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!

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.

      Why so many batteries???  lol   I use with weed wacker and leaf blower.  pine needle blower mainly  soooo much nicer than sweeping;

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol
