Been bowhunting for 27 years now and had a first this past Saturday night. I was returning to my truck in the dark when I spooked a large buck on the edge of a cornfield. He ran into the woods and stopped and I could hear him grunting I'm guessing about 30-40 yds.away. I was downwind so he was'nt quite sure what I was, thought I'd have a little fun so I gave him a series of 3 aggressive grunts. WOW!!! all hell breaks loose and he starts snort/wheezing like nothing I've ever heard before and charges straight at me gets 10yds in front of me before he stops,turns around and trots off. I'll tell ya the hairs on the back of my neck are standing straight,I almost pee my pants, and my legs don't stop shaking for 15 minutes! What a rush.It doesn't get any better than this.

Not nearly as exciting but...Sunday morning I had an owl hit my head while I was on stand. No noise, just a serious "thump" on my head in the dark while my eyes were closed.

No, I wasn't asleep and dreaming either. laugh.gif I had just moved my head a bit to check my watch. 6:15. 10 or 15 seconds later, thump!

cool.gif These are the coolest of experiences and a huge part of why we're out there! cool.gif

Same thing happened to me Saturday morning. I was walking to my stand about an hour before sunrise thru the alfalfa field and when I get close to where I have to enter the woods I could make out a deer. I stopped and kneeled down and figured if I gave a couple of grunts the deer would take off. Nope, he covered a 100 yrds in about 5 secs and just when I thought I might have to shoot him to get him to stop he pulled up at about 15 yds. Head lowered and pawed the ground twice. He was only a little 4 or 5 pointer but he was ready to brawl!! Found 5 fresh scrapes within 50 yds of my stand at daybreak, gonna have to cut out of work early a couple nights this week! laugh.gif

I had a similar experience sunday night as I have stated in an earlier post. I was leaving the stand a little earlier than usual because I hadn't seen a deer all night. I get into the field and see a deer with his nose down running all over. I slowly work my way back into the woods. I grunt a few times. All of the sudden from my right, I hear grunting. Here comes another buck out into the field. I grunt a few more times. He comes in to about 30 yards and stops. At this time I'm thinking that this might not be the smartest move. He was a BIG deer and it was getting really dark. Finally, I saw him take off, but for a minute there, I thought I was going to have to do battle. blush.gif

I guess I could have gone Davy Crockett on him. Any regs on stabbing a deer to death?! blush.gif Just thought the arrow might have been the safest alternative (for me anyways), I've already been to the ER one too many times this year.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      What size  holes ?

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
