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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
