Big Buck Disorder

7 posts in this topic

I have to think there are a number of you that can relate. I bounce off the walls when I can't be in the woods during this time of year ("the rut"). Although it may not be the "peak" at the moment, I do know the bucks are sniffing pretty good right now. I saw one on the tail of an unreceptive doe last night. It was a small 6 and we were in our vehicle. But I just wanted to see how many other obsessive big buck, bow hunters can't focus on ANYTHING other than being in the woods right now. I guess I have to wait for tomorrow because of other commitments (what was I thinking making ANY commitments today, it would be an awesome day to be out! Good luck to all of you.

I definately understand where you are coming from. This site is a good way to get rid of a little built up hunting thoughts.

Yeah, I can definitely related. I'm really struggling today. I committed to a social deal tonight, but I'll be in the woods all day tomorrow. Wish I was out there right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just got back from another 3 days of bow hunting. The scrapes are showing up everywhere. I have to work for 3 days before I can get back after them for 4 more days of hunting and it's killing me

Yup. I can't make it out til friday due to work but that's the day. The 3rd of November is the day that myself and many of my buddies have killed our biggest bucks. Sort of superstitious but a great time to be in the woods regardless. The air is getting colder and the deer are getting hotter. I've got the sickness.

I love that Friday too! I'm hoping I can get it done before then, but so far I haven't seen him. Maybe in the morning. I didn't see anything tonight, it was perfectly still and then the front blew in just before dark and the wind was crankin. All I can think about is the big buck that I haven't got a look at yet this season.

Good luck on Friday.

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.

      Here's a couple pictures of one of the 14' boats I redid, a 25hp will be plenty of motor for a 12' boat.  The14' bat in the pictures with the additional weight from the wood would go 26mph with just me in the boat.  As you can se  left the compartment open for the gas tank, so I could monitor the level and so I could breathe better. Send me a message if you have questions.  It's really a fun project to work on these old boats.

      Do you have any pics of the process or finished product by any chance?
    • HugeHogChaser
      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.

      Thanks All.   No big plans this weekend and and the weather has been putting a damper on outdoor projects and chores.    Still I might sneak out for a few hours this weekend.

      In and around narrows is where most people were fishing.  Lots of fish under 14 though.
