A duck hunting first

4 posts in this topic

I was out Saturday morning and there was a coon in my spot. He did not want to leave but I kinda coaxed him to. Well when I got to shore I see that he was sitting there having a breakfast of bullheads and the second one was not all the way gone. So, the whole time I am sitting there in the dark I keep looking around to make sure he is not comming back. Well he never did that I know of. However just as the sun fully topped the trees on the other side of the lake I heard a branch snap. I turned around expecting to see that racoon back but there standing about 15 yards from me was a nice 6 point buck. Oh man the heart started pounding! I hope I see one like that next Saturday! Any way he stood there for a while looking in my direction but I dont know if he saw me or just knew there was something there as I was in camo with a camo net over my face. The "woods" that were behing me are 30 feet wide at the most. Was fun to see him all lit up in that morning sun! Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

You now understand that being a "true outdoorsman" has nothing to do with killing stuff. It is about being "out there".

As the years go by it gets better. wink.gif

I have been hunting for 35 years and I have understood that for quite a few years. The true beauty of hunting is being out in the open and spending quality time with family and friends. If we happen to harvest something then that is a bonus. Seeing that buck was truly a special bonus! Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!

      I don't have much skin in the game here.  I take 2 trips a year to Vermilion and absolutely love the lake, area and in particular the West side.  Without question, our goal is to own a property on this lake for retirement.    People hate change.  Simply don't go if you don't like the prices or the new owners.  The restaurant/bar business is a bitch so I say kudos for trying something different.  With any business, previous owners don't let go of gold mines so there was a reason it was for sale.     I'll be a patron the few weeks I'm up there.  If I don't like it, I won't go back.  Premium prices demand premium quality and service.  I hope they succeed.

      Don't believe I've made one single point actually. I've just been honest. Very rare thing on the internet. I'm sure you understand that.
