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

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....

      Just looked at the harbor cam in canal park and looked like there was two guys out fishing from the pier. Now that the gates are open I would say that's what they were doing. Feel free to share any reports you have or would like to share. Good luck all!

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.
