I saw him...

4 posts in this topic

I finally saw a buck I'd like to loose an arrow at. It took harvey lee to hold my hand and tell me exactly where to go to see him, but I finally got a look at him. He was about 80 yards through the woods and I couldn't see him too well, but I did get a peak at him and he's definitely a nice buck. He was with a decent 8 pointer (and a doe) and he was considerably bigger than him. I tried to bleat him over to me, but he wouldn't leave the tail of the gal he was with. Can't wait to get back out and try close the distance another 50 yards.

Go get the deer and show him off. They are in there if one can get on the right trail where they are running.

Have you never saw him before? What changed or what did you change to find this guy??

Nope, I've never seen him before. However, it sounds like harvey lee has seen him. The big change was this- I was sitting in spots where there weren't many deer, plus I think I got hit with a little run of bad luck (coyotes ruined my night three times this year). Also, I haven't been able to sit as much as usual- wife, work, and the addition of a new family member have added to my responsibilities at home. And, I was lucky enough to be able to go on a week long trip to WY in Sep. All of that has resulted in me hunting less this Fall around home.

So... I went where he suggested an WHAMMO! I saw a nice buck. Sorry, nothing too helpful for anyone else, but I'd be lying if I tried to pass it off as me briliantly thinking of the "right spot" to sit based on factors X, Y, and Z. Now, I just need to figure out when I can get out there again to try close the distance a little.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
