, pressure increases, hormones increase. I think mature deer don't move as far and focus should be bedding but deer are killable.
This fight is happening right now, that's why it's a topic on this forum. A few posts on some hunting forum I agree is a waste of time. You act like something more than maybe some awareness is...
A solution? Pretty obvious that the only solution from the side of federal land remaining federal is to not turn it over to the state, wouldn't think the obvious had to be stated.
Archerytalk is another option if you haven't explored that option. I feel it's worth the effort, setting a goal and reaching it no matter how difficult it may be is very gratifying. Bet your father...
I would agree with your observation, we are predators and scent will naturally alert prey, I don't believe it's a learned response.
I guess I paid between $700.00 to $800.00 for my last to do it myself :confused: Before then I was paying $525. From here out should be pretty cheap.
Seven in 10. That’s the number of Western hunters who rely on public lands for part or all of our annual trips afield.
That figure is from a news source out of Missoula Montana. I'd be interested...
You can see it in the hobby of hunting we all love, a lot easier to put faith in the next gadget that will kill a big buck than that thing called work. The easy way is the new American way.
1-125 Entered by Fitz
I'll help you out
115" - 120"
Completely agree, he's nice but probably is nearing his potential this year. Some come out of the gates putting on a lot of bone, others have a more slow and steady approach.
I'll admit, I wouldn't care if all the wolves in WI were killed, I remember doing just find before their populations grew. If you want to see a wolf go to Canada or visit Fitz.. I went to Canada to...
All anyone can tell from those pics is he's not a fawn or 1 year old, anything after that is a complete guess.
I have an archers choice, it seldom goes with me in the field and when it does I seldom use it. I'd sell it if I didn't hunt the west occasionally. It's a luxury to me, a little practice and knowing...
As little as possible. Last year I put a camera out in August and let it soak until February, plan to do this a lot more in the future. I feel deer have a seasonal pattern, if you catch a buck in an...
Deer sign will tell you the correct elevation. Deer take advantage of wind and thermal currents and once you hit sign setup when entering from below.
Buckeye, is this what you're referring to and how you'd enter that stand location cover allowing?
Once you start finding them it gets pretty easy, my best advise is look where human don't want to go. Not all bedding is created equal and figuring it out is the key to consistent success.
If you can't get back in until Sept I'd stay out until late October, try to time a front and head in early afternoon with stand on back and setup on sign.
On a NW wind I'd expect a buck to be bedded across the valley, so I'd walk these areas and expect the thicket to be a doe bedding and staging area for bucks. Did you see any scrapes, if you did I'd...
