Getting Deer out of rushes

5 posts in this topic

I hunted with a group of 9 and we walked everything. When we walked sloughs the deer would not get up unless you stepped right on them. When they did get up they wouldn't come out. They would just move to a different spot in the slough. The big does and bucks definitly won't get up unless you step on them. Does anyone have any tricks on how to get them out.

We just round up as many people as possible and give it a shot. We yell, talk loud, break stuff...just try to make as much noise as possible as you weave back and forth. Sometimes the occasional pause will make them nervous and they will bust out. Its a tough one crazy.gif

You should set up a tripod stand for next year in the swamp. Swamp hunting during the gun season can be really good. Or sit along a major trail running into the swamp.

In wetlands you really don't need to get up that high to have a good advantage.

Good luck!

      I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.

      As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes.  I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away.   Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years.  I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry.  I was ON the path when I got wet.  Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast).  The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking.  Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again.  And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks.  Spud on...   tg
